Rounding out the top five at the box office in estimated totals are Pixar/Disney's "Brave" ($23.5 million), followed by the just-released Oliver Stone helmed Mexican drug cartel caper "Savages" ($16.6 million) and the Channing Tatum male stripper flick "Magic Mike" ($14.9 million).

Also of note is the new 3D movie "Katy Perry: Part Of Me" - as the pop star produced documentary-style creation landed itself in eighth place with forecasts of $7.3 million in opening weekend earnings.
