Animated film The Croods soared to the top spot at the box office this weekend, with an impressive $44.7 million haul in its opening weekend, Box Office Mojo reports. But coming in second with a surprisingly strong $30.5 million showing was Olympus Has Fallen, the action thriller about a White House takeover starring Morgan Freeman and Gerard Butler.

Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd
The Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers will go head to head in this Sunday's Super Bowl — but, let's face it, half the people who tune in will primarily be interested in the commercials rather than the game.

Now we can finally watch Green Acres Friends the way it was meant to be seen.
Friends: The Complete Series Blu-ray box set hits stores Tuesday for the first time, featuring all 236 episodes completely remastered, with 17 hours of extras from the original DVDs and more than three hours of all-new bonus features. Among the new content: New retrospective documentaries, a never-before-seen gag reel, and the original script and producer's cut of Season 8's "The One Where Rachel Tells Ross," which includes a Monica (Courteney Cox) and Chandler (Matthew Perry) story line that had to be modified in the wake of 9/11. The 21-disc collection is must-have for any diehard Friends fan who has been there since Ross (David Schwimmer) grabbed a spoon or is just learning what the "Joey special" is now in syndication.
