The movie, which also stars country singer Tim McGraw, made an estimated $20.4 million over the weekend to take it's three-week tally to a staggering $129.
The "Twilight" sequel has slipped to second with $15.7 million and Jake Gyllenhaal and Tobey Maguire's hard-hitting new movie Brothers debuts at three with a $9.7 million opening weekend.
Robert De Niro's new movie, Everybody's Fine, has become the latest box office flop - it just made the top 10 at nine with a disappointing $4 million opening.
