Never doubt Jerry Bruckheimer’s Midas touch at the box office. After all, G-Force — his 3-D kiddie film about guinea pigs (that’s right, guinea pigs!) — earned the top spot at the box office on Friday with $11.5 million, beating the predicted winner Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. The boy wizard was also one-upped by the Katherine Heigl rom-com The Ugly Truth, which snagged $10.8 million. On the bright side, Potter‘s $9.3 million third-place finish for the day managed to push it past the $200 million mark, finishing at $201.1. It is the fifth film to surpass that milestone this year. Be sure to check back tomorrow for full weekend results.
