As expected, "High School Musical 3: Senior Year," topped the box office for a second straight week pulling in $15,035, upping his two-week take to $61, 753. And yes, there's already talk about adding a fourth installment to this cash cow franchise.

"Zack and Miri Make a Porno" came in second in its first weekend of release, raking in $10.6 million, and "Saw V" was just behind it with $10.1 million.

Angelina Jolie's latest flick, "Changeling," actually opened up in limited locations last week, but came in fourth after opening wide this weekend with $9.4 million. Rounding out the Top 10 were: "The Haunting of Milly Hartley," "Beverly Hills Chihuahua," "The Secret Life of Bees" (dropping from sixth to seventh), "Max Payne," "Eagle Eye" and "Pride & Glory."

"W.," which dropped 52 percent, fell out of the Top 10. It came in 11th, making just over a million dollars.

"HSM3" dropped 53 percent, but still managed to beat out some pretty tough competition. It will be interesting to see how it does against "Soul Men," which opens up this weekend starring Samuel L. Jackson and the late Bernie Mac.
