Samuel L. Jackson, a man whose films have made more money than any other working actor, helped Will Smith make even more cheddar this weekend.

"Lakeview Terrace," the crime thriller starring Jackson as a cop who has issues with his new neighbors, soared to the top of the domestic box office, pulling in $15.6 million. The film, which also stars Kerry Washington, was executive produced by Smith and even features his wife Jada's baby brother Caleb Pinkett in a minor role.

Coming in second was last week's top flick "Burn After Reading" with $11.3 million followed by Kate Hudson's "My Best Friend's Girl" with $8.3 million, "Igor" with $8 million and "Righteous Kill" with Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson with $7.7 million.

Tyler Perry's "The Family That Preys" dropped from the No. 2 spot to No. 5 with $7.5 million.
