With its three-day, $41M weekend, "Cloverfield" sets a new January record, beating out the re-release of the original Star Wars in 1997. It already sets the record for highest earnings on Martin Luther King weekend, beating out 2002's "Black Hawk Down", which brought in $33.6M over the whole four-day stretch.
If I absolutely have to sit through a romantic comedy (and for my relationship's sake, I do), I'll happily take "27 Dresses" which provides more Katherine Heigl goodness. And it looks like another winner for James Marsden.
The notable #11 is Oscar-contender "There Will Be Blood", which narrowly missed the top 10, despite its limited (389 screens nationwide) release.

"Wocka Wocka...who wants to hear a funny-ass joke?"
A few theories on that. Its been pseudo establish the Tardis tends to go where its needed, so he might not be able to find someone to cure her. Plus, she never said anything about dying until the end and only to Karzden.
