Thor held on to the top spot at the box office last weekend, but it had some competition from Paul Feig, Judd Apatow and some bridesmaids.

Other new releases last weekend were Everything Must Go ($825,100), Hesher ($126,811), Go For It! ($125,000), L’amour fou ($35,000), The First Grader ($22,568), Hey, Boo: Harper Lee and ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ ($5,450), Skateland ($5,165) and How to Live Forever ($3,400), all out in limited release.

Out in limited release are Louder Than a Bomb, 35 and Ticking, Bloodworth, Cost of a Soul, The Lion of Judah (which is about “a bold lamb (Judah) and his stable friends [who] try to avoid the sacrificial alter [sic] the week preceding the crucifixion of Christ.” No, really.), Ranchero and Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris, which opened the Cannes Film Festival last week.
