The 3-D animated movie G-Force was the top movie at the box office this weekend, opening with an estimated $32.2 million and toppling the sixth Harry Potter film from its perch atop the rankings, the Associated Press reported.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince came in a close second, with an estimated $30 million. That's a whopping 61 percent drop from its huge opening last weekend of $79.5 million.

The sixth installment in the Harry Potter franchise has now made $222 million total, which is $14 million ahead of where part five, The Order of the Phoenix, was after 12 days in theaters in 2007. This week, Half-Blood Prince will start showing on 166 IMAX screens, which the last Harry Potter movie did from the start.
