For the first time in several weeks, the top-grossing movie this weekend wasn't based on a comicbook, as "Blades of Glory" and "Meet the Robinsons" took the top two spots with $33 million and $25 million grosses respectively.

But it's "300" thats' showing some legs, leapfrogging last week's top film, "TMNT," for third place, bringing in $11 million in its fourth weekend out. Domestic cume of $179 million seems assured to top the $200 million mark shortly.

"TMNT" took a steep plunge, falling 62 percent with a weekend gross of about $9 million and a domestic cume of $38.

Comics pics take a short break, but the summer juggernaut is looming just around the corner, with "Spider-Man 3" a mere month away ..
