This weekend was the calm before the storm as Disturbia claimed the #1 spot at the box office for the third weekend in a row, easily fending off new releases The Invisible (#2) and Next (#3), who only grossed a paltry $7,606,000 and $7,200,000 respectively.

It was a relatively quiet weekend at the box office, with the #1 film grossing less that $10,000,000 - a rare occurence.

However, next weekend sees the release of Spider-Man 3, which is geared up to be a blockbuster of massive proportions. It pretty much goes without saying that Disturbia's 3 week reign will be put to an end on May 4 as Spidey swings into theaters.
