Spring break boosted the box office on Friday, with Dream Works Animation's 3D "The Croods" edging out new action thriller "Olympus Has Fallen."
"The Croods" earned a sterling $11.6 million, and is projected to pick up around $34 million for the weekend. It features the voices of Ryan Reynolds, Emma Stone and Nicolas Cage.
The first of two White House-set action films being released this year, "Olympus" surpassed expectations for a solid $10.4 million opening. Look for the film -- which stars Gerard Butler, Morgan Freeman and Aaron Eckhart -- to earn around $28 million in its debut weekend.
Sam Raimi's "Oz the Great and Powerful" continues to live up to its name at the box office, conjuring up another $5.6 million. So far the year's biggest hit has earned $161.1 million.
The Halle Berry thriller "The Call" also continues to do strong business in its second weekend, as the low budget film dialed up another $2.6 million. Its domestic total now stands at $24.8 million.
Harmony Korine's divisive "Spring Breakers" opened wide on just over 1,100 screens this weekend, after a one-week headstart in New York and L.A.
The comedy, which stars Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson and James Franco, nabbed $2.1 million, for a total of $2.5 million.
Trailing "Spring Breakers" in sixth place was the new Tina Fey-Paul Rudd comedy "Admission," which opened on more than 2,100 screens and only took in $2 million. It will likely pick up a disappointing, but not disastrous, $6 million or so for the three-day period.
