Contraband Tops Box Office!

Contraband Tops Box Office!
"Contraband" managed to steal the top slot away from competitors at the weekend box office.
The Universal action drama film starring Mark Wahlberg as a reformed smuggler debuted above expectations at No. 1 with $24 million, while Disney's 3-D rerelease of "Beauty and the Beast" waltzed into the No. 2 position with $18.5 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. Both films helped boost Hollywood's business after a sluggish holiday season.
