Aniston Flops, Stallone Still Soars At The U.s. Box Office

JENNIFER ANISTON's new sperm donor comedy has flopped at the U.S. box office, despite the actress' massive publicity campaign and her spat with newsman BILL O' REILLY.
O'Reilly took issue with comments Aniston made about wannabe mums seeking out donors, making her movie The Switch a big talking point - but even that wasn't enough to lure in film fans.
The movie, which co-stars Jason Bateman, opened with a disappointing $8.1 million (£5.3 million) in the U.S. and didn't even make the top five. It landed in eighth spot behind the debuts of Twilight spoof Vampires Suck, Lottery Ticket and Piranha 3D.
Sylvester Stallone's action blockbuster The Expendables held the number one spot for a second week with a $16.5 million (£11 million) weekend take. Vampires Suck came in second with $12.2 million (£8.1 million) and Julia Roberts' Eat Pray Love slipped a spot to three with $12 million (£8 million).
Comedies Lottery Ticket and The Other Guys rounded out the new top five with $10 million (£6.6 million) weekends.
