20th Century Fox's superhero sequel "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer" debuts mightily to shove last week's top holder "Ocean's Thirteen" on the list.

Debuting at $58.1 million in ticket sales, the superhero flick triumphantly soars to secure the No. 1 title in the competition as the number proves far bigger than the $19.7 million booty that last week's champ "" has garnered, thereby forcing it to go one notch to the second position this time.

Also takes a step lower to be the second runner-up is Universal Pictures' comedy "" which delightfully remains strong in its third spin on the chart for its capability to add another $14.1 million into its pocket to make a total gross of $90 million. "" and "" pop up behind to round out the big five with respective income of $12.4 million and $9.25 million.
