Box office: 'Unstoppable' lives up to its name on Friday

"Megamind" took in $7.9 million, making it "Unstoppable's" biggest competition for the weekend, with early estimates showing the two neck and neck. "Due Date" didn't fair as well as "Megamind" in its second week, with $5.5 million, but still bested other new releases.
