Ryan Reynolds' "Green Lantern" was #1 at the Box-Office for Father's Day weekend, earning $52.7 million. But with expectations of at least the mid-$50 million range, and upwards of $60 to $70 million if the 3D drew viewers in, the film's opening isn't as thrilling as it could have been.

Maybe it's "Green Lantern's" not-so-great reviews (it currently has a 26% rating on Rotten Tomatoes) or the uneven marketing campaign, but in comparison to "Thor," another recent superhero film's opening weekend of $65.7 million, "Green Lantern" undeniably came up short.

Check out the trailer for "Green Lantern" below:

The other opener this weekend was "Mr. Popper's Penguins," starring Jim Carrey, which came in at #3. Bringing in $18.2 million, "Mr. Popper's Penguins" (with a 46% on Rotten Tomatoes) couldn't overcome "Super 8" (83% on Rotten Tomatoes), which came in at #2, earning another $21.2 million.

"The Hangover Part II" (35% on Rotten Tomatoes) rounded out the Top 5, earning another $21.4 million. The film's worldwide gross has now reached $488 million, surpassing it's original's gross of $468 million. "The Hangover Part II" is now the biggest R-rated comedy globally and the combined box-office for both the original and it's sequel now exceeds $1 billion in earnings.

Check out the rest of the results below:
