While the new Facebook movie, “The Social Network,” wasn’t exactly a blockbuster, it did well enough to win the box office weekend, beating out new horror flicks “Let Me In” and “Case 39”.

“The Social Network” earned $23 million to take the #1 spot on this weekend’s box office. The David Fincher-directed film is an adult drama surrounding the creation of the most popular social network on the planet, Facebook.

It stars Jesse Eisenberg as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, and the only marquee star on the cast was Justin Timberlake.

Sony called the debut a “fantastic start.”

“We couldn’t have been more happy to have a ‘two’ in front of this” movie’s debut, Sony distribution chief Rory Bruer told USA Today. “We had great reviews, great opening, it worked on all fronts, and we think it’s going to be around for a long, long time.”

The animated Warner Bros. film, “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole”, stayed put at #2 in its second weekend earning $10.8 million; while last week’s top movie, the “Wall Street” sequel “Money Never Sleeps, fell to #3 with $10.1 million.

The Ben Affleck-directed “The Town” fell one spot to #4 this weekend, earning $10 million; and “Easy A” closed out the top 5 with $7 million.

Among the newcomers, the low-budget horror film Case 39, starring Renee Zellweger, placed at #7 with $5.4 million. And, the horror remake, “Let Me In,” did $5.3 million to put it at #8.

That wraps things up this weekend. Next weekend, look out for the release of the Katherine Heigl comedy “Life as We Know It,” the 3D horror film “MY Soul To Take,” and the Diane Lane sports drama “Secretariat.”

This weekend’s top 10 is as follows:

1 – “The Social Network,” $23 million.

2 – “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole,” $10.8 million.

3 – “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,” $10.1 million.

4 – “The Town,” $10 million.

5 – “Easy A,” $7 million.

6 – “You Again,” $5.5 million.

7 – “Case 39,” $5.35 million.
