"Ghost Rider" rides to top of box office

Well, that’s a bit of a surprise.

According to studio estimates, “Ghost Rider” was No. 1 at the box office this weekend, collecting $44.5 million — twice as much as No. 2 on the list, “Bridge to Terabithia.”

It’s more than I would have guessed, though it’s about the same as “Daredevil” - another movie starring a lesser-known Marvel hero and opening in February — made in it’s first weekend a few years ago.

It’s also, by the way, the biggest opening weekend ever for star Nicolas Cage.
