Harry who? “Ocean’s Eleven,” an all-star remake of the 1961 Rat Pack escapade, trumped “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” at the box office this weekend. “Ocean’s,” with George Clooney and company, enjoyed the best December opening ever, according to industry estimates Sunday. The movie played especially well with younger women, Dan Fellman, president of distribution for Warner Bros. (which, like PEOPLE, is part of AOL Time Warner), told the Associated Press. Not surprising, since the movie, about a plot to steal $150 million from Vegas casinos, also stars Brad Pitt, Matt Damon and Andy Garcia. Oh, and Julia Roberts. Reviews were mixed to appreciative. The weekend’s Top 10, according to studio estimates, is as follows:

1. “Ocean’s Eleven,” $39.3 million
2. “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” $14.8 million
3. “Behind Enemy Lines,” $8.1 million
4. “Monsters, Inc.”, $6.7 million
5. “Spy Game,” $4.6 million
6. “Black Knight,” $3.3 million
7. “Shallow Hal,” $2.3 million
8. “Out Cold,” $1.4 million
9. “Amelie,” $1.1 million
10. “Domestic Disturbance,” $950,000
