Clearly no one was in a rockin' mood this weekend. "Rock of Ages," the musical adaptation starring Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin and Catherine Zeta-Jones, earned just $15 million over its opening weekend, the Huffington Post reports. It ranked behind "Prometheus" and even "Madagascar 3," proving a star-studded cast can lose out to aliens and cuddly, animated lions no matter how sexy Cruise's locks. "Rock of Ages" is the story of a small town girl and city boy who meet on the Sunset Strip while pursuing their Hollywood dreams, says the movie's official writeup. This is Cruise's worst wide release opening since "Lions for Lambs" in 2007, the Post also reports. -Alissa Fleck
