"Paul Blart: Mall Cop" has nabbed the top spot at the box office again this weekend.

The Kevin James comedy about a bumbling shopping center security guard earned $21.5 million. It's grossed nearly $65 million in its two weeks of release and appears on its way to surpass $100 million.

The third installment of the "Underworld" series is faring well in its debut. "Underworld: Rise of the Lycans" is a prequel that looks at the roots of a feud between vampires and werewolves. It made $20.7 million.

Clinton Eastwood's "Gran Torino," "Hotel for Dogs" and "Slumdog Millionaire" round out the top five. Studio executives say the drama about a game-show contestant from the slums of Mumbai has gotten a boost from its recent haul of awards, including top honors from the Producers Guild of America last night. It's also won four Golden Globe awards and earned 10 Oscar nominations, including one for best picture.
