The $19 million box office debut is the largest in Michael's career, however, taking inflation into consideration, his best would be Basic Instinct.

Even though Michael has the number one film right now in the country, he is keeping focus on what really matters — his beautiful family and kicking throat cancer.

In other box office news, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole opened in second place with an estimated $16.3 million.

Ben Affleck's The Town ranked in at No. 3 with $16 million, followed by Easy A with 10. 7 million.
