TOP TWENTY BOX OFFICE

NEW YORK (AP) — Neill Blomkamp's science-fiction thriller "Elysium" led a crowded field at the box office, topping the weekend with $29.8 million.

That was enough to best Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston's comedy "We're the Millers," the "Cars" spinoff "Planes," and the fantasy sequel "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters." But despite stars Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, the $115 million "Elysium" still fell short of Blomkamp's debut, 2009's Oscar-nominated "District 9."

List of youngest birth mothers( A Nigerian is on this list)

A Mexican girl has become one of the world’s youngest mothers after giving birth aged just NINE .

The youngster, named only as Dafne, gave birth to a 6lb baby girl on January 27 at the Zoquipan Hospital, in Mexico's western Jalisco state.

But the young girl is in fact four years older than the youngest mother in medical history, who was just FIVE when she gave birth.

Here is a run down of the 10 youngest mums…

Prison Bae: This Model From Miami Might Have The Hottest Mugshot Of The Year (Photo)

There aren’t many things in this world more bittersweet than taking an attractive mugshot.Being able to look attractive at one of life’s lowest moments is a truly admirable feat, and anyone capable of turning heads while facing criminal charges certainly deserves credit for it.Unfortunately, there’s one major problem with having a hot mugshot: The fact that it’s a mugshot in the first place.I’m willing to guess that 22-year-old Angela Coates wasn’t exactly thrilled to be arrested for disorderly conduct back in August.However, something tells me that the model wasn’t too disappointed with the results of the picture she took while being processed.In the Year of the Attractive Mugshot, it’s not easy to set yourself apart, but showing up to jail looking like this is a pretty good strategy when it comes to getting everyone’s attention.
