It looks like Ghost Rider has finally run out of gas. Though Columbia Pictures had upped their ad campaign to survive one more weekend before the release of the Warner Bros' titan, 300, not one but two new releases helped push the film to number three.

Box Office: Wild Hogs, Zodiac, Ghost Rider

Family comedy was the name of the game this weekend with Wild Hogs taking in a whopping $38 million off 3,287 engagements.

Since there can only be one lead biker, Ghost Rider dropped 43% to land the third spot. The film has grossed $94.7 million since its release - a number that is pretty impressive considering the reviews the film received.

But not even Ghost Rider's flames could hold up to a tag team from Tim Allen, John Travolta, Martin Lawrence and William H. Macy.

William Fincher's Zodiac had a natural draw amongst the Seven crowd and took the number two spot with $13.1 million off 2,362 screens. Not too shabby, but it is always a guess on whether films like this have any staying power - especially with early complaints on the film's extended running time.

Black Snake Moan's talented cast needed better marketing. Though I could have swore I saw TV spots for the film on multiple occasions, most people I talked to over the weekend never heard of a film that has Christina Ricci running around in white panties. Moan took the #8 with $4 million of 1,252 screens.

Hogs helped bring the combined weekend box office to $100.8 million, a number that is much higher than last year's $77.5 million.

Stay tuned for updates.
