Box Office: Tropic Thunder Takes the Top Spot


Even though Tropic Thunder is technically No. 1 this weekend, The Dark Knight is still being called the biggest winner because it is "the second highest grossing pic of all time after Titanic domestically." Ben Stiller's comedy earned an estimated $26 million while the Batman sequel took in $16.7 million and has a total gross of $471.5 million.

The rest of the top 10 was shaken up a bit as well this weekend: Star Wars: The Clone Wars came in third place, followed by the horror flick Mirrors at No. 4 and Pineapple Express rounded out the top five.

Woody Allen's Vicky Cristina Barcelona opened this weekend at No. 10, and the new 3-D animated flick Fly Me to the Moon came in at No. 11.

Jude C, I will admit that I am usually annoyed a bit by Jack Black, but he was actually really great in this one. He was nicely subdued.

That movie was so Freaken funny...way funnier then I expected. Ya gotta be into Ben Stiller movies to like it since he did write it, direct it, and star in it. My friends and I have been quoting that movie since :)

I want to see this for RDJ and Ben Stiller, but I refuse to pay money for Jack Black to annoy me.
