Tropic Thunder Is No. 1 For the Second Week in a Row

Ben Stiller's Tropic Thunder won the top spot at the box office for the second weekend in a row, earning an estimated $16.1 million. This makes Tropic Thunder, Iron Man, and The Dark Knight the only movies to have stayed at No. 1 for two consecutive weeks this Summer (so that's two major box office winners for Robert Downey Jr.!).

Following closely behind in the No. 2 spot was The House Bunny, which earned an estimated $15.1 million its first weekend out. Coming in third was the Death Race remake with about $12.3 million. In fourth place was The Dark Knight, followed by Star Wars: The Clone Wars at No. 5.

I didn't think the Rainn Wilson comedy The Rocker would do very well, but I'm surprised to see how badly it did. The comedy failed to crack the top 10 and only earned about $2.7 million.

Hamlet 2, which was all the rage at Sundance this year, had a limited release and brought in an estimated $435,294. The offbeat comedy will have a wider release this Wednesday.

I LOVE Tropic Thunder. It was the first truly funny movie I've seen in a while! And I'm really excited for Hamlet 2.

i thought TT really was great - it wasn't what i expected - and Tom's role wasn't at all what i expected either. from all the talk about it - i didn't think that it would going to be as significant as it was - but i'm glad that i saw the movie. surpassed my expectations. i still really want to see house bunny though - and since i saw The Girls Next Door this weekend - i now know that they are in it so i want to see it even more.

i thought tropic thunder was funny! I don't think I can drag my bf to see house bunny so I'll probably pass on that one. And bummer about the Rocker. I don't remember seeing a lot of promotions for it and kind of forgot it was coming out this weekend!
