Box Office: Tropic Thunder Wins Again


Labor Day weekend officially signals the close of the Summer box office season, and this year's ended on, as Variety described it, "a whimper" as opposed to a bang. Tropic Thunder landed in the top spot for the third weekend in a row, pulling in an estimated $14.3 million over four days. The second spot went to Babylon A.D. which earned an estimated $12 million. The Dark Knight came in at No. 3, surpassing the $500 million mark on Sunday.

Traitor starring Don Cheadle and Guy Pearce opened this weekend and came in fifth place with $10 million, just behind The House Bunny, which came in No. 4 with $10.2 million.

My hubby and I saw it last night. I think it is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. Love the head scene. Gross and funny all at once.

TT doing so well seems like it has more to do with the lack of anything good in theaters right now than the quality of that particular film. There's nothing very good out right now. I'm ready for some better options.

i think that it's great that TT came in first again, it's showing that people do appreciate the humor of it. besides, i told a lot of people that it wasn't at all what i expected and told them they SHOULD go see it. as for the #2 movie - i can't remember if i even ever heard of it - but i guess with the lack of movies opening this weekend - it makes sense that it could do ok.
