It was a great weekend to be a panda. The Jack Black starred ‘Kung Fu Panda’ pulled in $60m to take the top spot for the weekend, with Adam Sandler’s ‘You Don’t Mess with the Zohan’ trailing in 2nd place, with a $40m take.
‘Indiana Jones’ showed its legs, with $22.8m and ‘Sex and the City’ was a close fourth with $21.3m. ‘Sex and the City,’ had the sharpest decline, with a 63% drop since its opening weekend last week. ‘City,’ has brought in just under $100 million in its first 10 days in release.
In compared with 2007, the box office is up 32%, so, people would rather sit in a theater then watch a crappy bootleg.
