Summer Box Office Ends a Success

It wasn’t the biggest weekend for movies, but Labor Day weekend marks the end of the summer season, which has been pretty close to last years, only down 1%.

The weekend saw five new releases, but holdover ‘Tropic Thunder’ won the competition, bringing in $14.3 million. Vin Diesel’s action pic ‘Babylon A.D.’ despite some bad press from the director brought in $12 million and placed second.

None of the weekends opening comedies did very well, ‘Disaster Movie’ opened to abysmal reviews, and placed in 7th place with $6.9 million. ‘College,’ didn’t even make it into the top 10.

1. Tropic Thunder $14.3M
2. Babylon A.D. $12M
3. The Dark Knight $11M
4. The House Bunny $10.5M
5. Traitor $10M
6. Death Race $8.19M
7. Disaster Movie $7M
8. Mamma Mia! $5.79M
9. Pineapple Express $4.5M
10. Vicky Cristina Barcelona $3.53M
