Monday Movie ReCap

So martial arts took the number one spots at this weekend’s box office with Kung Fu Panda coming in at the top. The cartoon, which features the vocal stylings of Jack Black and Angelina Jolie pulled in a sizable amount beating out Don’t Mess with the Zohan by around $20 million. Zohan is Adam Sandler’s return to the big screen with a slapstick comedy in a few years with a turn as an ex-Israeli soldier, so I am not sure how the second place finish will play out in his future endeavors. Indiana Jones came in third, Sex and the City dropped to fourth place (even with the accelerated advertising I saw) and The Strangers rounds out the top five. What is crazy about this list to me is the continued presence of Baby Mama and What Happens in Vegas on the top ten list.

Here is the rest of the Box Office Top ten, courtesy of Box Office Mojo.

1. Kung Fu Panda - $60 million
2. You Don’t Mess with the Zohan - $40 million
3. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull - $23 million
4. Sex and the City: The Movie - $21.3 million
5. The Strangers - $9.2 million
6. Iron Man - $7.5 million
7. The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian - $5.5 million
8. What Happens in Vegas - $3.4 million
9. Baby Mama - $779,000
10. Made of Honor - $775,000
