"Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" took third place with $24 million. The film has now earned $340 million domestically for a worldwide total of $672 million. The sequel is only $36 million from surpassing the worldwide take of the first movie.

Teen comedy "I Love You, Beth Cooper," starring Hayden Panettiere, grossed an estimated $5 million from 1,858 theaters to place No. 7 for the weekend.

I enjoyed this film immensely.. and boy, that midget armed, penguin shaped (albeit cute face) stumpy Hayden Panettiere can't catch a break. First Heroes goes down the toilet in quality as well as the ratings, now... well her film career isn't exactly blooming like all the 18-20 years old fanboys thought it would.

Glad to see Bruno winning money, I just hope it keeps it up and reaches 100 millions

I guess people want to see others wierded out by a gay rather than a foreigner.

so does sbc have any other characters to use for his next movie or is he done?
Ranma-Irias writes:

he is done I suppose - he already used Ali G in another movie I kinda wanted to see Ali G do some kind of movie in this style but I pretty much doubt it - mostly because Ali G is more known and people will now be extremely careful. - Perhaps he will now star in other movies but who knows in the future maybe a cross over or a new character created.

Cohen beat out Depp (and when Depp has to audition... you know he wants the role) in an audition to play Freddie Mercury, whenever they get around to that story.

@ Ranger: woa that sounds pretty good (about the Freddy Mercury/Queen movie). I think SBC could pull it off. Depp would be nice too in that role but leave it to SBC. I can see him as Freddy.

I misread that title as 'Bruno takes fist this weekend'.

That's probably how it was to have read.

yeah we all know the man is funny. I thought it was just as good as borat. but still when the hell is the queen bio coming out. and it is not much of a surprise to me that he beat out depp, i mean in sweeney todd, when they were having there sing off. sasha proved he had a better voice, plus the man looks more like thim than depp does.
