"Pineapple Express" Can't Beat "The Dark Knight"

Posted: August 10th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Pineapple Express" CanSubmit Comment
"The Dark Knight" rallied on Saturday to win the weekend, grossing $26 million and giving it the top spot at the box office for a fourth consecutive week.

The "Batman Begins" sequel pushed past "Shrek 2" to become the third highest domestic grosser of all time with a total of $441.5 million. It's expected to beat "Star Wars" in the next week before finally settling at No. 2, behind "Titanic."

The stoner comedy "Pineapple Express" took in $22.4 million for the weekend and a solid $40.4 million total since its Wednesday debut. Weekend take was lower than last August's Judd Apatow-produced comedy "Superbad," which opened at $33 million, but "Pineapple" easily wins in a first five-day comparison.

"Pineapple" actually beat "Dark Knight" on Friday, its third daily victory in a row, with $7.9 million compared to $7.6 million, but fell far behind on Friday, when "Knight" surged to $10.5 million and the Apatow comedy declined to $7.6 million.

Weekend's other opener was "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2," which bowed to $10.8 million and a total of $19.7 million since starting on Wednesday. Both figures are higher than the $9.8 million the first pic in the girl-focused book adaptation series premiered to in 2005.

In limited release, "Elegy" opened to $102,441 at six locations, or $17,074 per play, the biggest of the weekend. Adaptation of the Philip Roth novel "The Dying Animal" expands to the top 25 markets in two weeks.
