‘The Hangover’ Dominates for Second Weekend

hangover

What’s the first movie of the summer to top the box office two weeks in a row? Not Up, not X-Men, and not even Star Trek. Instead it’s a film that nobody was really even talking about at the beginning of the summer – the booze-fueled comedy The Hangover. It was number one for the second straight week, hauling in a modest $33.4 million. Up stays at number 2 pulling in another $30.5 million. The small releases opening this week all had impressive takes with Food, Inc. having the largest per theater take of any film this week. Moon and Tetro were number 2 and 3 respectively for average earnings this week.

Here are the Box Office estimates from Box Office Mojo:
