Pineapple Express is No Match for The Dark Knight


The Dark Knight is unstoppable. The caped crusader topped the box office yet again for its fourth consecutive week, taking in just over $26 million this weekend and bringing its total gross to an approximate $441.5 million.

Pineapple Express, David Gordon Green’s new stoner comedy starring Seth Rogen and James Franco, opened in the number two spot with $22.4 million this weekend, but reached a total of $40.5 million from its Wednesday release.

Brendan Fraser’s The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor took in about $16.1 million, while the tween girl friendship film, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2, made an approximate $10.8 in its opening weekend. The John C. Reilly-Will Ferrell comedy Step Brothers slipped to the number five spot with a mere $8.9 million.

Will The Dark Knight’s heroic sweeping of the box office continue next week when Ben Stiller’s much anticipated Tropic Thunder and Woody Allen’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona hit theaters? Find out on next Monday’s Top of the Box Office report.
