Video game adaptation Max Payne, starring Mark Wahlberg, dominated the box office this past weekend, grossing $18 million. Beverly Hills Chihuahua lost its top dog status, earning $11.2 million and slipping down to number two. New movie The Secret Life of Bees, with Dakota Fanning and Queen Latifah, debuted at number three with $11 million, while Oliver Stone’s highly anticipated President Bush biopic W. came in at number four with $10.5 million. Rounding out the top five was Shia LaBeouf’s Eagle Eye, still going strong in its fourth week in theaters and pulling in $7.3 million.
Next weekend’s debuts include High School Musical 3: Senior Year, SAW V and crime drama Pride and Glory. Will one of these movies be able to take down Max Payne? Our bet is on a group of singing high-schoolers, but find out in next week’s Top of the Box Office report.
