Looks like Hollywood has another summer box office hit on their hands with Pixar’s new film Wall-E. The lovable little robot stormed the box office this weekend, taking in $62.5 million in ticket sales. Falling into a surprisingly close second with just over $51 million was Angelina Jolie’s action-packed thriller Wanted, also starring James McAvoy and veteran Morgan Freeman.
Steve Carell’s Get Smart moved down to the number three spot, earning $20 million in its second week. Kung Fu Panda dropped to the fourth spot, taking in $11.7 million, while Edward Norton’s The Incredible Hulk earned a mere $9.2 million. Most disappointing, however, was Mike Myers’ comedy The Love Guru, which fell all the way down to the number six spot, taking in only $5.4 million.
Will Angelina Jolie and a heart-warming robot sustain their spots come July 4th weekend? Or can Will Smith’s superhero flick Hancock fly high? Find out on next Monday’s Top of the Box Office report.
