Hazzard Boys "Duke" Out an Easy Win at the Weekend Box Office

by | August 8, 2005 | Comments

WB’s big-screen adaptation of "The Dukes of Hazzard" had no problem tackling the #1 spot at the weekend box office, pulling in nearly $30.6 million from over 3,700 theaters. Granted, it was the only movie opening in wide release, but WB has to be pleased with the initial three-day haul.

Holding firm in second place is New Line’s surprise smash "Wedding Crashers," which added another $16.5 million to its $144m total. Tim Burton‘s "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" dropped down to thrd place with a haul of $10.5m ($169m total), while fourth and fifth place went to Disney’s "Sky High" ($9m weekend; $32m total) and the rom-com "Must Love Dogs" ($7.4m, $26m total).

Cracking into the top ten in documentary style is the nature film "March of the Penguins," which landed in the number six spot after adding an additional 1,500 theaters to the release pattern. The penguins marched to a tune of $7.1 million, and their total tally to date is $26.4 million!

There’s no shortage of wide release titles come next Friday; moviegoers can choose between the raunchy stylings of "Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo," John Singleton’s action drama "Four Brothers," the cajun thriller "The Skeleton Key," or the wartime drama "The Great Raid."

As always, feel free to stop by the Rotten Tomatoes Box Office Page for a closer looks at the late-summer movie numbers.
