Tale of the Box Office Sales

Tropic Thunder had an opening weekend of $26 million in box office sales. Compare that to Stiller's Night at the Museum (not one of his better films) which opened higher with $31M or Downey's Ironman which opened earlier this summer with $99M in sales. The previous summer comedy released, Step Brothers, also earned higher sales with $30M its opening weekend. Heck even Mummy 3 (there was a Mummy 2???) earned $42.4M. Not as successful as one would expect with all the big name stars in TT and its huge $100M plus filming budget.

I'm just saying.

Great news!

Mummy 2 was a pretty fun movie. You should rent it. Actually, I think you can get Mummy, Mummy 2, and the Scorpion King together on DVD at Wal-Mart for $9.99.
