Aug 16, 2005 by Ian Evans

The revenge tale Four Brothers, which stars Mark Wahlberg and OutKast’s Andre Benjamin, took the top spot this weekend opening with $21.1 million. Kate Hudson and The Skeleton Key opened to $16 million while the drooling filmgoers added another $13 million to The Dukes of Hazzard in its second weekend.

Vince Vaughan and Owen Wilson continued to amuse as The Wedding Crashers brought in another $11.8 million. Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo rounded out the top five with $9.6 million.

As Miramax clears its decks for the Weinstein brothers departure, they’re releasing old projects. The Great Raid, which has been sitting on the shelf for about three years, opened in tenth with only $3.3 million.
