Superbad even better

Aug 21, 2007 by Ian Evans

When the initial weekend estimates were released to the press, it was trumpeted that the comedy Superbad had taken the number one spot with around $31 million. Waiting for the actual figures to be released today shows that Sony underestimated by a couple o’ big ones as the film actually opened with $33 million. Last week’s numero uno, Rush Hour 3, was second with $21.3 million, while The Bourne Ultimatum finished its third weekend with $19.8 million.

The Simpsons Movie continued earning “D’Oh” with a fourth place $6.8 million showing, while Nicole Kidman’s The Invasion rounded out the top five with a $5.9 million opening.
