Seems as though all that tabloid racket about Brad and Angelie adversely affected the performance of their on-screen pairing approximately not at all.  Having such appealing actors in one movie obviously didn’t hurt, and the married assassins of Mr. and Mrs. Smith notched $51 million worth of wallet kills in their opening week. 

Certainly much better than the three-dimensional thrills of Robert Rodriguez’ kidflick The Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl, which fell in line behind Stiller, Sandler and Skywalker, but since probably made it for about 70 bucks over a couple of spare weekends, it’s probably already profitable.  The "urbanized" remake of The Honeymooners is driving the short bus, while the raw horror flick High Tension landed further out in 12th with $1.8 million, which further illustrates the mystifying nature of the box office (especially when something like Open Water brings in $30 million).  But for this year’s relative success, look no further than Crash, which cost around $7 million (even with a high-profile cast) and has made more than six times that figure.

Next week delivers the return (or the introduction, as it were) of the Dark Knight in Batman Begins, with only Hilary Duff willing to face Bale with The Perfect Man.
