At $5 mill a piece, the Four Brothers gathered up a total of $20 million for their opening on this low-key August weekend, while the N’awlins spooker The Skeleton Key put the hoodoo heebies into a decent amount of frightseekers.  The Dukes of Hazzard skidded with a nearly 60% drop, but it was enough to help keep Deuce Bigalow’s invasion of Europe from reaching higher than fifth place. 

Meanwhile, the bird documentary March of the Penguins featuring those feathered friends (that’s not fur, folks) continue to march apace, while the long-delayed WWII POW movie The Great Raid didn’t quite live up to its title in regards to the top 10.


Next weekend has a surprising variety for what was once considered the late-summer dumping ground: the CGI kidflick Valiant, the Carell-fronted comedy The 40 Year Old Virgin, Wes Craven’s air scare Red Eye, the racing melodrama Supercross, and the oddball musical Romance and Cigarettes.
