|The Final Destination
||Neither heavily marketed nor screened for critics, 4th movie in series figures to do the best. We credit the casting of Krista Allen.
||Critically acclaimed Basterds holds strong in 2nd week.
||Hello? It's August. Halloween isn't for another two months!
||$30M budget now looks like a good investment for this unique sci-fi flick.
|G.I Joe: The Rise of Cobra
||"Blockbuster" ekes out #5 spot with Julia and Julia nipping at its heels ($7.4M).
Bomb of the Week: Who doesn't love Ang Lee? His resume is frankly one of the best in Hollywood (The Wedding Banquet, The Ice Storm, Brokeback Mountain), but neither critics nor fans seemed to care much for Taking Woodstock, his low-key take on the famed music festival earned just $3.8M on a budget of $30M.
