|Step Up 3D
||A somewhat disappointing opening for dance movie that uses 3-D beyond simple marketing gimmick.
||Jolie spy thriller sneaks up on blockbuster status ($100M).
|Dinner for Schmucks
||Large Week 2 drop-off as moviegoers instead saw The Other Guys for their laughs.
Bomb of the Week: The internet porn comedy-drama Middle Men, starring AT&T pitchman Luke Wilson, opened in 250 theaters but earned just $305K, for a per-screen average less than Shrek Forever After, now in its 12th week.
