Also forced to go down one notch is Universal Pictures' comedy "Knocked Up" which takes in a handful $19.6 million trailed by animated features "Surf's Up" and "Shrek the Third" to make up the big five of the chart, the former pulling $17.6 million while the latter adding another $15.3 million to raise its total gross to $281.46 million so far.
Newcomer "Hostel: Part II" comes up next on number six after managing to score $8.2 million in its opening weekend, a tally far exceeding the $4.9 million the seventh holder "Mr. Brooks" has collected. The rest positions lined up in order to number ten go to hit superhero flick "Spider-Man 3" with $4.3 million, romantic comedy "Waitress" with $1.6 million, and teen thriller "Disturbia" with $523,504.
