Rush Hour 3 Speeds to the Box Office's Top Slot

Rush Hour 3 Speeds to the Box Office's Top Slot

New Line Cinema's buddy cop comedy "Rush Hour 3" takes direct move to the first place of the weekend North American box office ended August 12, 2007.

Summer appears to still belong to sequel title indeed as "Rush Hour 3" gloriously follows the trail of "The Bourne Ultimatum" to go straight to the top in its debut on weekend domestic box office yet ironically replaces the spy movie as the No. 1 movie on the chart running August 10-12, 2007.

Scores big at $49.1 million, the buddy cop comedy triumphantly outdistances the $32.9 million the last week's champ has garnered this time, forcing it to go one spot down to the second position, right above "The Simpsons Movie" which manages to add another $11.3 million in its third-place feedbag to raise a total gross of $152.4 million.

Though so, "Rush Hour 3" turns out to fare lower than what its predecessor "Rush Hour 2" achieved for the second installment of the series successfully took in $67.4 million when it opened on August 3, 2001. Still, the Brett-Ratner is the fourth best August opening on record and the sixth "threequel" of the summer to open as a weekend's top film.

Meanwhile, other new release, "Stardust", finishes at number four after making its way to collect $9.17 million with musical flick "Hairspray" trailing behind for a tally of $6.4 million to make up the big five of the chart.

The sixth rank goes to super-powered beagle movie "Underdog" which still does fairly well in the competition by putting $6.35 million into its pocket followed by "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry" and "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" at respective income of $5.88 million and $5.43 million. Rounding out the top ten are romantic comedy "No Reservations" with $3.86 million and another newcomer "Daddy Day Camp" with $3.4 million.
