Judd Apatow-produced comedy "Superbad" knocked off "Rush Hour 3" to become the top holder of weekend domestic box office ended August 19, 2007.
The misadventures of two high school buddies trying to score booze in "Superbad" turned out to fulfill moviegoers' need for some laughs as they spent their weekend in theaters.
Drawing in a large cash of $33.1 million in ticket sales, the teen comedy wonderfully soared right to the top spot of weekend North American box office running August 17-19, 2007, preventing last-week's champ "Rush Hour 3" to prolong its reign on the chart.
Pushed to the second place, the buddy cop movie fared almost $12 million lesser at $21.4 million yet made its way to outdistance its tough competitor "The Bourne Ultimatum" for the spy flick gained a slightly lower tally of $19.9 million. Popping up behind to round out the big five were animated feature "The Simpsons Movie" and newcomer "The Invasion", which took in $6.83 million and $5.95 million respectively.
On the sixth rank, there sit Matthew Vaughn's fantasy tale "Stardust" for its fair income of $5.65 million followed by musical picture "Hairspray" that managed to add another $4.5 million to raise its total gross to $100.8 million so far. Next positions up to number ten went to "Underdog" with $3.85 million, "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" with $3.66 million, and "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry" with $3.6 million.
