Box Office Thoughts for the Weekend of August 29, 2008

Tropic Thunder has topped the box office for the third week in a role with an estimated gross of $11.5M. Babylon A.D. came in second place with an estimated gross of $9.7M.

With the other new releases, Traitor opened in fifth with $7.9M and Disaster Movie was in seventh with $6.2M.

The Dark Knight finally made it over the $500M last weekend. It is now second only to Titanic for the largest domestic gross. However, if you put inflation into consideration, far less had to see The Dark Knight.

And that’s the box office thoughts for this week.
