'Inglourious Basterds' Prove Nazi Killin' Profitable

August 24, 2009


The weekend's box office top five as determined by man:

1. Inglourious Basterds - $37.6 million, Quentin Tarentino's biggest opening weekend and his first film to feature Mike Myers in any capacity. That can't be a coincidence.

2. District 9 - $18.9 million. Between Nazis and aliens, this weekend's top moneymakers were chock-full of groups I will always consider enemy.

3. G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra - $12.5 million. You may think I forgot to include Cobra in the above list of groups I will always consider enemy, but that's not the case. Remember when Roadblock and Cobra Commander were helping each other out in the 1987 animated G.I. Joe movie? Cobra Commander seemed like a decent enough guy for a while there.

4. The Time Traveler's Wife - $10 million in ticket sales, with another reported $4 million for selling photos of the Time Traveler's Newborn Baby to Us Weekly.

5. Julie & Julia - $9 million, holding Robert Rodriguez's Shorts down at 6th and ensuring Kazaam remains the superior wish-granting kids' film.
