The raunchy new comedy “The Hangover” starring Bradley Cooper opened stronger than expected and finished a very close 2nd place to Disney Pixar’s “Up” last weekend.
Will Ferell‘s “Land of the Lost” had trouble finding audiences with a disappointing third place debut.
The following table has figures provided by studios to Hollywood.com Box-Office. The amounts are based on actual ticket sales for June 5, June 6, and estimates for yesterday.
