Kung Fu Panda came out swingin' with an impressive non-Shrek opening of $60 million for Dreamworks. Panda may be their next film to get 4 sequels too many, but I hear that this one at least is pretty good.
Also opening was Zohan, the latest Adam Sandler fubar comedy. I still enjoy Billy Madison, The Wedding Singer, and even Mr Deeds, but this one looks more like Little Nicky than something good. Zohan still captured $40 million, hopefully better than The Love Guru will do later this month.
Pretty much everything else stayed on course. Indy did fine, Iron Man's still coasting, Narnia still sputtering, and Sex and the City will somehow pass $100 million tomorrow.
Next week, The Incredible Hulk opens. It could be huge or disappointing, I really have no idea to expect. Also, M Night's The Happening looks to be his latest bomb in spite of Mark Mark.
