Tropic Thunder Ushers in a Knight Fall

It was bound to happen, The Dark Knight did not win this weekend, though it did surpass Star Wars: A New Hope to become the second biggest movie ever. This weekend went to Tropic Thunder which edged out both Batman and Star Wars. Pretty good for a film featuring the controversial Simple Jack.

Speaking of Star Wars, its nice to see that GL could only milk an extra $15.5 million by releasing his made for cable TV show in theaters.

In other news, Wall-E whizzed past Kung Fu Panda for the Summer animated crown. Other than that, the charts have stayed the same. Also summer is coming to a close. Look out for the results of the Chips vs Dips showdown which puts my predictions against those of Entertainment Weekly. I think I may be the winner! Stay Tuned.
