Memorial Day - remember our fallen numbers.
Stupid intro aside, the numbers are anything but fallen. The holiday weekend was good to Warner Brothers, Paramount/Dreamworks and Buena Vista. At #1 was The Hangover Part II, which some are calling Bridesmaids for men! Anyway, it made $86 million. Then at #2 another sequel, Kung Fu Panda II. The 3D CGI extravaganza kicked up $48 million.
That Pirates of the Caribbean movie brought in $40 million for it's 2nd weekend, which tallies up to $153 million. Way to generate easy money boys!
