With all the hype surrounding the movie, everybody knew there was little chance it would be matched. But, with a $15.2M opening, Snakes On A Plane (2006) managed a good first weekend. The reviews have been surprisingly good and now, it will be a matter of whether the word of mouth translates into a $50-75M mid-level hit, or a $30M flop.
Talladega Nights: The Ballad Of Ricky Bobby (2006) passed the $100M over the week and now sits at $114.3M. It's on its way to become the highest grossing non-animated comedy of the year. World Trade Center (2006) is also doing relatively well and on its way to match its production budget. With an additional $10.9M this weekend, the film now sits at $45.1M.
Finally, yes, Pirates Of The Caribbean 2, Dead Man's Chest (2006) did cross the $400M mark this weekend, but it did so 2 days later than Shrek 2 (2004) did, so that record still stands. Internationally, the movie is doing very well too and is approaching the $1B mark.
