Second Place – The Jay Roach comedy ‘Dinner For Schmucks‘ held strong in second place yesterday with $2.7 million, nearing its first full week in theaters with over $36 million at the box office. The American remake of French film ‘Le Diner de Cons‘ stars Steve Carell and Paul Rudd, along with Zach Galifianakis and Jemaine Clement.
Third Place – ‘Despicable Me‘ made waves yesterday, nabbing another $2.3 million at the box office to cross the vaunted $200 million mark for its cumulative gross.
