Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian
Terminators were no match for Ben Stiller at the box office this weekend.
Stiller's Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian raked in $70 million in its opening weekend, besting the Christian Bale-fronted Terminator Salvation, according to Variety. The franchise reboot — which opened a day earlier than Museum — earned $53.8 million over the holiday weekend and an additional $13.4 million on its Thursday opening.
Museum benefitted from being the summer's first comedy for all audiences, while Salvation may have had some of its thunder stolen by Star Trek, which earned the No. 3 spot with an additional $29.4 million in its third weekend. The film has earned just under $200 million to date.
Rounding out the Top 5 were Angels & Demons, which added $27.7 million to its take, and the Wayans Brothers comedy Dance Flick, which earned $13.1 million in its debut.
Overall, the Memorial Day weekend performed about as well as last year's, when Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull brought in $125 million.
