Weekend Box Office Recap

The guy in the cape finally got bumped from his well-seated place at the top of the chart. After four weeks at number one, The Dark Knight came in second this weekend, behind "Tropic Thunder" which, despite the feeble protesting, took in an estimated $26 million this weekend.
