Just like the Wimbledon match between Federer and Roddick, we needed a little extra time to figure out the box office winner this weekend.
Transformers: The Revenge of the Fallen squeaked out a victory over the 3D family flick Ice Age. But this weekend is more about the comedy The Hangover. It passed $200 million and has now out-performed what looked like sure blockbuster smash hits in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian and Terminator Salvation.
Now the question becomes ... is Bruno a big enough boy to knock off the robots in disguise?
