Night at the Museum crumbles competition at U.S. box office
Robin Williams, Ricky Gervais and Ben Stiller are laughing their way to the top of the U.S. box office - their new film Night At The Museum: Battle Of The Smithsonian has toppled the competition in its opening weekend (22-24May09).
The win was a shock for movie reviewers, who insisted Terminator Salvation - the fourth movie in the sci-fi franchise - was poised to take the top spot after scooping more than £8.7 million on its first day of release. But the film came in at second with £28.7 million in earnings.
The new Star Trek movie followed at third, with nearly £14.7 million in earnings and now boasting a three-week total of £122.4 million.
