‘Guess Who’ tops box office with $21 million

Sony’s Bernie Mac-Ashton Kutcher comedy “Guess Who” won the weekend with a stronger-than-expected $21 million opening. The movie, a loose adaptation of 1967’s “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner,” debuted at 3,147 locations. In the second spot was Warner Bros.’ “Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous” with $17.6 million since it opened at 3,233 theaters on Thursday. For the three-day span, the Sandra Bullock sequel grossed $14.5 million. While “Congeniality 2” was running well above the original’s $10 million bow in 2000, industry estimates leading into the Easter weekend had the positions reversed for the two pics. DreamWorks’ “The Ring Two” fell 61% in its second week to $13.8 million, which was good for No. 3 and a total gross of $58 million. Just behind it in the fourth spot was 20th Century Fox’s CGI toon “Robots,” which grossed $13 million in its third weekend, boosting its total to $87.4 million. And rounding out the top five was Disney’s “The Pacifier” with $8.5 million and a total gross of $86.3 million.
