Willy whomps box office competition

“Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and “Wedding Crashers” held on in their second weeks, topping a quartet of new titles, including a disappointing debut for “The Island.” Warner Bros. reported “Charlie” grossed $28.3 million, which was off 50% from its opening, to bring its total to $114.1 million. Meanwhile, New Line’s “Crashers” held on extremely well, off just 23% to $26.2 million. The comedy has now grossed $80.9 million. DreamWorks’ “The Island” posted a disappointing $12.1 million from 3,122 playdates. That put the movie at No. 4 and is the lowest debut on helmer Michael Bay’s resume — lower even than the $15.5 million opening posted by “Bad Boys in 1995. The estimate on “Island” was a hair lower than the third week of 20th Century Fox’s “Fantastic Four,” which brought in $12.3 million. Paramount’s remake of “Bad News Bears” opened at No. 5 with $11.2 million, playing at 3,183 theaters. Paramount Classics’ “Hustle & Flow” did well in its first week. Released with a 1,013-theater run, the movie grossed $8.1 million to land in seventh place on the box office chart.
