The Hangover 2 Shatters Record at the Box Office

This Memorial Day weekend, the highly anticipated sequel to The Hangover managed to become the biggest debut for a comedy, beating out Bruce Almighty's $85.7 million over the same weekend back in 2003. Yes, The Hangover 2 made more than $85.7 million, more like $86.5 million.

As for Kung Fu Panda 2, it did less than expected (especially compared to the first Kung Fu Panda's $60 million opening), raking in about $48 million, but I expect it to have strong legs as the Summer rolls on because of positive word of mouth.
