Weekend Box Office: 04/25/08 – 04/27/08

This is officially the last weekend before the summer blockbusters kick into gear so studios really needed to get some few lasts gasps in here if they don’t have any tentpoles lined up for the hotter months. Three new films did make their ways into the Top Ten with two of them even claiming the top spots. Not quite sure though how a surrogate mom beat out NPH. Full numbers inside.
