Penguins Beats Bond To The Top Of The Us Box Office
The animated penguins of HAPPY FEET have stunned America by beating the new James Bond to the top of the weekend box office. Both films topped $40 million (GBP22.2 million) in their opening weekends but Happy Feet edged ahead with an estimated three-day $42.3 million (GBP23.5 million) take. Daniel Craig's 007 debut in Casino Royale debuted with a stunning $40.6 million (GBP22.5 million). The placings of the two films could change when the official box office list is released today (20NOV06). The films ended the two-week box office-topping reign of Sacha Baron Cohen's comic creation BORAT, who fell to number three.
