U.S. Box Office Report: June 3rd, 2007

Johnny Depp and those scurvy pirates prove too tough to take down, scoring another $43.2 million over the weekend. Meanwhile, Judd Apatow’s romantic comedy “Knocked Up” surprised just about everyone by taking second place with a $29.3 million take, nearly its production budget, practically guaranteeing that the film will be a big hit, box office receipts return-wise. The romcom, directed by “The 40-year Old Virgin’s” Apatow, stars two little known actors in Katherine Heigl (known mostly for TV’s “Grey’s Anatomy”) and Seth Rogan, who I haven’t even heard of period until now. “Shrek the Third” took the third spot with $26.7 million, while Kevin Costner’s debut as a serial killer in “Mr. Brooks” opened with $10 million, which was not entirely unexpected.
