Coming in at three was Adam Sandler’s new comedy “You Don’t Mess with the Zohan,” the story of an Israeli assassin fleeing to New York to become a hairdresser.
The third film of the Mummy franchise, “The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon,” was down two places at four with “Wild Child,” featuring a spoilt Malibu brat at an English boarding school, coming in at five.
“Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” an animated version acting as a pilot for an upcoming Cartoon Network series, came in at six while animated robot “Wall-E” was down three places at seven.
