Steve Carell‘s "The 40 Year-Old Virgin" unzipped approximately $20.6 million from over 2,800 theaters during its debut weekend, making it the second R-rated comedy (after "Wedding Crashers") to make a big splash this summer.
Holding on in third place was last weekend’s leader, "Four Brothers," which added an estimated $13 million to its $43.6 million total. Fourth place was awarded to the still-popular "Wedding Crashers," which jammed another $8.2 million into its overstuffed pockets ($178 million all told). Rounding out the top 5 was last weekend’s "The Skeleton Key," which tallied $7.2 million for a total just over $30 million.
