Welcome to our new feature “Battle at the Box Office”, where we see how things went down over the multiplex. This week’s big release, The Taking of Pelham 123, debuted at number 3 despite the formidable combo of Denzel Washington and John Travolta’s scary handlebar mustache and neck tats. The Hangover and UP retained their top spots at numbers one and two respectively. Rounding out the top 5 were Night at the Museum 2 and Land of the Lost. The only other new movie, Eddie Murphy’s Imagine That, debuted at 6 and keeps up Eddie Murphy’s impeccable recent record of bombs and general public apathy.
