US Box Office

While trying to save the world from giant robots on a blue screen, Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow opened with $16.2 million. While saving on furniture and set design (all of the film was shot on a soundstage with blue screens), the special effects still pushed the budget to $70 million. A mark that might not reached if the movie loses audience at a normal pace (a weekly 40-50% decline).
Second was comedian Bernie Mac starrer Mr. 3000 with $9.2 million. Not so resident after all, is a drop to number 3 for Resident Evil: Apocalypse, with $9 million.
Wimbledon is clearly wasted on the Americans, as it takes in $7.8 million, good for only a fourth place. Cellular drops to number 5 with $6.9 million.
