Box Office: 'The Hangover Part II' and 'Kung Fu Panda 2' make for biggest Memorial Day ever

hangover-ii-opening.jpgSo much for staying outside this weekend! Thanks to "The Hangover Part II" and "Kung Fu Panda 2," millions of people opted for the cool inside of a movie theater instead of the traditional family barbecue.

In its first weekend, "Hangover Part II" scored a magnificent $137.4 million box office take over its first four days making for a very nice morning after for Warner Bros. The film, which follows the same structure as its predecessor, picked up momentum over the holiday weekend.

Meanwhile "Kung Fu Panda 2" was the one to watch for families. In its opening weekend, the 3-D film scored $47.8 million from Friday through Sunday, which -- while impressive -- didn't quite meet the original film's $60.2 million opening weekend, even with inflated costs for 3-D tickets.
