To no one's surprise, The So-Called Twilight Saga: Eclipse demolished all comers over the long holiday weekend, raking in a huge $82.5M ($175.2M) to easily top the over-performing (and terrible) The Last Airbender ($53.1M | $70.5M). The amazing Toy Story 3 continued to do well, adding $42.2M ($301M). The unfunny Grown Ups ($26.5M | $85M) and the fun Knight & Day ($14M | $49.3M) rounded out the top 5.

The second half of the chart was led by the contemptible The Kung Fu Kid ($11.5M | $155M). After that it was the decent A-Team ($4.2M | $70.3M), the funny Get Him to the Greek ($1.6M | $57.9M), the sleepy Shrek 4-ever After ($1.2M | $232.6M) and the weird and wonderful Cyrus ($1M | $1.7M). The limited release crowd took the week off, realizing that no one wants to see a specialty film over the July 4th holiday.
