'Hangover' tops Friday box office with $10.4 million

After a surprise first-place finish last weekend, Vegas comedy The Hangover is in the lead again with a commanding $10.4 million Friday gross. That was plenty to trump the week’s biggest new release, The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3, which came in third with just $8.3 million. The John Travolta-Denzel Washington thriller lost the second-place spot to Disney/Pixar’s Up, still flying high in its third weekend. But the weekend’s real loser looks to be Eddie Murphy’s Imagine That, which limped into sixth place with a weak $1.8 million from more than 3,000 screens. Be sure to check back tomorrow for the final weekend grosses.
