Lost in all the huzzahs over the slump-busting box office performance by 'Paranormal Activity 3' was the fact that 'Johnny English Reborn' opened with a barely a whimper. The Universal release -- already a worldwide hit thanks to star Rowan Atkinson's international drawing power; seriously -- earned just over $3.8 million from 1,552 screens last weekend, good bad enough for eighth place. That result placed 'English' on an ignominious and growing list: the worst wide-release opening weekends of the year. Ahead, the 17 unlucky losers.
