Tim Burton's creepy, Wonka-backstory-infused remake of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory had a sweet* time at the box office this weekend, as it racked up $54 million on 3,770 screens to take the top spot. David Dobkin's The Wedding Crashers, the latest entry in the so-called Frat Pack pantheon, also opened big, with $32.2 million at about 800 fewer sites. Both films smashed records of sorts: Charlie is Johnny Depp's biggest opening ever, conquering a title earned two summers ago by Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (which, you have to remember, was the first blockbuster-bound film Depp had made in quite awhile). Meanwhile, Crashers did exceptionally well for an R-rated comedy, and even managed the biggest R-rated opening since last summer's Troy. Elsewhere in the top ten, Fantastic Four dropped 59% from its opening weekend, grossing $22.7 million (enough to push it over the $100 million mark) and landing in third place. The seven additional top ten brethren will be detailed after the jump.
