Adam Sandler accidentally broke his ankle over the weekend, the Associated Press reports. The comic actor broke his ankle while shooting hoops, but is recovering well. Adam’s broken ankle will not impact filming on his new flick Bedtime Stories, which is currently in production for a Summer 2008 release.
Adam Sandler took charge of the remote control at the weekend box office. His comic fantasy “Click,” about a man whose new universal remote takes control of his life and leaves it in chaos, debuted as the No. 1 movie with $40 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.
Sony’s “Click” bumped off the Disney-Pixar animated comedy “Cars,” which slipped to second place with $22.5 million, raising its domestic total to $155.9 million.
The weekend’s other new wide release — Focus Features’ “Waist Deep,” starring Tyrese Gibson as an ex-con forced into a robbery spree to collect ransom for his kidnapped son — opened strongly with $9.5 million to finish at No. 4.
I had one of these remote controls once, except it was for women. It got me into big trouble. It definetly didn’t make me 40m dollars on its opening weekend.
