According to The Hollywood Reporter, New Line Cinema's Wedding Crashers took its vows in first place this weekend with an estimated $20.5 million.

The R-rated comedy, starring Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn and helmed by David Dobkin, was off a scant 20% on its third session and has garnered an estimated $116.1 million to date. In recent years only a handful of films have opened in a position other than the top spot before moving into first place in later weeks; Wedding Crashers joins a unique club that includes New Line's Elf, 20th Century Fox's There's Something About Mary and Buena Vista's The Santa Clause. But Wedding Crashers proved to be one of but a few bright spots this weekend at the boxoffice as the session overall fell well short of the comparable frame last year, when Buena Vista's The Village debuted with $50.7 million and the second-place film, Universal's The Bourne Supremacy, took in $24.2 million for its sophomore session.

Sony's Stealth joins DreamWorks' The Island -- another expensive summer actioner with a budget north of $100 million -- that crash-landed in its opening session. Directed by Rob Cohen and starring Jamie Foxx, Jessica Biel and Josh Lucas, Stealth was grounded in the fourth spot with a bleak estimate of $13.5 million.

British audiences went bonkers for Johnny Depp in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory over the weekend, propelling the pic to the top spot with $19.75 million from more than 2,300 screens in 15 countries, according to estimates.

Madagascar and Fantastic Four held second and third, respectively, while the international total for War of the Worlds marched past the $300 million mark.

Charlie's stunning bow in the U.K. -- $13.1 million from 531 sites -- swallowed up 60% of the top-five market share there. Excluding previews for all titles, this was better than the opening of The Incredibles by 21%, Fantastic Four by 143%, double the opening of Madagascar and on par with War of the Worlds and Toy Story 2.

In Mexico, Tim Burton's re-imagining of Roald Dahl's classic story had a delicious No. 1 opening of $1.43 million and 380,600 admissions from 473 prints, more than double the No. 4 opening of actioner Stealth, which made $700,000 on 350.
