Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's fifth international outing The Pink Panther 2 has also missed the mark. The film opened to negative reviews and the opening weekend numbers in America are disappointing... Dev D, released on limited screens in America, has failed as well... Luck By Chance remains on the lower side in U.K. and U.S.A. Flop... Both Raaz - The Mystery Continues and VICTORY are flops in U.K... Chandni Chowk To China is a shocker. The film has failed to cross the $ 1 million mark in U.S. and will barely reach the half-a-million mark [£] in U.K... Slumdog Millionaire continues to have a dream run in U.S. [$ 77 million], U.K. [£ 16.8 million] and Australia [Aus. $ 10 million]. Fabulous!

Weekend: February 6 - 8, 2009.
