Pineapple Express couldn’t maintain its high from Wednesday. On Thursday, it fell a disturbing 50% for a $6 million daily gross. In two days, the stoner comedy has chugged $18.1 million worth of box office. This lower than expected Thursday leaves the door open for a possible repeat performance at the top this weekend from The Dark Knight. The Bat added another $4.7 million on Thursday, which brings the running tally up to $415.5 million. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest will likely fall one place on the all time chart on Friday when the Caped Crusader flies past it.
