It was bound to happen. With Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest entering its fourth weekend it only took Miami Vice to knock it out of the top spot.

Miami Vice Takes Box Office

According to Variety, Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest has ceded the number one spot at the box office this weekend to Miami Vice.

Though it slipped to No. 2 after three weeks of grabbing the most box office gold, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest declined a relatively modest 42% on its fourth frame. The second installment pulled in another $20.5 million and brought its total take to an amazing $358.4 million, a domestic record for Disney

Miami Vice found its audience among buffs of the genre and Michael Mann fans looking for a style similar to Collateral. Speaking of the Tom Cruise thriller, Miami Vice opened right on line with the film.

Given the new pic's sizable budget, though, Universal has to hope Vice has legs as strong as Collateral, which went on to bring in $100 million domestically.

On a final note, The Ant Bully struggled during its opening weekend thanks to the first summer to ever be crowded with CG animations. With Monster House just opened and Cars still in theatres, the 'inexpensive' animation was only able to bring in $8.1 million. Fortunately for Warner Bros, strong word of mouth could help the film break the $30 million mark by the end of its theatrical run.

Stay tuned for updates.
