Jackie Robinson Biopic "42" Smashes Box Office Opening Weekend

Warner Bros.(HOLLYWOOD, Calif.) -- The Jackie Robinson biopic 42 smashed expectations, opening to an estimated $27.3 million.

It's the best opening ever for a baseball movie, and it earned a rare A+ cinemascore from audiences.

Far behind in second, Scary Movie 5 opened to a disappointing 15.2 million, according to studio estimates. It's the worst opening for the franchise—Scary Movie 4 earned $40 million opening weekend in 2006.

The Croods finished third for the weekend.

Report: Lindsay Lohan Furious over Unapproved "Scary Movie 5" Joke

ABC News(LOS ANGELES) -- Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen appear in a scene together in Scary Movie 5, and while they both have had their share of personal problems that producers could have poked fun at, TMZ.com reports that the majority of the jokes come at Lohan's expense.

The working script for the movie starts with Lohan and Sheen in bed making a sex tape.  As they get started, Lohan tells Sheen, "Okay but let's do this quick, I got a court hearing in the morning.  It's a driving mishap thing."

After some more jokes about Lohan’s driving, Sheen starts finding devices on Lohan's body such as her sobriety monitor, ankle bracelet monitor, and even a dog shock collar.

Once the scary part of the scene starts, Sheen gets tossed across the room and Lohan screams, but viewers were supposed to learn it's only because she's watching her movie Herbie: Fully Loaded.

However, producers pulled a fast one on Lohan, according to TMZ.   For the trailer, they reportedly swapped out the Herbie clip with a real news clip of Lohan’s probation being revoked. 

Lohan reportedly is furious that the producers inserted an extra dig at her expense, because she did not clear the change.

Sources tell TMZ that Lohan was to have final say on which jokes were used, and she is prepared to take legal action over the alleged breach of contract.  The actress thinks the unapproved joke was payback from producers because they blame her for holding up the movie shoot and reportedly destroying her trailer.

Report: Charlie Sheen Donated All of His "Scary Movie 5" Dough

Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- While a recent report said Charlie Sheen took pity on his Scary Movie 5 cameo co-star Lindsay Lohan and sent her a hundred grand to cut in half her $200,000 debt to Uncle Sam, TMZ reports Sheen helped out other charity cases as well with his salary for the spoof.

The gossip site says the former Warlock donated the remainder of his $250,000 paycheck to three charities chosen by the movie's director and producers.

Earlier this year, Sheen announced he'd given one of his profit points for his new show Anger Management to the USO's Operation Enduring Care Campaign for wounded veterans; the donation was worth at least a million bucks, but that amount will grow because Anger Management was subsequently picked up by FX for 90 additional episodes.

Report: Lindsay Lohan's "Scary Movie" Behavior Scary for Producers

Jonathan Leibson/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- If reports from sources on set are to believed, Lindsay Lohan has a lot of trouble laughing at herself. The actress, cast along with Charlie Sheen to poke some fun at their mega-hyped foibles in the upcoming comedy Scary Movie 5, "disappeared, blew off rehearsals, missed her flight to the set and even bizarrely claimed she had walking pneumonia," to get out of work, according to the New York Post.

"The scene," one source said, "went pretty hard at Lindsay," and included a kiss with Sheen that had LiLo, "freaking out ... for weeks." Another source said the actress, "... has been locked up in her room at the Bowery Hotel. She's been in a tailspin. Even Charlie Sheen is worried she might not be able to do the scene."

Lohan's camp, not surprisingly, is circling the wagons. A spokesperson told The Post, "These stories are untrue, and [Lindsay] is willingly fulfilling all of her obligations."
