‘DAYS’ OF HEAVEN

Love might not officially be in the air yet, but Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey got plenty of it last weekend — enough to turn their romantic comedy into a career-best bow for both. Owen Wilson and Jackie Chan also made a bang, though their Shanghai Knights failed to outgross Shanghai Noon’s debut by a hair. And while Chicago danced back up to No. 3 and The Quiet American scored a $12,235 per-site average, not all was hunky-dory at the Miramax corral: The Italian-language release of Roberto Benigni’s Pinocchio earned a pitiful $6,092.
