A CUT ABOVE

Everyone’s favorite low-budget juggernaut was a Big Fat bridesmaid again last weekend, while Ice Cube’s Barbershop clipped all comers with $20.6 million. Don’t feel too bad, though: The little bridal train that could seems likely to pass The Blair Witch Project’s $141 million to become the highest grossing indie ever. Meanwhile, One Hour Photo is developing rather nicely: It added both 1,039 theaters and $8 million. Finally, Stealing Harvard had its application summarily rejected, its less-than-Ivy-League $6 million opening outscored by last week’s teen winner, Swimfan. Tom Green, thy clock is ticking.
