Debuting in second place with $28.1 million domestically was the Warner Bros. comedy “Horrible Bosses,” featuring Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis as bumblers plotting against their nasty supervisors.
Opening at No. 3 with $21 million was Sony Pictures’ family tale “Zookeeper,” with Kevin James as an animal tender who gets romantic advice from the talking critters in his care.
