The box-office began to settle into its usual end-of-summer blahs last weekend, with Tropic Thunder , the final blockbuster release of the season, leading the pack with just $25.8 million. Warner Bros.' previously unstoppable The Dark Knight couldn't even crack $20 million, winding up with $16.4 million in its fifth week (and also winding up on the No. 2 spot on the all-time list, behind Titanic ). An animated Star Wars variation, Star Wars The Clone Wars debuted with $14.6 million. Another newcomer, the horror flick Mirrors , which was not screened for critics, wound up with $11.2 million. Dropping from second to fifth place was Pineapple Express , which settled for $9.8 million. Overall, the top 12 films grossed $111.7 million, down 2 percent from last year's $114 million.
