Brad Pitt, Inglourious Basterds

Francois Duhamel/ TWC 2009

Brad Pitt did not grow a mustache in vain.

Inglorious Basterds, Quentin Tarantino's own personal World War II starring Pitt and the actor's adorned lip, routed the weekend competition with an estimated $37.6 million gross.

The take marked the biggest opener of Tarantino's career, and one of the biggest of Pitt's.

Elsewhere, District 9 fell to second, but piled on another $18.9 million.   

Stay tuned for the complete box-office standings.
