Happy New Year!

 

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a nice new year and is looking forward to 2002... and 2002 DVD releases too. I also hope everyone had a nice holiday (even though I wished that last week) and break if you had one. In anycase, January is somewhat a slow month for movies at the theater... Oscar contenders open wide from limited releases and some other movies... nothing too major, open up.

So how was the last weekend at the box office for the new year? Pretty damn good! The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring grossed 56.9 million over the course of December 28th to January 1st. In a somewhat but still strong second place was Ocean's Eleven with 26.1 million, followed by Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius with 22.2. Ali is off to a pretty decent start with about 20 million, while Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone made 16.9.

For sixth place, Vanilla Sky racked in another 16.3 while Kate & Leopold raked in 14.5 million (I found it to be a pretty charming romantic comedy). Rounding out the top ten was A Beautiful Mind with 12.6 (in limited release no less, and it was one of the year's best in my opinion), Monsters Inc. with 9.4 and The Majestic with 8.7.
