"Save The Last" for first

A somewhat surprising weekend at the box office, where for the three day Martin Luther King Jr. holiday the bashed teen flick Save The Last Dance debuted in first place with an as astounding, record-making 27.5 million. That booted Cast Away to second place a very good 19.8 million, and in third was Traffic, raking in 13.4 million. Double Take, also panned by critics, made 11.7 followed by What Women Want with 11.6. Thirteen Days opened in wide release with 11.3 million ("Lord Of The Rings" trailer, anyone?) followed by Finding Forrester which also opened wide this past weekend with 11.1 million. Round all of it out is Miss Congeniality with 10.6, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (opened in more theaters) with 10.3 and finally The Emperor's New Groove with 7.8. MGM's computer thriller Antitrust opened in 12th with a mere 5.5 million (ouch!). Hannibal opens in a few weeks though, so expect their profits to go up a bit.

As far as reviews, I posted a review of Survivor, so check that out if you love the show. Check out some of David's reviews as well for 12 Monkeys and Edward Scissorhands. That's pretty much it. Enjoy!
