Here Comes The Bride

 

It was a good weekend for revenge films at the box office, as Quentin Tarantino's eagerly-awaited Kill Bill Volume 2 scored to the top of the charts with 25.1 million over the weekend (a few million more than what the first volume opened too). In second place was yet another comic adaptation, The Punisher, bringing in a respectable 13.8 million. Staying in third was Johnson Family Vacation, a film that seems poised for sleeper status as it took in 5.9 over the weekend. The news wasn't as good for another comic book film, Hellboy, which has been sliding down the charts fast and brought in another 5.6 million over the weekend.

In fifth and sixth were two family-oriented films: Home On The Range with 5.5 million and the sequel Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed with 5.2 million. Walking Tall grossed another 4.6 million over the weekend while Ella Enchanted brought in 4.2 million more.

The news was grim for The Alamo as it's now officially a bomb - the 100 million dollar epic only took in 4.1 over the weekend and has brought in about 16 million so far. And finally, The Passion Of The Christ appears to be on its way out. With 360 million in the bank, the religious film took a major stumble when compared to last weekend: from first to tenth.

As far as some DVD news, Columbia-Tristar seems to break the theatrical-to-DVD barrier yet again. The Johnny Depp thriller from last month, Secret Window, is hitting shelves June 29th. Expect Dolby Digital 5.1 in English and French, an anamorphic widescreen transfer, audio commentary from Writer/Director David Koepp, a three-part documentary, four deleted scenes and trailers. All this, for 28.95.
