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
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.
