The Rich And The Furious

 

A surprisingly good weekend at the box office over the weekend, where The Fast And The Furious opened to critical pans and a whopping forty million dollars for first place. This is certainly good news to Universal. Personally, this is a movie I think that could have bombed (it was delayed once) or taken off. It was the latter obviously. No surprise... a lot of guys love hot chick and fast cars.

What I thought would be in first was second, that being Dr. Dolittle 2. The film actually garnered pretty decent reviews, but fell short of the original's opening (that of course was one of the biggest hits of 1998). The film had a strong opening with twenty-five million, and there will be some repeat business there.

In third was Lara Croft: Tomb Raider which went down over the week, but made 19.7 over the weekend. It'll easily pass the 100 million mark within the next week or two. In fourth was Atlantis: The Lost Empire with 12.5 million and in fifth was Shrek, still going strong with 10.4.

Swordfish was in sixth with 7.7 while Pearl Harbor continues to sink at seven with 6.8 million. Moulin Rouge was in eight with 3.8 million, Evolution in ninth with 3.2 and The Animal with 2.9.

Next week... the secret, highly hyped Spielberg film "A.I." and then after that July 4th box office madness. Look for plenty of new reviews this week, so stay tuned.
