His love is real. His box office is not.

 

While it did open to some strong reviews and audience disappointment, Spielberg's latest in nearly three years, A.I. Artifical Intelligence opened to some pretty disappointing numbers. I expected more, personally, considering the hype and ad campaign. It made 29.3 million, which is quite good, but compared to other openings this year it's still disappointing. Keep in mind word of mouth may help it survive... "Saving Private Ryan" opened with a little more and made well over 200 million three years ago. On another note, I saw the film and I did enjoy it, though the ending felt a bit out of place. Oh well.

The Fast And The Furious dropped to second and made 20 million while Dr. Dolittle 2 made 15.8. Tomb Raider made 10.2 over the weekend while John Singleton's latest, Baby Boy earned a nice 8.6 million.

Atlantis: The Lost Empire dropped to sixth with 8.2 million, Shrek held at seventh with 7.7 (kinda ironic) million and Pearl Harbor continued to bomb down with 4.7. crazy/beautiful tied with "Pearl Harbor" and also made 4.7. Teen films are dying all right, considering this one opened to strong reviews. And last but not least, Swordfish made 4.3 million.

Will "Scary Movie 2" top next weekend? What about "Cats & Dogs"? And how well will "A.I." do? Stay tuned...
