Another Slice Of Pie

 

Universal is doing really good this summer, and as expected, American Pie 2 took the top spot with a large serving of 45.1 million dollars. In second was Rush Hour 2 which dropped to second and half of its audience, but still made a large 33.1 million gross. In third was The Princess Diaries with 14.2 million, while newcomer The Others made a strong 14 million (I think more people saw Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise avoiding each other at the premiere). In fifth was Planet Of The Apes, still holding on, with 13.3 million.

Sixth place saw Jurassic Park III with 7.5 million, and in seventh was Osmosis Jones with 5.2 million, that being a big disappointment and surely one of this summer's bombs (and poor reviews didn't help either). Finally, American's Sweethearts, Legally Blonde and Original Sin round off this week's list each with 4.4, 3.7 and 3 million, respectively. Next week, a few more films open, including the comedy Rat Race (which I saw, it's hiarlious. Don't miss it and may good word of mouth give it a strong box office hopefully!).

As far as site news goes, there's some noteworthy reviews to check out. I covered last Spring's flop Josie and the Pussycats, while Ren takes a look at Extreme Limits (never heard of it? You're not the only one). And last but not least, Anthony takes a GIANT look at the musical Paint Your Wagon, be sure to check that one out!
