Jeepers!

 

A pretty surprising box office this week, with Jeepers Creepers leading the way with a nice box office of 15.8 million, a record for a movie debuting on Labor Day weekend. For two and three, Rush Hour 2 and American Pie 2 were neck and neck with 11.8 and 11.7 each. The Others and Rat Race also held steady and strong with 10 million and 9.2 million.

The Princess Diaries also held on with 7.6 million, while O made 6.9 over the long weekend, a good amount considering the controversy as well as the number of theaters. Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Summer Catch and Captain Corelli's Mandolin each continued to slip with 6.4 million, 5 million and 4.1 million.

So the summer is over, with interesting movie making trends and another record breaking year. A complete summer wrap-up next week... it was quite a season. So as the kids go back to school and this summer ends, we look forward to a tight fall... stay tuned!
