"My Big Fat Greek" Near-Take Over

 

Ouch! Many were certain My Big Fat Greek Wedding would FINALLY take the top spot on the charts after 21 weeks in release, but no, it had to settle for second with a whopping 10.4 million (and should cross 100 million any day now). In first? The crticially lambasted, teenage "Fatal Attraction" rip-off Swimfan was number one with a nice 11.3 million. This was a surprise of sorts, and should be quite profitable, seeing how the film was pretty cheap to make.

In third was the on-the-shelf DeNiro cop drama City By The Sea with 8.9 million, which was certainly nothing to scream about. Signs passed 200 million with a 7.9 million take over the weekend, while XXX took in 5.2 more million. Spy Kids 2: The Island Of Lost Dreams brought in three million more. Another summer sequel, Austin Powers In Goldmember, took in another 2.7 million.

Last week's new release, Feartdotcom, dropped with 2.4 million this weekend, while the Spider-Man/Men In Black II double feature took in a disappointing 2.1 million (probably because everyone's already seen them at this point). Finally, Blue Crush is about to wash out of the top ten, with 1.9 million.

Will "Greek" finally take the top spot next weekend? Stay tuned DVD fans, like always...
