Once Upon A Time at the box office

 

The fall movie season is starting to pick up pace, as the third in Robert Rodriguez's "El Mariachi" trilogy, Once Upon A Time In Mexico, opened at the top with 23.4 million. However, it may soon face some stiff competition. In second was another newcomer (a movie I really loved), Ridley Scott's Matchstick Men with 13 million. Critic reviews were mixed, but if word of mouth holds, this could prove to be a nice little sleeper.

Another newcomer, the indie horror flick Cabin Fever had an impressive debut of 8.6 million. Dropping to fifth, but not dropping to so much as far as gross was Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star with 5 million. Also holding on tight was Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl with 4.7 million. In sixth and seventh place were Freaky Friday and Jeepers Creepers II with 4 and 3 million, respectively.

Rounding the top ten out was the summer success Seabiscuit with 2.7 million, S.W.A.T. (also with 2.7 million) and finally, Kevin Costner's Western Open Range, also with 2.7 million.

With a slew of new releases next weekend, including the anticipated Underworld, will this week's releases and some of summer's favorites hold on to a spot on the top ten? Stay tuned, DVD fans!
