Top Of The "World"

 

The well-hyped vampire/werewolf romantic epic, Underworld, opened in first place over the weekend with a pretty strong 21.7 million. While some expected a bit more for this September release, it has already made back its budget and plans are in full swing for some sequels. How it'll hold up in future weeks remains to be seen...

The wonderful family drama Secondhand Lions may turn out to be the season's sleeper hit, surprising many with a very respectable second place take of 12.1 million. In third was another new release, that being the musical comedy The Fighting Temptations with a decent 11.7 million. Last week's number one movie, Once Upon A Time In Mexico, dropped to fourth will 11 million.

The only other major release this weekend, Cold Creek Manor, turned out to be a dud with poor reviews and 8.1 million for the weekend. Matchstick Men made 7.5 million, Cabin Fever dropped a hefty 55 percent with 3.9 million and Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star made 3.7 million. Rounding out the top then were Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl with 3.4 million and the critically acclaimed Lost In Translation with 2.6 million.

Will any of these movies hold up in weeks to come, especially with a slew of high profile releases on their way? Probably a few will but you never know... stay tuned, DVD fans!
