In For The "Kill"

 

Opening to some strong reviews, the first half of Quentin Tarantino's long awaited homage to Asian action flicks, Kill Bill: Vol. 1 scored an impressive 22 million dollars in its opening weekend. Perhaps Miramax's strategy to divide the film up was a good idea, and just may prove to be profitable for the studio.

Last week's number one movie, The School Of Rock, still held on very strong and didn't drop too much as it pulled in another 15.4 million. Two other new releases made the top five: Good Boy!, a low-budget family film about dogs from space, made 13.1 million. But the news wasn't good for the Coen Brothers as their latest, the mainstream-ish Intolerable Cruelty made a somewhat disappointing 12.5 million despite some pretty positive reviews.

Out Of Time made another 8.5 million while The House Of The Dead, based on the popular Sega shooter videogames, made a sucky 5.6 million. The Rundown added another 5.2 to its tally and Under The Tuscan Sun scored another 4.9 million. Rounding out the top ten were the films Secondhand Lions with 3.2 million and Lost In Translation with 2.8, respectively.

Can a certain horror remake out kill a deadly female assasian? Stay tuned DVD fans!
