The One "Ring"

 

Despite positive sneak preview reactions from filmgoers and mixed film reviews, The Ring shot to number one with 15 million over the weekend, certainly a strong debut. Sweet Home Alabama continued to be strong with 9.6 million, while Red Dragon dropped again as it loses its bite with 8.8 million. My Big Fat Greek Wedding pulled in 7.1 million, while there was a tie between Brown Sugar and the new thriller Abandon (from Stephen Gaghan, the Oscar® winning writer of "Traffic"), each with 5.3 million.

The two action flicks, The Transporter and The Tuxedo took in 5 and 4.3 million. Finally, two family films, Jonah: A Veggietales Movie and Tuck Everlasting each brought in another 4.1 and 3.7 million each. November's just around the corner, and the movie season will soon be heating up...
