US Box Office

Horror remake Dawn of the Dead scared the bejesus out of Christ (pun intended), taking over the nr. 1 spot with $27.3 million. Passion hung on to the second place with another $19.2 million.
Finishing the R-rated top 3 (a rare occasion) is Angelina Jolie starrer Taking Lives with $11.4 million.
Another debut, Eternal Shunshine of the Spotless Mind, a drama featuring Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet opened with $8.6 million on the sixth place. A somewhat disappointing number.
