US Box Office

Batman might have begun last week, but it’s definitely Batman Continues at the box office. Flying in $26.8 million is enough for another sesh at number one, and a total of $121.7 million almost beats Mr. & Ms. Smith ($125.4 million, but with a one week longer run). At 2 is this week’s top opener, Bewitched, starring Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell. With $20.2 million, it’s well within the expectations of this old sitcom remake.
Mr. & Ms. Smith are stuck at three, clinging on to $16.8 million. Number four is for kiddy movie, Herbie: Fully loaded, with $12.8 million in the Beetle’s back trunk. Rounding off the top 5 is zombie horror Land of the Dead, scaring up $10.2 million. Not smart opening a horror movie in such a crowded movie week, as Dawn of the Dead proved last year with an almost triple income (as has the overabundance of this genre proven in the past one or two years).
