Six New Movies, None in the Top 3


The Box Office Report has been updated with studio estimates for the weekend. Click here for the full box office estimates of the top 12 films and check back on Monday for final figures based on actual box office. Despite the release of six new movies in wide or semi-wide release, Sony’s comedy Superbad, produced by Judd Apatow, stayed on top for a second week in a row with $18 million, while Universal’s The Bourne Ultimatum and New Line’s Rush Hour 3 were in a tight race for second place as each brought in just over $12 million. The big surprise of the weekend came in the form of Rowan Atkinson’s comedy sequel Mr. Bean’s Holiday , which beat all the other new movies opening this weekend despite opening in significantly fewer theatres.
