    Post 'Scooby-Doo' snacks on $56 million at box office

    <a href="http://movies.yahoo.com/movies/feature/weekendboxofficer.html" target="_blank">yahoo.com</a>
    </font><blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><hr /><font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial"> In one of the biggest surprises of a red-hot summer movie season, the feature version of the vintage cartoon TV series bow-wowed at No. 1 with a $56.4 million weekend haul, according to studio estimates issued Sunday. The producers of the Warner Bros. release said they would have been happy with an opening in the mid-$30 million range.

    "Scooby-Doo" ranks as the biggest June opener in history, surpassing the three-year-old record of "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me" ($54.9 million). It is also the third biggest opening of 2002, behind "Spider-Man" ($114.8 million) and "Star Wars: Episode II: Attack of the Clones" ($80 million).

    The film, headlined by Freddie Prinze, Jr., his fiancee Sarah Michelle Gellar and Matthew Lillard, cost about $80 million to make, with a quarter of that spent on the computer-animated titular pooch. </font><hr /></blockquote><font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">with a quarter of that spent on the computer-animated titular pooch... still an ugly CGI :mad:

    </font><blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><hr /><font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial"> In between, were two other debuts, both delayed by almost a year. The Matt Damon spy thriller "The Bourne Identity" (Universal) opened at No. 2 with a strapping $27.5 million; and Nicolas Cage's WWII drama "Windtalkers" (MGM) earned a disappointing $14.5 million, the latest in a string of flops at billionaire Kirk Kerkorian's studio. "Bourne" reportedly cost $60 million and "Windtalkers" upwards of $120 million </font><hr /></blockquote><font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">"Windtalkers" .... $120 million to make...wow

    Final numbers were released on Monday and Scooby Doo came in with just over 56million. Meaning that it did not beat out Austin Powers 2 for the highest opening in June.
