    Pirates steal BO & Nemo tops Neo

    http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmp...o/box_office_4

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Disney was rolling in doubloons as "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" plundered the box office for $46.4 million in its first weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday.

    Overall box-office revenues were up slightly, ending a string of four down weekends. The top 12 movies grossed $140 million, up 3.5 percent from the same weekend last year.

    For the year, Hollywood receipts are running about 5 percent behind 2002 revenues.

    Based on the Disney theme-park attraction, the movie starring Johnny Depp (news) had taken in $70.4 million since opening Wednesday.

    Debuting in second place was Sean Connery (news)'s literary superhero adventure "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen," which had a $23.25 million opening weekend. Connery stars as Victorian-era adventurer Allan Quatermain leading a team of characters lifted from literature, including Dorian Gray, Capt. Nemo and Dr. Jekyll.

    "Pirates of the Caribbean" commandeered the box-office lead from the previous weekend's No. 1 flick, "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines," which fell to third place with $19.6 million. "Terminator 3" pushed its 12-day total to $110.5 million.

    "Finding Nemo," the year's top-grossing movie, was No. 5 for the weekend with $8.2 million, lifting its total to $290.8 million

    and Nemo sinks Neo and wow .. T3 might have a hard time to break even

    hehe, bad year for blockbusters with ultra-high expectations and even higher budgets.
    not only t3 won't break even, i see the same happening with charlie's angels and the hulk.
    i'd love to see finding nemo as the top grossing movie of the year. could be head to head with return of the king.
    somebody told me you have a boyfriend who looks like a girldfriend that i had in february of last year the killers

    cool, Nemo did kick Neos *** =)

    by the way. American numbers, right? If So, the Hulk will definatly break even. Not bad considering how much ppl seem to hate it (not me included).

    Too much 'good' and 'mediocre' blockbusters this year to choose from... what do you expect?

    And yeah... Nemo tops Neo... serves those Matrix freaks right...

    Na. Its very good. Don't trust the american audience after watching Hulk. They don't know whats good. Mindless zombies!
    I bet they think Sinbad is a childrens movies. Far from it. Its a light hearted adult animation from DW.

    IMO..Pirates was great...I am glad to see it open so well...didn't expect as high as it did, but I predicted before I saw the movie..and after I saw it thought that it would do really really well.

    Awesome that Nemo topped Neo...only a matter of time before Nemo breaks to 300....
