    'Return of the King' Reigns at Box Office

    http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmp...o/box_office_1

    LOS ANGELES - The final installment of "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy continued to reign at the box office despite a handful of new openings as Hollywood had its best Christmas weekend ever.

    "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" pulled in $51.2 million in ticket sales for a total of $224 million since opening two weeks ago, according to studio estimates released Sunday.

    The fantasy film also posted the best Christmas Day gross of any current movie, $14.6 million.

    Out of the gate, the movie also has outstripped the first two chapters of the trilogy. It took just 11 days to cross the $200 million mark — one day less than part two, "The Two Towers."

    Four movies opened over the holiday weekend, including "Cheaper by the Dozen." The Steve Martin (news) comedy was No. 2 with $28.2 million over the weekend.

    The Civil War epic "Cold Mountain" opened in third place with $14.5 million. The R-rated, 2 1/2-hour movie opened on 2,167 screens.

    "Paycheck," a summer-style action movie, opened with $13.9 million, and "Peter Pan," a live-action retelling of the classic story, grossed $11.4 million.

    The total estimated weekend box office receipts for the top dozen pictures was $168.6 million, a record, said Paul Dergarabedian, president of box-office tracking company Exhibitor Relations. The top 12 movies over the same weekend last year pulled in $155.9 million, or 8.2 percent less, he said.

    Wow!
    You're waiting for a train, a train that will take you far away. You know where you hope this train will take you, but you can't be sure. But it doesn't matter - because we'll be together.

    She's just too pretty for Hollywood. I don't know, put her in a glass box and display her at the Metropolitan Museum of Art or something. - Jake on the topic of Scarlett Johansson.

    Well, I've given 10 to RotK so far, and before long I'll probably give them another 10. God damn I liked that movie.

    I can understand the highere prices because the theatre si huge, and everything is very nice, very comfortable seats and so on. What sucks is that there is no bargain tickets for early or weekday shows
