WEEKEND BOX-OFFICE

Hitch edges out Constantine...

Nobody is sure what the final box-office figures will be after the official 4-day President's Day Weekend ends tomorrow, but after the first three days, HITCH actually managed to edge out Keanu Reeves' CONSTANTINE, if only by a million or so bucks (although technically, CONSTANTINE made more money per-screen at $10,155 vs HITCH's $8,895-- the latter played in more theaters).

Reeves' haul was still quite impressive though, especially when you consider that the film was rated-R, limiting the number of under-17 year olds going to see it. In comparison, the original MATRIX only managed to score $27.8M when it debuted in April of 1999. HITCH, on the other hand, has already made $90M+ after only 10 days of release, and will be the first film of 2005 to gross over $100M in the next few days.

In terms of the "family movie feud" between BECAUSE OF WINN-DIXIE and SON OF THE MASK, it seems as though the former film managed to get more kids into theaters with over $10M in receipts, while the MASK sequel still surprised with a touch of $7M. The rest of the top 10 wasn't all that different from last week, although most films managed to retain much of their audience, including surprises like BOOGEYMAN and ARE WE THERE YET?

Next week sees the addition of the long-delayed CURSED, the Tommy Lee Jones-starring MAN OF THE HOUSE and DIARY OF A MAD BLACK WOMAN (story of my life).
