Hobbits still rule
Jan 07, 2003 by Ian Evans
Those adventurous hobbits and The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers continued to rule the roost again this weekend, pulling in over $25 million over the weekend and bringing their three week total to a whopping $261 million.
Over in the romantic comedy department, Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant’s Two Weeks Notice continued to amuse to the tune of $11 million while Jennifer Lopez’s Maid in Manhattan cleaned another $8.6 million out of its patrons’ wallets.
The buzzing you heard in fifth place had to be the Oscar® buzz surrounding Jack Nicholson’s performance in About Schmidt; his flick took in $8.5 million.
