For the first time in four weeks, Hannibal was not the top film at the weekend box office.

That honor went to the Brad Pitt/[textileRef:290568998584321094ec02:linkStartMarker:“Julia Roberts”:/cr/juliaroberts] flick The Mexican which took in an estimated $20.3 million. Even the David Arquette kiddie film See Spot Run beat Anthony Hopkin’s Hannibal Lecter by a human hair as it brought in about $10.2 million.

Poor old Monkeybone though still didn’t crack the top 10, bringing in a paltry $1 million. The $70 million dollar Brendan Fraser film better hope it becomes a huge video cult flick.
