Hannibal enjoys box office buffet

Feb 26, 2001 by Ian Evans

Anthony Hopkins’ Hannibal Lecter character still has room for dessert.

Weekend box office estimates show that the thriller Hannibal took in an estimated $15.8 million over the weekend, almost doubling the combined take of the critically-savaged 3000 Miles to Graceland and Monkeybone.

At least the Kurt Russell/Kevin Costner flick made it into the top 10 with its fourth place take of roughly $7.1 million. The Bredan Fraser vehicle, Monkeybone, pulled in a mere $2.6 million to land at number eleven.
