Ben bumps Obi-Wan

Jun 04, 2002 by Ian Evans

The number one flick this past weekend starred neither a Jedi nor a web-slinger. Its star was a CIA analyst.

The Sum of All Fears, which stars Ben Affleck, debuted with $31.1 million. George LucasAttack of the Clones had a $21 million box office in its third weekend while the Tobey Maguire vehicle Spider-Man came in third with $14.3. The roughly 57% drop in box office for the latest Star Wars has many analysts predicting that it will not surpass Spider-Man at year’s end.

Undercover Brother, another new release that’s getting some strong reviews, debuted in the No. 4 spot with $12 million while Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron added another $11.3 million to its total.
