Hannibal Claims More Countries Around The Globe
In a lackluster premiere in ninth, DRACULA 2000 sucked on $421,939. Finishing off the Italian top ten, CROUCHING TIGER added $401,113 to its $2.95 million total. In its Japanese debut, CAST AWAY sunk in $7.77 million. Dropping to second, UNBREAKABLE brought home another $3.49 million, raising its Japanese cume to $17.25 million. In fourth, THE CRIMSON RIVERS tacked $963,747 to its Japanese total of $10.14 million. In South Africa, CAST AWAY couldn't beat the draw of Mel Gibson and WHAT WOMEN WANT, so its debut settled for second, grossing $220,218. In third, UNBREAKABLE rescued another $71,804, advancing its South African cume to $587,287. Rounding out the South African top ten, VERTICAL LIMIT added $27,343 to its $1.19 million total.
