The Musketeer Is All For One At The Box Office
Despite generally poor reviews, the swordplay actioner THE MUSKETEER, with primary visual effects by Das Werk, managed to leap to the front of a rather wan pack during the first weekend of the fall movie season bringing in $10.7M for its debut. JEEPERS CREEPERS, with primary visual effects by E=MC2 and Max Ink Café LLC, fell three spots from last week's number one to come in fourth with a weekend gross of $6.1M, bringing its two week total to $24.3M. RUSH HOUR 2, with primary visual effects by Cinesite, has passed the $200M mark with a weekend take of $5.9M and a total gross of $206.1M in its 6th week of release. RAT RACE, with animated opening titles by Wild Brain, slipped to eighth earning $4.4M raising its cume to $43.2M. The comedy JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK, with primary visual effects by Digital Research Lab, MetroLight Studios and Tigar Hare Studios, dropped out of the top ten collecting just $2.3M for $25.6M total to date. Warner Bros. OSMOSIS JONES is falling at a rapid pace. Having been pulled from all but 182 theaters, last week's gross was a little over $111,000, adding up to just $13.2M in five weeks of release.
