Stuart Little Stays Steady At #4

The Super Bowl, American football's biggest game, kept people away from

U.S. theatres this past weekend, but STUART LITTLE, with primary visual

effects by Sony Pictures Imageworks, additional animation by CFX and Rhythm

& Hues, and miniatures by Thunderstone, stayed steady at 4th place in the

box office. Sony's great white hope (a white mouse that is) grossed US$4.78

million bringing its total to $123 million. THE GREEN MILE, with primary

visual effects by ILM, Rhythm & Hues, POP and Matte World Digital, remained

at #5 for the third straight week grossing $4.02 million bringing its cume

to $115.2 million. Slipping one place to 7th, GALAXY QUEST, with primary

visual effects by ILM and additional effects by Light Matters, grossed $3.4

million bringing its cume to $58.8 million. TOY STORY 2 moved back into the

top ten at #10 grossing $2.34 million bringing its cume to $234.3 million.

The Woody and Buzz Lightyear-vehicle has now moved into the top twenty of

U.S. box office history. FANTASIA/2000 moved up to 11th but made about

$180,000 less than it did last weekend. The new musical spectacle took home

$1.86 million bringing its total gross to $16.4 million. Other special
