the weekend in fourth place in the U.S. box office, making US$9.43 million.

THE GREEN MILE, with primary visual effects by ILM, Rhythm & Hues, POP and

Matte World Digital, is still bringing in green bills for Warner Bros.,

making another $3.09 million and bringing its total gross to $124.4

million. With other kid fare like THE TIGGER MOVIE and SNOW DAY hitting the

U.S. movie houses this past weekend STUART LITTLE, with primary visual

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

home $2.71 million, raising its cume to $132 million. GALAXY QUEST held on

to the top ten with a finish at 9th. The STAR TREK-spoof, with primary

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