'Rules' Rules

09/30/1998 at 12:00 AM EDT

The Marines courtroom drama "Rules of Engagement," with Samuel L. Jackson and Tommy Lee Jones, topped the less-than-sober rehab drama, "28 Days," with Sandra Bullock, at the box office this weekend. The new Paul Newman caper flick, "Where the Movie Is," failed to make the Top 10. And by tomorrow, Julia Roberts's "Erin Brockovich" is expected to become the first $100-million grosser of the year. Go, Julia. Estimated ticket-selling tallies for the weekend:
1. "Rules of Engagement," $10.9 million.
2. "28 Days," $10.4 million.
3. "Keeping the Faith," $8.2 million.
4. "Erin Brockovich," $7 million.
5. "The Road to El Dorado," $6.2 million.
6. "Return to Me," $5.3 million.
7. "American Psycho," $4.9 million.
8. "The Skulls," $4 million.
9. "Final Destination," $2.83 million.
10. "High Fidelity," $2.8 million.
