'Gladiator' Wins Box Office It was box office maximus this weekend for "Gladiator," which made $XXXII.VII million, according to Variety, which noted that the figure (see translation below) was neither record-setting nor even up to studio projections. Still, the long, R-rated Roman epic grossed more than its next six competitors combined, according to industry estimates. The Kim Basinger, drama "I Dreamed of Africa," tanked. The weekend race:
1. "Gladiator," $32.7 million.
2. "U-571," $7.6 million.
3. "Frequency," $6.5 million.
4. "The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas," $6.3 million.
5. "Where the Heart Is," $5 million.
6. "Love and Basketball," $3.4 million.
7. "Keeping the Faith," $2.8 million.
8. "I Dreamed of Africa," $2.5 million.
9. "Rules of Engagement," $2.4 million.
10. "28 Days," $2.35 million.
