Matt Damon Shows Box-Office Supremacy
Supremacy pulled in an estimated $53.5 million, nearly double the opening weekend take of $27.1 million for Bourne Identity in summer 2002, according to studio estimates.
Elsewhere on the chart, Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11, which cost an estimated $6 million to make, has so far made $103.35 million in the U.S. alone, making it the first documentary ever to top the $100-million mark.
Less joyous was the outcome for Halle Berry's Catwoman, which reputedly cost just under $100 million to produce and market before being mauled by critics, who were more bored by it than anything else. The feline flick's box office was tepid for what was being trumpeted as another summer blockbuster.
As for I, Robot, it's not exactly hurting, reports the Associated Press. Its 10-day total is about $95.4 million.
The weekend's Top 10, according to estimates, are as follows:
1. The Bourne Supremacy, $53.5 million
2. I, Robot, $22.05 million
3. Catwoman, $17.16 million
4. Spider-Man 2, $15 million
5. A Cinderella Story, $8.04 million
6. Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, $7.1 million
7. Fahrenheit 9/11, $5 million
8. The Notebook, $4.45 million
9. King Arthur, $3.06 million
10. Shrek 2, $2.4 million
