BOX OFFICE UPDATE
"Batman Begins" has legs!
From www.boxofficeguru.com: "Witches, zombies, and love bugs failed to knock 'Batman Begins' out of the number one spot at the North American box office during the 18th consecutive weekend when ticket sales were down from last year. The super hero actioner grossed an estimated $26.8 million in its second weekend to remain atop the charts falling a moderate 45% from its opening weekend. Given the comic book genre, the hold was impressive and gave Warner Bros. a cume of $121.7 million after 12 days of release. The Christopher Nolan-directed film could find its way to $180-190M domestically.
Overseas, 'Batman Begins' also held up well grossing an estimated $26.7M from 85 markets to boost the international cume to $83.4 million. Holdover markets dropped by an average of only 36%. The Caped Crusader's worldwide tally now stands at $205.1 million after less than two weeks."
