The Village Tops Box Office

Posted on August 1, 2004 by

M. Night Shyamalan has continued his dominance at the box office, as he sees his latest film, “The Village” top the box office this week.

The film earned $50.8 million in this, its opening weekend, more than $10 million more than Disney projected it would earn.

His past films include “Signs” and “The Sixth Sense.”

“The Bourne Supremacy” remained strong, bringing in $23.4 million to slip to the number two spot.

“The Manchurian Candidate,” starring Denzel Washington, a remake of an earlier film starring Frank Sinatra, opened at number three with $20.2 million in box office sales.

“I, Robot” and “Spider-man 2″ round out the top 5.

“Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle,” which received rave reviews from critics, despite having a less than stellar cast and low budget, earned $5.2 million to debut in seventh.
