Depp's Great Year Continues

JOHNNY DEPP is continuing his triumphant year at the American box office - he's back at the top of the charts.

After wowing film fans in summer (03) blockbuster PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL, the movie star has scored another hit with ANTONIO BANDERAS in ONCE UPON A TIME IN MEXICO.

The ROBERT RODRIGUEZ film, in which Depp plays an oddball CIA agent, took in $24 million (GBP15 million) at the weekend to revitalise the movie industry, which has slumped this summer.

Other new entries in the top 10 include NICOLAS CAGE's MATCHSTICK MEN, which took in $13.3 million (GBP8.3 million) over the weekend, and horror film CABIN FEVER ($8.45 million/GBP5.3 million).

Meanwhile, Depp's Pirates of The Caribbean enjoyed another week in the top 10 - at number 10th - with a healthy $4.6 million (GBP2.9 million) weekend take. That propels it's 10-week total to a staggering $288 million (GBP180 million).
