Exorcist Prequel Attracts Terrified Cinemagoers

Prequel EXORCIST: THE BEGINNING has scared up another chart-topping movie weekend for the horror franchise at the American box office.

The RENNY HARLIN film, which stars STELLAN SKARSGARD as a young FATHER MERRIN, made $18.2 million (GBP10.1 million) in its opening weekend in the US, according to Sunday (22AUG04) estimates.

That figure was enough to topple ALIEN VS PREDATOR, which fell from pole position to fourth with a $12.5 million (GBP6.9 million) second weekend take - giving the action horror film an impressive $63 million (GBP35 million) 10-day haul.

The only other new entry in the top 10 was DELIVERANCE-style comedy WITHOUT A PADDLE ($13.7 million/GBP7.6 million), which came in at number two.
