Farrell Swats Away The Competition
COLIN FARRELL is back on top of the American movie charts thanks to an impressive $37 million (GBP23.125 million) opening weekend for his new film S.W.A.T.
The cop thriller, based on a hit 1970s TV series, toppled AMERICAN WEDDING from the top of the box office chart, and beat another new film, FREAKY FRIDAY, to the top spot.
In S.W.A.T. Farrell plays a rookie on Los Angeles' fearsome Special Weapons + Tactics squad, opposite LL COOL J, SAMUEL JACKSON and MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ.
Freaky Friday, which debuted in second place with a solid $22.3 million (GBP13.94 million), is another 1970s remake - of a JODIE FOSTER film.11/08/2003 02:10
