Will Smith's I, Robot Tops American Box Office

WILL SMITH's latest movie I, ROBOT has continued his run of successful July openings, after ousting SPIDER-MAN 2 from the top spot with a US box office haul of $52.25 million (GBP29 million).

I, Robot is now Smith's best debut ever, coming in just ahead of INDEPENDENCE DAY, MEN IN BLACK and MEN IN BLACK II - all July premieres which opened in the $50-$52 million (GBP27.7-28.8 million) range. His other strong July openings are WILD WILD WEST and BAD BOYS II.

After two weekends at number one, TOBEY MAGUIRE's Spider-Man 2 slipped to number with $24.2 million (GBP13.4 million), lifting its total domestic haul to $301.7 million (GBP167 million) after just 19 days.

The weekend's other new wide release, HILARY DUFF romance A CINDERELLA STORY, premiered in third place with $13.8 million (GBP7.6 million).

In a narrow release, JEFF BRIDGES and KIM BASINGER's THE DOOR IN THE FLOOR had a healthy debut, taking in $444,983 (GBP247,212) in 47 theatres. The family drama was adapted from JOHN IRVING's novel A WIDOW FOR ONE YEAR.
