Live Free And Die Hard Scores With Filmgoers

If Ratatouille's box-office receipts were somewhat lower than expected, Live Free and Die Hard's were just the opposite. The fourth Die Hard movie took in $33.2 million to raise its gross (from Wednesday) to $48.2 million. Also debuting strongly was Michael Moore's Sicko, which made the top-ten list with $4.5 million, despite playing in only 441 theaters. The Weinstein Co. plans to expand it to about 650 theaters on Tuesday. But Focus Features' Evening, with an impressive cast of female stars, came in behind Sicko, landing in 10th place with just $3.4 million. Meanwhile, Universal's Evan Almighty dropped from first to third place, bringing in $15 million.

The top ten films for the weekend, according to studio estimates compiled by Media by Numbers:
1. Ratatouille, $47.2 million; 2. Live Free or Die Hard, $33.15 million; 3. Evan Almighty, $15.1 million; 4. 1408, $10.6 million; 5. Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, $9 million; 6. Knocked Up, $7.4 million; 7. Ocean's Thirteen, $6.05 million; 8. Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, $5 million; 9. Sicko, $4.5 million; 10. Evening, $3.5 million.
