Sex Sells -- Even On Monday
Warner Bros.' Sex and the City took in an additional $5.5 million in ticket sales on Monday -- more than most films earned during the entire previous weekend, according to box-office trackers Media By Numbers. By contrast, the No. 2 film on Monday, Paramount's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, took in 3.5 million. As was the case over the weekend, the box-office success of SATC on Monday was driven by women visiting their local theaters in groups. More than 85 percent of ticket buyers were female, according to trade reports. As of Monday the film had grossed $62.5 million.
