Vice Raids Box Office


Miami Vice overtook Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest at the box office over the weekend as it confiscated $25.7 million. Nevertheless, in its fourth week, Pirates continued to amass a sizable treasure, adding $20.6 million to its gross and bringing total ticket sales to date to $358.5 million -- the most ever earned by a Disney movie. The teen movie John Tucker Must Die had a better-than-expected opening, taking in $14.3 million. But Warner Bros.' animated The Ant Bully was virtually exterminated as it brought in only $8.4 million. Warner Bros. also saw its hugely expensive Superman Returns fall out of the top ten as it took in $3.8 million. Another newcomer, the Woody Allen crime comedy Scoop opened with $3.04 million in just 538 theaters, but its per-theater average of $5,663 was second only to Miami Vice's $8,515. In their second week, Lady in the Water and Clerks II each fell 60 percent.

The top ten films over the weekend, according to final figures compiled by Exhibitor Relations (figures in parentheses represent total gross to date):
1. Miami Vice, Universal, $25,723,815, (New); 2. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, Disney, $20,606,578, 4 Wks. ($358,485,761); 3.
