Comedy DIARY OF A MAD BLACK WOMAN has served up a big box office surprise
in America after toppling Will Smith's HITCH from number one.
The movie, starring Tyler Perry and Steve Harris, made $22. 7 million
(GBP11.9 million) in its opening weekend (25-27FEB05), according to estimates
It fared much better than Wes Craven's werewolf movie CURSED, which was
expected to claim the top spot yesterday (27FEB05) - it made just $9.6 million
(GBP5 million) to come in fourth.
Meanwhile, pop star Christina Milian's new movie Man of the House was the
only other new entry in the top 10 - it landed at number five with a $9 million
(GBP4.7 million) take.
