‘Lambs,’ ‘Enemy’ Scare Up Hefty Biz; ‘Scenes,’ ‘He, She’ Mild

Thrillers “Silence Of The Lambs” and “Sleeping With The Enemy” maintained their stranglehold on U.S. boxoffice as peace broke out in the Middle East.

Romantic comedies “Scenes From A Mall” and “He Said, She Said” had mediocre national openings of $4.8 million and $3.6 million respectively.

The top 10 pictures grossed $61,898,443, down 24% from last week’s commanding $81,648,170 level.

Orion’s “Lambs” was rock solid, dipping only 8% in its sophomore frame to average $10,738. “Enemy” slid 24%, but has earned over $45 million in just three weeks.

U’s “King Ralph” had wobbly legs, ceding 39% in its second session. Steve Martin’s “L.A. Story” is failing to click, plunging 43% in its third week out.

Fox’ “Home Alone” continued its smash run with nearly $6 million in its 15th week to pass $237 million in all, giving it a good shot at challenging the $251 million domestic mark of “Batman.”

Orion Pictures’ “Dances With Wolves” passed $118 million, dipping only 26% in its 16th outing.

WB’s “Nothing But Trouble” plummeted 50% in its second skein, posting a poor $1,365 screen average.

Aries’ documentary “Superstar” began with an okay $8,065 average at four sites. Expanded’s “Third Animation Celebration” increased its take 40%, earning nearly $850,000 since bowing last Christmas.

Cinecom’s “Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead” earned nearly $10,000 per screen in its third outing.
