Sony’s “Hollow Man” narrowly claimed the No. 1 spot at the B.O. over the weekend with $13.1 million, according to Monday’s actual totals.
Sunday estimates had projected a tie at $13.1 million with “Space Cowboys,” but the Warner Bros. pic slipped about $30,000 behind when actual results were announced.
MGM’s “Autumn in New York” also retreated to fourth place, behind Warners’ “The Replacements.” Both debuts were right around $11 million for three days. The Lion had called $11.5 million on “Autumn,” which had been good enough for third.
Win for “Hollow” marks the first time since early June that a pic has repeated at No. 1. It’s also the lowest-grossing winner since April. Special-effects thriller has brought in $50.3 million after 10 days.
Frame’s other wide debut, Paramount’s “Bless the Child,” collected $9.4 million, about $200,000 below Sunday’s estimate, finishing No. 7.
