Charting the industry

A mummy, Shrek, Hannibal and Wilson the volleyball – in sum, freaky characters are reeling in gobal auds to the theater. Evan though no one film has surpassed the worldwide gross of 2000’s top grossers, “Mission:Impossible 2”; ($545 million) and “Gladiator”; ($449 million), the globe has yet to witness the expected “everybody”; movie thrills of Warner Bros.’ “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” and Disney’s “Monsters, Inc.” Only one foreign film has pierced the top 50 list: No. 33, “Spirited Away” from Japan.
