B.O. verdict: ‘Jury’ lags ‘Kill Bill’

'Runaway' fails second place appeal

HOLLYWOOD — The second-place finish by Miramax’s “Kill Bill, Vol. 1” remained unchanged in the wake of an unusual assertion by producers of “Runaway Jury” that the courtroom drama would take the silver medal.

Monday’s final figures showed “Kill Bill” grossed $12.4 million in its soph session while 20th Century Fox’s courtroom drama opened with $11.8 million, with potential coin from older males likely held down due to the distraction of World Series baseball.

Sunday’s estimates had been far closer, showing “Kill Bill” with $12.5 million and “Jury” with $12.1 million, prompting New Regency to suggest boldly at that point that the lit adaptation had actually outperformed “Bill” by at least $300,000.

“We think that ‘Runaway Jury’ will have strong legs in the coming weeks, based on what were very strong exit polls and excellent word of mouth,” a New Regency rep said Monday.

New Line’s “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” easily won the frame with $28.1 million.
