‘Chi’ now Miramax’s champ

Pic passes 'Scary Movie' as studio's best

Miramax Films’ Oscar winner “Chicago” broke the $157 million threshold in domestic box office Monday night, making it the highest-grossing film ever released by the company.

Still in the U.S. top ten after 16 weeks in theaters, “Chicago” has hit a domestic cume of $157.1 million, inching ahead of the $157 million tally of “Scary Movie,” released by Miramax’s Dimension Films label. Previous high for a Miramax release was “Good Will Hunting” with $139 million.

“We are very pleased to have it recognized both critically and by moviegoing audiences around the world,” said Miramax COO Rick Sands.

Miramax’s “Chicago” soundtrack CD has gone double platinum and remains in the national top ten for the eleventh consecutive week.

Domestic grosses for previous Miramax best picture Oscar winners “The English Patient” and “Shakespeare in Love” were $79 million and $101 million, respectively.
