Col, TriStar Pix Still Take The Top Spots

TriStar’s “Legends of the Fall” and Columbia’s “Higher Learning” remained the two top grossing pix for the second week running (Jan. 20-26), a week with little new product and some standbys that are beginning to wear thin.

With Columbia’s “Little Women” landing in the ninth spot, Sony Pictures once again had three of the 10 best-performing films for the period.

The week, though, was largely a yawner. Warner Bros.’ “Murder in the First” was the only new pic in wide release. While critics largely have given their applause, auds seemed to withhold judgment. “Murder” landed in the fifth spot, picking up $6.1 million on 1,237 screens.

Buena Vista’s “Bad Company” had more modest designs, opening on 302 blinds. With its limited release, “Bad” did good business, grossing $1.9 million at North American kiosks.

Gramercy’s “S.F.W.” – the last of the new offerings – appeared to be DOA. Opening on a slim 44 screens, “S.F.W.” copped $60,900, paltry business for a new film.

For the most part, moviegoers decided to catch up on pix they hadn’t already seen.

“Dumb and Dumber” continues to look like one of the smarter moves New Line execs have made, as the Jim Carrey vehicle edged closer to the $100 million milestone. On 2,565 screens, the widest release of any film, “Dumb” took in $7.3 million during the week.

As Paramount added 126 screens to “Nobody’s Fool,” B.O. for the Paul Newman-starrer fell off 21%. Even so, its $6.9 million gross made it the fourth-best performing pic last week. And its $7,488 per theater average was the best of any film in wide release.
