O’seas auds look to be scared silly

'Hollow Man,' 'Scary Movie' top B.O.

“Hollow Man” scared the living daylights out of auds in Argentina, Hong Kong and Sweden during the weekend, while “Scary Movie” thrilled the U.K. and “Nutty Professor II: The Klumps” made merry in Mexico.

Paul Verhoeven’s invisible man saga ruled in Argentina, grossing an estimated $464,000 from Thursday through Saturday, and in Hong Kong, with an estimated $433,000 in the same period. The Kevin Bacon starrer fetched an estimated $260,000 on Friday-Saturday in Sweden; it was unclear from prelim figures whether “Hollow Man” or local title “Together” (set in a Stockholm commune in the mid-1970s) took line honors.

Columbia TriStar’s sci-fier held pole position in Spain, despite falling by about 43% after a stellar debut, collecting an estimated $900,000 on Friday-Saturday, ahead of freshman “Road Trip.”

“Scary Movie” minted an estimated $2.5 million on 426 prints on Friday-Saturday in the U.K., comfortably ahead of Guy Ritchie’s crime caper “Snatch,” which caught an estimated $1.8 million in its soph session on 387 after a boisterous bow, easing by 25%.

Miramax’s horror spoof was No. 1 for the second weekend in a row in Oz, ringing up an estimated $1 million in four days on 172, bringing its 11-day territory total to $3 million.

Fox’s laffer “Big Momma’s House” landed Down Under in second spot with an estimated $901,000 on 198. The “Nutty Professor” sequel was top of the class in Mexico, scoring an estimated $450,000 in two days on 228.

In its first major market engagement, “Coyote Ugly” pulled an estimated $1 million on 500 in Germany (Thursday through Saturday with partial estimates for Sunday), placing third behind “The X-Men,” which fetched an estimated $1.8 million in its second lap after a potent preem, and the resilient “Road Trip’s” estimated $1.4 million in its third.

“Ugly” took top spot in Austria, coining an estimated $192,000 on 60 in the same frame, ahead of “X-Men” and “Road Trip.” “The Perfect Storm” raked in $212,000 in its first day on 56 prints in Belgium, which blew away the territory’s opening day scores of “Gone in 60 Seconds,” “Face/Off” and “Con Air,” according to Warner Bros. Intl.

After a solid start to its international mission in Italy, “Space Cowboys” ranked No. 1 in its first day in Paris, on par with the openings there of “Absolute Power,” “In the Line of Fire” and “Contact.”
