‘MI3’ tops ‘Poseidon’

A weak $20.3 million opening for “Poseidon” was grim news for Warner Bros., which will have to count on foreign grosses to avoid a financial bath on the $150 million-plus remake. “Mission: Impossible III” took first place very comfortably with $24.5 million. While a 49% second-weekend drop wasn’t awful, it ended Par’s hopes that good reviews and word of mouth would lead to a stronger-than-average hold after pic’s weak $47.7 million bow.
