XXX MARKS THE SPOT
Action Flick Tops Box Office With
$46 Million Take
It was a weekend of spy games at the nation’s theaters as spy films took three of the top five spots at the box office.

XXX, a modern day reworking of the James Bond genre starring Vin Diesel, finished on top with $46 million.

Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams was third with $17 million, and Austin Powers in Goldmember, remained shagadelic with audiences, finishing fourth with an estimated $13 million for a three-week total of $167.8 million.

Signs, the Mel Gibson frightener about aliens and crop circles, dropped into second place with $30 million, for a two-week total of $118 million.

The new Clint Eastwood film Bloodwork opened in fifth place with a modest $7.2 million.

Despite big numbers for the top films, overall box office numbers remained lower than the same weekend a year ago.
