Sum of All Fears Still #1 at U.S. Box Office

The Sum of All Fears continued to scare up big figures with moviegoers, taking in $18.7 million to remain the No. 1 film for a second weekend despite competition from strong debuts.

Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood opened soundly in second place with $16.35 million, while Bad Company, proved a bit of a bomb. It debuted in fourth place with just $10.5 million.

Rounding out the top five were the year's biggest hits. Star Wars: Episode II—Attack of the Clones, was No. 3 with $13.9 million, lifting its total to $255 million after 25 days. Spider-Man came in fifth with $10 million for a 38-day total of $370.1 million.

Next weekend brings three major releases: the live-action adaptation of Scooby-Doo, Matt Damon's spy adventure The Bourne Identity and Nicolas Cage's war drama Windtalkers.
