X MARKS THE #1 SPOT

Sequel’s 10-Day Total Morphs to $149 Million

X2: X-Men United remained the No. 1 movie, taking in $41.4 million in its second weekend.

Eddie Murphy's family comedy Daddy Day Care opened in second place with $27.6 million,.

X2, the sequel based on the comic book about genetic mutants with superpowers, lifted its 10-day total to $149 million after an opening weekend of $85.6 million, the fourth best of all-time.

By Wednesday, X2 should pass the $157.3 million that X-Men took in during its entire run three years ago.

The overall box office was down, with the top 12 movies grossing $103 million, off 11% from the same weekend last year, when Spider-Man continued to dominate theaters.

The Matrix Reloaded, which debuts Thursday, is expected to top the $58 million opening weekend of Hannibal, the record-holder for R-rated movies. But the higher rating could make it tough for Matrix Reloaded to match the opening of X2, which is rated PG-13.

The Lizzie McGuire Movie came in third with $7.8 million, while Identity landed fourth with $6.3 million and Anger Management came in fifth on $5.5 million.
