    A couple of positional changes by the new releases:

    54 Finding Nemo DISNEY/PIXAR $191,487,211 5/30/03 (wasn't in the top 100 a week ago)
    52 Bruce Almighty UNIVERSAL $193,818,135 5/23/03
    22 The Matrix: Reloaded WARNERS $257,486,680 5/15/03
    43 X2: X-Men United FOX $207,305,598 5/2/03

    How did What Lies Beneath get in there? That movie sucked.

    Overrated. Titanic. Most overrated movie in history. Good movie, but come on, it wasn't THAT good.
    I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star in somebody else's eyes... but why... why... why can't it be me?

    Yep, the movies you listed though are still raking in alot of dough so i think until no theaters are showing them is when they add the movies, but the movies that you posted are around there, they could move up a few spots. And expect The Hulk and Charlie's Angels to make it too.

    I was surprised The Hulk did so well the first week considering all the negative hype it's received and that piss poor trailer.

    AnnaRHR - Wow, I agree with all of your hated list except for Scary Movie. I feel like that movie was meant to be bad and it lived up to its expectations

    Watching Titanic in the movie theater was one of the most unpleasant movie experiences in my life. I saw it with two friends (it was their second time and they still cried). I however, couldn't wait for the movie to end. I didn't wear a watch so I was a complete pest with the "how much longer?" I wish I had driven myself that day.

    I saw Titanic once in a theater and that was enough for me. Obviously I knew what was going to happen and throwing in a romance a la "Pearl Harbor" doesn't increase my interest at all (although I'm also not a 12 year old girl who saw it 50 times)

    Would be very interesting to see how the original Star Wars, Jaws, and some of the other classics fare on this list once you account for today's astronomical ticket prices...

    I agree Mosaik it would be interesting to see a list for actual numbers of ppl that went to see the movie instead of counting the ticket sales and what not. I'm thinking if it were that way the list would be completely different.
