BOX OFFICE

Posted on

HELLUVA BOW Frank the dog may have barked MIBII into first again, but Tom Hanks is taking the high Road. Despite a medium-size release and various nabobs nattering that Academy fish won’t bite Oscar bait this early in the year, Road to Perdition made other newcomers look like pug uglies, drawing comparisons to another Hanks summertime smash, Saving Private Ryan. Elsewhere, Reign of Fire slew 15.6 million dragons, to land in third. And summer’s biggest, fattest indie box office story is My Big Fat Greek Wedding (see story, page 19), which hit the $27 million mark.
