HELL, YEAH

Turns out the competition couldn’t do jack with From Hell. The Hughes brothers gouged out $11 million for a hefty slice of the weekend take. Meanwhile, Riding in Cars…cruised into second without any boys–Cinemascore’s sample showed Drew Barrymore’s audience was 73 percent women–racking up 10.4 million miles on the box office odometer. The only other major opening, The Last Castle, was stormed by Denzel Washington (Training Day took in a well-seasoned $9.3 million) and robbed by Bandits ($8.3 million). That left inmate Redford back on the chain gang with $7.1 million worth of stale bread.
