'Ocean's 12' Makes Big Splash at Box Office


There was no doubt as to what film ruled the box office this weekend as the star studded 'Ocean's Twelve' ran away with the most ticket sales by a large margin. The film, starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Matt Damon, Catherine Zeta-Jones and a host of other top stars took in $40.9 million according to studio estimates.

The film had a bigger opening weekend than its predecessor, 'Ocean's Eleven' which had an opening weekend of $38.1 million.

Wesley Snipes' 'Blade: Trinity' opened in second place with a disappointing $16.1 for the weekend. The studio was hoping for closer to double that. The film, about a half-man, half-vampire played by Snipes opened on Wednesday and has taken in $24.6 million since it opened.

'National Treasure' fell to third place after holding on to the top spot for the past three weeks. It's weekend box office was estimated at $10 million. 'The Polar Express' finished fourth with $9.8 million as it continued to draw a steady if unspectacular following.

'Christmas with the Kranks' finished fifth followed by 'The Incredibles,' 'The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie,' 'Closer' and 'Finding Neverland.' Oliver Stone's 'Alexander' finished a disappointing tenth for the week, drawing in just $1.4 million for the weekend. The three hour epic about the Macedonian dictator and general has taken in only $32.5 million in the three weeks since its release.
