"Sahara" Overtakes "Sin" at the Ticket Counter

by | April 11, 2005 | Comments

Box Office Mojo shares this weekend’s ticket sales, and it seems that Breck Eisner’s "Sahara" was the hot new ticket. The Matthew McConaughey adventure flick grossed approximately $18.5 million in just over 3,100 theaters. Dropping to second place was Dimension’s somewhat controversial "Sin City," which managed to pull in just over $14m in its second weekend. Debuting at third place was the Drew Barrymore rom-com "Fever Pitch," which made about $13m at 3,200 venues.A virtual tie for fourth place saw "Guess Who" and "Beauty Shop" earn about $7.1m each, and fifth place went to "Robots," which has now grossed over $110m to date. Next Friday sees only one new wide release ("The Amityville Horror"), so you can expect to see several of these flicks on the chart next Sunday.
