For the second weekend in a row, Christopher Nolan‘s "Batman Begins" claimed the #1 spot at the weekend box office races. The superhero flick pulled in over $26 million in its second weekend, giving it a healthy margin of victory over the competition.

Debuting in second place with a $20 million haul was the Nicole Kidman / Will Ferrell romantic comedy "Bewitched," which bowed in more than 3,100 theaters, while another holdover, "Mr. & Mrs. Smith," snagged third place with $16.8 million. Fourth and fifth place went to a pair of newcomers: "Herbie: Fully Loaded" tallied just under $13 million from 3,500 venues, while George Romero‘s "Land of the Dead" pulled in just over $10 million at 2,200 theaters.

Next week sees the release of two more hopefuls, one a heavy hitter (Steven Spielberg‘s "War of the Worlds") and the other … not so much (Martin Lawrence‘s kid’s basketball comedy "Rebound").
