antiTainment NEWS: Passion Tops Easter Box Office - Alamo Loses In A Draw

04-11-04 Keavin
The Alamo was expected to be the clear victor at the box office for the Easter weekend but it ended up in a draw for third place. The historical epic lost out to another historical epic, Mel Gibson's “The Passion of the Christ'' reclaimed the top spot at the North American box office with estimated ticket sales of just over $17 million for Friday and Saturday. Christ easily defeated “Hellboy”, relegating last week’s No. 1 to the No 2 spot with ticket sales of $11.1 million. 

Remember the Alamo? Seems plenty of people have and decided not to flood the theatres to watch another retelling of the 1836 standoff between Texans and the Mexican army. That battle ended without either side claiming victory and the film, which was expected to dominate the box office this holiday weekend, ended up living up to the battle it was based on by tying for third place with the far less marketed “Johnson Family Vacation”. Both films brought in an estimated $9.2 million each. 

The Rock had a solid debut last week with “Walking Tall”, which landed at No. 2, the film was walking less tall this week, dropping down to 5th place with $8.3 million in sales.
