ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the recent box office performance of several motion pictures in the U.S. Parramount's "Mission: Impossible III" held off a challenge from Warner Bros. Pictures' "Poseidon" to hold on to the top spot at the box office for the second straight weekend. The Tom Cruise starrer pulled in $25 million in its sophomore frame, down a relatively moderate 48% from its opening a week ago, advancing the 10-day total to $85.1 million. "Poseidon" left port on its opening weekend with $22.2 million, several million more than projected Sunday, but it was a disappointing bow nonetheless.
