ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the boxoffice performance of motion pictures released worldwide. Universal's film "The Break-Up" did about $1.1 million better than early estimates, closing boxoffice for the weekend with a debut of $39.2 million, instead of the projected $38.1 million. The film "X-Men: The Last Stand" seemed destined to hold on to the top spot for the second consecutive weekend, after its sensational record-breaking four-day holiday gross of $122.9 million. Paramount's film "Over the Hedge," held up solidly on its third weekend in theaters, taking the third slot with $20.6 million Sony's film "The Da Vinci Code."
