ANGELS Beat the Son of Satan

LITTLE NICKY takes 2nd place; RED PLANET debuts in 5th.

By Steve Biodrowski     November 13, 2000

Columbia's 1st place holdover from last week, Charlie's Angels, fended off assaults from a trio of newcomers to remain in the top spot for its sophomore weekend. The action-adventure-fantasy earned $25-million at the box office, for a reasonable 38% drop from its debut. The two new genre releases had very different debuts, one fairly promising, the other obviously disappointing. New Line's Little Nicky took 2nd place with $18.1-millionnot bad, but far behind the openings of other recent Adam Sandler comedies like The Waterboy (with over $39-million). Meanwhile, Warner Bros.' Red Planet landed in 5th place with only $9-million, apparently the victim of bad word-of-mouth from advance screenings. One other genre holdover, Fox's Bedazzled, remained in the Top Ten, earning $2.5-million.

A Fandom poll conducted on Saturday-Sunday did not bode well for the future of Little Nicky. The film drew only 87 responses, of which the largest percentage (42%), while another 18% gave it a D. 18% gave the film an A, and 12% gave it a B, with the remainder grading the film with a C. Using a numerical system (4 for A, 3 for B, etc), that would give the film a total score of 127 and an average score of almost 1.5 (basically, a D+). By way of comparison, Charlie's Angels earned a total score of 226 and an average score of 2.4.

Below are studio estimates for the weekend's Top Ten films. Final figures will be posted tomorrow.
