Fantasy and science-fiction films dominated the box office this weekend, taking the four top spots, thanks to three newcomers and one strong holdover. Universal's live-action remake of How the Grinch Stole Christmas
took 1st place at the box office this weekend with an estimated $55-million, more than twice as much as runner up The Rugrats in Paris,
which had to settle for a reasonably impressive $23-million. In 3rd place after three weeks was Charlie's Angels
, which earned another $13.7-million. The Sixth Day
had to settle for 4th place, with $13.2-million. Meanwhile, two films in the sophomore outings fared poorly, each dropping by more than 50%: Little Nicky
fell like a falling angel from 2nd to 7th place with $7.7-million, and Red Planet
's orbit decayed to the tune of $2.7-million, leaving it in 10th place.
