When the final box office tally was in, there were no big surprises, but each of the weekend's two top films fell at least $1-million below yesterday's predictions. MISSION IMPOSSIBLE II wound up with a four-day take of $70.8-million for a total so far of $91.82; meanwhile, DINOSAUR took in $32.03-million, bringing its total to $80.45-million. FREQUENCY, the only other genre film to place in the Top 10, landed in 7th place with $3.62-million; that brings the total to $35.08-million. Other science fiction, horror or fantasy films to earn over $1-million were THE FLINSTONES IN VIVA ROCK VEGAS, in 11th place with $1.70-million (total: $30.12) and BATTLEFIELD EARTH in 12th place with $1.07 (total: $20.37).
