`The Rock' runs down box-office lead
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

Los Angeles-AP -- The Rock smacked down the competition with his action comedy. "The Rundown" debuted as the weekend's top movie by earning 18 and a-half (m) million dollars.

Diane Lane's romance "Under the Tuscan Sun" opened in second place, according to studio estimates. It edged last weekend's number-one movie, "Underworld," which slipped to third.

The weekend's other new wide release -- Drew Barrymore and Ben Stiller's black comedy "Duplex," directed by Danny DeVito -- debuted weakly in seventh place.

Overall Hollywood revenues were down. The top 12 movies took in 79-point-one (m) million dollars, off 14 percent from the same weekend last year.
