The Two Towers hits another milestone
January 21st, 2003
Early estimates for the Martin Luther King Jr. long weekend have The Two Towers passing the $300 million mark on Monday. If these estimates hold up, then the second movie in the Lord of the Rings trilogy will have passed that mark exactly 3 times faster than the first movie. However, while The Two Towers started much stronger than Fellowship of the Rings, its week-to-week drop-off has been larger. So the good news for New Line Cinema is the sequel should easily surpass both its predecessor and Attack of the Clones, perhaps as early as next weekend. The bad news is Spider-man’s claim of top Box Office draw for 2002 is quite safe.
