Bend It Like Beckham is Back in the Top Ten
June 9th, 2003
Thirteen weeks after its release and more than a month since it first entered the top ten, Bend It Like Beckham is back. In that time, two dozen movies have come and gone, but Bend It Like Beckham has stuck around. This small independent film from Britain has had a wonderful run with at the box office, which has climbed to $20 million domestically and crossed $60 million worldwide. That’s an amazing feat especially when you consider it only cost $8 million to make.
And it has helped launch the careers of its two stars. Parminder K. Nagra has a recurring role on E.R. next season and is in the upcoming Ella Enchanted. And Keira Knightley stars in this summer’s Pirates of the Caribbean.
