Weekend Box Office : 'Dracula' Counts for Plenty

November 17, 1992|DAVID J. FOX

Weekend estimates of a $32-million gross for Francis Ford Coppola's "Bram Stoker's Dracula" fell to $30 million when the final tally came in on Monday, but it made no difference in its ranking as the year's third-biggest opening and biggest-ever non-summer premiere. Thanks largely to "Dracula," box-office grosses were roughly double the same weekend a year ago.

Box office held strong for the thriller "Passenger 57," as well as for the longer-running "A River Runs Through It," "Under Siege" and "The Mighty Ducks."

* Disney's animated musical "Aladdin" got off to a flying start with nearly $200,000 in its weekend debut at Los Angeles' El Capitan and New York's Cinema 1. The film also was shown once Saturday night with "The Mighty Ducks"; it opens nationally the day before Thanksgiving.
