Weekend Box Office : 'The Fugitive' Still Running Strong

August 24, 1993|DANIEL CERONE

Jean-Claude Van Damme made some sweet moves in "Hard Target" for his biggest opening ever, but "The Fugitive" captured the box-office flag for the third straight weekend with $18.1 million. With $89.1 million already stashed away, the tireless "Fugitive" is on pace to become one of the Top 10 quickest films ever to reach $100 million. "Hard Target," the first American picture for Hong Kong action director John Woo, finished second with $10.1 million. New Line's campy new "Surf Ninjas" wiped out, grossing $2 million on 1,321 screens--a per-screen average of $1,534--to finish 12th.

* Woody Allen's personal problems during the shooting of "Manhattan Murder Mystery" did not seem to hurt the film's limited opening--a solid $2.1 million on 268 screens--with a $7,836 per-screen average.
