'Jeopardy,' 'Kings' Get Royal Treatment

October 05, 1999|ROBERT W. WELKOS

The male-oriented "Three Kings" failed to beat female-oriented "Double Jeopardy" but still posted good numbers. "Double Jeopardy" grossed $17 million to remain the top-grossing film for the second week, while "Three Kings" debuted with $15.8 million.

"Drive Me Crazy" opened with $6.8 million, but two other new films, "The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland" ($3.3 million) and "Mystery, Alaska" ($3.1 million), delivered disappointing numbers.
