Weekend Box Office

'Erin Brockovich' Holds Off 'Romeo'

March 28, 2000|ROBERT W. WELKOS

On a weekend when many moviegoers had Oscars on their minds, "Erin Brockovich" remained atop the box-office chart for the second consecutive week, grossing $18.5 million. The Julia Roberts human-interest saga barely beat out the martial-arts action film "Romeo Must Die," starring Jet Li, which debuted at $18 million.

Meanwhile, "The Sixth Sense" became the 10th all-time biggest-grossing film with $290,288,427, squeaking past "The Empire Strikes Back."
