Michael Moore's anti-Bush documentary, "Fahrenheit 9/11," continued to do solid business in the No. 2 spot over the Fourth of July holiday weekend, bringing in an estimated $21 million Friday through Monday as Lions Gate Films almost doubled the number of theaters where the movie is playing, to 1,725 from 868.
With a per-theater average of $12,174 in its second weekend and an estimated cumulative gross of $60.1 million, it has become the No. 3 documentary of any kind and is gaining on the No. 2 spot currently held by the Imax-format "Everest." That film came out in 1998 and has taken in $87.2 million in the years since, according to figures supplied by its distributor, MacGillivray Freeman Films.
