Jean-Jacques Annaud's tiger tale Two Brothers remains in the top spot this week with a mere 17% drop off from its first week. Along with the number two film Les Choristes - which jumped 4% on last week and whose soundtrack is selling on a par with that of 2001 blockbuster Amelie - strong screen averages are giving Pathe something to smile about.
The Scooby-Doo sequel jumped up a slot to number 3 while the Passion Of The Christ fell to fourth position after almost crossing the $10 million mark in its third week out. Europa Corp.'s strong starter Ong-Bak, however, fell off by 41% in its second week out to land at number 6.
New films included Johnny Depp vehicle Secret Window which opened to almost 300,000 admissions, Spy Kids 3 in 7th place, Le Convoyeur - a StudioCanal film that drew an impressive $9,236 per screen on only 160 copies - Cheaper By The Dozen at number 9, Oscar winner Monster in 10th place and South Korean film Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter' Spring at the bottom of the pack at 19.
Films which had performed strongly in their first week or weeks of release like Agents Secrets, Immortel (Ad Vitam) and L'Incruste lost roughly 50% of their audiences, although Japanese film Kiki's Delivery Service remained stable in its third week.
