This year's top film so far - German blockbuster (T)Raumschiff Surprise - Periode 1 - mayhave clocked up over 1,000 more admissions than King Arthur but had to contend with second place based onbox-office takings. Six weeks into release for Constantin Film, the film parodyis still showing on 937 screens and has taken over $57m.

There was some shuffling around in the top 10 with thearrival of three strong new entries: Warner Bros.' The Butterfly Effect with the weekend's top screen average of $4,895, UIP's high school comedy MeanGirls with $ 4,422, and Warner Bros'. release of the Japanese animationfilm Yu-Gi-Oh with a screen averageof $ 2,796.
