Only three of last week's eight new releases made it into the weekend box office top ten, the most popular of them being a French comedy Tais Toi, directed by Francis Veber and starring Jean Reno and Gérard Depardieu.

Last week's surprise disappointment was Gary Ross' Seabiscuit which failed to impress Hungarian audiences just like The Russian Ark or Baltasar Kormákur's The Sea.

Watching its progress after a spectacular opening weekend, the third LOTR installment, The Return Of The King is likely to break all known records at the Hungarian box office and to continue ruling the chart for several weeks to come.
