Fox's The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen (LXG) held onto the lead in Spain for a second week, despite a 55% drop-off from its debut weekend. New releases, launching on a smaller scale than LXG, were unable to trouble the action adventure, which has grossed Euros 6.9m and sold 1.4m tickets after 10 days.
LXG was trailed by BVI's action adventure Pirates Of The Caribbean. The film, which boasts a cumulative gross of Euros 18.3m and 4m admissions after five weekends, continues to play well on 343 screens. Pirates looks likely to overtake local hit Mortadelo & Filemon, The Big Adventure's top year-to-date ranking (Euros 21.5m).
New releases Down With Love (Fox), Identity (Col) and A Man Apart (Aurum) landed in the third, fourth and sixth spots, respectively. Down With Love has struggled to find an audience in many territories, including the US, but played well in Spain with a strong $3,542 average taken from 250 screens.
Meanwhile Sally Potter's The Man Who Cried, released in most international territories in 2001, launched for Lauren Films in 13th place. The drama, which stars Christina Ricci, Cate Blanchett and current box office gold-star Johnny Depp, sold 17,070 tickets at 83 screens.
Spanish film Two Tough Guys (Dos Tipos Duros) (pictured) held on to a position in the top 10 with a second weekend gross of Euros 161,545 on 100 screens.
