After seven weeks at the top of the chart even Mikael Haafstroem's Evil had to step down to the Matrix Revolutions' massive 134 prints and impressive $8,441 screen average. However, since both Evil and the action-thriller The Third Wave are still out in 91 and 96 prints respectively, they are far from beaten and could return to the top again.
In the meantime this week's most impressive performer was Clint Eastwood's Mystic River, which moved from eight to fourth with a strong $7,090 screen average. Like Matrix it was released by Sandrew Metronome.
The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen all but dropped out of the top 10 from fourth, while last week's new release of Kjell-Aake Andersson's drama comedy Let's Play House (MammaPappaBarn) managed to climb one step up the chart to eight.
