BOX OFFICE WAR
Black Hawk Down held on to the top spot at the weekend box office for the second consecutive week. The military drama grossed another $18.2 million; it has brought in $60.1 million since opening wide 10 days ago. At No. 2, Cuba Gooding Jr.'s family comedy Snow Dogs was in a virtual dead heat with Mandy Moore's critically forgotten teen weeper A Walk to Remember. Both pics grossed an estimated $13.6 million. Rounding out the top five: the new Richard Gere thriller The Mothman Prophecies (No. 4 with $11.8 million) and A Beautiful Mind (No. 5 with $11.7 million). In other debut news, The Count of Monte Cristo opened at No. 6 with a decent $11.5 million; the Sean Penn-Michelle Pfeiffer drama I Am Sam expanded to wider release and came in at No. 7 with $8.3 million; and the martial-arts spoof Kung Pow! Enter the Fist opened at No. 9 with $7.3 million.
