MTV and Paramount Pictures new interracial teen love story, Save the Last Dance, debuted at the top of the box office over the weekend with an estimated gross of $24 million, a record number for the MLK Day weekend. The dance-infused romantic drama starring Julia Stiles (10 Things I Hate About You) and Sean Patrick Thomas (Cruel Intentions) reportedly got a boost from young female audiences. Tom Hank's big-screen version of Survivor, Cast Away, drifted into second place after a chart-topping three weeks. Traffic, What Women Want and Kevin Costner's political thriller Thirteen Days rounded out the top five. Cyber-flop Antitrust, starring Ryan Phillippe and Tim Robbins, didn't even log in to the top 10.
