Black Hawk Down Ridley Scott's acclaimed, fact-based military drama won its first big battle over the weekend. After playing in New York and Los Angeles for three weeks, the film expanded into wide release and captured the No. 1 spot at the box office, bringing in a record $29 million. It was the best Martin Luther King Day holiday weekend opening ever. Kiddie flick Snow Dogs starring Cuba Gooding Jr. opened at No. 2 with a surprisingly strong $17.5 million. Rounding out the top five was The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (No. 3 with $13 million), A Beautiful Mind (No. 4 with $11 million) and Orange County (No. 5 with $9 million).
