RING KA-CHING!

Moviegoers couldn't take their eyes off of The Ring, as the death-by-videotape spooker debuted atop the box office with $15 million. Sweet Home Alabama was No. 2 with $9.6 million, followed by Red Dragon, which fell from first to third with $8.8 million. Rounding out the top five: My Big Fat Greek Wedding (No. 4 with $7.2 million) and Brown Sugar (No. 5 with $5.31 million). Audiences, meanwhile, deserted the new Katie Holmes thriller Abandon. The schlockfest grossed $5.3 million, bad enough for sixth place.
