Director MICHAEL MOORE is celebrating after learning his film FAHRENHEIT 9/11 actually took in $2.1 million (GBP1.1 million) more than was previously believed on its opening weekend across America and Canada.

According to a final tally of weekend receipts, Moore's critique of US President GEORGE W BUSH and his policies since the 11 September (01) attacks on America grossed $23.9 million (GBP13.2 million) during its first three days of release.

The gross further secured the controversial film's top position at the box office and surpassed the $21.5 million (GBP11.9 million) generated by Moore's previous film, the OSCAR-winning BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE, as the highest-grossing documentary ever.

All told, the movie's total stood at just over $24 million (GBP3.3 million) counting the head-start it received on Wednesday (23JUN04) in two New York theatres, generating extra media buzz before expanding to a relatively modest 868 theatres two days later.

Previous tallies reported on Sunday (27JUN04) had Moore's film grossing $21.8 million (GBP12.1 million) since Friday (25JUN04).
