Something For Everybody At Box Office

Moviegoers, attracted by a variety of new films, including superhero action fare, fantasy kids flicks, comedy, and a spy thriller, flooded the box office in record numbers over the President's Day holiday. When the dust settled, the Marvel Comics superhero Ghost Rider was sitting at the top of the heap with $52.02 million, more than any film had ever earned over the holiday.
