HELLBOY OVERPOWERS HANCo*k IN US
« on: July 14, 2008, 02:55:07 PM »
Hellboy II: The Golden Army has become the latest superhero movie to top the North American box office chart.

The movie, which sees the return of actor Ron Perlman as the red-skinned hero, took $35.9m (?18.1m) on its opening weekend.

It nudged fellow superhero film HanCo*k into second place with $33m (?16.6m).

Opening at number three with $20.6m (?10.4m) was 3D adventure Journey to the Center of the Earth - the latest adaptation of Jules Verne's novel.

Mexican-born director Guillermo del Toro returned to direct the Hellboy sequel.

The original Hellboy movie also topped the North American box office in 2004 and went on to enjoy strong DVD sales.

Paul Dergarabedian, president of box office analysts Media By Numbers, said del Toro's acclaimed fantasy Pan's Labyrinth - which won three Oscars and three Baftas in 2007 - had "made a big impression on a lot of people".

"If they weren't fans of Guillermo del Toro before, they certainly are now," he added.

Disney animation Wall-E, the tale of a trash-compacting robot with a heart of gold, fell from number two to number four.

Wanted, starring James McAvoy and Angelina Jolie as members of a fraternity of assassins, fell from number three to number five.

Eddie Murphy's Meet Dave - a comedy about mini aliens operating a human - took just $5.3m (?2.7m) to make its debut in seventh place on its opening weekend.
