Max Payne movie tops box office


Estimates for this week's box office have Max Payne (the movie) grossing $18 million during its opening weekend. Reuters reports that Marky Mark Mark Robert Michael Wahlberg's take on the (seemingly) constipated detective capped Beverly Hills Chihuahua, which slipped to the #2 spot with $11.2 million.

It appears director John Moore's fight for the film's PG-13 rating was well placed and he can laugh at all the critic's negative reviews while he counts his money. Wonder if this guarantees a Max Payne 2: Fall of Max Payne sequel?
