E! Online News - Hannibal's $58 Million Feast

This shows how desperate people are to see a half-decent movie. Hannibal Lecter is one of those iconic movie villains that will be a pop culture legend for decades to come, so it's not too surprising that this sequel is doing so well. But, still, it's not like 'Hannibal' had a lot of competition for box-office dollars on the weekend. 'Saving Silverman'? 'The Wedding Planner'? 'Valentine'? There are only a couple of good movies playing right now ('Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon', 'Traffic', 'Cast Away'), and everybody who wanted to see those flicks have seen them already. The other side to this is that there doesn't seem to be any hotly-anticipated movies on the horizon, so what else are moviegoers going to do? :)
