'300' Makes $70 Million in Opening Weekend, Sets New Record
The graphic novel adaptation, which captures the blood and gore of a battle between the ancient Spartans and the armies of Persian king Xerxes, made $2 million more than the previous March record holder, Ice Age 2: The Meltdown.
The film also claims the third-highest opening for an R-rated movie, behind The Matrix Reloaded and The Passion Of The Christ.
Meanwhile, John Travolta's biker buddy movie Wild Hogs slipped to second place and children's movie Bridge To Terabithia climbed to three. "300" was the only new entry in the top 10.
