This weekend, it was all about Frank Miller’s Sin City. Directed by Miller with Robert Rodriguez and his pal Quentin Tarantino, and starring Bruce Willis, Clive Owen and dozens more, the question this weekend was never whether it would be #1, but how much an R-rated black-and-white movie based on a little known comic book could make. In this case, it earned an estimated $28 million opening weekend, more than last year’s Hellboy, either of the two Kill Bill films or Rodriguez’s last movie. It averaged $8,706 in 3,230 theatres across the country.
