    The hype behind Scooby-Doo has built up to a gigantic opening, making this the most successful Freddie Prinze Jr. movie of all time!

    <img src="http://news.toonzone.net/images/scoobydoomovieposter.jpg" align="right">According to early box office estimates, Scooby-Doo has pulled in an estimated $56,420,000 at the box office, easily giving it the top spot in the top ten. The movie, starring Matthew Lillard, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Freddie Prinze Jr., Linda Cardellini, and Rowan Atkinson, had an extension campaign on both Cartoon Network and Kids'WB!. Both channels currently air reruns of the classic Scooby Doo series. Here is box office estimates for this weekend:

    <b>1. Scooby-Doo - $56,420,000 ($56.4 million)</b>
    2. The Bourne Identity - $27, 501, 000 ($27.5 mill)
    3. Windtalkers - $14,500,000 ($14.5 mill)
    4. The Sum of all Fears - $13,500,000 ($84.5 mill)
    5. Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood - $9,800,000 ($35 mill)
    6. Star Wars Episode 2: Attack of the Clones - $9,200,000 ($270.5 mill)
    7. Spider-Man - $7,400,000 ($382.4 mill)
    8. Bad Company - $6,100,000 ($21.8 mill)
    9. Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron - $5,500,000 ($63.8 mill)
    10. Undercover Brother - $4,635,000 ($31.6 mill)

    Box office analysts predicted that Scooby-Doo would fall short of a $40 million opening, around $36 - 38 million. Much like Spider-Man, this movie exceeded all expectations. With mixed/positives reviews coming in, the movie should have no problem grossing $100 million within the next few weeks, and will likely top off at $150 million.

    A DVD/VHS Release date has already been set, although not officialized by Warner Bros., for October 15th, 2002. The release date, of course, is subject to change.
