Jennifer Lopez will continue her reign at the top of the movie world for another week, before "Hannibal" is expected to eat her up.
"The Wedding Planner," which stars the sultry singer/actress, is the #1 movie in the United States for a second consecutive weekend, according to studio estimates issued on Sunday. The romantic comedy pulled in $11 million, taking its 10-day total to $28.2 million, about equal to the film's production budget, according to Reuters.
Lopez is also atop the music world, as her second album, J.Lo, debuted at #1 on Billboard's 200 albums chart last week. The album is also #1 in Canada and Germany, and in the top five in Australia, Britain and Italy.
Lopez is the first person ever to top both the movie and music charts in the United States at the same time (see [article id="1438908"]"J.Lo Debuts At #1; O-Town, Dream Close Behind"[/article]).
"The Wedding Planner," in which Lopez falls in love with the fiancé (played by Matthew McConaughey) of one of her clients, has received lackluster reviews but has faced little competition. The Denise Richards horror flick "Valentine" debuted at #2 over the weekend.
However, "Hannibal," the long-awaited follow-up to 1991's Oscar-winning "Silence of the Lambs," opens Friday and is expected to debut at #1.
