There's no casting audiences away from the multiplexes this weekend.
In the New Year's holiday weekend that saw no new wide releases, Tom Hanks' "Survivor"-esque epic "Cast Away" held on to the top spot at the box office this weekend as expected with an estimated $31.1 million, hurling the film over the $100 million mark in only its second week of release, according to estimates from box office tracking firm Exhibitor Relations.
Rounding out the Top Five: Sandra Bullock's "Miss Congeniality" moved up two slots from last week to No. 3 with $15.4 million; Nicolas Cage's "The Family Man" dropped one slot from last week to No. 4 with $14 million; and "The Emperor's New Groove" took the fifth spot with $11.8 million.
Elsewhere on the chart, Ang Lee's "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" continued to wow audiences as the film gradually opens in more areas. The film took in an estimated $3.5 million over the weekend, and its total is $12.4 million so far.
Steven Soderbergh's much-hyped new film "Traffic" -- which opened Wednesday in only Los Angeles and New York to qualify for the Oscars -- pulled in a huge $303,588 total on only four screens.
