Warner Family Dog Leads June Pack12 Jul, 2002 By: Jessica Wolf
A fraidy-cat pooch and his mystery-solving gang made No. 1 market share an easy grab for Warner in June.
Scooby-Doo's strong hold on the box office yielded $124 million for the studio, making up more than half of Warner's June dollars.
Twentieth Century Fox held its No. 2 spot from May, thanks to the Tom Cruise actioner Minority Report's $73.4 million and Star Wars: Episode II's monthly take of $74.9 million.
Universal's Matt Damon starrer The Bourne Identity was no slouch either, chipping in $72.9 million to help the studio to third place.
Sony scored fourth-place share thanks to Spider-Man's long, strong theatrical legs and a better-than-expected box office debut from Adam Sandler's latest, the comedy remake Mr. Deeds.
Record-breaking Spidey took in $56.4 million in June -- its second month in theaters -- to reach $396 million by June 30.
Mr. Deeds opened June 28 and garnered $37.2 million its opening weekend.
