UPI News Service, 09/11/2005
"The Exorcism of Emily Rose" was the U.S. box-office champion this weekend, opening with an estimated $30.2 million.
That figure was well above industry expectations, Daily Variety reported, and gave the thriller the third biggest opening ever in the month of September. "Sweet Home Alabama" opened with $35.6 million in 2002 and "Rush Hour" took in $33 million in 1998.
