LOS ANGELES -- The nuclear terrorism thriller "The Sum of All Fears" continued to add up with moviegoers, taking in $19.2 million to remain the No. 1 film for a second weekend.
"Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood" opened in second place with $16.2 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.
"Bad Company," another film about a stray nuclear device, proved a bit of a bomb. It debuted in fourth place with just $11 million.
Rounding out the top five were the year's biggest hits. "Star Wars: Episode II -- Attack of the Clones," was No. 3 with $14 million, lifting its total to $255.1 million after 25 days.
"Spider-Man" came in fifth with $10.3 million for a 38-day total of $370.4 million.
The industry rebounded after last weekend, when the overall box office slumped for the first time in nearly four months.
Still, it was a relatively quiet weekend compared to most of May, when "Spider-Man" and "Attack of the Clones" drove up revenues by 50 percent or more each weekend.
"You get used to expecting record-breaking films every weekend, especially this summer. I think we're just in a lull," said Paul Dergarabedian, president of box office tracker Exhibitor Relations.
