'Training Day' No. 1 film again
LOS ANGELES -- Movie-goers preferred violent crime to the comedic variety as "Training Day" remained the No. 1 weekend film, edging the bank-robbery comedy "Bandits," which had a weak debut.
"Training Day," starring Denzel Washington as a corrupt narcotics detective, was the top film for the second straight weekend with $13.55 million.
"Bandits," featuring Bruce Willis, Billy Bob Thornton and Cate Blanchett, was No. 2 with $13.46 million.
"Corky Romano," a mob comedy starring "Saturday Night Live" regular Chris Kattan, opened in third place with $9.3 million. The weekend's other wide-release debut, the martial-arts adventure "Iron Monkey," was No. 6 with $6 million.
