The Slovenia Times

Epics and fairytales



According to statistics released by Kolosej cinemas, which presented 147 films in 2004, Slovenians prefer epic spectaculars and animal comic strip characters to superheroes. Compared to the box-office results of the country that produced the majority of these movies, Shrek 2, which topped the list in the USA, barely made it into the top 10 in Slovenia, while Spider-Man 2, the second most popular movie in America last year, could only manage to scramble into 18th place. The controversial The Passion of the Christ secured 8th place (3rd in the USA) just ahead of Fahrenheit 9/11 (17th in the USA). Ben Stiller was the most watched actor and featured in four of last year's films. Kolosej's 'Top 10' Box-Office Hits of 2004: 1. Troy 2. Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King 3. Garfield 4. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban 5. The Last Samurai 6. Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason 7. The Day After Tomorrow 8. The Passion of the Christ 9. Fahrenheit 9/11 10. Shrek 2
