'I KNOW' HOLDS ON TO BOX OFFICE LEAD

The teen-scream movie "I Know What You Did Last Summer" held on to the No. 1 spot at the box office -- earning $13.1 million -- during the weekend, while "Boogie Nights" stole the show in limited release, industry analysts said Sunday.

The movie about the pornography industry -- which opens this Friday in the Buffalo area -- was No. 12 with an estimated $1.9 million in receipts, but its $15,323 per-location average was nearly three times the $5,190 average for the weekend's top movie.

"Gattaca," the genetic thriller starring Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman, debuted in fifth place with $4.4 million.

The period children's film "Fairy Tale: A True Story," debuted in sixth place with $3.4 million.

And "A Life Less Ordinary," a black comedy starring Cameron Diaz, pulled in $2.1 million, making its debut in ninth place.

The final weekend box office figures will be released today.

The other top 10 films were:

"Devil's Advocate," $10.3 million.

"Kiss the Girls," $5.2 million.

"Seven Years in Tibet," $4.8 million.

"In & Out," $2.86 million.

"Soul Food," $2.2 million.

"L.A. Confidential," $2 million.
