MOULIN ROUGE WILD IN AUSTRALIA

   Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge, starring Nicole Kidman, is breaking box-office records in Australia, where it was not only filmed but which is also the birthplace of the director and star. It shattered the opening weekend record set by Crocodile Dundee II in 1987. In its second week, playing in only one theater in New York and Los Angeles, the film earned a sensational $254,098.


SHREK THE BIGGEST WINNER

   Some analysts suggested that even more remarkable than the performance of "Pearl Harbor's" opening weekend was the second-week showing of DreamWorks' "Shrek," which took in an estimated $54.2 million -- and may even have filled about the same number of seats as Pearl, given the half-price kids' tickets that were sold for the film.
   The movie grossed $110.7 million in its first two weeks and seems certain to pass the $200-million domestic mark.
   Entertainment analyst Art Rockwell told Bloomberg News that the box office results for the computer-animated movie have been a big surprise considering what the movie was up against. He called "Shrek's" performance " "Very impressive." DreamWorks distribution chief Jim Tharp called "Shrek's" performance "pretty phenomenal."
