LOS ANGELES T — LOS ANGELES -- "The Lawnmower Man" revved high in its opening box-office weekend, but not high enough to cut the lead of the nation's No. 1 hit, "Wayne's World."
For the fourth week in a row, the "Saturday Night Live" spinoff held onto the movie chart top spot, even with competition from two new entries aimed at its same youthful audience.
"Wayne" earned about $8.4 million over the weekend, which brought its monthlong total gross to an excellent $57 million.
"Lawnmower Man," the highly touted Stephen King shocker, opened a respectable second with $7.8 million. But "Gladiator," the punch-drunk teen boxing melodrama, looked like a loser in its sixth place, $3.3 million bow.
