LL Cool J’s “S.W.A.T.” Tops Box Office

S.W.A.T., the movie

that stars rapper LL Cool J, was the hands down winner this weekend for box

office sales, raking in $37 million over the weekend.

The flick, which

is adapted from the hit 1970’s television show, also stars Samuel L. Jackson

and Colin Farrell as special weapons and tactic leaders in Los Angeles, assigned

to prevent the escape of a drug kingpin, who has offered a $100 million dollar

reward to anyone that can help him escape custody.

The second place

winner was another 1970’s remake, "Freaky Friday." That movie took

in $22.3 million over the weekend, bringing its total earnings to just over

$33 million since opening last Wednesday.

LL is presently

shooting "Slow Burn" in Montreal with Taye Diggs and Ray Liotta.
