In what's being called a weekend upset, Jennifer Lopez' latest film, "Maid in Manhattan" edged out early favorite "Star Trek Nemesis" for the top spot at the box office. Sony/Revolution Studios' "Maid," which also stars Ralph Fiennes, nabbed an estimated $19 million at U.S. theaters over the weekend, while Paramount's "Nemesis" was a close second as it earned an estimated $18.8 million.

Executives at Sony were doubly upbeat this weekend as "Maid in Manhattan" launched in the top spot and box office revenue for the studio in 2002 crossed the $1.5 billion mark. "We were hoping for a number this good, but to be No. 1 as well is certainly a thrill," said Jeff Blake, president of worldwide marketing and distribution at Columbia Pictures.

"To me it's the perfect holiday movie," Revolution partner Tom Sherak said. "It resonates having fun, and I think the movie delivers on that."

Lopez's success is not restricted to the silver screen, as her latest Epic album, "This is Me ... Then," recently debuted at No. 6 on The Billboard 200. The set's lead single, "Jenny From the Block," is No. 3 on the Hot 100.
