Spears has surprise wedding

Pop singer Britney Spears married her fiance, dancer Kevin Federline, in a surprise ceremony, her record label said Sunday.

"She did marry him yesterday," Jive Records spokeswoman Sonia Muckle said. She declined to provide further details.

The wedding was held Saturday evening at a private home in the Studio City area with 20 to 30 people attending, Entertainment Tonight said on its Web site.

Nicole King, a spokeswoman for BWR Public Relations, which represents Spears, did not return a message seeking comment.

Spears, 22, and Federline, 26, announced their engagement in June after dating since early this year.

It was the second marriage in nine months for Spears.

In January, she married childhood friend Jason Alexander in a surprise wedding in Las Vegas. That marriage was annulled 55 hours later.

"Sky Captain' leads box office

The debut flight of Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow landed the No. 1 weekend box office spot with an estimated $16.2-million amid an overall lackluster turnout at theaters.

The film-noir-styled fantasy starring Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie cast its live actors against digitally animated giant robots on a backdrop of 1930s New York.

Two other debut films broke into the box office top 10.

Mr. 3000, a baseball comedy starring Bernie Mac, grabbed the No. 2 spot with a $9.2-million.

Wimbledon, a romantic comedy starring Kirsten Dunst as a rising tennis player who falls for a fading tennis star played by British actor Paul Bettany, grabbed the No. 4 spot with $7.8-million.
