Congratulations offered to DreamWorks/Disney, Hugh Jackman, Angry Films’ Don Murphy and Real Steel for more than doubling the weekend tally of George Clooney‘s The Ides of March (even though the latter is in 2199 theatres compared to Steel‘s 3440) and taking the weekend’s top slot with a projected $27 million.

Ides, far and away the better film, will end up at #2 with something like $11 million. I don’t want to know about the third-place Dolphin Tale, which will end up doing around $8.5 million by Sunday night for a $48 million tally. And it’s the third weekend for the fourth-place Moneyball, hangin’ in there with a projected/estimated $7 million or thereabouts and a cume of $48.7 million. (Figures from Deadline.)
