Prom Night is the weekend’s #1 film with an expected $25.1 million tally by Sunday night. David Ayer‘s Street Kings will be a distant second with $12.4 million. Roberty Luketic’s 21, hanging in there, will be third with a projected $9,973,000. Nim’s Island will be fourth with $8,568,000, and poor Leatherheads, down over 50% from last weekend’s opening haul, will earn about $5,819,000 for a fifth-place showing.
Dr. Seuss’s Horton Hears a Who will be sixth with $5,792,000. Smart People will be seventh with $4,816,000 and $3700 a print …not good. The Ruins will be eighth with $3,139,000. Superhero Movie! will come in ninth with $3,069,000 and Drillbit Taylor — people are still actually saying to each other, “Hey, let’s go see Drillbit Taylor” — wil do about $2,095,000.
I didn’t get any numbers for The Visitor but Young @ Heart, which opened in four theatres, will do about $46,000 at roughly $11.500 a print…not bad.
