Weekend Estimates: Another Good Weekend at the Movies

February 8th, 2009

Once more, moviegoers defied predictions and visited movie theaters in big numbers this weekend. He's Just Not That Into You overcame mediocre reviews to top the weekend with an impressive $27.465 million, according to Warner Bros. Sunday estimate. Taken fell only 18% from its opening to score $20.3 million. Coraline also had a very strong debut with $16.3 million and clearly managed to find its audience in spite of being a challenge to market.

The Pink Panther 2 came fourth with $12 million, which is slightly more disappointing, but still OK for a movie that has received terrible reviews. Push was a little further back with $10.2 million, which again will not disappoint Summit too much.

Limited release Fanboys earned $164,000 in 44 theaters and, after months of controversy, looks as though it will have a relatively short theatrical life.
