Sucker Punch Battled for Top Spot Friday
The battle for the top Friday movie at the box office was like watching a WWE match with Sucker Punch knocking out the competition at the final count of the night. Zack Snyder’s film earned about $8 million. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Roderick Rules, a more kid-friendly movie, earned about $7.3 million. I am guessing that Wimpy Kid will take the weekend box office because of the audience demographics dominate more.
Last week’s winner Limitless collected about $4.7 million while The Lincoln Lawyer took in about $3 million. Good old Rango rounds out the top five and earned about $2.4 million.
Paul hangs out at number six with about $2.3 million, and the other alien movie, Battle: Los Angeles, took in about $2.2 million.
At number eight and nine are The Adjustment Bureau and Red Riding Hood earning about $1.3 million. The Adjustment Bureau beats Red Riding Hood because it averaged more per theater.
Finishing up the top ten was Disney’s 3D movie Mars Needs Moms, which earned about $525,000.
