Burlesque danced and sang in third place, with an estimated $2.8 million followed by another 3D toon holdover Megamind, which took in about $2.7 million. In fourth place is Love and Other Drugs, with an estimated $2.5 million ahead of Unstoppable with $1.9 million and then Faster, an opener, raced at sixth place, grossing $1.6 million.
The domestic box office should slow down today, but will pick up Friday and continue to draw the bucks through Sunday.
