Weekend Box Office #183
Not much opening this weekend, in advance of next week's IRON MAN 2 juggernaut.
A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET (3332 theaters). I'm not sure why we need a remake of this movie, and apparently it's nothing special, though it'll probably do well enough. Figure $17.8 million for the weekend.
FURRY VENGEANCE (2997 theaters). This looks truly painful, though I suppose some undemanding 6-year-olds might be entertained. $13.3 million.
Last weekend, THE BACK-UP PLAN made $12.2 million, exactly what I predicted. Though really, not the movie I'd want to be perfect on.
I underestimated the other releases. THE LOSERS somehow made $9.4 million, and OCEANS made $6.1 million.
