"Friday the 13th" Gets Best Horror Opening

Posted: February 15th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Friday the 13th" Gets Best Horror OpeningSubmit Comment
The "Friday the 13th" reboot earned the best opening ever for a horror movie in grossing over $42 million from 3,105 theaters through Sunday. The new movie is on its way to posting the best four-day holiday gross ever for a R-rated pic.

The combo of Valentine's Day and the long President's Day weekend produced another record-breaking session for the domestic box office. Three-day grosses for the top 10 films were up a staggering 40% over last year.

It was especially prosperous for New Line and Warners, whose chick flick "He's Just Not That Into You" beat newcomer "Confessions of a Shopaholic" to come in No. 2. "Shopaholic" placed No. 4 for the three-day weekend, grossing an estimated $15.4 million from 2,507 theaters.

Sony's wasn't as lucky with adult thriller "The International," which debuted at No. 7 for the three days. Film grossed an estimated $10 million from 2,364 theaters. Studio expects the film to be a strong overseas performer.
