Box Office: 'Brave' debuts strong while 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' doesn't exactly slay
Though "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" is in second place for Friday, it's debuting softer than expected and will probably slip to No. 3 before the weekend is over. With a $6.3 million Friday haul, it's set to bring in just $16 million on its first weekend in theaters. This may not bode well for the upcoming "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies."
In the No. 2 position will likely be "Madgascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted," now in its third weekend. Earlier this month, "Madagascar 3" debuted with a $60.3 million weekend; "Brave" is expected to top that with around $66.1 million this week.
