Box Office: 'The Back-Up Plan' wins Friday, but will 'Dragon' slay for weekend title?
"Plan," opening domestically on 3,280 theaters, brought in an estimated $4.2 million on opening day. However, Paramount's "How to Train Your Dragon" (now in its fifth weekend) was close behind with about $3.7 million -- and matinees could help it take the weekend title.
Coming in next was Fox's Carrell-Fey comedy "Date Night," in its third week out, with $3.3 million.
Another new release this weekend, "The Losers," trailed slightly behind in fourth. The PG-13 flick starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Zoe Saldana and Chris Evans, brought in $3.2 million.
"Kick-Ass" box office numbers continue to shame its title, being anything but ass-kicking. In its second weekend, the Lionsgate film pulled in $2.9 million.
