Looks like that big Super Bowl buy paid off for Relativity, whose Act of Valor easily captured Friday’s top spot. From its launch in 3,039 locations, the R-rated Navy Seals’ drama earned an estimated $9 million – indicating a weekend in excess of $25 million. Tyler Perry’s Good Deeds took second on Friday with $5.4 million from 2,132 venues.  At this point the romantic-drama is tracking under the $20 million that has become standard for the filmmaker. I was personally expecting more from Good Deeds (especially after Perry’s much-lauded eulogy for Whitney Houston last Saturday), but it looks like the film will end its first three days with around $18 million, or the low end of recent Perry projects. Speaking of lows, the comedy Wanderlust is poised to set the nadir for a Judd Apatow-produced feature. From its launch in 2,002 locations, the Universal comedy earned just $2.2 million on Friday in eighth place, and is expected to gross around $7.5 million by Sunday – less than Drillbit Taylor, in other words. Things look even bleaker for the Summit thriller Gone, however, which debuted in ninth place with $1.7 million for a projected weekend of $5.5 million.  Full details and analysis tomorrow.

Title Friday Total
1 Act of Valor $9,000,000 $9
2 Good Deeds $5,400,000 $5.4
3 The Vow $3,300,000 $96.3
4 Journey 2 $3,200,000 $66.4
5 Safe House $3,100,000 $89.7

      correction: you mean the greatest government propaganda film of all time.

        It’s sad, that any film that tries to honestly portray the job our military are asked to do on a daily basis is immediately dubbed “propaganda.”

      How is serving your country by putting your life on the line idiotic, you should be glad those “idiot Americans” saved the world TWICE over in the two world wars – if they hadn’t, the world would be very different today, and not for the better… GO U.S.A. (and this is coming from an Irish guy)!

        hi Irish stupid idiot, so Americans saved twice ?? huh ? do u know any thing about WW2?? Americans only bombed a 2 nukes and killed 1000s of innocent Japanese people. so thats how they saved the world ??
        the turning point of the WW2 was “Battle of Stalingrad” millions of Red Army soldiers sacrificed their life on that battle and ultimately became the main WW2 offensive to Berlin .. so study little history next time redneck Irish dumbfuck !!
