It looks like Roland Emmerich had at least one more catastrophic hit left in him. 2012, the latest paean to exploding landmarks from the director of Independence Day, brought in a whopping $23.7 million on its opening day on 3,404 screens. That’s the highest opening ever for Emmerich and it puts 2012 on track for a weekend total of over $55 million – a figure that the box office hasn’t seen since mid-July. Second place went to Disney’s A Christmas Carol, down a reasonable 38% with $5.5 million. And though estimates have The Men Who Stare at Goats barely edging out Lee Daniels’s Precious for Friday’s third place, the momentum is all on the side of the indie sensation. The drama doubled its total gross just one day after expanding into 175 theatres. Check back tomorrow for full details on these films plus news on the box office fate of new releases Pirate Radio and Wes Anderson’s The Fantastic Mr. Fox.

Title Friday Total
1 2012 $23,700,000 $23.7
2 A Christmas Carol $5,500,000 $46.5
3 The Men Who Stare at Goats $1,950,000 $19.2
4 Precious $1,940,000 $4.7
5 The Fourth Kind $1,800,000 $17.6

    The movie also made $36 million in foreign grosses Friday, putting it on track for a worldwide opening that could reach $170 million.That’s what I think this movie will earn in it’s first weekend .That’s a good number considering only 38% at rottten tomatoes and critics trashing it and fans loving it and no movie big stars in it .It’s on it’s way to become a major success like Roland Emmerich previous movies.As far as Disney’s A Christmas Carol is concerned I consider it to be flop if it doesn’t make it’s money back in the international market I don’t see A Christmas Carol making same as Watchmen domestically and internationally.
