Footloose opened at the top of the charts this Friday with $5.6 million, but the remake will have to keep dancing its heart out to fend off last week’s champion Real Steel.  Both movies should land in the $15-18 million range for the weekend.  The revival of fellow beloved 80s property The Thing debuted in third place with a weaker $3.2 million.  Still better than this week’s other wide release, The Big Year, which earned just $1.15 million this Friday despite a trio of high profile leads in Steve Martin, Owen Wilson, and Jack Black.  Check back tomorrow for the weekend totals.

Title Friday Total
1 Footloose $5,565,000 $5.6
2 Real Steel $4,517,000 $40.0
3 The Thing $3,200,000 $3.2
4 The Ides of March $2,250,000 $16.9
5 Moneyball $1,715,000 $53.9
