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.
