Moneyball won the pot on its second Friday with an estimated $3.9 million, though there is a good chance that either of September’s family hits, Dolphin Tale or The Lion King 3D will end up the weekend winner.  With Friday numbers, I usually like to give some indication of what Sunday’s top ten will look like but, today, I’m not sure that will be possible.  On top of the very close estimates between the holdover titles, there are four new releases in the mix: three of which are running well below their pre-release projections.  So far, What’s Your Number? is lagging 85% behind Anna Farris’ last comedy hit The House Bunny50/50 is doing half the business of 2009’s cancer comedy Funny People and the Universal thriller Dream House looks like a winner by sticking to its projected three-day opening of $8 million!  That leaves Courageous.  Haven’t heard of it?  The Christian drama has come out strong, with a debut of $3.1 million and a projected weekend that should nearly double its studio’s expectations of $5 million.  Details tomorrow.

  Title Friday Total
1 Moneyball $3,900,000 $29.8
2 Dolphin Tale $3,500,000 $26.7
3 The Lion King 3D $3,300,000 $71.8
4 Courageous $3,100,000 $3.1
5 50/50 $2,900,000 $2.9
6 Dream House $2,900,000 $2.9
7 What’s Your Number $2,100,000 $2.1

    Bunraku and Margaret should have been released years ago and it is a disgrace that not only have they been needlessly delayed but they are both only getting a limited release. They both have stellar casts (Bunraku – Josh Hartnett, Ron Perlman, Demi Moore, Woody Harrelson) (Margaret – Anna Paquin, Matt Damon, Mark Ruffalo, Matthew Broderick, Allison Janney, Jean Reno) and shouldn’t go unnoticed by the public when they finally come out.
