Friday Box Office – NO STRINGS ATTACHED Debuts in First with $7.3 Million

     January 22, 2011


Being the only major wide release of the week has its benefits.  Despite the recent radioactivity of the romantic-comedy genre, No Strings Attached managed a first place debut on Friday with an estimated $7.3 million from its 3,018 locations.  Considering that that estimate is nearly equivalent to the first weekend total of the box office’s last romantic comedy release – Sony’s How Do You KnowNo Strings Attached is looking like a winner for Paramount.  The weekend projection for the film is now about $18 million, meaning it is poised to top The Green Hornet for the weekend crown.  Last weekend’s big winner fell to number two on Friday with $5.1 million for an eight day total of $50.4 million.  Full details on the weekend box office tomorrow.

Title Friday Total
1 No Strings Attached $7,300,000 $7.3
2 The Green Hornet $5,100,000 $50.4
3 The Dilemma $3,000,000 $26.6
4 The King’s Speech $2,100,000 $51.5
5 True Grit $2,000,000 $132.6
