Friday Box Office – Shut Out. With $6.7 Million SHUTTER ISLAND Leads COP OUT and THE CRAZIES.

     February 27, 2010


Despite a seemingly unending string of promotional appearances by stars Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan over the past week, the $5.9 million collected by Warner Brothers’ Cop Out fell short of securing the number one spot on Friday’s box office estimates. That honor went to Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island instead, with an estimated $6.7 million earned on its second Friday in release. Things may have gone down differently if Kevin Smith had been able to leave the word “Dicks” in his film’s title, but I guess now we’ll never know. Though playing on 600 fewer screens than Cop Out, the horror remake of The Crazies also debuted with an estimated $5.9 million, which means that this could be the first weekend since last August to see three R-rated films leading the top ten. And yes, that’s about as exciting as we can expect on the last weekend of February. Full weekend box office results when you check back tomorrow.
