Friday Box Office – SUCKER PUNCH Leads with $8 Million; DIARY OF A WIMPY KID 2 a Close Second

     March 26, 2011


In what turned out to be a closer race than many expected, the highly-hyped fanboy fantasy flick Sucker Punch placed first on Friday, besting  Fox’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules by less than one million dollars.  Zack Snyder’s latest feature claimed an estimated $8 million from 3,033 locations. With 2011’s box office record in mind, that is a decent start – especially as tracking put the film neck and neck or even slightly behind its Wimpy competition until early this morning.  Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2 earned $7.3 million from 3,167 locations and with strong Saturday figures could easily pass Sucker Punch by the time weekend estimates are released.  Both features are expected to bring in $20 million by Sunday, leaving no clear front runner in the weekend race at this point.  Details and analysis tomorrow.

Title Friday Total
1 Sucker Punch $8,000,000 $8
2 Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2 $7,300,000 $7.3
3 Limitless $4,700,000 $30.7
4 The Lincoln Lawyer $3,000,000 $20.9
5 Rango $2,400,000 $98.9
