Friday $8.1M, Estimated Weekend $24.5M

2. Megamind 3D (DreamWorks Animation/Paramount) Week 2 [3,949 Theaters]
Friday $7.9M (-37%), Estimated Weekend $25.5M, Estimated Cume $85M

3. Due Date (Warner Bros) Week 2 [3,365 Theaters]
Friday $5.5M (-54%), Estimated Weekend $16.5M, Estimated Cume $60M

4. Skyline (Relativity/Universal) NEW [2,880 Theaters]
Friday $4.7M, Estimated Weekend $14M

*******************************************************

Great hold once again for Red. Both Halloween horror flicks are fading fast, and it looks like the PA series won the battle yet again. I wonder if a $14m weekend will be justification enough for a Skyline sequel? Solid #s for Unstoppable. I thought it looked lame as all hell, but reviews have been saying otherwise. Might have to check out a matinee sometime.

Interesting. They had Unstoppable on one screen at the theater I frequent, and a small one at that. Whereas Megamind had two of the large screens. FWIW, nothing that skewed more adult was given more than one screen. Guess the Holiday season is upon us.

Tyler Perry dropped hard this weekend. 72% drop in the 2nd week is summer blockbuster numbers. Glad to see Red doing good and Megamind might have legs enough to reach $150 million

While it's not my kind of movie, I wish Morning Glory had done better. Racheal McAdams deserves to be a star IMO, and needs to have a hit (with her as the lead, not a supporting character).

But if her movies continue to tank it might lead her to porn, which she has a perfect ass for. So I'm in favor of boycotting all her movies.

I really don't think Rachel McAdams has any acting range at all and her fame is about where it should be.

Looks like the movie goers are tired of movies like SKYLINE.
