Talk about over/under. Friday the 13th debuted much higher than expected with a record setting $42 million dollars between Friday and Sunday. The film only cost $16 million to produce, which was recouped by the end of business Friday.
Coming in at number 2 is He's Just Not That Into You with just under $20 million dollars. Coming in third place was the extremely durable Taken. Debuting in fourth, under the expectations I gave, was Confessions of a Shopaholic at $15 million. That was barely ahead of last weekend's Coraline.
The International debuted in seventh place with an expected $10 million.
