Weekend Box Office Numbers (April 30-May 2, 2010): ‘Nightmare’ opens to strong $32.9M; Furry Vengeance ($6.6M) flops [UPDATED]

Update: Article and chart updated with final actual numbers.

A Nightmare on Elm Street opened to a solid $32.902 million, in line with expectations (even with horrible reviews–14% on Rotten Tomatoes) and similar to other horror remakes, although not as strong last last year’s Friday the 13th ($40.57M). How to Train Your Dragon slipped to second place with an estimated $10.614 million ($192.174M cume) and Date Night stayed in third with $7.577 million ($73.627M cume).

Looking at the daily numbers, ‘Nightmare’ will probably fade away fast. The film took in an estimated $15.835 million, but slid 33.3% on Saturday with $10.56 million and is projected to drop another 45% on Sunday to $5.81 million.

Furry Vengeance was the only other new release this week and the film flopped in fifth place with just $6.628 million. Rounding out the top five was The Back-Up Plan in fourth place ($7.256M / $22.963M cume). Another notable observation for the weekend is that Clash of the Titans crossed the $150 million mark domestically ($153.911M cume). Click over the jump for the weekend chart.
