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.

Update: Article and chart updated with the final actual numbers.

The weak debuts of The Back-Up Plan (#2 – $12.2M) and The Losers (#4 – $9.4M) allowed for How to Train Your Dragon to win another weekend. The 3D feature grossed $15.35 million, pushing its domestic cume to a solid $178.346 million and its worldwide tally to an impressive $355.346 million. After opening more than 25% below Monsters vs. Aliens ($59.3M vs. $43.7M), ‘Dragon’ has surpassed ‘MvsA’ on a daily basis and will easily cross the $200M mark domestically.

The only other new release this week was the limited Oceans (which opened on Thursday) which grossed $6.059 million ($8.526M cume) for the weekend — #8 — from 1,206 theaters (for a top 10 best $5,024 per theater average). Rounding out the top five were Date Night in third place ($10.461M / $63.333M cume) and Kick-Ass in fifth place ($9.342M / $34.708M cume). Click over the jump for the weekend chart.

Box Office Estimates for Friday, April 23, 2010: Weak debuts for The Back-Up Plan (#1 / $4.2M) and The Losers (#4 / $3.2M)

The Back-Up Plan and The Losers both opened up to disappointing numbers on Friday. The Back-Up Plan grossed an estimated $4.2 million for first place, while The Losers opened in fourth place with an estimated $3.245 million. Neither film will take the top position this weekend, that honor will go to How to Train Your Dragon which grossed an estimated $3.44 million ($166.436M cume) and should be at around $15-16 million for the weekend.

Rounding out the top five were Date Night in third place with an estimated $3.3 million ($56.172M cume) and Kick-Ass in fifth place with an estimated $2.85 million ($28.216M cume). Oceans, which opened on Thursday, fell 17.1% to eighth place with an estimated $2.045 million ($4.512M). Click over the jump for the daily chart.

Box Office Numbers for Friday, April 16, 2010: Disappointing debut for Kick-Ass ($7.7M); Death at a Funeral 2nd ($5.55M), Date Night 3rd ($5.5M) [UPDATE]

Update: Click over the jump for an updated chart with the final actual numbers.

Kick-Ass took 1st place on Friday, but came in at below expectations with an opening day of an estimated $7.6 million from 3,065 theaters. That will put the film at about $18-20 million for the weekend, a fair amount below initial expectations of between a $25-30 million. No matter how strong its critical praise was — currently standing at a solid 77% on Rotten Tomatoes — the film wasn’t able to overcome Lionsgate’s horrible marketing campaign. Of course it’s possible strong word of mouth will improve its numbers over the coming days and weeks, but that’s no guarantee.

Finishing in 2nd place for the day was Sony’s Death at a Funeral with a so-so estimated $5.6 million from 2,459 theaters. Date Night had a strong hold from last weekend, taking in an estimated $5.465 million on Friday ($37.412M cume). Date Night will battle with Death at a Funeral for 2nd place for the weekend (with each finishing with between $16-17.5M).

Rounding out the top five was How to Train Your Dragon in 4th place with an estimated $4.4 million ($143.018M cume), edging out Clash of the Titans which finished in 5th place with an estimated $4.28 million ($121.495M cume). Click over the jump for the daily chart.
