Weekend Box Office Estimates (Feb. 12-14, 2010): Valentine’s Day A Big Draw With $56.4M, The Wolfman ($31.8M) and Percy Jackson ($31.4M) Both Solid

Update: Click here to see the weekend actuals.

Original article follows below.

Warner Brothers hit the jackpot with the perfectly scheduled Valentine’s Day, as the romantic comedy grossed an impressive estimated $56.405 million from 3,665 theaters.  Finishing in second place for the weekend was Universal Pictures’ The Wolfman with a solid $31.753 million from 3,222.  Unfortunately, the rumored price tag of $150 million makes this normally solid performance a bit on the disappointing side. The Wolfman finished just ahead of 20th Century Fox’s Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief which grossed an estimated $31.4 million from 3,356 theaters.

After falling from first place last weekend for the first time since release, Avatar finished in fourth place this weekend, but don’t worry, there’s nothing disappointing in that fall.  Despite shedding 315 theaters, the 3D epic grossed an estimated $23.5 million from 2,685 theaters which, which was actually up 2.8% from the weekend prior.  That pushes it to $661.13 million domestically and well on its way to $700 million, which is a definite lock (and it’s still exciting to see where it’ll ultimately end up).

Studios are projecting the 4-day weekend to go to Valentine’s Day with an estimated $66.855 million, while ‘Percy Jackson’ (estimated $38.75 million) is expected to pull ahead of The Wolfman (estimated $36.489 million). Head on over the jump to check out both the 3-day and 4-day weekend charts.

Box Office Numbers for Friday, February 12, 2010: Valentine’s Day ($14.6M), The Wolfman ($9.9M) and Percy Jackson ($9.8M) All Strong

Update: Article edited with Friday actuals chart.

Original article follows below.

Three films opened last night, and all three managed successful debuts. Leading the pack was WB’s Valentine’s Day with an estimated $14.625 million from 3,665 theaters. Second place was battled out between Universal’s The Wolfman — which overcame negative publicity and poor reviews for a very solid estimated $9.85 million from 3,222 theaters — and 20th Century Fox’s Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief which took third place with an estimated $9.775 million from 3,356 theaters.

Projecting out the rest of the weekend, Valentine’s Day should close the 3-day weekend with between $45-50 million, followed by Percy Jackson with $30-35 million and The Wolfman with $25-30 million. All three films should see strong business on the Monday holiday, with Valentine’s Day somewhere around $55-60 million for the 4-day, ‘Percy Jackson’ around $40-45 million and The Wolfman at around $35 million or so. Head on over the jump for more analysis and the daily chart.
