Friday Report: ‘Sucker Punch’ Nabs Fleeting Lead

Posted on: March 27, 2011

Sucker Punch packed enough wallop to top Friday, but Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules was hot on its heels and will likely take the weekend with stronger Saturday and Sunday grosses, due to its kid appeal. Overall business was a bit down from the same Friday last year, when How to Train Your Dragon led.

Striking approximately 3,900 screens at 3,033 locations, Sucker Punch mustered an estimated $8.1 million, which was a tad more than Kick-Ass’s opening last Spring and much greater than Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. However, it was no match for the Kill Bill and Resident Evil movies among other comparable titles, and, for all its hype, it’s on track for an average opening for an action heroine movie. It was also director Zack Snyder’s worst live-action start yet, following Dawn of the Dead, 300 and Watchmen.
