According to BoxOffice.com's Early Weekend Estimates, The Green Hornet is on pace for $29.5 million from Friday-Sunday and $35.5 million from Friday-Monday. The unconventional superhero flick raked in an estimated $11.1 million on Friday night. This opening will be right in line with industry expectations. For star Seth Rogen, the debut ranks slightly behind two of his comedic efforts: Superbad with $33 million and Knocked Up with $30.7 million.
Combining the star power of Vince Vaughn and Kevin James isn't paying off for The Dilemma. The Ron Howard-directed comedy is set for $18 million from Friday-Sunday and $21.5 from Friday-Monday. The opening represents a steep drop from Vaughn's $34 million Couples Retreat debut and the $40.5 million opening of Grown Ups with James.
Other 4-day projections:
True Grit: $13.2 million
The King's Speech: $11.0 million
Black Swan: $10.2 million
