Just Go With It experienced some slowing on Wednesday, but continued to lead the way.

‘Just Go With It’ #1, ‘Black Swan’ Hits $100 Million

on February 17, 2011 by Daniel Garris

Just Go With It grossed $1.78 million on Wednesday to lead the daily box office for a fifth consecutive day. Sony's romantic comedy starring Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston was down 24 percent from Tuesday. That represented one of the day's weaker daily holds among wide releases (before yesterday the film had been holding up quite well since Saturday). With that said, Just Go With It topped the $40 million mark yesterday and is set to zoom past the $60 million mark by the end of the four-day holiday weekend. The film's six-day gross stands at $40.67 million, placing it 18 percent behind the pace of 2004's 50 First Dates.

Gnomeo and Juliet was up one spot from Tuesday to claim second place with $0.88 million. Disney's computer animated surprise hit was down 18 percent from Tuesday. Gnomeo and Juliet topped the $30 million mark yesterday and has grossed $30.01 million through six days of release. Presidents Day weekend is a strong frame for family holdovers, so the film should have no problem zooming past the $50 million mark by the end of the holiday frame. Gnomeo and Juliet is currently running an impressive 55 percent ahead of the pace of 2009's Coraline.

Paramount's Justin Bieber: Never Say Never was down one spot and 22 percent from Tuesday to finish in third with $0.83 million. The high-profile 3D documentary has grossed $33.91 million through six days of release, but is highly likely to take a tumble in its second weekend of release as a result of the rush out of Bieber's fanbase last weekend. Due in part to weaker midweek holds, Never Say Never is now running 15 percent behind the pace of 2008's Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour.

Black Swan grossed $174,098 on Wednesday and reached the $100 million domestic milestone in the process. Thanks to excellent word of mouth and continued Oscar buzz, the Best Picture nominee from Fox Searchlight has remained a consistent performer since it opened back on December 3rd. Black Swan has also been a strong performer internationally and has now totaled an impressive worldwide gross of $172.1 million.

The King's Speech is now just days away from also reaching the $100 million milestone. The Best Picture nominee from The Weinstein Company has grossed $96.07 million to date, leaving it $3.93 million away from $100 million. The King's Speech grossed $0.61 million on Wednesday, which was down 12 percent from Tuesday and kept the film in fourth place for the day.
