Just Go With It took a big post-Valentine's day hit, but still led the way on Tuesday.

Just Go With It’ Leads Tuesday with $2.34 Million

on February 16, 2011 by Daniel Garris

Sony's Just Go With It topped the box office on Tuesday with $2.34 million. The romantic comedy starring Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston has now led the daily box office for four consecutive days. Just Go With It fell a sharp 61 percent from Monday's performance (which was obviously greatly inflated by the Valentine's Day holiday). Just Go With It has grossed $38.90 million through five days of release. While that is a bit soft by Sandler's lofty standards, the film should hold up well over the upcoming holiday weekend. Just Go With It is currently running 27 percent behind the pace of 2005's Hitch and 18 percent behind 2004's 50 First Dates.

Justin Bieber: Never Say Never was up one spot from Monday to take second on Tuesday with $1.069 million. Paramount's 3D concert documentary topped Disney's Gnomeo and Juliet by an especially slim $850 for the day. Never Say Never was down 39 percent from Monday. That represented one of the day's better daily holds among wide releases, as the film didn't see much of a boost from Valentine's Day. Never Say Never has grossed $33.08 million through five days of release, placing it 11 percent behind the pace of 2008's Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour.

Gnomeo and Juliet was down one spot to finish in third with $1.068 million. The 3D computer animated film was down 61 percent from Monday, as it clearly was a strong Valentine's Day option for moviegoers. Thanks in part to its Valentine's Day appeal, Gnomeo and Juliet has greatly exceeded expectations thus far with a five-day start of $29.13 million. The film will clear the $30 million mark either today or tomorrow and should up extremely well over the holiday weekend. Gnomeo and Juliet is currently running 56 percent ahead of the pace of 2009's Coraline.

The King's speech was up two spots from Monday to place in fourth with $0.688 million. The Best Picture nominee from The Weinstein Company was down 37 percent from Monday and down just 14 percent from last Tuesday. The King's Speech has grossed $95.46 million to date, leaving it only $4.54 million away from reaching the $100 million milestone.

The Eagle was up two spots to round out Tuesday's top five with $0.684 million. The Channing Tatum vehicle from Focus was down 37 percent from Monday. The Eagle crossed the $10 million mark yesterday and has now grossed $10.45 million in five days. The film is currently running 15 percent behind the pace of 2009's Fighting.
