'Just Go With It' Set to Win Weekend, 'Justin Bieber: Never Say Never' Not Far Behind

on February 12, 2011 by Phil Contrino

According to BoxOffice.com's Early Weekend Estimates, Just Go With It is on pace for a healthy $30.5 million during its debut frame. That represents an average opening for Adam Sandler, but it marks Jennifer Aniston's best opening since 2008's Marley & Me grabbed $36.4 million. Just Go With It's debut is likely being hindered a bit by the fact that Valentine's Day is on Monday and a lot of couples will go see the film then.

Justin Bieber: Never Say Never will fall short of topping the $31.1 million debut Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: The Best of Both Worlds Concert, but it's still off to a great start. Expectations were all over the place heading into the weekend. Look for the teen-skewing flick to be heavily front-loaded.

Disney's Gnomeo and Juliet is off to an excellent start. Family audiences were clearly hungry for something to see.

The Eagle will fall short of hitting even $10 million this weekend. Star Channing Tatum simply isn't able to carry a movie on his own yet.

Check back tomorrow for studio estimates.
