“Footloose” wins Friday in weekend box-office battle

By Sean O’Connell Early indication says Craig Brewer’s “Footloose” remake is going to dance to the head of the weekend box office when actuals are revealed Monday night.

The dance drama, which stars Kenny Wormald in the role that helped make Kevin Bacon famous, earned an estimated $5.6 million Friday night, THR reports. That puts it on track for a possible $12-$13M weekend.

“Footloose” was outperforming Universal’s remake of “The Thing,’ which took in an estimated $3.2M on Friday. Both were outpacing “The Big Year,” a comedy with Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson. A virtual lack of marketing meant “Big Year” earned a little bit of money — $1.2M on Friday evening.

THR says Hugh Jackman’s “Real Steel” has a grip on second place. It earned an estimated $4.5M on Friday, and could end up with $15 million on the weekend.
