“Underworld” leads the weekend box office after Friday


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The fourth “Underworld” leads the weekend box office now that Friday’s estimates have rolled in. The sequel, which stars Kate Beckinsale as the hunter Selene, earned an estimated $9.4 million to top the expected box office Top 10, according to THR.

“Red Tails,” Anthony Hemingway’s historical take on the struggles and triumphs of the Tuskegee Airmen, did better than expected by pulling in $6M on Friday. The George Lucas-produced drama could be looking at a $17M weekend, and word of mouth could help it for the next few weeks. THR says it received an “A” from CinemaScore.

Elsewhere, Stephen Daldry’s “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” expanded to 2,500+ theaters this weekend, hoping to build on its Oscar buzz ahead of Tuesday’s nominations. The drama, which uses 9/11 as a narrative point, stars Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock and CCMA-winner Thomas Horn as a special needs boy coping with the loss of his father in the wake of our national tragedy.

“Loud” nabbed $3.2M on Friday, eyeing a $10M opening.

That’s better than Steven Soderbergh’s “Haywire,” which opened to $2.9M on Friday but earned a “D+” from CinemaScore. What the what?!
