Weekend Box Office -- Friday Estimates
Well, as I predicted, Jim Carrey's "The Number 23" did even worse than everyone expected. Based on the Friday numbers, it should open at around $15 million, according to Box Office Prophets. "Ghost Rider," as just about everyone predicted, fell mightily from its opening week, about 65% to be exact. And while Bridge to Terabithia had a decent second weekend of $13 mil and a very good total gross of $42 mil, I was hoping the word of mouth would be even better for one of the best reviewed movies of the year so far and a fine family film. Maybe it will show legs its third weekend.
