Jumper

Jumper has leapt to an excellent $8.21M on Friday, and it should bound to a solid $34.47M for the Valentine’s Day through President’s Day 5-day box office frame. After finishing in a virtual dead heat with Disney’s Step Up to the Streets on Thursday, Doug Liman’s sci-fi adventure pic overwhelmed the competition on Friday. Meanwhile, Step Up 2 received a slight Thursday-to-Friday bump dancing to a $6.25M 2nd day. The low budget sequel to the 2006 surprise hit should reach $28.45M for the 5-day for an anticipated weekend-best PTA of $11,518 per location.

The Spiderwick Chronicles (Paramount), the well-reviewed family fantasy movie at over 3,800 locations, has recovered from a disappointing Thursday, collecting an estimated $4.75M on Friday. Directed by Mark Waters (Freaky Friday, Mean Girls), and checking in with a reported budget of $100M+, Spiderwick will have banked $25.35M or so by Monday night. That’s well short of the $28.53M that 2007′s Bridge to Terabithia (Disney) delivered in 4 days last President’s weekend.

Romantic comedy holdover Fool’s Gold (Warner Bros) out-paced Universal’s Definitely Maybe in the date movie chase on Friday $3.9M-$2.9M. The Matthew McConaughey/Kate Hudson flick should wind up the weekend with an estimated $18.75M for a new cume of $45.3M. Definitely Maybe, starring Ryan Reynolds, will manage only a 5th-place finish with a disappointing $14.4M over the 5 day period.

In Bruge (Focus) is proving to be a potent specialty film, expanding to 112 locations while maintaining a $2,377 PTA Friday. The Colin Farrell/Ralph Fiennes black comedy is headed for a $1.24M 5-day and a likely $11,000+ PTA.

Among other specialty releases, George A. Romero’s Diary of the Dead (Weinstein/MGM) had a so-so opening with $1,840 per on 42 screens. The genre film will scare up about $245,000 in its first 4 days of release.
