Mr. Ferrell, on a hot streak with sports comedies, rides Blades of Glory to Number One on Friday with $12 million. Meet the Robinsons collects $7.7 million for a Number Two position...
And the Weinstein-Warner animated offering TMNT falls to #5 with a $31.8 million total.
Sunday Update: As predicted by the forecasts, MTR finished a solid second with $25 million for the weekend, behind the glorious Blades at $33 million. Compare that to TMNT's $24 million last weekend, and it looks like the new Disney flick did pretty decent in a tough weekend.
The turtle movie nabbed another $9.2 million for fourth, a 62% drop from last weekend (and yes, that's a big drop). If Robinsons holds up better than that next weekend, it could turn out to be a modest hit, though not any kind of blockbuster.
