Friday Box Office: Let's Give Footloose a Hand!


I'm squeaking and bopping like Deniece Williams, because the new Footloose is both critically hailed and a box office success. Kenny Wormald's big debut tops the Friday countdown, leading all newcomers by a significant margin -- especially the not-so-Big Year.

1. FOOTLOOSE $5,565,000

2. REAL STEEL $4,517,000 ($39,957,000)

3. THE THING $3,200,000

4. THE IDES OF MARCH $2,250,000 ($16,904,000)

5. MONEYBALL $1,715,000 ($53,927,000)

6. DOLPHIN TALE $1,675,000 ($54,002,000)

7. 50/50 $1,356,000 ($21,375,000)

8. THE BIG YEAR $1,150,000

    I saw _The Skin I Live In_ yesterday, and wow, that was pretty crazy. I'm glad I avoided reading much about the film and its source material, which normally I might not do but for some reason thought it a good idea with this movie. The audience seemed to be split. As the credits rolled, most of us were sitting in stunned silence; some people were laughing hysterically.
