Updated Friday Estimates: Audiences Avoid The Movies Over Labor Day

September 5, 2009

Early Friday numbers are in for the Labor Day frame, and it looks like audiences were certainly aware of how bad this weekend’s offerings were.  All About Steve could win the weekend, but with just $3.6 million on Friday, the horrible romantic comedy is headed to about $10.8 million over the three day, and $13 million over the four day.  Look for Inglorious Bastards and The Final Destination to reach similar grosses.  The number one spot is very much up for grabs.  Gamer did even worse, as it found a sad $3.3 million, which points the thriller towards an $9.5 million weekend, with $12 million over the long weekend.  The final new opener, Extract, was pretty much ignored.  It could only find $1.4 million on Friday.
