Box Office: SHUTTER ISLAND To Remain on Top This Weekend

Leonardo DiCaprio in Shutter Island

Shutter Island should remain at the top of the North American box office this weekend, according to Nikki Finke's report at Deadline.com. At 3,003 theaters, Martin Scorsese's dark thriller starring Leonardo DiCaprio earned approximately $6.7 million on Friday. The preliminary weekend estimate as reported by Finke is $21 million. Those figures — and all others listed below — should change somewhat by Sunday morning, when the studio's official weekend estimates will be released.

At #2, Kevin Smith's Cop Out, starring Bruce Willis, earned an estimated $6.2 million on Friday and should reach $18.5 million for the weekend, followed by the well-received horror flick The Crazies with $5.7 million and $15 million for the weekend. At #4, James Cameron's Avatar took in about $2.9 million on Friday and should gross $12.5 million over the weekend — thus passing the $700 million mark at the domestic box office.

Garry Marshall's Valentine's Day is the #5 movie, with $2.8 million on Friday and an estimated $8.8 million for the weekend. Total by Sunday night: Approximately $100 million.
