‘10,000 BC’ wins weekend

Prehistoric adventure brings in $35.7 million

Prehistoric populations were big if not quite epic this weekend, as Warner’s “10,000 BC” grossed a solid $35.7 million.

Though some had thought the Rolland Emmerich-helmed f/x-fest could come in over $40 million, pic ended up right around where studio insiders said they were targeting. If pic holds well, it could end up topping $100 million domestically and it’s expected to do very well overseas.

Average was $10,478 per play at 3,410 theaters

Nobody had thought “10,000 BC” would come close to “300’s” $71 million bow on the same weekend last year.

Also performing decently was Disney’s “College Road Trip,” which opened to $14 million, or $5,174 per location at 2,706 playdates. Gross was just a little off from that off Martin Lawrence’s last pic, “Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins,” which bowed to $16.2 million last month.

Mouse House is expecting a particularly strong hold for the family film as spring breaks start around the country this week.

Lionsgate’s actioner “Bank Job,” bowed at a modest $5.7 million, right around where the studio had expected. Jason Stathan starrer, which was a negative pickup for the indie studio, averaged $3,561 at 1,603 theaters.

Focus opened “Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day” at 535 locations, where the comedy averaged $4,750 and grossed a total of $2.5 million.

New Line’s swan song “Semi-Pro” continued to foul out on its second weekend, falling a steep 62% to $5.8 million. Cume on the Will Ferrell starrer after 10 days is $24.7 million.

Sony’s “The Other Boleyn Girl” declined 51% on its second frame to $4 million, bringing cume on the period sudser to $14.6 million.

On the limited front, Warner Independent bowed the David Gordon Green-helmed drama “Snow Angels” to $14,000 at two theaters in Gotham.

Sony Pictures Classics opened crime drama “Married Life” on nine screens, where the Chris Cooper starrer averaged just $4,043, giving it a bow of $36,384. SPC’s Chinese import “CJ7” grossed $41,098 at 19 locations, making its opening weekend average $2,163.
