Horse race at Friday B.O.

'Chronicle' edging 'Woman in Black' $8.7 mil to $8.3 mil

It is starting to look like football won’t be the only gripping competition this Superbowl weekend. Both Fox’s “Chronicle” and CBS Films’ “The Woman in Black” sat atop the domestic B.O. Friday.

Currently “Chronicle” is edging “Woman in Black” by a 4% margin, roughly $8.7 million to $8.3 million. Both films are now estimated to land in the $19 million to $21 million range, but because the drop off on Superbowl Sunday can vary appreciably, this frame is notoriously difficult to predict.

“Woman in Black” may claim the lead insiders predicted as 59% of its audience is female and 57% of its audience is under 25, a demographic least likely to be pulled away from theaters by the game, but it is too early and too close to say with certainty.

Open Road’s “The Grey” came in third with about $3.1 million, followed by Universal’s family fare “Big Miracle” with $2.3 million. Lionsgate’s “One for the Money” and Sony’s “Underworld Awakening” rounded out yesterday’s domestic B.O. tops, both with $1.7 million, bringing their cumes to $16.1 million and $50.5 million, respectively.
