UPDATED: 'J. Edgar' Grabs $46K on Thursday

on November 11, 2011


Friday Morning: Warner Bros. is estimating that J. Edgar added another $46,000 from seven locations on Thursday, giving it a two-day total of $98,645.

UPDATE #2: The $58,587 gross that came out earlier today was incorrectly reported by WB. The official Wednesday gross is $52,645.

Warner Bros. is now reporting that J. Edgar made $58,587 on Wednesday.

Thursday Morning: J. Edgar is off to a promising start at seven locations in New York, Los Angeles and D.C. Warner Bros. estimates that the biopic managed $53,000 on its first day of release. Clint Eastwood's latest will expand to more than 1,900 locations this Friday.

A rush of negative reviews will surely hurt J. Edgar's chances at the box office this weekend. Boxoffice.com's own James Rocchi wrote that, "... J. Edgar represents a low point no Eastwood aficionado can ignore."

We're currently predicting a $12.5 million opening weekend.
