The story links to BoxOfficeMojo.com who is reporting that Cloverfield has stomped the competition and was #1 on Friday:
1. CLOVERFIELD - $16,750,000
2. 27 DRESSES - $7,650,000
3. THE BUCKET LIST - $4,150,000
4. JUNO - $3,060,000
5. MAD MONEY - $2,300,000
Cloverfield made almost as much as the other top-5 combined!
Slashfilm is reporting that Cloverfield should "easily coast to ... the All-Time January 3-Day record and ... set a new record for the long [MLK holiday] weekend with an estimated $52M."
