Haven't seen it yet, so I'm avoiding spoilers, but I just thought I'd mention that District 9
was #1 at the box office on its opening day. Early estimates have it taking in $14,185,000
on Friday, far more than the other major release of the week, The Time Traveler's Wife
. It also made almost twice as much as last week's champ, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
, despite the fact that Joe
has nearly a thousand more locations than District 9
Considering the film's $30 million price-tag, that's pretty impressive. I will concur with Doggeh
and say that it will easily make back its budget this weekend.
