Box Office Report: 'Footloose' Eyes Weekend Win With $16 to $17 Million

Pamela McClintock Paramount’s remake tops Friday with $5.6 million; horror prequel “The Thing” off to so-so start with $3.2 mil, while the Steve Martin-Jack Black-Owen Wilson comedy “The Big Year” only grosses $1.2 more

Senh: I'm surprised the "Footloose" remake is doing so well. If anything, I thought the "Conan the Barbarian" remake would do better. The Big Year is a big bomb. With Steve Martin, Jack Black, and Owen Wilson, it only managed a measely $1.2M. "The Thing" ages pretty well, so I really don't see a need for a remake - even with today's better special effects. The practical effects work held up pretty well. "Real Steel," being a family film, might still be able to climb to the number #1 slot because it'll have a significant boost on Saturday.
