Update: This is the best domestic opening day ever for an R-rated horror-slasher pic. Update #2: The latest estimate brings Friday in with $45m over the four day weekend. I know many of you are sick of hearing about Jason Voorhees at this point, but come on, even if you didn’t like the movie, it’s still pretty awesome getting to see him on his feet again slaying at Camp Crystal Lake. This morning we just got our hands on the official “projected” box office numbers for this holiday weekend and was floored. According to reports, New Line Cinema’s Friday the 13th reboot is set to make nearly $20m on Friday alone and estimated to bring in $60m over the four day holiday weekend. This has to be one of (if not the) biggest horror openings of all-time. You can read on for the box office report and don’t forget to write your own review of the film in our user review section of the film, head to our forum and rank the F13 films and read all of our 13 Days of Jason. It’s pretty safe to say a sequel is on its way.
