Slashing expectations, Texas Chainsaw 3D topped the domestic B.O. Friday with $10.2 million. Variety reports that the Lionsgate scarer, projected to earn in the mid teens this frame, is now looking at a three-day haul more in the low-to-mid $20 million range.
The pic appears to be following a trajectory similar to Paramount’s The Devil Inside, which beat expectations when it earned $34 million this time last year, though Chainsaw won’t likely hit that height, says the site. Late night Thursday screenings contributed $1.2 million to Friday’s figure.
