O.K. so it didn't hit the $16 million mark that was orginally projected on Friday, but still Jumping The Broom came in third, with just under $14 million, which is still an excellent opening for the very modestly budgeted $6 million rom-com.
As expected Thor came in No. 1 with $66 million, though some say that that's a disappointment, considering it was expected to do better; and Fast Five still had a bigger opening, with over $86 million. And speaking of Fast Five, that film came in second, and, to date, has made over $250 million worldwide, likely heading well past half a billion dollars, which means, Fast Ten, will be coming in a few years.
