Newcomer “Thor” led the Friday (May 6) box office with $25.7 million, but may not be on pace to meet projections that had the superhero movie raking in $70 million for the weekend.
Last weekend’s winner, the Vin Diesel-led “Fast Five” held firm in second place with a respectable $10.5 million.
Chick flick “Something Borrowed” — starring Kate Hudson and Ginnifer Goodwin in an adaptation of the best-selling Emily Giffin novel — rounded out the top three, with $4.8 million. Hardly a blockbuster, but not bad for a rom-com.
“Jumping the Broom” grossed an estimated $4.2 million.
And, finally, bowing at a just 22 locations on Friday, Mel Gibson’s “The Beaver” took in just $30,000.
