The weekend box office battle between unexpected superheroes and the man behind the world’s most famous wizard ended in an upset.
Chronicle, a video diary-style movie following three high schoolers who are suddenly imbued with superpowers, edged out The Woman in Black, starring Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe.
Estimates put Chronicle at $22 million, while The Woman in Black took in $21 million.
Underworld: Awakening ($5.5 million) finished at #5.
The chart gets extremely packed after that.
Five films – One for the Money, Red Tails, Man on a Ledge, The Descendants and Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close – are projected to earn $4.5 million or so.
