Still from The Tourist
Yikes. Despite high hopes for Sony Pictures' seemingly sure-fire hit The Tourist starring Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, Deadline reports that the Action-Drama looks like it will only bring in about $18.5 million. Keep in mind though that despite its in Wide Release, it is showing on only 2,756 Screens compared to this Weekend's expected Box Office Champion Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of Dawn Teader 3-D. The latest in the series of Children's Book adaptations likely will pull in $28.5 million by end of day Sunday.  Reviews for both are mixed to negative according to Critical aggregate Rotten Tomaotes.

Last week's top Film Disney's Tangled 3-D pulled in $3.4 million last night, which will place it in third overall with $14.5 million approximately. Surprisingly still in-the-money is Christina Aguilera and Cher's  Burlesque, which likely will  pull-in $3.2 million in by end of Weekend; good enough to land it in sixth but still not enough to recoup its $55 million spent in production costs.

All eyes are Fox Searchlight's Black Swan which continues to wow. Expanding only to 90 theatres yesterday, it still brought in $925k. Expect it to place in eighth with $3 million. 

Boiling under is The Fighter which premiered last night in New York City with Amy Adams and Mark Wahlberg in attendance, earning a stellar $90k from just four theatres as the "Irish" Mickey Ward-centered Biopic debuted in Limited Release. Expect big things as buzz is feverish and don't forget to check back tomorrow for pics from its Toronto Premiere right here.
