The huge blockbuster opening this weekend was made 20 years ago, and the horror film is a remake of a classic from the 80s, but the box office is humming as if both of them were brand new. According to the early numbers at Deadline, both Jurassic Park 3D and Evil Dead had huge Fridays, with Evil Dead at the head of the pack. The horror remake from director Fede Alvarez made $11.5 million on Friday, setting it up for an estimated $27 million weekend and an easy first place. Right behind it was the 3D re-release of Jurassic Park, already one of the biggest blockbusters in history.

The rest of the top 10 is rounded out by holdovers, with G.I. Joe: Retaliation holding »
