Friday Report: 'If I Stay' Ascends to First Ahead of 'Sin City' Debacle

23 August 2014 9:45 AM, PDT

If I Stay easily took first place on a quiet Friday at the box office. Meanwhile, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For had a horrible start in sixth place, and won't come anywhere close to $10 million this weekend.Playing at 2,907 theaters, If I Stay opened to a solid $6.83 million. That's above Charlie St. Cloud ($5.6 million) and last weekend's The Giver ($4.75 million). If it plays like The Fault in our Stars, it will finish the weekend with less than $13 million; a more likely outcome is a pattern similar to Divergent, which would put it at just over $16 million.That would likely allow Guardians of the Galaxy to move back in to first place in its fourth weekend. The movie was off a light 30 percent to $4.8 million; for the weekend, it should wind up between $16 and $17 million. It passed Maleficent yesterday, and it will become the highest-grossing movie of the Summer »

For the weekend, it will likely wind up in second place behind young-adult adaptation If I Stay.If Sin City: A Dame to Kill For had reached theaters in close proximity to the original, it would be in much better shape right now. With its stark black-and-white cinematography and animated backgrounds, the original Sin City was the first movie that truly looked like a graphic novel come to life. It received positive reviews (78 percent on Rotten Tomatoes), and strong responses »
