BOX OFFICE: ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER Flops With Unimpressive $6.3M Opening

While yesterday's early estimates were spot on when it comes to how well Pixar's Brave looks set to perform in North America this weekend, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter now looks set to be yet another 2012 critical and commercial flop.


Yesterday's estimate that Brave would have an opening weekend of 60+ million was spot on, as The Hollywood Reporter now reveals that it looks set to finish with a total of more than $66M. After topping the North American box office yesterday with an impressive $24.5 million, Pixar's latest animated feature will take the #1 spot this weekend, while Madagascar 3 will easily nab second place. Down in third is Timur Bekmambetov's critically panned Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Despite it seemingly heading towards a debut of between $20 million - $25 million, a paltry £6.3 million on Friday means that it will more than likely finish at only $16M. The film cost $68M to make, so its success may play a big role in whether or not rival studio Lionsgate decide to continue working on Seth Grahame-Smith's (who wrote the film and novel it is based on) Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
