Heterosexual stud Hugh Jackman's Wolverine DISAPPOINTS at the box office!

Wolverine is expected to open to $56m and possibly less, after a $21M Friday and $18m Saturday. The last Wolverine opened to $85m. Fox today says it opened with $21.0M Friday, not the $23M the studio projected after that strong $4M from Thursday late shows beginning at 10 PM. Fox then throughout Friday began downsizing The Wolverine weekend from $65M to $61M. ”It’s an odd one because off the late shows Thursday and probably into mid-day yesterday we thought we were headed to $65M or thereabouts – and it just kept slipping downward as the day wore on into the evening,” a Fox exec explains to me. But rival majors last night estimated an even lower $53M-$56M - and they were right: “Softer than many people thought it might be as the last Wolverine film opened to $85.1m.
