According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony's Hitch demonstrated considerable prowess at the boxoffice during the four-day Presidents Day weekend as it fought off three new wide releases and hooked up with an estimated $36.5 million to hold the top spot for the second straight session.
The Will Smith starrer, a PG-13 romantic comedy, narrowly bested the debut of Warner Bros. Pictures' Constantine, a supernatural thriller starring Keanu Reeves that placed second with a solid opening of an estimated $34.6 million.
While it's not exactly an apples-to-apples comparison because of the Monday holiday, the boxoffice for the first three days of the four-day frame for Hitch was $31.4 million, down just 27% from its debut. The Andy Tennant-directed feature has accumulated a sterling estimate of $94.8 million in 11 days and will be the first release of the year to cross the $100 million mark.
