'Knowing' leads 'I Love You, Man' and 'Duplicity' in tight box office race

Posted on

Nicolas Cage’s Knowing jumped out to an early lead at the weekend box office, grossing $9 million on Friday. The sci-fi flick thus has the inside edge to win a frame that is living up to expectations as a closely fought contest between three big new releases. Of those competitors, the R-rated Paul Rudd-Jason Segel comedy I Love You, Man fared well, earning a solid $6.4 mil on Friday, while Julia Roberts’ rom-thrill Duplicity was a bit soft, with $4.7 mil. Reigning champ Race to Witch Mountain, meanwhile, banked $3.8 mil and should rise in the box office rankings as families flock to their local multiplexes over the weekend. Friday’s totals are below, and please check back here tomorrow for a full weekend recap in the Box Office Report.

1. Knowing — $9 mil
2. I Love You, Man — $6.4 mil
3. Duplicity — $4.7 mil
4. Race to Witch Mountain — $3.8 mil
5. Watchmen — $2 mil
