Posted on

Whether it will be last weekend’s first place winner The Social Network or this frame’s new romantic comedy Life As We Know It is still undetermined. Social Network earned an estimated $4.9 million yesterday while the Katherine Heigl- Josh Duhamel starrer grossed a bit over $5 million on Friday.

In third place is another of this weekend’s new releases, Secretariat. The Diane Lane-starrer earned an estimated $4 million for its opening day. Spots four and five are likely to belong to kid flick Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole which grossed under $2 million on Friday and Wes Craven’s new flick, the 3-D horror film My Soul to Take, which grossed an estimated $2.7 million for the day. The order of these two films has yet to be determined. In fact, the top five are all very much in flux.  Saturday will be crucial in determining the winner.

Check back tomorrow for complete results.
