Box Office Results: Zac Efron shines outside of HSM franchise

Studio Estimates (April 17-19):

1.  17 Again – $24 million
2.  State of Play – $14 million
3.  Monsters vs. Aliens – $12.9 million
4.  The Hannah Montana Movie – $12.7 million
5.  Fast & Furious – $12.3 million

6.  Crank: High Voltage – $6.5 million

Like no surprise, 17 Again won the box office with $24 million this weekend.  The surprise result for the political thriller, State of Play, was runner-up with $14 million.  And rounding out the Top 5, Monsters vs. Aliens snuck up behind Hannah Montana and Fast & Furious for the third spot.  The other new release of the weekend, Crank: High Voltage, failed to land on the Top 5 with a weak $6.5 million gross.

As for our predictions, looks like Chris edged out my predictions very slightly.  Though we all predicted 17 Again to take the #1 spot, Chris was the only one to predict all of the Top 5 films.  Once again, my gross predictions were the best but my failure to include State of Play in the Top 5 lost it for me this time around.

Check back on Friday for our new predictions.  There are four new wide releases:  Earth, Fighting, The Soloist, and Obsessed.
