© Universal Pictures / 'The Best Man Holiday' 'Best Man Holiday' Stuns 'Thor' With $10.7M Friday Box-Office Upset Nov. 16, 2013, 10:40 AM EST By Todd Cunningham TheWrap Suppose you threw a giant reunion party and ended up topping the box office? That's what fans of Universal's "The Best Man Holiday" did Friday, lifting the sequel to a $10.7 million opening night and knocking off the reigning No. 1 movie, "Thor: The Dark World" in the process. The African-American skewing romantic comedy is on course to finish with around $30 million for the three days, well ahead of projections which were for around $20 million. Bing: Find review for 'The Best Man Holiday' Disney's Marvel superhero sequel wasn't far behind Friday with $10.4 million and should wind up the weekend at around $35 million for its second win in a row. It's in a lot more theaters - 3,841 to 2,024 - than "Best Man Holiday" and many are 3D and Imax, so it is expected to dominate Saturday and Sunday.

That's when the original "The Best Man" opened at No. 1, and Malcolm D. Lee - who writes, directs and produces with Sean Daniel - reassembled the ensemble of the first film for this holiday sequel, the week's only wide release. "The Wolf of Wall Street," directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, had been set to open this weekend, but Paramount shifted it to Christmas Day last month. Morris Chestnut, Taye Diggs, Regina Hall, Terrence Howard, Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long, Monica Calhoun and Melissa De Sousa reprise their career-launching roles in "Best Man Holiday," and Eddie Cibrian joins in a supporting role. "Last Vegas' was running a solid third after taking in $2.5 million Friday. That's just a 20 percent drop from last week and puts the geriatrics-gone-wild comedy on pace for a $9.5 million third week for CBS Films. Paramount's "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa," in its fourth week, was next with $2.2 million Friday. That topped the $1.7 million gobbled up by Relativity's "Free Birds," but the 3D animated kids film could overhaul "Grandpa" if families turn out on Saturday and Sunday, and both films will likely wind up with around $7.5 million for the weekend. "Gravity" is still orbiting in its ninth week, taking in $1.7 million on Friday. That puts the 3D space epic on course for a $6 million weekend. It's taken in $235 million domestically for Warner Bros., and more than $477 million worldwide. Summit Entertainment's sci-fi tale "Ender's Game" is also looking at $6 million for the three days, after taking in $1.7 million on Friday. Oscar hopefuls "12 Years a Slave" and "Captain Phillips" were next and should finish at around $4.5 million. The slavery saga brought in $1.3 million from 1,411 theaters Friday for Fox Searchlight in its fifth week; Sony's Tom Hanks piracy tale brought in $1.2 million from 2,626 theaters and should cross the $100 million domestically this weekend. ..
