As 2012 continues to reverse last year’s trend of middling box
office for horror fare, the top two movies this weekend have switched positions, as Fox's CHRONICLE is now projected to squeak past CBS Films’ THE WOMAN IN BLACK to
win the frame.
An updated report on Deadline has the found-footage teen paranormal thriller estimated to do $22.2 million; right behind is the Daniel Radcliffe-starring ghost story with $21.5 million predicted. And in third place, last
week’s winner, Open Road’s wolf-survival opus THE GREY, looks to have a solid hold, dipping to $9.8 million in its second weekend for a total so far of $35 million. (Updated
estimates will be reported Sunday afternoon, and final grosses on Monday.) This is the
fourth weekend out of the five so far this year that has seen a fear feature
lead the box-office charts, after the debuts of THE DEVIL INSIDE ($33.7
million), UNDERWORLD: AWAKENING ($25.3 million, estimated to clear $54.6 million by the end of this weekend) and THE GREY ($19.7 million).
