Chronicle, Woman in Black top b-o collections

MUMBAI: 20th Century Fox?s high school superpower film Chronicle opened with a collection of $22 million. It was followed closely by CBS Films? Daniel Radcliffe?s horror-thriller The Woman in Black that brought in $21 million.

Both the films over performed with total box office revenues up by 35 per cent compared to that of last year.

For months, films have been skewing, bringing in a lot of worry to filmmakers. But that trend reversed on Friday.

Both films proved to be victories for their respective companies. Fox only spent $12 million to produce Chronicle.

While Chronicle received a B CinemaScore, Woman and Black received a B-. Woman in Black?s performance is a boost for Radcliffe whose Harry Potter fans turned up to see the star, with females making up 59 per cent of the audience.

Woman in Black, based on Susan Hill?s novel of the same name, was produced by Hammer Film Productions and preemptively acquired by CBS Films just before the Cannes Film Festival last year.

The third new film of the weekend is Universal and Working Title Films? family friendly whale film Big Miracle that opened at No. 4 with a muted revenue of $8.5 million.

Beating Big Miracle for the No. 3 spot was Open Road Film?s The Grey that grossed $9.5 million in its second weekend for a cume of $34.7 million. The film ?s attendance fell roughly 40 per cent. The film received an A- CinemaScore.
