Grown Ups Laugh Past Cruise and Diaz at Friday Box Office

Sony’s low brow comedy Grown Ups starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade and Rob Schneider won the battle of the newcomers on Friday with an estimated $14.5 million at the box office on its opening day. That total more than doubled the $6.35 million Fox’s Knight and Day with Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz put up on its third day.

The real story on Friday was Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story 3 which easily won its eighth consecutive day at the box office with just over $18 million. That score puts it on pace for around $60 million through the weekend and a trip past $200 million overall by close of business on Saturday (the current cumulative total is $185.6 million).

I’ll be traveling on Sunday so if you’re offline most of the day, check back in the evening for Shawn’s complete weekend box office totals.
