The distribs' release of the horror reboot "Friday the 13th" scored a boffo $19.3 million from 3,105 theaters - the best domestic opening day ever for an R-rated horror-slasher pic.
By the time final four-day holiday figures are counted on Monday, "Friday the 13th" could post an opening somewhere north of the mid $50 million range, potentially besting the frame's record holder, 2007's "Ghost Rider" which made $52 million. Previous first day champ for an R-rated horror slasher belonged to 2007's "Saw IV" which grossed $14.8 million.
Among theater averages yesterday, "Friday the 13th" also had one of the highest among all pics playing with $6,215.
