“The Fighter” earns $12.2 Million

With great anticipation Paramount released nation-wide the Lowell based movie The Fighter last weekend.

To put it in perspective…The highest grossing film over the weekend was Tron Legacy earning $43.6 million; second highest Yogi Bear with $16.7 million and third was The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader with $12.4 million.

And this is what hit.com had to say about The Fighter:

On a happier note, impressing in fourth place was Paramount Pictures and Relativity Media’s “The Fighter.” After receiving a slew of Golden Globe and SAG Awards nominations earlier last week, the inspirational boxing drama expanded to 2,505 theaters and grossed a very solid $12.2 million in the process. The film which features Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, Amy Adams and Melissa Leo should continue to play well throughout the holiday season and through the Academy Awards in February.
