Interstellar Beats Big Hero 6 on Friday

Christopher Nolan’s outer space epic Interstellar from Paramount took on Walt Disney Animation’s Big Hero 6. With Friday estimates being reported, we have a better idea that despite some (including’s Weekend Warrior) thinking the Nolan movie might win the weekend, it’s not that likely.

Interstellar took in an estimated $17 million on Friday (which includes the $2.7 million in Thursday night screenings that were originally reported as Thursday box office) to Big Hero 6‘s $15.8 million (which includes $1.4 million in previews).

Going by the Friday estimates, we can see Big Hero 6 winning the weekend with $55 million compared to Interstellar‘s $44 to $47 million, the latter also receiving a fair “B+” CinemaScore compared to the former’s solid “A.”
