Deadline reports that the midnight showing for the Green Lantern movie opened at decent $3.35 million at 1,810 theaters.
This is ahead of Thor ($3.2 million at 1800 locations) and about even with X-Men: First Class ($3.3 million at 1,783).
Worth noting that X-Men is the only movie not to benefit from the increased price of 3D ticket sales? Now, that was a good flick.
Anyway, GL is projected to gross somewhere between $50-60 million this weekend.
The Green Lantern movie opens in theaters June 17th, 2011 starring Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan, Blake Lively as Carol Ferris, Peter Sarsgaard as Hector Hammond, Mark Strong as Sinestro and Temuera Morrison as Abin Sur.
