>DeadlineHollywood is reporting Green Lantern earned $3.35 million at midnight plays (at 1,810 theaters).  This result is similar to recent midnight previews for Thor and X-Men: First Class.  (See Mitch Salem’s Green Lantern review HERE.)  This might indicate Green Lantern could open in the high-$50 million range, although we will stick with the published $55 million forecast.  See the Weekend Predictions post for more detail, and also note the titles for the 2009 films in “Same Weekend Last Two Years” section have been corrected.
