Deadline has some early Saturday and weekend numbers, the highlight of which is that REAL STEEL is claiming a 40% Saturday bump, which would lead it to a $29M weekend, somewhat higher than expected.  Since Steel is a family movie, a big increase for matinees is possible, but we’ll see if it bears out when final numbers are released.

THE IDES OF MARCH is estimating a 25% Saturday increase, on its way to a slightly underwhelming $10.5M.
Holdovers all look the same as they did yesterday, with 50/50 holding well and the rest less so.
