Deadline has preliminary weekend boxoffice numbers, and if they hold, PUSS IN BOOTS will have had a remarkable second weekend.  DreamWorks Animation is reportedly claiming a Saturday number doubling its Friday, which would mean a $34M weekend, virtually even with its opening.  We’ll see if this claim survives till Sunday morning, let alone Monday actuals.

Elsewhere, TOWER HEIST should do $25-27M, while it seems that A VERY HAROLD & KUMAR 3D XMAS had an even softer Saturday than expected, and may only get to $13M for the weekend.  Holdovers look to be in line with Friday’s numbers.
