” Universal reports this morning that Lone Survivor earned an estimated $14.4 million on Friday, putting it on course for one of the best January openings ever.Cloverfield owns the month’s record with $40.1 million back in 2008. Lone Survivor is projected by BoxOffice to bank a strong $38 million. As expected, the flick is playing strong throughout America’s heartland and among military families. Mark Wahlberg continues to expand his box office drawing power as the film is poised to exceed the debuts of Act of Valor ($24.5 million) and Zero Dark Thirty‘s expansion one year ago this weekend ($24.4 million). Early word of mouth appears very healthy with 85 percent of more than 32,000 Flixster users anticipating or approving of the film.”
