Jason's Cat, Now In It's 197th Life

Friday The 13th, the latest edition of the Slash Opera has packed theaters like no other this past President's Day weekend, scoring an estimated $42.2 million from Friday to Sunday. Final numbers and standings should be out by Wednesday.

Elsewhere, Confessions of a Shopaholic ($15.4 million) looks to do no better than a fourth-place debut, while Joaquin Phoenix attempts to finish off his movie career on a high note.

According to the latest numbers:

Friday the 13th is the 124th entry, (12,755 including amateur versions on the net) in the psycho-killer, hacker-bludgeoning franchise. And, as of today, it's the series' biggest-debuting movie, besting the $36.4 million posted by the Nightmare on Elm Street-associated Freddy vs. Jason in 2003.

Friday the 13th brought in so much money, so fast, it had its $16 million budget covered, chopped up and buried before the close of business on Friday, when it took in $19.3 million according to the early numbers.

Also according to the latest rumors, "Freddie & Jason VS Karl Childers & Ann Coulter" is already in the works.
