Real Steel Edges out Footloose

In what might be a photo finish, a last round TKO (or whatever you call it when the bout ends neck to neck and it's up to the judges to finalize the winner), between Hugh Jackman's Real Steel and the remake of the 1980's flick, Footloose. Only $200 thousand separate the two in weekend estimates so far. So it could go either way. But as of right now, Real Steel has the edge.

The other remake (ahem prequel), The Thing, managed to rake in under $9 million, making it a pretty much forgettable movie come next weekend. And as for that star-packed, but poorly marketed comedy, The Big Year, well... it's tanking with a 9th place finish. Seems like they're really trying to bury this movie.
