Cher's Best Opening Weekend

Cher's Best Opening Weekend


Burlesque may be facing stiff competition from Harry Potter and Tangled, but the movie musical starring Cher and Christina Aguilera is on its way to making $18 million over the five-day holiday frame.

The film, which marks Cher's first starring role since 1999's Tea With Mussolini, is expected to take in more than $12 million opening weekend. Burlesque already took in $5 million Wednesday and Thursday.

Cher's previous best opening weekend was for The Witches of Eastwick in 1987.

The film cost $50 million to produce and should make that money back in its stateside release. It is expected to do better in its international release next month.
