Box Office: Tomorrowland underwhelms but wins Memorial Day weekend

Walt Disney Pictures opened Brad Bird’s (The Incredibles) latest movie, the sci-fi adventure Tomorrowland starring George Clooney, Britt Robertson, Hugh Laurie and Raffey Cassidy, in 3,972 theaters on Friday (forsaking the usual Thursday previews). It was #1 on Friday with $9.7 million and Disney has projected that the movie will end up with $32.3 million over the three-day weekend and $40.7 million over the four days, making it the top movie of the weekend. $5 million of that amount can be credited to its 354 IMAX screens in North America.
