“Happy Death Day” predictably ranked as Friday’s #1 film in the US.

The new release closed its first day with $11.6 million in receipts. The count, which positions the film for an opening weekend in the $24-28 million range, more than doubles that of Friday’s #2 film.

Fellow new release “The Foreigner,” that #2 film, earned $4.7 million.

Credited with $4.3 million, “Blade Runner 2049” ranked as Friday’s #3 film. It will likely move into the #2 spot by the end of the weekend.

“It” (#4, $1.9 million) and “The Mountain Between Us” (#5, $1.7 million) complete the Friday Top 5.
