$15.9 Million Opening for Ghost Rider!

Sony Pictures and Mark Steven Johnson’s adaptation of Marvel Comics Ghost Rider, starring Nicolas Cage and Eva Mendes, rode home with an estimated $15.9 million its opening Friday, about $600,000 more than Johnson’s Daredevil opened with over Presidents’ Day weekend four years ago. With that impressive of an opening, Ghost Rider is looking likely to set a new record for a Presidents’ Day weekend opener if it hold up well enough to make over $45.1 million over the four-day weekend. Either way, it’s likely to become Nicolas Cage’s biggest opening movie to date by topping his 2004 hit National Treasure.
