The Transporter Refueled
Last night, “The Transporter Refueled” received a modest $365K from action fans, according to Variety.

The Kevin Costner vehicle pulled in $325K in evening screenings and ended up with a weekend sum of $12M, a respectable opening for Costner nowadays.

I was thinking it can’t possibly stay that high by the time it opens today; my prediction was mid to high 80s.
