The Green Hornet & Grenade Chart Impact!!!

The Green Hornet #1 Box OfficeBruno Mars Impact Billboard Chart
"The Green Hornet" appears to have played to expectations for the four-day Martin Luther King holiday weekend.  The Sony Pictures action comedy is estimated to have grossed $40 million over the frame which is just slightly below industry pre-release polling.  However, considering the studio thought the film was dead in the water just last summer, that's still a major turnaround for the Seth Rogen reboot.

Meanwhile, Bruno Mars impacts the Billboard chart and circles back to the top of the Billboard Hot 100, as "Grenade" once again replaces Katy Perry's "Firework" at No. 1 (1-2).

"Grenade" supplanted "Firework" two weeks ago, only to have Perry's track reclaim the chart's lead spot for a fourth cumulative frame on last week's ranking. It is the first time two songs have alternated holds at No. 1 over four weeks since "Live Your Life" by T.I. featuring Rihanna traded spots with Beyonce's "Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)" in December 2008. Mars' track sits atop Digital Songs for a fourth straight week with 275,000 downloads (down 35%), according to Nielsen SoundScan, as the post-holiday glow has finally worn off the digital download market with total sales dipping by 29% this week.

Threatening the reign of Mars' "Grenade" or the return of Perry's "Firework" to No. 1 next week will be the arrival of Britney Spears' "Hold It Against Me," which was released near-simultaneously at radio (Jan. 10) and exclusively at iTunes (Jan. 11). With airplay off to a blazing start and track sales set to exceed 400,000 according to industry sources, a second No. 1 debut for the pop starlet is likely. She previously started at the summit with "3" on the chart dated October 24, 2009.
