Box Office: No spoilers for J.J. Abrams as 'Super 8' hits no. 1 Friday with $12.2 million

From Box Office:

Debuting Friday with $12.2 million including $1 million in midnight sneaks, "Super 8" should gross between a strong $33-35 million for the weekend. That's higher than pre-release polling predicted and no doubt thanks to a massive last minute marketing push from the studio.
