'The Vow' Pulls In a Hearty $11.6M at Box Office on Valentine's Day
Romantic movies are made for Valentine's Day -- literally -- and this year's "The Vow" is showing why: The Sony/Spyglass romantic drama pulled $11.6 million on Tuesday alone.
The Channing Tatum-Rachel McAdams love story set a box-office record for a non-weekend Valentine's Day.

The previous record belonged to the 2005 "Hith," which grossed $7.5 million on the Valentine's Day Monday in 2005. Last Valentine's Day -- also a Monday, "Just Go With It" took $6 million.
In 2010, the aptly named "Valentine's Day" took $23.4 million -- but the holiday fell on a Sunday.
One year earlier, the less-than-romantic "Friday the 13th" grossed $14.3 million. That Valentine's Day was a Saturday.
"The Vow," about a woman who emerges from a coma with amnesia and is courted all over again by her husband, now has grossed $56.1 million in North America and $65.8 million worldwide.
The movie opened Feb. 10.Related Articles: 'The Vow,' 'Safe House' Top Record-Breaking Box-Office Weekend 'The Vow' Will Stink Up Theaters Even Worse Than a Tub of Buttered Popcorn
