(Newser) – Apparently a lot of you hate-watched Fifty Shades of Grey this Valentine's Day weekend: The Jamie Dornan-Dakota Johnson S&M flick, which was widely panned as boring, pulled down $81.7 million in its first three days, reports the AP, and could be on track for $90 million-plus over the four-day weekend. It was, as Deadline reports, the biggest Presidents Day weekend opening ever. Some 82% of those who turned out on its opening night were female, adds Deadline. Meanwhile, Fifty Shades is doing even better internationally, where it's set to earn $158.3 million.
