The 20th anniversary re-release of the film musical Grease earned $13 million at the box office during its first weekend, Mar. 27-29, according to Daily Variety.
The film retains much of the score from the 1972 Broadway production, though it also incorporates several interpolations, including "You're the One That I Want," "Hopelessly Devoted to You" and the title song.
At 3388 performances, the original Broadway production was, briefly, the longest-running show in Broadway history, before being surpassed by A Chorus Line (which has since been surpassed by Cats). A 1994 revival, with an added exclamation point (Grease!), ran 1501 performances before closing in January of this year.
