Monday Box office review
Brave, Pixar’s 13th feature animated film opened this past Friday and took the number 1 spot at the box office. This is a movie I am very interested in seeing given my love for European Royalty. It also looks great and by all estimates is the best animation Pixar has done thus far. It took in an estimated $66,739,000 in the domestic box office and $13, 500,000 in the foreign market for a grand total of $80,239,000. This is a very good opening weekend for a Pixar movie. The reviews for Brave are very good.
Madagascar 3 which had been at number 1 the previous couple of weeks fell to number 2, which isn’t bad considering it beat out Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Madagascar 3 took in $20, 200, 000 million over the weekend for grand total of $157,574,000 domestic, $208,400,000 over seas and $365,974,000 for a worldwide total. Madagascar 3 is doing very well.
The number 1 & 2 movies are animated movies!
Poor Abe. I don’t think he’s doing so well. I have to admit it it is a very strange premise and the movie looks great but the opening weekend is a bit of a disappointment. Abe took in $16,500,000 domestically and only gathered a paltry $7, 800, 000 in the foreign market. I guess not many foreigners want to see the 16th American President battle the undead. I hope Abe can recover from this one. I will be watching!
