The movie industry kept a close watch on Pixar this weekend…
Would the animation studio continue its flawless streak or would its 13th production be the first to not only fail to open in first place at the boxoffice but bomb altogether?
Well, the results are in and Pixar’s winning streak remains unbroken!
BRAVE’s estimated opening weekend domestic ticket sales are $66.7 million and its audience’s CinemaScore was a great "A" rating. The film’s demos were 57% female and 43% male.
That makes BRAVE the 2nd largest animated June opening after its previous success, TOY STORY 3.
So how did our vampire hunting past president fare by comparison this weekend?
Not so good. ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER underperformed by grossing a mere $16.5 million for its three day opening weekend. Making matters worse the picture’s exit score was barely a "C ."
Maybe it’s time for Tim Burton to look more cautiously at future endeavors.
