Weekend B.O. June 22-24 - 'Brave' Is On Top

Shadow and Act By Sergio | Shadow and Act June 24, 2012 at 12:36PM

Despite the fact that it got disappointing reviews, calling it the weakest Pixar entry since Cars (and maybe even weaker than that), Brave (a film I admit I couldn't even feign an interest in watching, like curling) was, no surprise, the No. 1 film this weekend, and is expected to do extremely well at the box office like all other Pixar films.

Brave

Despite the fact that it got disappointing reviews, calling it the weakest Pixar entry since Cars (and maybe even weaker than that), Brave (a film I admit I couldn't even feign an interest in watching, like curling) was, no surprise, the No. 1 film this weekend, and is expected to do extremely well at the box office like all other Pixar films.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Slayer was, on the other hand, not so surprisingly, a box office disappointment, and negative word of mouth guarantees that it won't be around much longer.

Meanwhile The Avengers just keeps going and going and going, now just under the $600 million domestic mark:

1) Brave BV $66,739,000
2) Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted P/DW $20,200,000 Total: $157,574,000
3) Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Fox $16,500,000
4) Prometheus Fox $10,000,000 Total: $108,547,000
5) Rock of Ages WB (NL) $8,000,000 Total: $28,763,000
6) Snow White and the Huntsman Uni.$8,000,000 Total: $137,100,000
7) That's My Boy Sony $7,900,000 Total: $28,180,000
8) Marvel's The Avengers BV $7,040,000 Total: $598,300,000
9) MIB 3 Sony $5,600,000 Total: $163,339,000
10) Seeking a Friend for the End of the World Focus $3,836,000
11) Moonrise Kingdom Focus $3,411,000 Total: $11,625,000
12) The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel FoxS $1,615,000 Total: $38,370,000
