Weekend Box Office: Brave Bows Over Competition

Via The Play Forum (Cause I write there also):

Three new movies opened over the weekend — Brave, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World — and Brave easily claimed the top spot. The latest Pixar/Disney film performed solidly with an estimated $66.7 million in it’s opening weekend and is Pixar’s 13th #1 movie in a row. The other two new movies didn’t even come close to Brave’s opening with Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter earning $16.5 million and Seeking A Friend finding just $3.8 million and barely making it into the Top 10 list.

Madagascar 3 had another strong week with $20.2 million earned and the #2 spot on the top 10 list. Prometheus was off roughly 50% from it’s previous week, taking in an estimated $10 million and sliding down the list to #4.

It looks like The Avengers should cross the $600 million milestone this week. The movie earned another $7.04 million and it’s total domestic take is now $598,300,000.

Here is the Top 10 for the weekend of June 22 – 24, 2012:

1. Brave ($66,739,000)
2. Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted ($20,200,000)
3. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter ($16,500,000)
4. Prometheus ($10,000,000)
5. Rock of Ages ($8,000,000)
6. Snow White and the Huntsman ($8,000,000)
7. That’s My Boy ($7,900,000)
8. Marvel’s The Avengers (7,040,000)
9. MIB 3 ($5,600,000)
10. Seeking a Friend for the End of the World ($3,836,000)
