Animation Domination: Brave Wins the Weekend

by at . Comments

Cartoons ruled the box office, as the two highest-grossing films of the weekend were 3D computer animated features. Brave took the top spot in its opening weekend, earning $66.7 million. The film follows Merida, a young princess who defies tradition and accidentally unleashes a curse on her kingdom.

Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted dropped to number 2 this week, grabbing $20.2 million in ticket sales. The film saw two straight weeks at number one, topping Prometheus in both movies' first two weekends.

Coming in third with a $16.5 million gross is the fantasy action film Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. The adaptation of the mashup novel by Seth Grahame-Smith stars Benjamin Walker as a fictionalized vampire-slaying version of our 16th President.

Prometheus dropped to fourth place in its third weekend, with an even $10 million. There's a tie at fifth place this week, as Rock of Ages drops to fifth after a disappointing opening weekend last week, earning $8 million along with Snow White and the Huntsman.
