Abe Lincoln stakes out thirdThe animation domination at the US box office continued this weekend as Pixar scored yet another launch at the top of the charts with their latest, Brave.
The adventure, about a young Scottish princess who decides to try to change her fate, took in an impressive $66.7 million across the three days, making it the fourth highest opener for the company.
With a new ‘toon arrival in town, Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted took a slight hit, but only went down one place with a healthy $20.2 million in its second week.
That kept Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter from a spot in the top two, and it landed with a thud in third, making just $16.5 million.
Fourth was Prometheus with $10 million and in fifth was Rock Of Ages, which made $8 million.
Snow White And The Huntsman sank one place to sixth, earning $8 million, above That’s My Boy at seventh with $7.9 million.
At eighth was The Avengers finally starting its march out of the charts, but still picking up $7 million after eight weeks on release.
Ninth was Men In Black 3 with $5.6 million, ahead of Steve Carell’s latest, Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World, which had a disappointing start in 10th place with $3.8 million.
