Box Score: Brave shoots into first place



Extending Pixar's streak of number one opening to thirteen in a row, Brave [BRAVE] top the weekend box office with an estimated $66.7 million.  The debut was the fifth best in Pixar's history and slightly better than Cars 2 last year.  The female heroine attracted an audience that was 57% female.  Positive word of mouth should continue to bring out families.

Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted [MADG3] was knocked down to second place with $20.2 million.  DreamWorks' aniamted sequel has cleared $157.6 million.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter [ALVH] slayed $16.5 million to debut in third place. The historical fantasy mashup did not connect with moviegoers, but those that came out were 56% male and 53% over the age of 25.

The weekend's third wide release Seeking a Friend for the End of the World [SAFEW] cratered tenth overall with just $3.8 million.
