Quite "Bear"able

 

This Halloween weekend, droves still went to see the horrendous Scary Movie 3 as it made another 20 million and now approaches a total of 80 million. But what's this? One of Disney's final 2-D efforts, Brother Bear, took in an impressive 19.4 million for Saturday and Sunday. As most of you probably know, Disney chose to open the film on a Saturday since they didn't think many families would come Halloween night. Nonetheless, the strong debut is good news for traditional animated film fans. Maybe the genre isn't dead yet... and surely if the film opened on Friday, it would have been in first place.

Also holding its own over the Halloween weekend was the remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre with 10.8 million, as the cheap studio film now stands at 66 million. Also holding strong was the drama Radio with 9.6 million, followed by Runaway Jury with 6.5 million and Mystic River with 6.2 million. Rounding the weekend out were Kill Bill: Vol. 1 and The School Of Rock with 4.5 million each, Intolerable Cruelty with 2.4 million and Good Boy! with 2.2 million.

As the November movie season begins to turn up next week, can Disney's "Brother Bear" hold up with a slew of family films opening? Stay tuned, DVD fans!
