Record "INC."

 

And so the holiday movie season takes off! The latest epic from Disney and Pixar, Monsters, INC. (which I saw and really, really enjoyed) took the spot for the weekend with a record breaking 62.5 million (!). This is truly amazing, considering children's ticket prices are cheaper than adults... but I'm sure a lot of adults got dragged with them. This is the biggest animated opening ever, not to mention the biggest November opening ever (can "Harry Potter" beat it?).

In a far but very respectable second, was The One. Jet Li's latest opened to poor reviews, but a fine take of 19.1. In third was newcomer Domest Disturbance with 14 million, K-PAX with 10 and 13 Ghosts with 7.8 million.

Riding In Cars With Boys hung on with 4 million, while From Hell is going down there with only 3.5 million. Training Day made 3 million, Bandits 2.8 and finally, Serendipity with 2.3.

Be sure to check out my review of Shrek. Have a good week everyone and watch as we pass the big 400!
