Movies Money Monday: ‘Tangled’ Dethrones ‘Potter’ at the Box Office

Disney’s 3D animated flick Tangled took the top of the box office this weekend by earning an estimated $21.5 million. The film has made nearly $96.5M, but successfully pushed Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I, off the top of the list. The second-to-last Potter flick came in a close second with $16.7M.

Christina Aguilera’s musical monster Burlesque brought in just over $6M matching the same amount taken in by Unstoppable starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pine. The latter has reached nearly $70M in its run thus far. Love and Other Drugs, the romantic dramedy starring just-turned-Oscar-host Anne Hathaway, made an estimated $5.7M.

The Warrior’s Way was the only wide release this weekend and, not surprisingly, only brought in around $3M. Despite a cast including Geoffrey Rush and Kate Bosworthy, film was limited in its audience reach. The film cost approximately $42M to make and will likely not see a great ROI in the United States but could potentially reach a large audience overseas.

Big releases like The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and The Tourist will be big draws this weekend, so stay tuned for a wealthy report in one week.
