No surprise here: Brave is now the 13th Pixar movie to debut in first place at the box office. That makes Pixar 13 for 13.
Speaking of movies that aren't very good, the poorly received Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter didn't even make it to second place. (That honor went to box-office champ Madagascar 3.) ALVH took in $16.5 million, not much compared to its estimated $69 million budget.
There were a couple notable limited releases — Woody Allen's To Rome With Love and indie apocalypse rom-com Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. The former did well, earning at least $75,000 at each of the five theaters where it screened, while the latter — which opened on 1,625 screens — averaged less than $2,500 at each.
Still, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World did crack the Top 10, with a total gross of $3.8 million. It could be worse, but ... not by much.
