This weekend, the latest Disney/Pixar film, Brave, made its debut in theaters, and Pixar has reason to celebrate once again. The film took the number 1 spot at the box office this weekend, beating out such other films as Madagascar 3 and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. While analysts projected that Brave would only take in between $55 and $60 million domestically this weekend, the film greatly surpassed expectations. The film ended up taking in $66.7 million at the domestic box office and an additional $13.5 million internationally, putting its grand opening weekend total worldwide at approximately $80 million. In addition to earning the number one spot at the box office, Brave also now holds the distinction of having the fourth highest June opening weekend in history. This marks Pixarâ€™s 13th consecutive number one opening at the box office. A wild departure from Pixarâ€™s usual fare, Brave was the studioâ€™s first fairy tale and first film to feature a female heroine as its main character. However, the departure seems to have paid off, as Brave celebrated Pixarâ€™s fifth highest-grossing opening weekend, beating out last summerâ€™s Cars 2.
