Diminutive Disney Dogs have Big Box Office Bit

Beverly Hills Chihuahua’s pint sized stars racked up another victory at the box office coming in first over two usually big named box office stars. BHC earned $17.5 million over the weekend, taking its 10-day haul to $52.5 million.

The new terrorism thriller “Body of Lies” failed to take the top spot at the weekend box office in North America on Sunday….

The $70 million Warner Bros. film, starring Russell Crowe and Leonardo DiCaprio as American spies, had to settle for the No. 3 slot with $13.1 million, behind reigning champ “Beverly Hills Chihuahua” and the new low-budget horror “Quarantine.”

Way to go Disney. Hopefully this means the public is in the mood for Canine stories as Disney’s BOLT opens next month on November 21st.
