Brave Strong At Box Office On Second Weekend

Congrats to the team at Pixar whose Brave continued to have a strong showing at the box office in its second weekend. It came in third behind two new movies, both targeted at adult audiences. As the most recent kids film, it lost less than 50% of its first weekend numbers, which is usually a good sign a film has legs. On Friday it earned $10.5M, Saturday $13.4M, and $35.5M for the weekend in total. Cumulative domestic box office is now $132.2M. Add in foreign grosses and it’s now $158M.

Brave continues on a trajectory toward over $200 million at the domestic box office. I still know Disney and animation fans who haven’t seen Brave yet. Now is definitely the time to go see it while it still is playing in the larger theaters. If you haven’t seen Brave in theaters yet, are you planning to and if not, why not?

  1. This will be a first-time big-screen movie experience for our girls (5 and 3). Our plans are to see it over the upcoming holiday weekend. I’m more excited than they are – I’ve been waiting for just the right movie because I want it to be an experience they remember fondly. I hope this is it!

  2. I got to see it Saturday night. I LOVED it! I saw it with my 12 year old daughter. We live in a tiny town without its own movie theater. So on the half hour ride home we talked and talked about the movie. It was very interesting to compare and contrast the different things we took away from the movie. Let’s just say we are both huge fans of strong female leads :). I think Disney and Pixar have hit this one out of the park!

  3. We’re going to see it today, Canadian holiday, but I’m not surprised if box office is down for Pixar movies… it’s at the point that their blu-rays would be a blind buy for me no matter what movie it is, so it’s really wasting money to see it at the theatre AND buy it on blu-ray.

  4. We watched it in 3D on Friday and found it breathtaking graphically and the story line was very entertaining. The realism produced by the Renderman software is phenomenal.
    The generated “flyover” geographic scenes seemed as real as any that I’ve ever viewed.
    Incredible “eye candy” was one of my first thoughts.

  5. I saw this last week with my daughter and was happily surprised. It was brilliant!! Would definitely see it again.
