Cars Box Office Earnings

Cars pulled in 62.8 Million Dollars this weekend according to Box Office Mojo.

How does that fare against other animated films' opening weekends? Shrek 2 pulled in 108 Million, The Incredibles got 70.4, Finding Nemo got 70.2, Ice Age 2 got 68 million, making Cars having the 5th highest opening for an animated film.

That means it also got ahead of Monsters Inc (62.5 Million), Toy Story 2 (57.3 Million), A Bug's Life (33.2 Million) and Toy Story (29.1 Million) to make it the third highest opening for a Pixar film.

And in more number soup - I finally hit 15,000 hits today. Thanks so much to all you guys who keep coming back!

I don't see nearly enough interviews from Ed Catmull, co-Founder of Pixar (and now President of Walt Disney Feature Animation). Make sure to check it out!

You've got to check out this quote:

"Disney has had two major heydays," (Ed) Catmull said, referring to animation's two golden eras — the first beginning in the late 1930s, the second in the 1990s. "We're going to make a third."
