What a fun movie. Of course not as good as Toy Story 3, but still very good. Good 3d in it as well. We again saw a bunch of new faces to see it in 3d.

Predictions from Boxoffice.com & others were an opening weekend of $25-$37 million. Did $20 million last night with a 300+ locations still to report.

Question for the 2d locations: Did they leave the 3d content in the credits? Our customers really liked that part and almost everyone stayed in their seats. Kinda of cool seeing the kid's reactions.

That is because Disney demanded 4 weeks on Toy Story 3 in 3d. (I only know of one location that was able to drop their 3d booking this week -cough,cough) So the single 3d locations can't play it unless they did not want to play TS3. Good move by Disney as they will probably keep those 3d screens for 6 weeks. The 3d is pretty good on Despicable Me. Good for the mega-plexes with mulitple 3d screens. They need a break.

We did not even get to play this at all. Sony had us blocked in and we could not free up a screen.

Toy Story 3 was doing too good to drop even though it was our oldest picture. Grown Ups was our low gross but still too much for Sony to let us drop after only 2 weeks. We had a Karate Kid to Grown Ups deal. We will drop TS3 this Friday for Inception. I am not sure that it will replace TS3 even though WB thinks it will be huge. Its not our audience but we will be nice to WB and sure try to make it huge for them. I hope Sorcerer’s Apprentice does well for us.
