The box office had to contend with the World Series, a very early snowstorm in the Northeast, and Halloween festivities across the country this weekend, but audiences still managed to make it to the movies!
That being said, grosses for new releases “Puss in Boots,” “In Time,” and “The Rum Diary,” weren’t all that strong. Check out how they performed below:
Dreamworks Animation’s “Puss in Boots” was the top cat this weekend, clawing its way to a $34 million debut, 51 percent of which came from 3-D screens, and 7 percent of which was from IMAX theaters. On paper, that number sounds good — and, to be clear, it is by no means a disaster — but the result comes with a “Real Steel”-ish caveat. “Puss in Boots” cost $130 million to produce, and it earned Dreamworks’ third-worst debut for a computer animated film, beating only “Flushed Away” and “Antz,” which started with $18.8 million and $17.2 million, respectively. The 3-D “Shrek”-spinoff, cost as much as Dreamworks’ “Megamind,” which opened in early November 2010, but that film began with $46 million, and it played well through the Thanksgiving season on its way to a $148.4 million total.
