Little girls like princesses, little boys like frogs... we can't lose! Or so Disney Inc might have calculated when they greenlit The Princess and The Frog. Whatever the strategy, it paid off; Number 1, $24 million, after a couple of weeks of limited release. Meanwhile, director Clint Eastwood's Invictus earns ok money for Oscar-bait: #3 at $8 mil and change. He coulda called it GOAL! and made 2 million more.
Bullock's The Blind Side comes in at #2. You know it has made over $149 mil so far? Now that's good Oscar bait.
Hola Amigos! The failure of the week (and remember, the real failure are never released) again is From Mexico with Love, pulling down $56 bucks and coming in at #100. Don't give up! That's over twice last week's total!
