Box Office Beatdown – Fear the Frog
Disney proved that you can still make money even without shit-ugly 3D animation as “The Princess and the Frog” took the weekend with $25 million. Of course, it cost $105 million, and opened in a record number of theaters, so maybe Shrek doesn’t have anything to worry about just yet.
The news was less good for “Invictus”, a passion project of Morgan Freeman’s about Nelson Mandela and…er…rugby. The sports movie only pulled in $9 million opening weekend, and it’s going to need some major Oscar nominations to make up the gap.
