My five year old son, who hates movie theaters and will wait patiently for the DVD, announced yesterday that he really wanted to see Brave in the theater. He loved it! He is already asking if he can see it again. I imagine our household of seven will help boost the intake numbers for the opening weekend. Brave managed to convince me to not hold a grudge against Pixar for their Cars 2 disaster. For our family, Brave was entertaining for both kids and adults.

Despite garnering mixed reviews, it looks like Pixar will enjoy its 13th straight #1 opening at the box office. Although early predictions had it going for as low as $55 million, it's now looking like Brave should end up much higher at around $70 million (Madagascar 3 opened to $60.3 million). Those worried that Pixar was going to fall flat with a "princess" film - it's not going to happen.

Now that Madagascar 3 has taken the top spot two weeks in row - will Pixar be able to match that success with the first female-driven film in their history? A faction are grumbling this is too "Disneyfied" for Pixar by featuring yet another princess but I say that this looks like another hit - from what I've seen from the trailers both the characters and setting look amazing. I was disappointed the studio decided to go with Cars 2 instead of an original film last year and I'm hoping Brave can make up for lost time.
