Now with vitamin-packed, life-affirming Add Ons.
Bolt surges Friday to Friday.
Not that you wouldn't expect it, what with the white shepherd's fan base out of school for the holidays. But still in all, the Disney flick is now nipping at Twilight's heels as Vince Vaughn and Resse Witherspoon lead the parade with Four Christmases. (America does love those holiday comedies, no matter what the reviewers say.)
Down in the fifth position, Madagascar 2 makes off with $5,750,000 and zooms past the $150 million mark. DreamWorksAnimation has another nice little money maker on its hands.
Add On: More analysis of the Turkey Day weekend here.

Glad tidings for the holidays, hmm?
Add On Too: And the doggy lands in second overall ... and third on a per-theatre basis. $67 million (rounded) after two weekends.
And in the sixth position, our animal friends from Mad Deux take in $14.5 million, for a grand domestic total that nudges against $160 million (again rounded).
It is a good thing to be in the animated feature business, yes?
