In the animation department, G-Force clings to the tenth position, with $109 million in the Disney ruck sack, while Ponyo closes in on $10 million at #15. (And will probably edge past the $11 million cume of Miyazaki 's previous top domestic grosser.)

Weekend's ticket sales were horrifyingly good, up as much as 38% over the same weekend a year ago. Summer 2009 is now tied with 2007 as the best summer ever at the domestic B.O., with revenues approximately matching last summer's total of $4.16 billion. And with Labor Day weekend yet to come, revenues will easily zoom pass that mark ...
The animated G-Force takes in $2.8 million at the weekend box office to run its total to $112 million. Go, guinea pigs, go!
