Four animation titles, three of which have had good runs, are embedded in Thursday's box office rankings. They are as follows:.
1) Rango -- $77,262,114.
4) Mars Needs Moms -- $10,088,083,814
5) Gnomeo and Juliet -- $91,288,382
16) Yogi Bear -- $98,965,017
All but Mars is likely to lurch over the $100 million marker. Somebody is obviously going to these entertainments, which is why our conglomerates keep putting them in the marketplace. Their batting averages are pretty good.
(One other number: TAG blog goes over 2,000,000 visits this weekend. Maybe if blog were snazzier, we would have gotten their quicker. Sadly, I am low on snazz.)
