$300 Million Club

Kung Fu Panda Too hasn't been a chartbuster stateside, but overseas it's galloping along quite nicely.

... Through Thursday, the 3D toon’s foreign cume was $305 million. ...

Domestically, the panda is at $148 million, which means there's $443 million in the tote bag on a worldwide basis.

KungFoo panda 2 is as bad as the first one. Trite, unoriginal, and rather shallow.

That's ridiculous. The original Kung Fu Panda is among the best CG animation put out by Dreamworks or anyone else . The sequel is ok. It's a sequel. What do you expect ?

Glad that KFP 2 is doing well overseas. Go Dreamworks !

The opposite of how Winnie the Pooh (* ahem *) is doing at the foreign box-office . Has anyone noticed that Pooh has only made $6,400,000 in the foreign release to date. (in Europe, and some Latin American markets).

Maybe I'm jumping the gun to bring up Pooh now, but that disappointing foreign box-office take , along with the fact that I'm seeing hardly any adverts for Pooh in the States leading up to it's rapidly approaching July 15 release date , along with the fact that they are opening Pooh the same weekend as Harry Potter , well ... if someone high up at Disney Corp. didn't intentionally make the decision to kill-off the last chances of hand-drawn animation surviving at Disney then they might as well have ...

So, having virtually ensured the lacklustre box-office performance of Pooh , it will be used as one more nail (the last nail ?) in the coffin of hand-drawn animation at Disney.
