Now with tasty Add On.
The good news is, there are two animated features in the Top Ten!
The bad news is, they're in the middle of the pack and could be making more money! The Nikkster, as per usual, has early tallies ...

Add On: I note, sadly, that the cartoons have now shifted, and have lower estimates on Ms. Finke's site than they did when I first posted them. Not good.
Add On: B.O. Mojo tells us that that the Milne bear ended up with $8 million, while John Lasseter's return to the director's chair fetched $8,344,000. (On a per-theater average, Winnie the Pooh had the edge, but the talking cars had lots more screens.)
