Two Peas ...

... in the proverbial pod.

Life of Pi
Release Date: November 21, 2012
Domestic Gross: $64,159,406
Production Budget: $120 million

Rise of the Guardians
Release date: November 21, 2012
Domestic Gross: $63,941,823
Production Budget: $145 million

By another name, two 3-D extravaganzas, rolled out on the same date, both collecting similar amounts of money at the box office.

Trouble is, Guardians is performing below the DreamWorks Animation box officer norm, while Pi is doing relatively well (if not better) for an Ang Lee feature.

(Here is a pro followed by a con argument regarding Rise of the Guardians grosses.)

Wait, Pi cost 120 million to make? why is no one calling this a disappointment? Is it doing well internationally?
