Norm of the North, which opened at #6 its first weekend, then dropped to #9 in the second, has now dropped from the Top Ten. Unsurprising when the Panda rolls into town.
To date, Norm has taken in about $15 million at the box office.
Add On: Kung Fu Panda 3 opened Friday in the Middle Kingdom, day-and-date with the U.S release, and industry estimates have it at 107M yuan, or $16.3M for the first day. Unofficial numbers from today lift the current cume to $40-$43M through Saturday, including previews from last weekend. The opening of KFP3 is now poised to become the biggest three-day bow ever for an animated title in China.
