CGI Extravaganzas

Happy Feet is still in the Top Box Office Ten, but let's put that to one side for a moment. Four of the top ten films this holiday season are heavy with CGI. And surely in this time of production layoffs, that is a good happenstance, no?...

Night at the Museum resides at #1.

Charlotte's Web sits at #5.

Eragon holds on to #6.

And Happy Feet now totals $155,756,000 in domestic box office as it clings to #9.

I'd say the above box office performers are something from which animators, lighters, tech directors and the rest of us should draw comfort.

Update: Happy Feet finishes at #8 for the holiday weekend (through the 24th) with $159.1 million tucked in its pouch.

Night at the Museum finishes the three-days with $30.8 million (a robust #1, considering the tepid reviews); Charlotte's Web lands at #5 while Eragon plunks down at #6. Merry Christmas and the happiest of box office returns!
