The Box Office Rhumba

No animated flicks are currently within hailing distance of the box office Top Ten, but there are some pretenders.

The ever-popular Night at the Museum now occupies the fourth slot, collecting $2,290,000 on Friday. Pan's Labyrinth, expanding to 823 theatres, rakes in $1.3 million and a $13 million total (at #8).

And what's at Number One? The laugher Epic Movie ($6,820,000 on 2801 screens), followed by Smokin' Aces and Catch and Release.

Sunday Update: Third Place Night now totals $216.7 million, while Pan's Labyrinth adds screens and gross ($16.2 million to date) and comes in at #8 (down a notch).

Arthur and the Invisibles plunges 46% for a total of $11.5 million and a mid-list slot at #18. Happy Feet continues to decelerate, taking in $900,000 for a total of $192 million as it clings to #24.

And remember Happily N'Ever After? (Nobody else does, either.) It's now almost gone, standing at #30 with a lacklustre $14.8 million.
