Kitty in Hat Watch

Puss in Boots continues to roll out overseas:

... Puss in Boots, now in 2nd place with $29.8 million for an international total of $188.2 million and $331.1 million worldwide ...

Puss continues to roll out healthy grosses, even as it winds down in the States. Since I don't know the kitty's release schedule, I haven't a clue about where hiss foreign totals will end up.

(But I'm sure that DreamWorks has a pretty strong idea ...)

At the other end of the box office spectrum, the chipmunk franchise seems to have run its course.

... In 4th place was Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, equally disappointing overseas with $13.3 million in 36 countries. Back in 2009 Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel opened with $23.4 million from 38 countries so Chipwrecked is slowly turning into the box office dud of this franchise. ...

As the wise old producer once said: "When they don't want to come see your movie, you can't stop them."

Well hopefully that will be the end of that too.

The first Chipmunk film was kinda cute, but the second was flat awful. I suppose Hollywood will never learn that you can't make a good movie out of a lousy script.
