Box Office Speculation

... courtesy of the Times and others.

"Dr. Seuss' The Lorax" is primed to rake in lots of green at the box office this weekend.

The 3-D animated film, based on a popular 1971 book by Dr. Seuss, could debut with as much as $50 million, according to those who have seen pre-release audience surveys ...

Apparently the tut-tutting of Lou Dobbs won't put a damper on the weekend party.

This will mark a rebound of sorts for animated cartoons. Especially if you consider The Adventures of Tintin an animated cartoon.

Add On: The L.A. Times offers an overview of the movie's critical reception, and rotten tomatoes has it in negative territory, although that might change as the critics weigh in.

And then there is the next Illumination Entertainment property being teased on the YouTube.

I want to see where this leaves John Carter a week from now.

When Maltin dislikes an animated film that's not a good sign.
