Reel FX’s latest animated film, The Book of Life, opened in 3rd place over the past weekend. The film (which features the voices of many stars such as Zoe Saldana, Diego Luna, and Channing Tatum) grossed $17 million, which to my surprise was much less than what I thought it’d gross. But, it’s still early.

Did you see it? Did you like it? If you didn’t see it, do you plan to?

I definitely want to see it, although I’ll wait for it to come to DVD. I just can’t get over the fact that this colorful and creative film came from the same studios that made Free Birds!

Finding Nemo is a film that I’ll always cherish. Not because it’s so good (which it is), but it was the first movie I ever saw in the theaters. I’m not someone who goes to the¬†theaters much, so I was very excited to see a film in the theaters for the first time!

The film, as you all know, is about a father clownfish named Marlin, voiced by Albert Brooks, who teams up with a royal blue tang with short-term memory loss, named Dory, voiced by Ellen DeGeneres, to find his son, Nemo, voiced by Alexander Gould, who has been “fish-napped” by Australian divers.

Wow, what a wordy synopsis!

So, are y’all excited?

‘The Boxtrolls’ Opens At #3!

LAIKA’s latest offering (after Caroline and ParaNorman), The Boxtrolls, has opened up in the #3 spot in the weekend box office. The film about a boy who grows up with a bunch of trolls named the Boxtrolls, opened up with a $17 million gross in the US/Canada box office. Against a $60 million budget, the film may prove to be financially successful in the weeks to come. And with the reviews slightly leaning towards the positive side, that may happen sooner than later.

Have you seen the film? What did you think of it? If not, do you plan to see it?

Pixar-Forgotten/Minor Characters #4: The Lady with the Kids

Monsters, Inc. is my favorite Pixar film! I feel that the premise is super creative and nigh every aspect of the film is perfect!

Released in 2001, the film was about a fictional monster world in which the energy of the world was powered by human children’s screams. In the energy company, Monsters, Inc., trained scarer monsters would travel through scientifically advanced doors that allowed them to enter the human world and scare kids. The screams from the kids would generate power for the company and the monster world.
