‘The Book of Life’ Opens In 3rd Place!

the-book-of-life-movie-wallpaper-2014

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!
