Singing a Different ‘Toon

Leo Tolstoy once declared, “Spring is the time of plans and projects.” What are your movie plans this first full week in spring? Taking an animated road trip? Filling out college admission forms? Visitng the White House? Luckily, your local multiplex has got you covered with its creative film roster.

“Oz the Great and Powerful” continues his travels along the yellow brick road, which has lost a bit of its luster with the archaic arrival of “The Croods” who, in all their3D glory, have crashed the modern-day party, “road-tripping” all the way to U.S. and Canadian box offices #1 spot with $44.7 million. New in town, “Olympus has Fallen” but quickly risen to the impressive location of #2 with $30.5 million. Oz, meanwhile, is enjoying the box-office view at #3 with $22 million.

Audiences are still heeding “The Call” for thrilling female films, finding the number just right at fourth place and adding an additional $8.7 million to the box-office bill. The “Admission” fee proved to be a bit lacking for moviegoers, who sent the comedy to its #5 home with $6.4 million.

With the family-friendly Croods leading the way along the yellow brick road, audiences arrive at the White House doors, where Olympus may have fallen but can still hear “The Call” for a spring break from “Admission” forms, rules and regulations and just enjoy the show!

From seaside days to starry nights, may your plans for the week ahead be filled with animated, entertaining delight!
