Audiences Satisfy their Appetite for Animation

Beneath a magnificent, box-office skyline, the weekend profitably produced “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2” big to be contained. In a race that featured actual racing cars, the animated film found a sunny spot at the top of the domestic box office, blowing away the competition in the most colorful way with $35 million. “Prisoners,” who dramatically held the #1 box-office spot hostage last weekend, found a thrilling but safe home at #2 with $11.3 million. Director Ron Howard’s fast-paced film had its audience making a mad “Rush” to the local multiplex, coming in third at the finish line with $10.3 million. Romance and comedy were patiently waiting in the “Baggage Claim” area, this week known as the #4 spot, with $9.3 million. Writer-director-actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt introduced “Don Jon” to happily-ever-after possibilities from the romantic #5 place with $9.0 million.
Pornography, prison and peril mixed with a chase and a race (and a touch of comedy) but couldn’t compete with family-friendly entertainment, as our favorite “foodaholics” found success quite satisfying.
From seaside days to starry nights, may your appetite for entertainment be satisfied at a movie theater near you…
