Though Disney's not on there yet, get excited for this weekend !!!! Disney has Bolt coming out this weekend and lot of others as the holiday season approaches.

Disney's Outlook


Most of these films don't directly compete with Disney's market, except for Madagascar. I am curious to see what Bolt, which comes out this Friday, will gross at the Box office. Bolt has tough competition as another family-targeted movie, Twilight also comes out this weekend. Both Twilight and Bolt are expected to gross over $40 Million, though it will be a close race to see who comes in front Additionally, movies like High School Musical 3 and Madagascar will continue to be in theaters, adding to Disney's competition.

Although it's gonna be close, my guess is the Disney is gonna come out on top because Bolt will have the awesome 3-D element :)
