Disney Blog: Thanksging Box Office Results

December 1st, 2008

Big Weekend at the Box Office

Hope your holiday weekend treated you well :) It certainly treated the Box Office well! According to CBS this was the second biggest revenue grossing Thanksgiving weekend in history:


1. "Four Christmases," $46.7 million.
2. "Twilight," $39.5 million.
3. "Bolt," $36.0 million.
4. "Quantum of Solace," $28.1 million.
5. "Australia," $20 million.
6. "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa," $19.6 million.
7. "Transporter 3," $18.5 million.
8. "Role Models," $7.8 million.
9. "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas," $2.2 million.
10. "Milk," $1.9 million.

Bolt is doing strong, though some estimates as of Sunday has said that Bolt would surpass Twilight :( Even so, I would guess that as the Holidays approach Bolt will continue to get lots of viewers as kids get done with school and need ways to spend their free time.

"Twilight' is still a phenomenon, but you can't really maintain that level of intensity week after week," said Paul Dergarabedian, president of box-office tracker Media By Numbers.

Hopefully the next few weekends will be even better for Bolt !!

Four Christmases was released this weekend as one of the only holiday related films of the weekend. This is part of the reason Four Chrismases did so well— it virtually had no competition. This will change in the upcoming weeks with the release of Nothing Like the Holidays on December 12th.

The next few weeks will prove interesting for Hollywood….I am excited to see how everything develops!
