"Chicken Little" Still On Top
Disney’s first computer-animated effort is beginning to show some surprising legs at the box office, coming in at #1 for the second straight week. In its second weekend, the flick grossed about $32 million according to early studio estimates, a drop of just 20% from last weekend. Its current cume, $80 million, while less than recent Pixar films have done at comparable points in their runs (about $150 million), tops most of the recent Disney efforts such as Lilo and Stitch and Brother Bear.
Its future status at the top, however, is somewhat in doubt as the next entry in the blockbuster Harry Potter series is due to open on Friday.
