Box Office Top Five Countdown (August 26-28)

The weekend literally spoke of a single, almost beyond expectations, animated film! Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax saw a grand opening at the box office this weekend. It has reportedly done a business involving around $ 70. 7 million USD in its opening weekend. This 3-D tale of environment and its balances went beyond the industry’s expectations by raking such high earnings. Critics have been reported as saying that may be the people really were so in need of a family movie. However, it is not just the views coming from the critic. The Universal Pictures, who are very famous for their near accurate estimates, have agreed to this by means of data provided by them. As far as an estimate goes from distributors Universal Pictures, Project X, the other release for this weekend successfully raked a standard sum of around $ 20. 8 million USD. Project X was an exact opposite to Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax . Whereas the former one was an R rated party flick, the later one was a full on family entertainment.

Getting into this weekend the drama of mixed romantic genre, the Vow, held the highest box office grasping record. It had successfully raked in around $ 40 million USD after it opened. Again, critics are of the view that Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax managed such a booming figure in terms of rakes because this year, that is 2012, saw hardly any family movie. And with school breaks for spring coming up there are a lot of families vouching for films of the entertainment genre that can be view by and with al ages. Besides this movie also had an environmental message added to it therefore many schools took break excursions of bulk students to view the movie.

The message sent out by the movie is mainly on the need to save trees. It is featuring the voices of Danny DeVito and Ed Helms. The Lorax is a character from the famous 1971 work of Dr. Seuss’s children’s book. The story line is about this very fuzzy, cuddly and huggable orange creature that is out on a mission to save trees. Seemingly audience has grown very fond of Dr. Seuss’s adaptations , the 2008 release, Horton Hears a Who also raked in a surprising $ 300 million USD with an approximate of $ 48 million USD investment.

Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax is definitely worth watching!
