‘Brave’ Rakes in $24.5M

Looks like this Scottish warrior picked up some money-making skills too. Pixar’s latest, Brave, brought in $24.5 million on Friday night alone—putting it in the running to be the No. 1 movie this weekend. Although it’s not quite as big an opening as the one for Pixar’s last offering, Cars 2, Brave still fared well for a nonsequel, and the film is expected to bring in $67 million during the weekend. In second place was Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, which brought in $6.7 million, and Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted slipped into third place, with $6.1 million. The dramedy Seeking a Friend for the End of the World disappointed, bringing in just $1.3 million.
