The Princess and the Frog Claims Number One Spot at Box Office in its First Weekend in Release

Box Office: The Princess and The Frog Leaps to the Top

Disney's princesses can still bring it: In its opening weekend, The Princess and the Frog topped the box office with $25 million. The animated film knocked out last week's champ, the underdog drama The Blind Side, which came in second and drew in $15.4 million.

Matt Damon's Invictus debuted in the third spot with $9 million, while New Moon dropped to the fourth spot with $8 million. Rounding out the top five is seasonal flick A Christmas Carol, with $6.8 million.

i'm glad that an 'old fashioned' animated movie did so well and i'm not surprised that it got the #1 spot. i think that people were waiting for it. sadly, i saw New Moon for a 2nd time in the hopes that i would see why everyone liked it so much more than the 1st...and i'm still not sold on it being better. (i liked it more than the first time i saw it though)

My daughter and I loved it. I had concerns going in about characters that looked like stereotypes, but was happy about the way they actually were developed.

Not at all surprised. :) I saw this with my mom yesterday and two minutes in I was already welling up with tears; it felt so familiar. I don't know how other Disney fangirls have received it but this one is very, very happy. I was enchanted.
