Puss in Boots Wins Box Office in Opening Weekend

Box Office: Puss in Boots Claws Its Way to the Top

Animated cats earned box office glory this weekend, as the Shrek spin-off Puss in Boots came in first with a $34 million haul in its first week of release for the biggest Halloween weekend opening ever. It beat last weekend's box office winner, Paranormal Activity 3, which came in second with $18.5 million. Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried's futuristic thriller In Time, which was also new this weekend, came in third with $12 million. Footloose hung on to its fourth place spot with 5.4 million. Finally, new release The Rum Diary, starring Johnny Depp, just barely squeaked into the top five with a disappointing total of $5 million.
