Brave, continuing Pixar’s unblemished record of opening its movies at No. 1, also scored the second-highest June opening for an animated pic after Pixar’s Toy Story 3 ($110.3 million). Overseas, the Disney/Pixar title debuted to $13.5 million in 10 markets.
The weekend brought disappointing results for Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter. Costing $68 million to produce, the film features the storied U.S. president as a vampire hunter and is based on the novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, who also co-wrote the adapted screenplay. The film opened with $16.5 million, way below estimates.
