Opening Weekend: Wall-E

Will Pixar keep going with their number one spots? Will this do as well as The Incredibles or as low as Ratatouille? Is it still ok to compare this to Short Circuit?

I think this is a hard one. Like Ratatouille this has been getting stellar reviews across the board and I think the general public likes robots more than cooking rats.  I'm gonna go with 60-70.

Go Wall-E!  With the reviews and Pixar's track record, I'm thinking 60million+.

the two tracking sources have this at 50 and 70 ::)

The AICN gush could push some tentative fanboys over the edge and there is the usual gamut that turns out for any pixar film.  its also animated sci-fi which tends to bomb at the BO.  Even so if Kung-fu Panda can do 60+ i think this will do 70+

Early words seems to point to the biggest pixar opening ever.  Best animated midnight showing of all time and sell outs around the country.

It's getting great ratings on metacritic and rottentomatoes, 92 and 97, respectively. Pretty cool.

Friday estimates are coming in at about $23,000,000. Looks like it will be close to $70.
