For Moviegoers with
Kung Fu Panda 3 kicked its way
to the top of the North American
box office with a respectable US$41
million, according to Rentrak esti-
The DreamWorks Animation film
cost a reported US$145 million to
make and earned a strong "A Cin-
emaScore from audiences---70 per
cent of whom were families.
"It s a bold move to take a fran-
chise which has had great success
in that summer corridor and move
it into late January, which is generally
considered a very slow time," Ren-
trak s senior media analyst Paul Der-
garabedian said. "It also filled a huge
void in the marketplace."
The first film opened to US$60.2
million in 2008 and the second to
US$47.7 million in 2011.
For Fox, switching up the release
was a no-brainer after seeing the
successes of The Lego Movie and
last year s The SpongeBob Movie:
Sponge Out of Water in this time
"We know that when the market
conditions are right, this business
really is a 365-day-a-year business,"
said Chris Aronson, Fox s domestic
distribution chief. "We saw an
opportunity and we grabbed it. We re
thrilled with the results."
There are a number of winter hol-
idays coming up where kids will be
out of school and Zootopia, 2016 s
next big animated release, doesn t
open until March 4.
The animated sequel also fared
much better than the weekend s
other new openers, like Disney s
Coast Guard adventure The Finest
Hours, which debuted in fourth place
with US$10.3 million.
Based on a real life 1952 rescue
mission, The Finest Hours stars Chris
Pine, Casey Affleck and Ben Foster
and cost around US$80 million to
Dergarabedian thinks that the nau-
tical theme might have seemed too
similar to the recently released In
the Heart of the Sea for audiences.
The opening is similar to last year s
McFarland, USA, another fact-based
drama from Disney, which opened
with US$11 million in late February
and went on to earn US$44.4 mil-
lion. • Continue on Page A33
