Between Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Brave took in another $19,612,370 towards its total earnings of $173,969,341. As of now, the film has taken a step ahead of WALL-E, with an $11 million financial lead. The film has also beaten A Bug’s Life‘s total gross and will soon overtake Cars 2 and Toy Story. Hitting the $200 million mark shouldn’t be an issue, either.
However, the film’s future success hinges upon how it will fare against direct competition like Ice Age: Continental Drift. Despite mixed reviews, Ice Age will likely be extremely popular with the same family audience that Brave appeals to. If all goes well, though, Brave should beat out WALL-E‘s domestic total and potentially that of Cars. Check back soon for updates.
