According to the Hollywood Reporter, tracking figures heading into the weekend were clocking the film at $50-$55 million. But the film had more gas than expected and sped into the second-best June opening ever for an animated film after Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3..
“I think there is this wonderful aura that comes with Disney/Pixar movies. They play almost like fanboy pics. Everyone rushes out Friday to see them,” Disney worldwide president of distribution Chuck Viane said.

Super 8 opens nationwide tomorrow and is expected to battle the mutants of X-Men: First Class.
