Movies: Tangled exceeded expectations at the box office. Although originally expected to earn between $35-40 million in the box-office over the 5-day Thanksgiving weekend, Disney’s Tangled scored an estimated $49.1 million over the 3-day Thanksgiving weekend and collected a whopping $69 million since opening on Wednesday. This is the second-largest Thanksgiving opening weekend in history, right behind the $80 million 5-day and $59 million three-day opening weekend of 1999 for Toy Story 2. Tangled also tallied $13.8 million internationally. Disney head of distribution Chuck Viane said the studio would have been happy if Tangled had matched the $34 million debut of its hit Enchanted over Thanksgiving 2007. Tangled not only shot past that mark but also challenged Harry Potter for the No. 1 spot. Needles to say, the performance came as a bit of a surprise. It would seem Disney’s marketing team knew what they were doing after all. Toonzone.net.
