This weekend was a prime example of the unexpected nature of the box office.
Dreamworks Films’ latest effort, The Croods was among the year’s first chart-topping animated films, with a performance over 40 million in sales. Distantly behind that was Anoine Fuqua’s Olympas Has Fallen, which charted at #2 with 30 million. James Franco’s uber-raunchy Spring Breakers made its small (albeit noticeable) mark with 5 million, which is a feat considering the film’s content and director Harmony Korine’s track record.
