Box Office Results · March 04, 2012

Families were out in full force over the weekend to support that grouchy little tree-huggerThe Lorax’. The animated adaptation pulled in a record-breaking $70.7M, easily winning the top spot at the box office!! This marks the best opening for a Dr. Suess adaptation ever as well as the top opening of 2012, crushing the $41.2M debut ‘The Vow’ received only a few weeks ago. Take that, Channing Tatum!

Though, the teen party comedy ‘Project X’ didn’t shatter any records it did still make a pretty decent showing with $20.8M, debuting in the second position.

Also, hot off its Oscar success last weekend, ‘The Artist’ cracked the top ten over the weekend with $3.9M. This makes us happy!

Here is the estimated breakdown of the weekend totals:

1 Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax $70,700,000 $70,700,000 1
