Dr. Seuss “The Grinch” is looking to top the box office this weekend.
“The Grinch” is expected to take the number one spot at the box office with an estimated $67 million on it’s debut from 4,141 locations in North America. Beat last week’s number one “Bohemian Rhapsody” which earned $29 million on it’s second weeks.
From the Friday screening, “The Grinch” already took the number one spot, earning more than $18 million and beat another openers this weekend, JJ. Abrams “Overlord” and Sony’s “The Girls In The Spider’s Web: A New Dragon Tattoo Story” which took number 3 and number 4 spot.
Directed by Scott Mosier and Yarrow Cheney ,“The Grinch” tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous holiday spirit. Funny, heartwarming, and visually stunning, it’s a universal story about the spirit of Christmas and the indomitable power of optimism. Academy Award nominee Benedict Cumberbatch lends his voice to the infamous Grinch, also feature Rashida Jones, Kenan Thompson, Cameron Seely, and Angela Lansbury, with Pharrell Williams narrating and music by Dany Elfman.
