Projections: Family Titles to Top the Charts

5 Mar, 2012 By: John Latchem



In it first full week in stores, DreamWorks Animation’s Puss in Boots, distributed by Paramount, should have enough momentum to carry it to the top of the charts the week ending March 4. Its biggest competition among new releases is Paramount’s Hugo,  which earned $69.5 million at the domestic box office and recently took home five Oscars.

On the rental chart, Hugo should debut on top, with Puss in Boots also performing strongly. Fox’s In Time is expected to jump into the top five after expiration of its 28-day kiosk embargo.
