Projections: 'Muppets' Should Overcome 'Tattoo'

26 Mar, 2012 By: John Latchem



The top sales spot for the week ending March 25 should be a close race between Disney’s The Muppets, a kid-friendly title that grossed $88.6 million in U.S. theaters, and Sony Pictures’ thriller The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, which is based on a bestselling novel and grossed $102.5 million.

The family appeal and retail ubiquity of The Muppets should give it an edge.

The tendency of families to buy rather than rent Disney movies should push The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo to the top of the rental chart.
