On the weekend after Thanksgiving, which is historically an extremely slow movie weekend, “Tangled” earned $21.5 million to Harry’s $16.7 million, and had a much smaller drop in revenue than its competition. The weekend’s totals place the “Tangled” domestic earnings at $96.5 million after twelve days in theatres.
Strong word of mouth may be responsible the success of “Tangled” during its second weekend. Whatever the reason, Disney is enjoying its first hit independent of Pixar in almost a decade.
“Tangled” has also opened in 15 markets abroad, and has grossed $45.8 million outside of the U.S. to date.
