Despite the fact that it got disappointing reviews, calling it the weakest Pixar entry since Cars (and maybe even weaker than that), Brave (a film I admit I couldn’t even feign an interest in watching, like curling) was, no surprise, the No. 1 film this weekend, and is expected to do extremely well at the box office like all other Pixar films.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Slayer was, on the other hand, not so surprisingly, a box office disappointment, and negative word of mouth guarantees that it won’t be around much longer.
