    It was a ten-year journey for animator Tomm Moore, who was as shocked as anyone when, after submitting his first feature The Secret of Kells at the last possible minute, the 95% hand-drawn film earned an Annie nomination (the only indie film to do so) followed by an Oscar nomination for best animat...

I thought I was safe with my estimate of $1 billion worldwide ($400 m domestic, $600 foreign). But Avatar is already passing $800 million!
