Cartoon Rat beats Bruce Willis

Posted by Janett on July 4, 2007

Bruce Willis’s Die Hard 4.0 was beaten to the top spot at the US box office by Pixar’s animated tale Ratatouille at the weekend, the latter taking an impressive $47.2m.The latest from director Brad Bird, who also wrote and directed the hugely successful The Incredibles in 2004, dominated the weekend despite a lower opening take than any Pixar film since 1998’s A Bug’s Life.

The Top Five

#1 “Ratatouille” ($47.2 million)
#2 “Live Free or Die Hard” ($33.2 million)
#3 “Evan Almighty” ($15 million)
#4 “1408” ($10.6 million)
#5 “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer” ($9 million)

Chuck Viane, head of distribution for Pixar’s partner Disney, said the movie had been up against heavier competition than, say, 1999’s Toy Story 2 or last year’s Cars. He said it was expected to do well in its second weekend, which will coincide with the July 4 holiday.
