Disney's 'Cinderella,' 'Big Hero 6' top Chinese box office

"Big Hero 6" came in second with $23M, totaling $66M after three weeks. What a one-two punch from Disney.

'Puss in Boots' Box Office Win

'Puss in Boots' Box Office Win

The "Shrek" spinoff "Puss in Boots" landed on all fours, opening with an estimated $34 million to lead the box office. The DreamWorks 3-D animated film, distributed by Paramount Pictures, proved the popular character voiced by Antonio Banderas was a big enough draw outside the "Shrek" franchise... But the largest estimated opening didn't happen in North America. "The Adventures of Tintin," which is being distributed overseas by Sony Pictures and Paramount Pictures, opened in 19 international markets and hauled in $55.8 million.

Senh: $56M for the Peter Jackson produced and Steven Spielberg directed "The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn" is awesome. It's good to see that two of the greatest directors of our time working together on an animated film is generating great results critically and commercially. It'll probably do even better in the States.
