Box Office Mojo.
Topping the North American box office, Brave is Pixar's thirteenth consecutive No. 1 opening. The film's $80 million debut mauled analyst predictions that it would open at between $55 million and $60 million domestically.
Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted slipped to No. 2 (as expected), but still pulled in a respectable $20.2 million in the U.S. and Canada, bringing its worldwide total to $365.9 million.
