The Animated Feature has fared well among Critics also, with an 86% rating at Rotten Tomatoes. Finishing behind in second is last week's champion Paranormal Activity 3 with $18.5 million, earning $81.3 million already in two weeks.
20th Century Fox debuts in third with Justin Timberlake-starring In Time with $12 million, debuting below expectations. Reviews haven't been strong for the Action/Drama, rating 36% on the Tomotometer at Rotten Tomatoes.
Another Paramount Film, Footloose (2011) slips to fourth spot with $5.5 million - a total run so far of $38.5 million in North America - just-ahead of Johnny Depp's latest Film The Rum Diary, based on the life of Hunter S. Thompson, with $5 million.
The Ides of March still is sitting in the Top Ten in eighth spot after four weeks of release, taking-in $2.7 million. To-date, it has brought in $33.5 million, while another TIFF 2011 Gala Premiere Moneyball is in ninth spot this weekend with $2.4 million in its sixth week.
