What we learned.

1- Independent films can make money, but not often the same as a more mainstream title.

2 Pixar-Disney still rules the animated box office landscape.

3-People wanted a better close to the Entourage group.

4- Sadly, a big dumb movie will make big dumb amounts of money.

5-The Insidious name is still respectable and draws in a decent chunk of change.

6- Few things make better money than an average comedy about a foul-mouthed teddy and his man-child companion for life.

7-A predictable, but otherwise decent family film can sell.
