I don't know about you, but I've been curious about Tangled's numbers. After all, this is what will influence whether or not Disney will eventually return to some animated fairy tales (live action ones are in development) which has been upsetting some folks. From Examiner.com: 'Tangled' triumphs worldwide with $395 million -- and climbing:
Of all the movies that were thrown at audiences in the Hollywood holiday theatrical push, so far Disney's Rapunzel-based Tangled ranks No. 1 worldwide at the boxoffice.And that still doesn't include DVD and Blu-ray sales. The film is slated to release on March 29th, by the way. This also means that Tangled will come close to doubling or even more than doubling the worldwide tickets sales that Princess and the Frog made, once again not including home movie sales for either. Tangled has already surpassed the latter's full gross including DVD sales.
Boasting international boxoffice receipts of $214.02 million and $395 in ticket sales worldwide, The Numbers reports that the animated tale is expected to climb to well over $500 million -- and the film has yet to open in the UK, Japan, Spain, and Scandanavian countries and other parts of the world.
And, no, the comparison didn't include Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1. But the numbers are impressive.
