‘Book of Life,’ ‘Boxtrolls’ Hold Up at Box Office


‘Book of Life,’ ‘Boxtrolls’ Hold Up at Box Office

The box office is showing reasonably good returns for mid-budget indie animated features Book of Life and The Boxtrolls.

In its second weekend of release, Reel FX and Fox’s Book of Life earned $9.8 million in domestic ticket sales to bring its domestic gross to $29.9 million. That’s good for fifth place this weekend. The movie’s overseas haul this week climbed to $17.5 million, with $3.6 million coming from Mexico, where the movie is set. Against an estimated budget of $50 million, things are looking good for Book of Life.

Meanwhile, LAIKA’s The Boxtrolls sold $900,000 in tickets this past weekend — its fifth in release — for a $47.6 million domestic total. The stop-motion movie has grossed an estimated $41.5 million overseas for a total of $89 million against an estimated $60 million production budget.

A relatively quite box office stretch for VFX and animated features will get a big injection the week after next, with Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar opening Nov. 5, followed two days later by Disney’s Big Hero 6.
