Monsters, Inc. Makes $12 Million on Second Friday
(by Monsters, Inc. made $12 million on Friday, starting off strong in its second week in release. The $12 million easily sets Monsters, Inc. up to win the weekend at #1 again before it is dethroned next Friday by Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, which several analysts worldwide believe will top Titanic as the highest grossing film of all time.

Last Friday, Monsters, Inc. made $17.4 million on its way to breaking the record for the highest grossing animated opening of all time. The $12 million it made this past Friday is a respectable drop of 31%.

In its first eight days of release, Monsters, Inc. easily roared by Disney's summer animated movie Atlantis: The Lost Empire, which took an entire summer to reach its near-final box office tally of $84 million. Monsters, Inc. has made $88.6 million to date.
