Puss In Boots claws the Box Office Competition

With a strong, if not blockbuster, debut the new animated comedy Puss In Boots scratched out the competition taking in $33 million. Many pundits expected more but with Halloween activities and freak weather dampening some moviegoers plans, the numbers were a little lower. However, watch for this one to hold up very well with families in the weeks ahead. The same can’t be said for the other two newbies which should both disappear quickly. The Justin Timberlake/Amanda Seyfreid sci-fi film In Time took in a lackluster $12 million while Johnny Depp’s The Rum Diary tanked with just $ 5 million. For more on all the numbers, head to Box Office Mojo here and check out the new top ten below.
