CatCF August 12 - 14 box office update
According to estimates from Box Office Mojo, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory earned another $7.2 million this weekend, boosting its total North American gross to a delicious $183 million. That already makes it Burton's second most successful film after Batman, and it's on track to break through the $200 million barrier before it leaves theaters. Worldwide, the movie has already earned over $250 million. Why should we care about the film's success? Well, the better Charlie does, the more freedom and power it gives Burton with his future projects. And that's good news for everyone.
