On the heels of the highest-grossing February in history, the box office party looks like it will keep raging on the first weekend of March. Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, which is the second fully animated movie from Illumination Entertainment, opens at 3,728 locations, including 269 IMAX venues (a 3D theater count is not currently available). Meanwhile, found footage comedy Project X reaches 3,055 locations.
All signs indicate that The Lorax is set for a huge first place debut this weekend. The adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ environmentalist children’s book has almost the entire Despicable Me team on board, from the distributor (Universal) and animation house (Illumination) down through the main producer (Chris Meledandri), the director (Chris Renaud) and the writers (Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul).
