$63.5 Million Record Estimated Opening
for Monsters, Inc.

(November 4, 2001 - by Weekend estimates are in and Disney/Pixar's Monsters, Inc. had one of the biggest weekend openings of the year, bringing in an estimated $63.5 million and blowing away analyst predictions. Families swarmed theaters as showings continually sold out in theaters nationwide. The $63.5 million easily beat Shrek's opening of $42.3 last May even though Shrek was featured on more screens.

Monsters, Inc. has now set a milestone with the biggest 3-day opening for an animated film ever. In addition, 100% of moviegoers who took a studio-sponsored exit poll said that Monsters, Inc. was either "excellent" or "very good".

Final weekend box office numbers will be released Monday night and reported by Digital Media FX on Tuesday morning.
