Bone Has Terrible Friday Opening
(by digitalmediafx.com) Monkey Bone opened to a poor reception
on Friday when the new live action mixed with stop motion animation
movie failed to make even $1 million and is destined to finish
the weekend with under $3 million.
by 20th Century Fox, Monkey Bone is a PG-13 rated comedy
about a cartoonist who goes into a coma and has to team up with
one of his creations to save his own life.
Monkey Bone made under $800,000, failing to make it into
the Top 10 films for Friday even though it was a new release.

second big disaster involving animation in the past year. Titan

is credited as one of the main reasons that Fox's then movie chief,
Bill Mechanic, was dismissed. The Titan A.E. Box Office
disaster also resulted in the closure of Fox Animation Studios.
