For the second weekend in a row, DreamWorks Animation’s Megamind finished atop the North American box office with a final take of $29.1 million. Its total gross now stands at $88.8 million. The drop from last weekend was a respectable 36.7%; comparatively, How to Train Your Dragon had a second weekend decline of 33.7% and Shrek Forever After declined 38.9% in its second frame.
On the other end of the animation spectrum, Paul and Sandra Fierlinger’s My Dog Tulip earned $4,250 from three theaters. The film has grossed $113,000 after eleven weekends, pushing it past many recent limited animation releases like Fear(s) of the Dark, $9.99, and Tales from Earthsea. Also, Nine Nation Animation, a collection of indie shorts that we wrote about earlier, earned $3,489 from two theaters, raising its total earnings to $12,973.
