Despite critic reviews that were less than what Pixar is used to, their latest movie, Brave, did very well at the box office this weekend. So, after this, exactly how many No. 1 movies does Pixar have under its belt?
“Brave” didn’t receive the type of critical response that Pixar is used to, but audiences don’t seem to care. The animated family adventure earned $24.5 million on Friday night, putting it on track for $66 million or more by Sunday night. That gives Pixar its 13th straight number one film at the box office.
At this point, I feel like no matter what the critics say, Pixar will always own the box office every time another of their movies comes out.
Have you seen Brave yet?

I’m a HUGE fan of the first Monster’s Inc. (Yes, I cried at the end of it, deal with it!) so to hear that not just one, but FOUR new trailers of the upcoming sequel ‘Monsters University’ were released is great news! Actually, these four clips are apparently different cuts of the full teaser trailer, set to be shown before the movie, Brave, coming out this weekend. But I know it’s hard to wait that long, so start watching below!
You can watch the rest of the clips over on the Monster’s University Facebook page.
It used to be that when I thought of Pixar, I thought of this unstoppable movie-making machine that couldn’t be stopped. Movie after movie, Pixar just got better and better. While I still think highly of Pixar, the studio isn’t looking too good ratings-wise. Reviews for Pixar’s upcoming CG animated movie, Brave, have been trickling in, and on Rotten Tomatoes, the current score is 73%. This is a “Fresh” rating, but what happened to the days when Pixar had no movies that went below 90%?
My heart sunk when I saw Pixar get its first “Rotten” rating with Cars 2, and I know Rotten Tomatoes isn’t always an accurate indication of a movie’s quality (especially when not all reviews have come in), but I’m starting to feel this way about Brave. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still excited to see the movie, but the Disney fan in me is hoping the magic of Pixar doesn’t fade away.
What do you think of the Brave’s score so far?
