Speaking of Coraline, which was released in theaters last Friday (Feb. 6th), it debuts at #3 on this weekend's Box-Office...

It was pretty much all good news for Coraline, which raked in an impressive average of $7,105 per screen. Henry Selick's adaptation of Neil Gaiman's book came in third for the weekend, better than expected, and much better, on a per-screen basis, than other stop-motion animation films like Wallace And Gromit: The Curse Of The Were-Rabbit. (Here's a handy chart.) Also, more than 70 percent of the movie's take came from 3-D screens, proving that people were willing to go out of their way and pay extra to see it in the best format.

‘Coraline’ opens well, film leader predicts big things

The opening weekend box-office take for the Oregon-made film “Coraline” hints at a possible long run.

The film, produced by Portland-base Laika, earned $16.8 million during its first weekend, according to Portland-based Rentrak Corp., exceeding expectations by at least $6 million. The film, which opened in 2,299 theatres, averaged $7,329 per screen.

The stop-motion animated 3D feature earned good reviews. The Web site, which compiles film and music reviews, reported that among 36 reviews, “Coraline” averaged a score of 80, out of 100. The figure marks the third highest rating among the 43 widely released films that have opened in the last several weeks.

Animated films that receive good reviews often enjoy longer shelf lives than live-action movies because filmgoers are more likely see them more than once.

“When the reviews started coming in, it was obvious that 'Coraline' was going to be a darling for the critics — which was good enough news,” said Vince Porter, executive director of the Governor’s Office of Film & Television. “Now that the film has exceeded everyone’s expectations, it seems probable that ‘Coraline’ will be a hit for Laika. I’m confident that five years from now we will look back on this film as the beginning of something big for Oregon’s animation industry.”

“Coraline” portrays an 11-year-old girl’s foray into an alternate world. It was beaten at this week’s box office only by “He’s Just Not That Into You,” which earned $27.8 million, and the film “Taken,” which earned $20.5 million.

Weekend Box Office: Audiences Into 'Into You', 'Coraline'

The latter, Henry Selick's Coraline, settled for third with $16.3 million. That may not seem like much, but consider that the film had no brand (with the possible exception of the "from the makers of A Nightmare Before Christmas label) and that the marketing did little to hide its deep-seated creepiness.
