Horton Hears a Who! Opened this weekend!

Horton opened this weekend, and if you didn’t see it – do me a favor and go right now! We had a great opening; not crazy by Ice Age 2 standards, but pretty damn good! Hopefully there’s good word of mouth and the film holds strong for a few weeks to help us pull in a decent box office.

Ironically, we had our best opening weekend ever with the critics at a whopping 82% on Rotten Tomatoes. The critics pretty much hate everything unless it’s from Pixar (except “Cars” – which got an unusual low score for them at 77%).

If you did see the film, hopefully you also saw the new teaser for Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs! It looked great up on screen and I can’t wait to see the finished film in fabulous digital 3D!

  1. hey mike-
    love the new page! clean and professional , i like it. saw horton this weekend and was pretty blown away. once all the sound design and editing all came together it was really something spectacular. congrats on another job well done!

  2. Thanks Bobby! It’s nuts how much the final sound adds to the experience. Skywalker totally nailed it and I thought John Powell did a great job, too! Where the heck are you right now?

  3. hey man!
    i was able to land a remote animation position with ReelFX, working on Open Season 2. we’re in Atlanta right now, so i got a little home office set up. it’s really great to be animating, but i definitely miss everyone at BS. hope alls well!

  4. Hi Mike.

    Congratulations on Horton, it’s still pulled close to 20 million this weekend and you are all well into the profit zone. Beautifully done . I myself worked for House of Cool and did a 2D sequence but I was really impressed by the 3D . Wonderful stuff everybody.
