'Meet the Robinsons' comes in second

“Meet the Robinsons” will come in second at the domestic box office, according to weekend estimates. Here are the top seven:

1. “Blades of Glory,” $33 million
2. “Meet the Robinsons,” $25.1 million
3. “300,” $11.2 million
4. “TMNT,” $9.2 million
5. “Wild Hogs,” $8.4 million
6. “Shooter,” $8 million
7. “Premonition,” $5.1 ($39.3 million to date)

In March 2005, “Robots” opened with about $36 million. The movie went on to earn $128 million through the domestic box office and $261 million worldwide. Shreveport’s William Joyce served as producer and production designer of “Robots.”

Joyce was executive producer of “Meet the Robinsons.” The movie is based on his picture book “A Day with Wilbur Robinson.”

It will be interesting to see if the movie’s digital 3-D version plays a factor in its lifespan at the box office.

“Premonition” was shot in northwest Louisiana during early 2006.
