Record breaking weekend box office

I was really glad to hear this~

. . . the 2011 North American box office slump is officially over thanks to moviegoers starved for comedy. Now the official start of the 2011 Summer Movie Season has set a record for the biggest Memorial Weekend box office ever -- $275M overall for the 4-day holiday. Which easily beat 2007 as the highest grossing (when Pirates Of The Caribbean 3, and Shrek 3, and Spider-Man 3 ran 1-2-3 for $254M). And it beat last year's overall total by almost +50%.

Our family made our own contribution to this - the 3 kids went to see Kung Fu Panda 2 on Saturday and then Sudnay night the 5 of us went to the drive-in to see Pirates 4.
