Leave it to the vampires!
Apparently, even the animated ones are MASSIVE money-makers!
That's right, the Adam Sandler and Selena Gomez-voiced Hotel Transylvania broke box office records for the month of September by pulling in $43 million during its premiere weekend, which also made it the highest-grossing flick since The Dark Knight Rises!
Meanwhile, Joseph Gordon Levitt recovered from his last flick, Premium Rush, and its weak opening with Looper, which came in second at $21.2 million!
Not too shabby, considering it was only MADE for $30 million!
And even though it's only been released in 335 theaters, Anna Kendrick's Pitch Perfect pulled in $5.2 million, which averages to $15,560 per screen!
AH-Mazing! And so well-deserved!
Here's hoping that the buzz propels it to the top of the list when it gets released wide next weekend!
