    even better, its a good sign when movies make there budget on opening weekend..because everything else is just profit and they wont have to make any of it up on DVD sales

    Indeed... this is great news. And the best part? This isn't even the full box office potential... it's just the domestic! Once it hits Europe, it's going to erupt! More Muppets? That's the thing we were hoping to hear. I think a TV show actually has a strong possibility now. Hopefully it finds a night where it can flourish.

    And the best part? It left the generic looking CGI kiddy fare completely in the dust.

    It's #2 in Canada according to Empire Theatre's website. I haven't got to the movie yet, I want to see about taking my niece to it on the weekend.

    THIS ROCKS!! I'm so excited! I hope this will not only bring more Muppet movies or TV shows/specials but I also hope it will get Disney to release more old school Muppet things on DVD as well as maybe build a "Muppet Studios" attraction at one of their theme parks. TOTAL MUPPET DOMINATION!!!! :):D;):hungry::crazy::sing:
