Puss in Boots Trounces Justin Timberlake, Johnny Depp at Box Office
The cute kitty crusader slayed 'em all!
Puss in Boots, the animated Shrek spinoff with Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek in leading voiceover roles, was a box office hit its opening weekend, nabbing the number one spot with $34 million in ticket sales.
The family flick easily beat other new films over the weekend -- including the Justin Timberlake sci-fi film In Time, which earned a disappointing $12 million, landing in the number 3 spot. Johnny Depp's The Rum Diary flopped with just $5 million and a number 5 ranking its first weekend out
Last week's huge number one hit, Paranormal Activity 3, earned another $18.5 million, placing it second and bringing its overall earnings so far to $81.3 million; at number four this weekend, Footloose grabbed an additional $5.4 million.
