Bottom line...... This is from the Hollywood Reporter. "All the green racked up by Universal's "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas" proved too much for Paramount's "Mission: Impossible 2" as the family film surpassed the thriller on Tuesday to become the top-grossing film released this year. After 33 days in release, the Imagine Entertainment-produced "Grinch" has taken in $216.4 million, topping "M:I-2's" $215.4 million. In contrast to the speed of "Grinch," it took "M:I-2" about four months to hit the $215 million mark. The green one is proving to have some stout legs under that fur as "Grinch" knocked down $13.8 million during the weekend and was down a modest 26% from a week ago. Some industry observers have projected the final domestic total for the live-action film to land around the $250 million area" Not bad for a horrible remake huh?
