Early 'Lorax' Box Office and more videos!  
Early Box Office and Cinemascore info from EW:
He is the Lorax, and soon he’ll be speaking for Hollywood.

In what is becoming a common occurrence this year, Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax performed even better than expected, grossing an estimated $17.4 million on Friday. That’s the best opening day ever for a Dr. Seuss adaptation, topping 2000′s How the Grinch Stole Christmas ($15.6 million). It’s also a huge victory for distributor Universal and the young production company Illumination Entertainment, the latter of which is now three for three after the box-office success of Despicable Me and Hop.

The Lorax should finish the weekend with around $60 million — the biggest opening since last November’s The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1. Also worth noting is that in a day and age when most CG-animated films cost at least $100 million (if not considerably more than that), Universal spent only $70 million on The Lorax. Its future looks bright, too, as the PG-rated movie received a solid “A” rating from CinemaScore audiences. According to the market-research firm, the movie skewed female (62 percent) and young (52 percent under the age of 25).

lol. i'm glad it has a good cinemascore too. i thought it would, even if the critics can't make heads or tails of it. their comments are all over the map.

What's going on at the end of the second video? Is Zac saying he knows someone but he doesn't recognize him?

he's saying hi to the director of the ps22 chorus and saying he saw ps22 at the oscars and they met there i guess? though the director is like i don't remember you and i'd remember you and zac is like, i thought i met you at the oscars. lol.

Those Friday BO numbers are making me happy. Hopefully it continues throughout the weekend. Pretty much everyone I know who has seen it, loved it.
