Abominable, from DreamWorks Animation and China’s Pearl Studio, scaled to the top of box office mountain this weekend with an estimated $20.85 million domestically and $29.7 million overseas.
The PG-rated family film, about a teen girl (voiced by Agent of SHIELD’s Chloe Bennet) and a Yeti embarking on an epic quest, had the best opening of the year so far for an original animated film. It’s also only the third original film overall — the other two being Good Boys and Us — to debut at number one this year.
With a $75 million dollar price tag though, the film will most likely have to rely on China’s box office numbers to push it up over the top. The film will release there on Tuesday.
