US Box Office: March 9 – 11, 2012

The Lorax maintained its impressive lead at the US box office this weekend, grossing an estimated $39.1M. The animated take on Dr. Seuss beloved children’s novel has earned a tidy $121M in a mere ten days.

Disney’s new fantasy-adventure John Carter landed in second place, pulling in a modest $30.6M. The Andrew Stanton-directed tentpole, featuring the heroic protagonist of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Barsoom series of novels, divided critics but surpassed analysts expectations.
