"Puss in Boots," the "Shrek" spinoff, wowed audiences across America this weekend. The animated family film released on Friday raked in more than $34 million.
Families made up much of the movie-goer crowd as well as the Hispanic demographic, which comprised 35 percent of ticket sales.
Actors Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek play the lead characters in the adventure kid-friendly comedy.
Another film which entered theaters this weekend, "In Time," starring Justin Timberlake brought in $12 million domestically. The sci-fi flick fared better overseas, earning $14.5 million.
"The Adventures of Tintin," directed by Steven Speilberg took the cake with over $55 million ticket sales internationally.
Surprisingly, Johnny Depp's latest leading role in the Hunter S. Thompson adaptation of "The Rum Diary," did not have high ticket sales. The movie only earned $5 million and cost production $50 million to create.
