‘Abominable’ Scales To The Top Of The Box Office


DreamWorks Animation’s Abominable easily scaled the box office chart over the weekend with a winning $20.9 million from 4,242 theaters. The PG-rated pic chronicles the adventures of a teenager (Chloe Bennet) and her two friends (Tenzing Norgay Trainor, Albert Tsai) who embark on a 2,000-mile adventure across China to the majestic Himalayas in order to reunite a young Yeti, whom they name Everest, with his family. All the while, they must stay one step ahead of a wealthy man (Eddie Izzard) intent on recapturing the magical creature and an eager zoologist (Sarah Paulson).
