Her spectacular voice restores The Burlesque Lounge to its former glory, though not before a charismatic entrepreneur (Eric Dane) arrives with an enticing proposal…

‘Tangled’ Scores Biggest Thanksgiving Weekend Opening Day Ever

Disney's milestone 50th animated feature Tangled managed to score $11.5 million on its first day of release, earning the highest Thanksgiving holiday opening day grosses ever. Debuting on Wednesday, Tangled managed to beat the previous highest Thanksgiving weekend opener Toy Story 2, which went onto score $57.3 million over the course of its entire holiday weekend back in 1999.

Tangled is expected to make close to $65 million over the course of its five-day holiday weekend. That is impressive, but the numbers won't be high enough to beat the Hogwarts juggernaut Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1, which actually won the Wednesday box office with $14.4 million. It is expected to make more than $90 million over the course of its five-day weekend. That would bring its total box office grosses to date up to $230 million.
