Brave Is the Latest Movie About Adolescent Female Archers to Become Number One at the Box Office

Brave, the movie about a parasitic clump of red hair and the young Scottish girl it's chosen as a host, has grabbed the number one box office spot with a $66.7 million haul this weekend, making it the fifth best debut ever for a Pixar movie. It's also the second movie this year featuring an adolescent female archer as the protagonist, which, with just a few more iterations, could become its own esoteric Netflix scroll-thru genre. Even with some curmudgeonly-sounding negative reviews, Brave, Pixar's first movie with a female lead, should prove successful enough to merit as many sequels as there are phalangees on a Disney executive.
