'YOGI BEAR' makes only $4.6M Friday; 'TRON LEGACY' rakes in $18M

By Michael Cavna



More people have viewed a darkly parodic online video of Yogi Bear this week than have seen the new feature film, based on Friday's box office.

Warner Bros.'s CGI/live-action hybrid "Yogi Bear" grossed $4.6-million domestically Friday, according to estimates from boxofficemojo.com.

"Boo Boo Kills Yogi" -- the violent two-minute-plus spoof of a scene from "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford" -- had amassed more than 2.6-million views as of Saturday. Maryland native Edmund Earle, a New York-based animator, posted on the video on YouTube midday Monday.

The debut of Buena Vista's "Tron Legacy" -- which had midnight showings Thursday -- topped Friday's domestic box office with $18-million.
