The Lorax Breaks Box Office Records: Zac Efron & Taylor Swift Romance

Fans flocked to theaters this weekend to see Zac Efron romance Taylor Swift in Dr. Seuss’ ‘The Lorax,’ helping the movie top this weekend’s box office.

The classic children’s book made its big screen debut this weekend and earned a surprising $70.7 million, making it the highest debut so far this year.

According to our sister site Deadline.com, the movie, which stars Taylor Swift, Zac Efron and Danny Devito as the Lorax, made the best opening day ever for a Dr. Seuss movie. It made $17.4 million on Friday. Early predictions show that the film could have the best opening ever for a non-sequel animated film.

Even though Zac and Taylor didn’t actually work directly with each other when working on the film and have stated they are just friends, it looks like fans love the idea of a romance between the two stars…even if it is an on-screen animated relationship.

Will you guys go see The Lorax?
