    It is also below The LEGO Batman Movie, which began with 7.9m from 602 locations on its way to 27.4m in February 2017. However, it surpassed The LEGO Ninjago Movie, which started with 3.6m and hit 9.7m in October of that year.

    Fox's 'Alita' Leads Worst President's Day Weekend in 15 Years

    The three-day President's Day weekend last year saw the top twelve gross over $270 million, the bulk of which was due to the over $202 million three-day opening for Black Panther, accounting for nearly 74% of the combined top twelve gross. This year didn't have such a monster release, and while expectations were muted, the top twelve's combined $109.1 million makes for the worst three-day President's Day weekend since 2004.

    Leading the charge was Fox's Alita: Battle Angel, delivering $27.8 million for the three-day. Elsewhere, while Universal's release of Blumhouse's Happy Death Day 2U fell short of expectations, it has already grossed more than its production budget and WB's release of New Line's Isn't It Romantic took advantage of Valentine's Day leading into the weekend and delivered a third place finish.

    Fox's Alita: Battle Angel topped the weekend box office with ease, outperforming expectations and delivering an estimated $27.8 million over the three-day weekend with expectations to hit over $33 million for the four-day weekend. The result would push the film's five-day cume over $41 million, well ahead of the $30 million expectations for the film heading into the weekend. Of course, despite the film's over-performance, it still carries a lofty $170 million price tag with sources suggesting it needs to gross $500-550 million globally to break even, which, at this point, looks nearly impossible.

    Internationally, Alita debuted in 11 markets last weekend and expanded to 86 total markets this weekend, delivering $56.1 million for an overseas cume that now stands at $94.3 million. Leading the way this weekend was the film's opening in Russia where it brought in $6.45 million followed by openings in France ($5.87m), Mexico ($4.18m), Australia ($2.97m), Germany ($2.96m), Thailand ($2.48m), Spain ($195m), UK ($1.8m), Vietnam ($1.5m) and Italy ($1.2m). The film's top market is South Korea where it added another $2.5 million this weekend for a cume that now totals $14.75 million. Alita will be releasing in China and Japan on February 22.

    WB's The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part dipped -37.8% over the three-day and delivered an estimated $21.2 million, pushing the film's domestic cume to $62.7 million. The film is expected to do well on President's Day, looking at a four-day total topping $27 million and a domestic cume just shy of $70 million by end of day Monday. Internationally it added over $12 million this weekend from 69 markets for a global cume that is now just shy of $98 million with releases in France and Italy this coming week followed by a March 21 release in Australia.

    Warner also landed in third place with the release of New Line's Isn't It Romantic starring Rebel Wilson. The film generated an estimated $14.2 million over the three-day and is expected to push toward $16.5 million for the four-day weekend. The result would give the film a $22-23 million six-day performance following its Wednesday debut. The film received a "B" CinemaScore and played to a crowd of which 80% were aged 25 and up.

    Paramount's What Men Want landed in fourth place, dipping -40% in its sophomore session, delivering an estimated $10.9 million for the three-day and is expected to top $12.5 million for the four-day weekend, resulting in a domestic cume just shy of $38 million come end of day Monday. The film also added $2.2 million from six overseas markets this weekend for an early international cume totaling $2.5 million.

    Rounding out the top five is Universal's release of Blumhouse Productions's Happy Death Day 2U, which brought in an estimated $9.8 million for the three-day weekend and is expected to deliver just over $11 million for the four-day weekend. After opening on Wednesday this would give the horror sequel a $15+ million six-day start, which is shy of the $20+ million expectations heading into its opening.

    It's difficult to suss out just why the film fell short of expectations, as our research led us to believe industry expectations were mostly spot on. IMDb page view performance heading into the film's opening was a bit further down than we might have liked heading into release, but we chalked that up to sequels typically pacing behind their predecessors. Though, with even that being said, six-day expectations for the sequel were still well below the over $26 million the first film opened with over just three days. Of course, it's important to remember that this film is carrying just a $9 million budget. 2U received a "B" CinemaScore, matching its predecessor, while playing to a crowd that was 51% female and 41% were aged 25 and older.

    Happy Death Day 2U also got its start internationally this weekend with $11.8 million in 41 markets, led by a $2.2 million performance in South Korea followed by France ($1m), Germany ($1m), UK & Ireland ($900k), Indonesia ($900k) and Spain ($500k). The film will open in Italy and Russia on February 28 followed by a July 12 release in Japan.

    A couple milestones to note include Universal's Glass, which recently topped $100 million domestically, and WB's Aquaman, with a domestic gross over $331 million, has now topped Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to become the second highest grossing domestic release among films in the DC Extended Universe behind only Wonder Woman ($412.56m).

    Next weekend will see the wide release of Universal and DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World in over 4,000 locations. The film has been in release internationally for six weeks already, generating over $172 million from 49 markets and will arrive in theaters with expectations for a debut in line with its predecessors as Universal becomes the third different studio to release the film.

    'The LEGO Movie 2' retains UK box office lead as 'The Kid Who Would Be King' struggles


    Rank Film (Distributor) Three-day gross (Feb 15-17) Total gross to date Week
    1 The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part (Warner Bros) 2.5m 7.4m 2
    2 Instant Family (Paramount) 2m 2.5m 1
    3 How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (Universal) 1.6m 11.5m 3
    4 Alita: Battle Angel (20th Century Fox) 1.4m 5.7m 2
    5 Green Book (eOne) 736,786 5.1m 3

    Warner Bros

    The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part retained its lead at the top of the UK box office chart in its second weekend, dropping 39% with takings of 2.5m. That puts the film on 7.4m so far. In comparison, the original The Lego Movie added 6m in its second weekend and was on 21.9m at this point.

    However, this week is UK schools’ half term holiday, which should boost mid-week takings of the LEGO sequel, meaning it could still have good legs.

    The Mule added 69,000 this weekend and is up to 1.9m. Aquaman is on 22.5m, while A Star Is Born is on 30m.

    Paramount

    Instant Family, the Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne comedy, opened in second place in the chart with 2m from 536 sites, an average of 3,708. With previews, the film’s total UK bow is 2.5m. Wahlberg and Byrne both have had previous comedy successes in the UK: Wahlberg’s Daddy’s Home 2 grossed 14.4m after a 4.9m bow, while Byrne’s Bad Neighbours opened with 8.4m and ended on 16m.

    Universal

    How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World is up to 11.5m in the UK after adding 1.6m in its third weekend. That leaves it still some way behind the 17.3m and 25.5m totals posted by the franchise’s previous two films.

    Blumhouse-produced horror sequel Happy Death Day 2U opened with a 467,942 Fri-Sun this weekend. Including previews, the film’s total bow is 734,021. The figure is below the previous film’s 996,410 opening; it went on to reach 2.9m in the UK.

    Mary Queen Of Scots is up to 8.4m after adding 222,166 this time out, while Boy Erased is on 227,701 after adding 27,576.

    20th Century Fox

    In its second weekend, Alita: Battle Angel dropped 42%, with 1.4m taking it to 5.7m to date. Despite its struggles in the US and UK, the film has been boosted by its international takings.

    The Kid Who Would Be King, the Joe Cornish-directed family film from UK outfits Big Talk and Working Title, opened in a disappointing sixth place this weekend. The release took 625,758 Fri-Sun, with previews taking it to 665,491. It played in 494 screens, making for a poor-looking site average of 1,274. The film is also struggling globally, taking $23.1m (17.9m) to date.

    The Favourite, now in its seventh week, rose 13% with 282,656 taking it to 15.3m so far.

    Bohemian Rhapsody has now been on release for 17 weeks in the UK. This weekend, it added 227,344 for 53.3m to date.

    Can You Ever Forgive Me? added a further 152,598 for 1.5m so far.

    Entertainment One

    Green Book dropped 31% this weekend, adding 736,786 for 5.1m to date.

    If Beale Street Could Talk is up to 818,456 after adding 368,427 this weekend, an impressive rise of 117% on its previous session.

    Vice is up to 3.6m in the UK after posting 177,249 this weekend, while Stan & Ollie has now reached 10.1m after adding a further 95,410.

    Disney

    Glass is up to 10.3m in the UK after adding 309,717 this weekend. Marry Poppins Returns has now reached 43.5m, while Ralph Breaks The Internet is up to 18.1m.
    Sony Pictures

    Escape Room added 169,000 this weekend and has passed 2m. Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse rose 20% this weekend, adding 96,000 for a 10.3m cume.

    A Dog’s Way Home is up to 1.6m after adding 82,00, while All Is True added 75,000 and is on 603,000 after strong mid-week takings.
