    Well it is from the filmmakers of 'The Lord of the Rings' & 'The Hobbit' and had a budget of $100 million, so I guess yes.

    China box office: record-breaking 'Aquaman' adds $93m, overtakes 'Justice League'

    While the week of Dec 10-16 recorded a slight week-on-week drop of 2.4%, the Chinese box office inched closer to the groundbreaking milestone of RMB60bn ($8.72bn) as long as it could deliver another $218m within the next 15 days before the year closes.

    Warner Bro’s Aquaman maintained a solid momentum in its second week and easily topped again with $93.1m, accounting for more than 70% of the week’s total box office. Its 10-day total of $186.2m has made it the fifth biggest foreign film and the 13th overall of 2018. It has also surpassed Justice League to become the biggest DC superhero film in China.

    Sony’s Venom added $1.2m for $266.5m after 38 days from an extended run. It is now the seventh biggest film of 2018 and the 15th biggest film of all time; followed by Disney animation Ralph Breaks The Internet on $0.6m for $38.6m and Rowan Atkinson-starrer Johnny English Strikes Again on $0.4m on $24.5m, both after 24 days.

    'Aquaman' tops UK box office, 'Mortal Engines' disappoints

    UK box office Dec 14-Dec 16
    Rank Film (Distributor) Three-day gross (Dec 14-Dec 16) Total gross to date Week
    1 Aquaman (Warner Bros) £3.8m £5.2m 1
    2 The Grinch (Universal) £1.7m £21.7m 6
    3 Ralph Breaks The Internet (Disney) £1.4m £9.3m 3
    4 Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse (Sony) £1.2m £2.3m 1
    5. Creed II (Warner Bros) £748,000 £7.4m 3

    Warner Bros

    Saline superhero feature Aquaman started its UK run at the top of the box office chart, with a £3.81m opening. Adding in £1.4m in Wednesday-Thursday previews, the film is up to £5.21m, and achieved a £6,320 site average across 608 locations.

    This number is down on the other openings for recent DC Comics titles. Zack Snyder’s 2013 Man Of Steel began with £11.2m in the UK, ending on £30m, while his Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice did £14.6m and £36.6m in 2016. The same year, David Ayer’s Suicide Squad did £11.3m and went on to £33.6m.

    Last year, Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman started with £6.3m, including £1.2m in previews, and ended on £22.2m, while Snyder’s Justice League opened higher on £7.4m but struggled to £17.4m total.

    Aquaman is the only one of this group to open in December, and with no Star Wars film this Christmas, Warner Bros will be hoping it can pick up an audience throughout the holiday period. With $186.2m after 10 days in China, it is already the biggest DC film in that territory. It also scored impressive $261m after two weekends internationally, ahead of its opening in many countries including the US (December 21).

    Creed II stayed in the top five with £748,000 in its third week. Its lifetime of £7.4m is now ahead of the £5.9m achieved by the first title in 2016, and represents a decent result for Warner.

    It pipped another Warner title, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald, which took £696,000 in its fifth week and is up to £30.5m. It will finish some way short of Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, which took £54.7m in 2016.

    A Star Is Born added £59,000 and has now passed the £29m mark.

    Universal

    Post-apocalyptic adventure Mortal Engines took £310,763 from 404 screens over its opening weekend, and is up to £1.27m including previews after screening from December 8.

    Universal have a running hit with The Grinch, which held second place in its sixth week on release, dropping just 14% for a £1.74m weekend and putting it above Disney’s Ralph Breaks The Internet. The Grinch is now up to £21.68m, and will look to continue its form across the Christmas weeks.

    Boots Riley’s Sundance comedy Sorry To Bother You starring Lakeith Stanfield and Tessa Thompson put on £81,313 and is at £458,147 after two weeks.

    Sony

    Another title to open after a preview run, Sony’s Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, took £1.23m over the weekend from 570 locations for a £2,174 site average, and has £2.28m in total. It started on UK screens on December 8, before an official opening last Wednesday (December 12).

    Disney

    Ralph Breaks The Internet fell 43% on its third weekend for £1.4m and £9.3m to date. Barring a surge over Christmas, it will finish down on Wreck-It Ralph’s £23.8m gross.

    The Nutcracker And The Four Realms put on £100,000 on its seventh weekend and is up to £5.4m.

    20th Century Fox

    Bohemian Rhapsody took £528,064 over the weekend and is up to £45.13m after eight weeks. The Old Man & The Gun put on £100,028 for £625,183, while Widows added £37,497 and is at £6.13m. One year on from its release, Fox has also been re-running The Greatest Showman, with £47,829 from 58 locations this weekend pushing its UK total to £47.28m.

    Lionsgate

    Robin Hood added £22,051 for a £2.69m cume as it approaches the end of its run.

    'Aquaman' glides past $300m heading into holiday season

    Aquaman has crossed the $300m international milestone and heads into its third session as the clear favourite to retain the international crown, although several other titles will make a splash heading into holiday season.

    As of December 19 the DC Entertainment tentpole – already a hit before it opens in North America on December 21 – stood at $300.4m through Warner Bros Pictures International.

    This weekend sees Jason Momoa glide into France, Germany and Spain and after last weekend’s gargantuan $131.3m second session, it will bring in another substantial haul in the coming days.

    One heavyweight challenger for the international crown will be Mary Poppins Returns. The family classic reboot starring Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda from director Rob Marshall will sprinkle its magic over a wide swathe of the planet as it opens day-and-date with North America this weekend through Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International.

    Expected to deliver significant grosses heading in the holiday season are the UK, Germany, France, Brazil, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Portugal, Poland, Netherlands and Israel, among others. The Nutcracker And The Four Realms has grossed $109.1m, while Ralph Breaks The Internet on $134m arrives in Japan and Hong Kong.

    Another release that could make some noise is Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, which stands at an early $26.7m through Sony Pictures Releasing International and leaps into China this weekend. Spider-Man: Homecoming opened there on $69.2m in September 2017 and if Sony’s acclaimed animation takes off there could be fireworks in China. Spider-Verse also opens this weekend in Spain, Netherlands and Belgium.

    Sony’s horror release The Possession Of Hannah Grace stands at $16.4m, and the thriller Searching has reached $48.6m.

    Transformers spin-off Bumblebee directed by Laika Animation chief Travis Knight and starring Hailee Stenfeld and John Cena opens via Paramount Pictures International in 38 markets. Key highlights are anticipated in Australia, Germany, Italy, Russia and Mexico. Prospects appear to be very good: 2017 release Transformers: The Last Knight opened in the aforementioned markets on $3.4m, $4.9m, $2m, $8.5m, and $7.8m.

    While the number of key territories this weekend are too few to make a serious dent in Aquaman’s aspirations, Bumblebee should do well enough to establish a solid foothold before it launches next week in a further 17 markets led by the UK, France, Brazil, South Korea and Spain, followed by China on January 4. Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne comedy Instant Family stands at $9m.

    Fox International’s Bohemian Rhapsody stands at $462.1m, while the recent releases of Once Upon A Deadpool, the family-friendly version of Deadpool 2, continue this weekend in Argentina, Singapore and Denmark. Fox International is rolling the grosses into the original film and the updated tally is $419.3m.

    Returning to Warner Bros Pictures International, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald has amassed $448.5m, A Star Is Born $178.3m heading into Japan, Creed II $26.5m, and Crazy Rich Asians $64.7m.

    US Box Office: 'Aquaman' Splashes Down with $67.4 Million Debut; 'Poppins' and 'Bumblebee' Play Runner-Up

    The long Christmas weekend is underway with Aquaman, Warner Bros.'s latest entry into their DC Extended Universe, topping the charts, on its way to a $100+ million five-day opening. Meanwhile, Disney's Mary Poppins Returns and Paramount's Bumblebee finished in runner-up positions over a weekend that played relatively similarly to the same weekend last year, though given the holiday timing its hard to make an apples-to-apples comparison.

    Performing almost exactly as expected, WB's release of Aquaman easily took the #1 spot at the weekend box office with an estimated $67.4 million over the course of the three-day weekend and a cume that now stands at $72.1 million once you include the $4.7 million in grosses from pre-weekend Amazon Prime showings. The film is now expected to deliver around $105 million over the course of its first five days, which ends on Christmas Day, routinely the busiest day at the box office all year. The film received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences and played to an opening weekend crowd that was 55% male and 58% aged 25 years or older.

    Overall, the performance ranks as one of the top ten December openings of all-time, though it is sixth largest debut within WB's DC Extended Universe. That last note, however, will be an interesting stat to watch as Aquaman has enjoyed some of the best reviews of the franchise and audiences seem to be enjoying it to the tune of an 86% audience rating on RottenTomatoes.

    Worldwide, the film is the #1 release at the global box office for the third week in a row, bringing in another $91.3 million overseas this weekend from 70 markets for an international cume that now stands at $410.7 million and a global tally totaling $482.8 million. Comparing to all overseas markets in release, WB reports Aquaman is tracking as the highest grossing film in the DC Universe (+22% higher than Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, +52% higher than Justice League and +86% ahead of Wonder Woman). The film's top market remains China with an impressive $232.8 million, which ranks as the seventh highest grossing imported title in the market all-time. The film also debuted in South Korea this weekend with $9.9 million along with openings in France ($6.2m), Germany ($4.2m), Spain ($2.8m) and Hong Kong ($2.7m). The film will open in Australia on December 26 followed by openings in Italy (Jan 1) and Japan (Feb 8).

    Disney's Mary Poppins landed in second position for the three-day after opening on Wednesday. The film brought in an estimated $22.2 million over Friday-Sunday frame for a $31 million five-day cume. This is mostly what was expected heading into the weekend and while this may seem like a light performance this is a film that should play well throughout the holidays and into the new year. The film received strong reviews prior to opening — 65 on Metacritic 77% on RottenTomatoes — to go along with an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day crowds. Poppins's audience was 59% female with 61% of the opening weekend crowd coming in aged 25 years or older.

    Internationally, Mary Poppins Returns delivered an estimated $20.3 million from its first 17 markets, including a #1 start in the UK with an estimated $9.4 million. Additional openings include Italy ($2.8m), France ($2m), Germany ($1.9m) and Spain ($1.4m). The film expands further next weekend, debuting in Mexico, Denmark, Finland, Norway and many more with early January openings set for Australia and Russia and February debuts set for Japan and South Korea.

    Paramount's release of Bumblebee, the sixth film in the Transformers franchise, landed in third with an estimated $21 million as it too plays to expectations and should also enjoy a lengthy box office run thanks to strong reviews and an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences. That being said, the only real question with this film, as well as Aquaman and Sony Animation's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, is just how well all these films can play alongside one another and not cannibalize each other's potential box office as they play, mostly, to the same crowd. For now we're looking for Bumblebee to deliver a $32+ million five-day start.

    Internationally, Bumblebee opened in 38 markets with an estimated $31.1 million led by $4.9 million openings in both Russia and Indonesia. Additional openings include Mexico ($3.9m), Australia ($2.8m), Malaysia ($2.6m), Germany ($1.8m), Thailand ($1.2m) and Singapore ($1.2m). The film will expand into 17 additional markets next week including France, UK, Brazil, Korea and Spain with a January 4 release set for China and a March 22 release planned for Japan.

    The aforementioned release of Sony Animations's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse landed in fourth place with an estimated $16.7 million to kick off its second weekend with a cume that now stands just shy of $65 million. The film's 53% second weekend drop is a little more than anticipated, which speaks to the amount of competition that's currently in the marketplace right now, vying for the attention of the same sets of eyeballs.

    Spider-Verse also began its run in China this weekend, debuting at #1 with an estimated $26.1 million contributing to a $38 million international weekend and an overseas cume that now stands at $64.8 million. The film is still yet to open in Mexico (Dec 25), Italy (Dec 25), Brazil (Jan 10) and Japan (Mar 28).

    Rounding out the top five is WB's release of Clint Eastwood's The Mule, which enters its second week in release with an estimated $9.95 million and a domestic cume that now stands at $35.6 million.

    Universal and Illumination's release of The Grinch added an estimated $8.18 million this weekend as its cume now stands at $253.2 million, moving it ahead of Illumination's Despicable Me as the animation house's sixth largest domestic release of all-time. The film is certainly positioned to continue its strong run with Christmas right around the corner.

    In seventh position we find STXfilms's release of Second Act, which delivered an estimated $6.5 million for the three-day weekend as it looks to deliver $8.5+ million over its first five days in release. The $16 million romantic comedy stars Jennifer Lopez and received a "B+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences while the weekend crowd was 70% female with 51% were of the overall audience coming in between the ages of 25 and 44 and 75% of the total audience aged 25 or older.

    Barely finding its way into the top ten, Universal and DreamWorks's release of Robert Zemeckis's Welcome to Marwen was pretty much a disaster as the $39 million production scored a mere $2.35 million in its first three days from 1,911 locations and a $1,233 per theater average. The film didn't necessarily sit well with the audiences that did show up, receiving a harmless "B-" CinemaScore, which pretty much guarantees this one's theatrical tenure will be limited at best. The film played to an audience that was 52% female and 79% of the overall audience was aged 25 or older.

    Hot on Marwen's heels is Focus Features's Mary Queen of Scots, which brought in an estimated $2.2 million over the three day as it expanded nationwide, playing in 795 locations (+729) as it enters its third week in release.

    Just outside the top five is Fox Searchlight's The Favourite as it enters its fifth weekend in release and has now expanded nationwide, playing in 790 locations (+349) where it brought in an estimated $2.06 million for a cumulative gross that now stands at $10 million. The film will add a few additional locations next weekend as it plays throughout the holiday season, hoping to advance even further in the awards season race.

    In limited release, Amazon Studios's Cold War brought in an estimated $55,727 from three locations for a $18,576 per theater average.

    'Mary Poppins Returns' posts £8.2m opening after widest ever UK box office release

    Disney’s musical fantasy sequel Mary Poppins Returns got underway in the UK this weekend with an impressive £8.2m three-day opening from December 21-23.

    The film was released into a massive 740 cinemas – that’s the widest ever release for a film in the UK. Its £8.2m opening is an average of £11,081 per location.

    The sequal to the much-loved original, which stars Emily Blunt alongside Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw and Emily Mortimer,is set two decades later and sees the magical nanny return to the Banks family after they are beset by tragedy.

    In terms of UK openings in 2018, Mary Poppins slots comfortably into the top 10: Avengers: Infinity War (also Disney) sits top with a £23.1m three-day start; Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald (Warner Bros) posted £12.3m; Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (Universal) took £10.6m; Black Panther (Disney) took £10.5m; Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (Universal) opened with £9.7m, while Incredibles 2 (Disney) posted £9.5m.

    Three films opened below Mary Poppins and made it into the top 10 overall highest-grossing releases of the year: Peter Rabbit (Sony) with £7.2m; Deadpool 2 (Fox) with £7.7m; Bohemian Rhapsody (20th Century Fox) with £6.4m.

    Those numbers make good reading for Disney, with family films tending to post strong week-on-week holds this year. Incredibles 2 and Peter Rabbit both built on those decent starts to become the third and seventh highest-grossing releases of the year (£56.1m and £40.9m respectively), for example.

    Musicals have also fared particularly well in 2018. The Greatest Showman opened significantly less than Poppins with £2.6m, but built to become the eighth highest-grossing film of the year with £39.6m.

    Mary Poppins dominated 45% of takings over its opening Friday to Sunday, with grosses growing day-on-day moving into the UK bank holidays of Dec 25 (when most cinemas are closed) and Dec 26. The family title is likely to build consistently over the coming festive days - it looks set to comfortably be the biggest holiday release of the year.

    The film will have further competition from Transformers spin-off Bumblebee (Paramount) and comedy Holmes And Watson (Sony) from Dec 26.

    'Aquaman' is King of the Box Office Seas for a Second Weekend in a Row

    There were no big surprises in the final weekend of a record-setting 2018 as Warner Bros.'s Aquaman is once again king of the box office seas with a domestic cume that now tops $188 million and a worldwide tally nearing $750 million. Meanwhile, the weekend's new wide releases in Annapurna's Vice and Sony's Holmes & Watson were quiet in their debuts as the bulk of the weekend attention goes to holiday holdovers.

    Just slightly outperforming Mojo's pre-weekend expectations, WB and DC's Aquaman delivered the smallest second weekend drop in the DC Extended Universe, dipping just -23.5% for a $51.55 million second weekend, pushing the film's domestic cume over $188 million. The film now ranks as the eleventh largest domestic release based on a DC Comic after just ten days in release.

    Internationally, Aquaman brought in an estimated $85.4 million this weekend from 78 markets for an overseas cume totaling $560 million and a global tally reaching $748.8 million. This makes the film the third largest worldwide release in the DC Extended Universe, topping Suicide Squad. Meanwhile, it's the fifth largest worldwide release based on a DC Comic and the second largest international release behind only The Dark Knight Rises ($636.8m). China remains Aquaman's top market with a massive $260.4 million with releases in Italy set for January 1 and Japan serving as the final market to release where the film will open on February 8.

    Disney's Mary Poppins Returns also performed right on par with Mojo's pre-weekend forecast, delivering an estimated $28 million in its second weekend, a +19% improvement over last weekend, resulting in a domestic cume just shy of $100 million as the film begins to show potential for long legs.

    Internationally, Mary Poppins added $28.9 million this weekend from 37 markets for an international cume that now stands just shy of $75 million. The film's top overseas market remains the UK where it has grossed nearly $30 million so far and it will open in Australia and Russia next weekend.

    Paramount's Bumblebee dipped just -5% in its second weekend, delivering an estimated $20.5 million for a domestic cume that now stands at $66.7 million. The film's performance will continue to be one to watch as audiences are clearly enjoying it more than the last few films in the Transformers franchise, but the film faces a lot of direct competition in Aquaman and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which leaves open the question just how long the three films can thrive in theaters, playing side-by-side.

    Internationally, Bumblebee is now playing in 55 markets from which it grossed an estimated $45.7 million this weekend for an overseas cume that now stands at $90 million. Highlights among new openings include a $7.8 million opening in South Korea followed by the UK ($6.3m), France ($4.1m), Brazil ($3m), Taiwan ($2m) and Hong Kong ($1.5m). The film will begin playing in China on January 4 followed by a March 22 release in Japan.

    In fourth place, the aforementioned Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse followed what was a larger-than-expected drop last weekend with a +11.2% improvement this weekend, delivering an estimated $18.3 million to start its third week in release with a domestic cume that now tops $103 million. The film also added another $27.4 million internationally from 60 markets for a worldwide cume that now totals $213.2 million. Spider-Verse has still yet to open in Brazil where it will debut on January 10 followed by a March 28 opening in Japan.

    Rounding out the top five is WB's The Mule, which saw an impressive +24% improvement compared to last weekend, resulting in an estimated $11.78 million weekend and a domestic cume that now tops $60 million.

    Outside the top five, following its Christmas Day debut this past Tuesday, Annapurna's Vice entered its first weekend, playing in 2,442 locations from which it delivered an estimated $7.79 million. The performance is within range of pre-weekend expectations and slightly ahead of Mojo's pre-weekend forecast. Looking ahead, this clearly isn't looking to be the same kind of success as writer/director Adam McKay's The Big Short, which waited five weeks to play in as many theaters as Vice opened in, not to mention Big Short received an "A-" CinemaScore compared to the "C+" for Vice. The studio may have been better off with a platform approach, similar to Big Short, targeting a wide release on January 25, three days after the upcoming Oscar nomination announcement.

    That being said, Vice is already Annapurna's highest grossing domestic release of all-time after just six days in release with the picture grossing $17.7 million thus far.

    Also following its Christmas Day debut, Sony's comedy Holmes & Watson wasn't a hit with critics or audiences. The film received a "D+" CinemaScore from opening day crowds, signaling a steady decline in attendance, which was reflected in this weekend's performance with the film delivering an estimated $7.3 million from 2,776 locations. The film has now grossed just shy of $20 million after six days in release. To put that into perspective, previous comedies headlined by Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly saw Step Brothers open with $30.9 million ahead of a $100 million domestic run and Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby opened with $47 million before ending its domestic run just shy of $150 million.

    Holmes & Watson also began its international rollout this weekend, playing in eight markets and delivering an estimated $4 million led by a $1.8 million opening in Australia and a $1.7 million debut in the UK. Upcoming key markets include Russia (Jan 24), Germany (Feb 7), Italy (Feb 14), Spain (Feb 22) and France (Feb 27).

    In limited release, Reliance's release of Simmba debuted with an estimated $1.7 million from 300 locations ($5,751 PTA); Focus's release of On the Basis of Sex delivered an estimated $690k from 33 theaters ($20,909) after debuting on Christmas Day; Sony Classics's Stan & Ollie opened with $79,674 from five locations ($15,935); and Annapurna's Destroyer brought in an estimated $58,472 from three theaters ($19,491 PTA) after it too opened on Christmas Day.

    Overall, the weekend's top twelve were mostly on par with last weekend, grossing just +0.8% more as 2018 will soon come to a close as the highest grossing year at the domestic box office of all-time. So far, 2018 has delivered nearly $11.7 billion in domestic ticket sales and will top 2016's previous record year by more than $400 million.

    Next weekend will see us begin 2019 with the release of the Sony horror film Escape Room, debuting in ~2,500 locations.

    'Mary Poppins Returns' stays top for second week at the UK box office

    Walt Disney’s Mary Poppins Returns took £7.4m from 740 sites on its second week on release to hold on to the top spot for the three-day weekend of December 28-30. It fell just 10% to gross £23.3m to date.

    Paramount’s Transformers prequel Bumblebee rode the waves of good reviews to take £5.4m from 587 sites and snag second place on its opening weekend. It is directed by animation specialist Travis Knight, who has been twice nominated for an Oscar - for The Boxtrolls in 2015 and then for Kubo And The Two Strings in 2017. Bumblebee is his live-action debut and stars Hailee Steinfeld as a young girl in 1980s California who discovers and befriends the bashed up and abandoned machine Bumblebee.

    In third place is Warner Bros’ Aquaman which garnered £2.4m from 559 sites on its third weekend on release, a bump of 2%.

    The other big opener was Sony’s comedy Holmes & Watson which grossed £1.4m from 481 sites. It is the second film by Etan Cohen, who previously directed Get Hard in 2015, and stars Will Ferrell, Ralph Fiennes, John C Reilly and Rebecca Hall.

    Finally at number five, Disney’s Ralph Breaks The Internet made £1.2m for a £13.2m total after five weeks.

    'Aquaman' Tops $940 Million Worldwide; Sony's 'Escape Room' Unlocks $18M Debut

    It's a third straight weekend atop the weekend box office for Warner Bros.'s Aquaman as the film pushed over $940 million worldwide, becoming the highest grossing worldwide release in the DC Extended Universe. However, Sony's release of Escape Room made sure this weekend wasn't all about holdovers. The PG-13 horror/thriller made some some noise of its own, delivering a surprise runner-up finish, helping prove once again that the beginning of the year is fertile ground for horror film debuts.

    With an estimated $30.7 million, WB and DC Comics's Aquaman is the #1 film at the domestic weekend box office for the third straight weekend. The film's domestic cume now totals nearly $260 million and has now pulled even with Wonder Woman's performance after 16 days in release while still pacing behind Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a film Wonder Woman quickly left behind after 23 days in release. Aquaman will most likely follow suit and, once again, finish #1 at the box office next weekend, becoming the first film in the DCEU to secure the top spot four weekends in a row.

    Internationally, Aquaman added another $56.2 million this weekend from 79 markets for a running overseas cume totaling $681 million and a global tally surpassing $940 million. The film's international cume is the largest among DC Comic adaptations, surpassing The Dark Knight Rises ($636.8m) while the worldwide cume ranks third behind The Dark Knight Rises ($1.084 billion) and The Dark Knight ($1 billion). Aquaman's leading overseas market is China with $282.8 million, nearly $250 million more than South Korea with $35.3 million. The February 8 release in Japan serves as the film's last key market yet to see release.

    Sony's Escape Room debuted in second place with an estimated $18 million, well ahead of industry expectations and doubling its reported, $9 million budget. Opening weekend audiences gave the film a "B" CinemaScore, which is a decent score given the genre, while demographics saw audiences split 50/50 male-to-female with 53% of the overall crowd coming in aged 25 years or older for the PG-13 thriller. Looking ahead, we expect the film to top $40-45 million for its domestic run with Universal's Breaking In starting to look like a solid comp after it debuted with $17.6 million back in May 2018 and went on to deliver $46.5 million domestically.

    In third, Disney's Mary Poppins Returns delivered a bit below expectations, dipping -44% for an estimated $15.77 million and a domestic cume that now stands at $138.7 million. The drop is a bit higher than expected as the studio is hoping for some long legs out of this one. Internationally, the film added another $23 million this weekend helping push the overseas total just shy of $120 million for a worldwide cume that now totals $257.9 million with releases in Japan (2/1) and Korea (2/14) still on the horizon.

    Paramount's Bumblebee and Sony's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse are neck-and-neck as expected and right now the edge goes to Spider-Man by just $235k. Spider-Verse delivered an estimated $13 million over the weekend, pushing the film's domestic cume to $133.8 million while Bumblebee delivered a $12.77 million weekend, resulting in a domestic cume that now stands at $97.1 million.

    Internationally, however, it was Bumblebee with the edge this weekend with an estimated $82.7 million, the bulk of which coming from a $59.4 million debut in China. The film's international cume now stands at $192 million with Japan (March 22) serving as the final key market yet to release. Spider-Verse enjoyed its time in China over the past couple of weekends where it has now grossed nearly $60 million. This weekend it added an additional $11.7 million overseas for an international cume that now stands at $141.5 million.

    Just outside the top five, Clint Eastwood's The Mule continues its strong performance as it added 425 locations this weekend and dipped just -26% for an estimated $9 million weekend. The film's domestic cume now tops $81 million.

    'The Upside' is #1 at the US Box Office While 'Aquaman' Tops $1 Billion Worldwide

    Outperforming expectations, STXFilms's The Upside debuted atop the weekend box office, upsetting Aquaman's bid for a fourth straight weekend at #1. That said, Aquaman isn't exactly focused on its runner-up position domestically as the film is now the first in the DC Extended Universe to top $1 billion at the global box office. As for the rest of the week's new wide releases, Sony's A Dog's Way Home delivered on studio expectations while Entertainment Studios's sci-fi thriller Replicas failed to place within the weekend top ten.

    With an estimated $19.59 million, STXFilms's The Upside topped the weekend box office, dramatically outperforming expectations heading into the weekend. The remake of the popular French film The Intouchables, The Upside stars Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston, and while the reviews were mixed heading into the weekend, opening day audiences seemed to enjoy themselves, giving the film an "A" CinemaScore, which bodes well for the film's future.

    The Upside's opening audience was 59% female with 74% of the overall audience coming in aged 25 years or older. The film was originally rated R, but upon acquiring the the film following the Weinstein Co.'s bankruptcy settlement, STX and Lantern Entertainment worked with director Neil Burger and the film's producers to recut the movie to a PG-13, making it more accessible to a broader audience. The move paid off and gave STX its first #1 debut ever.

    In second is Aquaman, which may have relinquished the #1 slot at the weekend box office to begin its fourth week in release, but Warner Bros. is unlikely to be too upset as the film added an estimated $17.26 million domestically and another $27.9 million internationally for a global cume that now stands at $1.02 billion. Domestically the film has grossed $287.8 million while China remains its top foreign market with $287.3 million. The film will open in Japan, the last market where the film has yet to debut, on February 8. Aquaman is the first film in the DC Extended Universe to top $1 billion globally and it ranks as the second largest among DC Comics adaptations behind only The Dark Knight Rises ($1.0849 billion).

    Sony began its domination of the third, fourth and fifth spots at the weekend box office with the debut of its family feature, A Dog's Way Home, which opened with an estimated $11.3 million from 3,090 locations. The adaptation of the W. Bruce Cameron novel received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, which were 52% female with 51% of the audience coming in aged 25 years or older.

    Sony Animation's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is fresh of its win at the Golden Globes last weekend and continued its excellent box office run with an estimated $9 million this weekend, dropping just 31% as it begins its fifth week in release. The film's domestic cume now stands at $147.7 million as it will soon top the animation house's Hotel Transylvania and become SPA's third highest grossing domestic release of all-time. Spider-Verse also added another $9.4 million internationally this weekend for a global cume that now tops $300 million.

    Rounding out the top five is Sony's Escape Room, which had an excellent opening last weekend and followed that up with an estimated $8.9 million this weekend, bringing the $9 million production's domestic cume to $32.4 million after just ten days in release.

    Outside the top five, in eighth position, we find the expansion of Focus Features's On the Basis of Sex, which brought in an estimated $6.2 million from 1,923 locations (+1,811). The film received an "A" CinemaScore from audiences this weekend and has a domestic cume that now totals $10.55 million.

    Also expanding this weekend, Annapurna's If Beale Street Could Talk hasn't quite caught on as many may have expected earlier in the year as the film brought in an estimated $2.38 million from 1,018 locations (+683). The film's domestic cume now stands at $7.68 million as it begins its fifth week in release.

    One notch further down the list we come to Entertainment Studios's Replicas, a sci-fi thriller that was pretty much destroyed by critics and audiences didn't seem to care for the Keanu Reeves starrer either, giving it a "C" CinemaScore. So it shouldn't come as much of a surprise it debuted with just $2.5 million this weekend from 2,329 locations for a $1,073 per theater average. The performance ranks as one of the worst all-time among films debuting in over 2,000 theaters.

    'Stan & Ollie' edges out 'The Favourite' at UK box office with £2.4m debut

    Stan & Ollie opened at number one in the UK this weekend, grossing £2.41m from 653 sites for an average of £3,675. The film’s overall opening is £2.6m, including preview screenings totalling £162,061,

    Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly star in the biopic of comedians Laurel and Hardy. The film closed last year’s London Film Festival and Coogan recently picked up a Bafta nomination for his portrayal of Stan Laurel, with the release picking up three nods in total including for Outstanding British Film.

    The opening figure smashes the £248,046 set by director Jon S. Baird’s previous feature Filth in September 2013. That released ended on £3.9m, which Stan & Ollie will comfortably top.

    The Favourite posted an impressive uptick in its second weekend, with grosses up 9% for Fri-Sun with £2.4m from 618 sites. Including midweek takings, the film has moved to £8.3m in the UK. Continued awards momentum could mean this one has a long tail yet.

    Bohemian Rhapsody’s takings also rose this weekend (for the second consecutive outing), with grosses up 38% to £1m. Its cume now stands at £50m.

    Mary Poppins Returns dropped to third this weekend, adding £2.3m for £38.3m so far.

    Ralph Breaks The Internet added £650,000 this weekend and is now up to £16.7m from its UK run.

    Aquaman added £1.2m this weekend and is now up to £20.2m in the UK. Creed II has now grossed £9.9m after taking a further £134,000. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is up to £33.8m after adding £158,000, while A Star Is Born is on £29.3m after taking £153,000.

    Transformers spin-off Bumblebee added £1m and has now garnered £10.7m from its UK run.

    Rank Film (Distributor) Three-day gross (Jan 11-Jan 13)
    1 Stan & Ollie (eOne) £2.41m Total gross to date £2.6m Week 1
    2 The Favourite (20th Century Fox) £2.4m Total gross to date £8.3m Week 2

    US Box Office: 'Glass' Fills Up with $40.58M Debut While 'Dragon Ball' Delivers Top Five Opening

    Universal's Glass, from Blinding Edge Pictures and Blumhouse Productions, was unable to quite reach the lofty heights some had expected heading into the weekend, but the film still managed a solid #1 start, playing very similarly to its predecessor based on current estimates. Glass, however, might not be the biggest news of the weekend when you consider the monster debut of FUNimation's Dragon Ball Super: Broly, which is looking at a possible third place finish based on early estimates, but it's important to note current results are not from the film's domestic distributor, FUNimation. Elsewhere, STX's The Upside delivered on Mojo's pre-weekend expectations with a strong second weekend while WB's Aquaman topped $300 million domestically.

    With an estimated $40.58 million over the three-day weekend, Universal anticipates M. Night Shyamalan's Glass will reach $47 million for the four-day holiday weekend. The performance is a bit shy of the studio's $50 million expectations, but the three-day already more than doubles the film's reported $20 million budget. In terms of some of the records it was eying this weekend, the three-day performance makes it the fourth largest January opening of all-time while on track to deliver the third largest Martin Luther King weekend performance of all-time.

    Looking ahead, the film's debut is just ahead of 2017's Split, which opened with $40 million over the same weekend in 2017 and went on to gross over $138 million at the domestic box office. Glass received a "B" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, which is actually a grade higher than the "C" Unbreakable earned back in 2000, though behind Split's "B+" which would also seem to reflect the critical response which saw Split receive a 76% RottenTomatoes rating compared to the 35% for Glass. Audiences were 54% male with 65% of the audience coming in aged 25 or older. The difference in gender demographic is an interesting one considering Split played more like a well-reviewed horror film over its run, playing to an audience that was 52% female, not to mention a much younger crowd with 48% of Split's opening audience aged 25 or older. That said, Glass could be looking at a domestic performance ending around $85-95 million.

    Internationally, Glass is being distributed by Buena Vista International (excluding China) and grossed $48.5 million this weekend from 55 markets. Leading the way was Russia with an estimated $5.2 million followed by Mexico ($4.5m), UK ($4.3m), France ($3.4m), Korea ($2.8m), Germany ($2.8m), Australia ($2.4m), Italy ($2.1m), Spain ($2.0m), Brazil ($1.5m) and Indonesia ($1.5m). Based on current exchange rates in the same suite of markets, Glass is outpacing Split by approximately +13%.

    Finishing in second, following a strong debut last weekend, is STXfilms and Lantern Entainment's The Upside, dipping just -23% in its sophomore frame for an estimated $15.67 million. The studio anticipates the film will top $19.5 million over the 4-day Martin Luther King holiday weekend for a domestic cume just shy of $48 million after 11 days in release. The Upside has also brought in $4.1 million internationally thus far.

    Looking at a surprise third place position is FUNimation's Dragon Ball Super: Broly, though, as noted in our lede, the studio is not reporting domestic grosses this morning. That said, results from third party sources show the film neck-and-neck with WB's Aquaman for a domestic three-day topping $10 million and a five-day total following its Wednesday release topping $21 million. On the lower end of projections, one source puts the film's three-day at $9.3 million, which is still incredibly impressive and enough for a fourth place finish.

    Internationally, Dragon Ball is entering its seventh week in release and does so with an estimated $5.3 million from 18 markets for an international cume that now totals $65.8 million for a global tally just shy of $87 million. The film's top market is Japan with $33.3 million followed by Mexico where the film is in its second weekend and has brought in $9.5 million so far.

    As for Aquaman, the film added an estimated $10.3 million to its domestic total this weekend, which now stands at $304.3 million. The film is still in fourth place among previous releases in the DC Extended Universe. The film also added $14.3 million from 79 overseas markets this weekend, bringing the international cume to $759.1 million for a global tally of $1.06 billion, just a little over $21 million shy of The Dark Knight Rises as it will soon become the highest grossing worldwide release among DC Comics adaptations.

    Rounding out the top five is Sony's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which enjoyed the smallest drop in the top ten (-19.8%) with an estimated $7.25 million for the three-day. The film is expected to top $9 million over the four-day weekend, pushing the film's domestic cume over $160 million, which would put it ~$9 million shy of topping Hotel Transylvania 2 as Sony Animation's highest grossing domestic release of all-time. Internationally, the film added another $4.7 million this weekend, pushing its worldwide total over $322 million.

    Elsewhere, on its 78th day of release, Fox's Bohemian Rhapsody topped $200 million domestically this weekend as the film continues to play almost neck-and-neck with WB's A Star is Born, which topped $200 million on its 80th day of release. After an additional $639k this weekend, A Star is Born has now grossed just shy of $205 million domestically. Worldwide, however, it's no competition with Bohemian Rhapsody adding another $11.3 million this weekend for an international cume that has now reached $596 million for a global tally $2 million shy of $800 million.

    Glass comfortably opened number one in the UK this weekend with a £3.4m debut, including previews of roughly £100,000.

    The film is a sequel to two of director M. Night Shyamalan’s previous works – Unbreakable (£11.6m gross in the UK) and Split (£11.4m) – starring Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson from the former, and James McAvoy from the latter in an unusual take on the superhero genre.

    The film opened an impressive 34% up on Split, which opened with £2.6m in 2017. Director Shyamalan’s top performing film in the UK remains The Sixth Sense, which built to £25.8m back in 1999.

    'Glass' Repeats Atop the Weekend Box Office While New Releases Struggle

    The weekend turned out a bit better than expected with Universal's Glass holding on to the top spot with an estimated $19 million on its way to a $100+ million domestic run, though the weekend's newcomers in Fox's The Kid Who Would be King and Serenity struggled. Meanwhile this year's crop of Oscar nominees saw Green Book re-enter the top ten following its five nominations while The Favourite, Bohemian Rhapsody and A Star is Born all improved compared to last weekend.

    Finishing with an estimated $19 million, Universal's Glass dipped -53% in its second weekend for a domestic cume that now stands at $73.5 million after just ten days in release. Internationally, the film added $23.6 million from 55 markets for an overseas cume totaling $89.1 million and a global tally reaching $162.7 million. The film is now open in all markets except for China where it still does not have an official release date.

    Second place went to The Upside, which continues its impressive run, dipping just -18.4% this weekend for an estimated $12.2 million and a domestic cume that now tops $63 million. The performance is a notch ahead of Mojo's lofty, pre-weekend projections, and other than the expansion of Green Book, it currently has the best hold among holdover films in the top ten. Internationally, the film brought in an estimated $1.1 million this weekend for an international cume totaling $6.1 million, from 38 markets released for a worldwide tally topping $69 million.

    For now, Warner Bros.'s Aquaman holds a narrow lead for third place, bringing in an estimated $7.35 million for a domestic cume that now tops $316 million. In even bigger news, the film has now topped $1.09 billion at the global box office making it the largest DC Comics adaptation of all-time globally, the third largest WB movie all-time worldwide and now ranks as the 25th largest worldwide release ever.

    In fourth, by just $100k, is Fox's The Kid Who Would be King with an estimated $7.25 million debut. Budgeted at a reported $59 million, the family feature had strong reviews heading into the weekend, but just wasn't able to capture audience attention. Opening day audiences gave the film a "B+" CinemaScore while the overall audience coming in was 53% female and 53% of the opening weekend crowd was aged 25 or older. Internationally, the film began playing last weekend and this weekend added $1.94 million for an overseas total that now stands at $3.2 million as it is now in just 20 markets.

    Rounding out the top five is Sony's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse with an estimated $6.15 million bringing the film's domestic cume to $169 million. The film is now less than $700k behind Hotel Transylvania 2, on its way to becoming the highest grossing domestic release ever for Sony Animation. Internationally the film added $2.8 million this weekend for an overseas cume of $169.1 million and a global tally topping $338 million.

    Just outside the top five is Universal's Oscar contender Green Book, which expanded into 2,430 locations (+1,518) this weekend following this week's Oscar nominations and saw a +150% increase with an estimated $5.4 million three-day. The film has now grossed nearly $50 million domestically as it enters its eleventh week in release. Internationally, the film's release is being handled by Lionsgate and Amblin, and it is playing in 33 markets where it grossed $5.7 million this weekend for an international cume topping $10 million and a worldwide gross that currently stands at $59.3 million.

    It isn't until eighth position that we find Aviron's release of Serenity which was unable to generate much attention, debuting with just $4.8 million from 2,561 locations ($1,874 PTA). Opening day audiences seemed to agree with critics, giving the film a "D+" CinemaScore. Overall, the opening weekend crowd was split 50/50 male vs. female while 73% of the audience coming in was aged 25 or older.

    Looking at a few of the other Oscar contenders that expanded this weekend, Fox Searchlight's The Favourite brought in an estimated $2.56 million (+214%) after adding over one thousand theaters as its domestic cume now tops $26 million. Fox's Bohemian Rhapsody is slowly creeping up on A Star is Born's domestic cume after bringing in nearly $2.5 million (+7.6%) from 1,423 locations for a domestic total that now stands at $205.8 million. Speaking of A Star is Born, it too added some theaters this weekend, playing in 1,192 locations (+777) from which it brought in an estimated $1.26 million for a domestic cume that now stands at $206.3 million.

    This weekend also saw Clint Eastwood's The Mule top $100 million on its 45th day of release.

    'Glass' Threepeats at #1 Over Dismal Super Bowl Weekend

    It was an incredibly soft start to the February box office with the top 12 grossing just a combined $55.4 million. You'd have to go back to the first weekend in September 2017 to find a worse performance from the top twelve films. The top of the box office was a repeat from the last three weekends with Glass taking the top spot while Sony's Miss Bala debuted in third place. Overall, the weekend is expected to be the worst Super Bowl weekend at the box office since 2000 when Destination Films's Eye of the Beholder starring Ashley Judd and Ewan McGregor topped the box office.

    Universal's Glass topped the weekend box office for a third straight week, bringing in an estimated $9.5 million, pushing the film's domestic gross over $88 million. Internationally the film added $12.2 million this weekend from 54 markets, for an overseas cume that now totals over $110 million and a global tally just shy of $200 million.

    Placing second for a third straight weekend is STXFilms's The Upside, which continues a strong domestic run with a cume that has now topped $75.5 million. This weekend the film dipped just -26% for a $8.85 million fourth weekend.

    Sony's Miss Bala landed in third position over its debut, pulling in an estimated $6.6 million from 2,203 locations. The performance is on the soft side for the $15 million production, which entered the weekend with mixed-to-negative reviews — 41 on Metacritic and 27% on RottenTomatoes — and there's also a curious absence of the film's CinemaScore despite the polling service reporting on Twitter they would be polling the film this weekend. To go by audience ratings at RottenTomatoes, 61% said they liked it, while the rating on IMDb tells a different story with a rating of 4.9/10. Opening weekend crowds broke down 54% female and 66% were 25 years of age or older.

    WB's Aquaman landed in fourth place, dipping -34% for an estimated $4.78 million and a domestic cume that now totals $323.5 million. The film also brought in another $4.6 million internationally this weekend for a global cume that now totals $1.106 billion with the film set to open in Japan this coming Friday, February 8.

    Rounding out the top five was Sony's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse with an estimated $4.4 million for a domestic cume that now tops $175 million, now ranking as Sony Animation's highest grossing domestic release of all-time. The film also added another $1.6 million internationally this weekend for an overseas cume that now totals $172 million.

    Just outside the top five is Universal's Oscar contender Green Book, which dipped just -21% in its second weekend since its post-Oscar nomination expansion. The film grossed an estimated $4.3 million over the three-day for a domestic cume that now tops $55 million. Internationally the film also expanded its footprint, delivering an estimated $11.8 million from nearly 50 markets for an international total that now tops $25 million.

    Rounding out the top ten was WB's release of Peter Jackson's World War I documentary They Shall Not Grow Old, which scored a massive $8.3 million from just three event screenings prior to this weekend's traditional release in 735 locations. The film ended up delivering an estimated $2.4 million over the three-day for a domestic total that now stands at $10.7 million.

    In limited release, Fox International's Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga brought in $600k from 193 locations ($3,109 PTA); Bleecker's Arctic delivered an estimated $56,463 from four theaters ($14,116 PTA); Greenwich released Piercing in 35 locations where it brought in $8,500 ($340 PTA); and Cinema Guild's The Wild Pear Tree brought in $5,392 from one theater.

    Next weekend should see much better results with Warner Bros. debuting The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part in over 4,100 locations along with Paramount's release of the R-rated comedy What Men Want, Summit's Cold Pursuit and Orion Pictures's debut of The Prodigy.

    'LEGO Movie 2' Debuts with Weaker Than Expected, $34M Opening

    The weekend didn't turn out to be quite as big as expected, thanks mostly due to a severe underperformance from Warner Bros.'s The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, which debuted approximately $20 million below expectations as franchise fatigue seems to have settled in rather quickly. Otherwise, the rest of the weekend's new releases fell, for the most part, within expectations with What Men Want finishing in the runner-up position followed by Lionsgate's release of Summit's Cold Pursuit while Orion's The Prodigy fell just a bit outside industry expectations.

    At the top of the box office, Warner Bros.'s The LEGO Movie 2 brought in an estimated $34.4 million, falling well short of the anticipated $50-55 million the studio was anticipating heading into the weekend. The performance is also well below the $69 million the first film opened with back in February 2014 as well as below the $53 million opening for The LEGO Batman Movie in February 2017. That same year WB debuted a second LEGO feature in The LEGO Ninjago Movie, which opened with a franchise low, $20.4 million in September 2017. The dwindling returns for the films in this franchise suggests the studio jumped the gun with so many spin-offs before actually establishing the overall series.

    That said, critics have given three of the four films (Ninjago excluded) top marks, with those three declared "Certified Fresh" on RottenTomatoes and the same going for audience response on those same three films. Audiences gave LEGO 2 an "A-" CinemaScore, matching the same score for LEGO Batman, though the films have been trending increasingly male with LEGO 2 playing to an audience that was 57% male, the largest gender discrepancy among all four films so far. Overall, however, ancillaries should most likely remain high with LEGO 2 suggesting this is far from the end of the franchise, and WB may simply need to change tact looking ahead.

    Internationally, LEGO 2 brought in an estimated $18.1 million from 63 overseas markets. Comparatively, the first LEGO Movie brought in $18.4 million in its first weekend from ~30 fewer markets. As for the sequel's performance, the UK led the way with $5.3 million followed by Russia ($1.7m), Poland ($1.3m), Germany ($1.1m), Spain ($830k), Brazil ($707k), the Netherlands ($622k) and South Korea ($500k). The film will open in Mexico on February 14 followed by openings in France (Feb 20), Italy (Feb 21) and Australia (Mar 21).

    Paramount's What Women Want came in smack dab in the middle of studio expectations, debuting with an estimated $19 million from 2,912 locations. The film entered the weekend with relatively weak reviews — 47% on RottenTomatoes and 51 on Metacritic — and audiences seem to have agreed based on a 49% audience score at RottenTomatoes and a very weak, 3.6/10 on IMDb. That said, the film's CinemaScore was still an "A-", matching the likes of Night School, which pulled off a 2.83x multiplier, which would mean a $53 million run for What Men Want on a reported $20 million budget should it enjoy a similar run.

    Lionsgate's release of Summit's Cold Pursuit slightly exceeded expectations with an $10.8 million opening from 2,630 locations. The film played to an opening weekend crowd that was 58% male with 79% of the overall audience coming in aged 25 or older, playing to similar demographics to that of star Liam Neeson's The Commuter, which opened last January with $13.7 million and went on to gross over $36 million. A similar run for Cold Pursuit would have it ending its run just shy of $30 million domestic. The film received a "B-" CinemaScore.

    In fourth is STXFilms's The Upside, continuing its strong week-over-week performance, this time dipping just -17% compared to last weekend with an estimated $7.2 million and a domestic cume that now stands at $85.8 million, well on its way to a $100 million domestic run. The film has also brought in $8.9 million internationally so far, boosting its worldwide cume to $94.7 million.

    Rounding out the top five is Universal's Glass with an estimated $5.8 million for a domestic cume that now totals $98.4 million. The film also added $6.6 million internationally this weekend for an overseas cume that now totals $123 million, pushing its global cume over $221 million.

    Finishing outside the top five is Orion's release of the horror thriller The Prodigy, which debuted in 2,530 locations with an estimated $6 million. The performance is short of the $7-9 million the studio was anticipating heading into the weekend, but with a $6 million budget the film should break even easily enough, though weak reviews and a relatively poor audience response means it won't be sticking around too long. Overall, the film played to an audience that was 54% male with 61% of the crowd coming in aged 25 or older. The film received a "C+" CinemaScore.

    Elsewhere in the top ten, Universal's Green Book added $3.56 million domestically for a cume totaling $61.5 million while Lionsgate's and Amblin's release of the film overseas added an additional $11.4 million internationally this weekend for a worldwide cume topping $106 million for the Oscar contender.

    In limited release Focus Features's Everybody Knows, starring Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz, opened in four locations in New York and Los Angeles with an estimated $75,000 ($18,750 PTA). Additionally, Magnolia released the 2019 Oscar Nominated Short Films in 265 theaters, the widest release ever in the distributor's 14 years of releasing the shorts and the result was the largest debut, coming in at an estimated $912,000 ($3,442 PTA).

    Additional limited releases include Gunpowder & Sky's Lords of Chaos, which opened in four theaters with an estimated $28,086 ($7,021 PTA); Good Deed's To Dust opened with $8,400 in one theater; and STX released Peppa Celebrates Chinese New Year in 67 locations with an estimated $70,000 ($1,045 PTA) for a $127,195 cume since debuting on Wednesday.

    Next weekend sees the release of the Blumhouse sequel Happy Death Day 2U, which Universal will debut in ~3,000 locations and WB's release of New Line's Isn't It Romantic with Rebel Wilson, opening in 3,300+ theaters.
