    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.

    US Box Office: 'How to Train Your Dragon 3' Debuts with Franchise Best, $55.5 Million Debut

    The 2019 box office has finally received a jolt of energy with an impressive, $55.5 million debut for DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World. The performance led the weekend box office, closing out the final weekend within what has been a rough start to the first two months at the domestic box office this year. The weekend also saw MGM's expansion of Fighting with My Family, which debuted at the lower end of industry expectations, while Roadside's Run the Race found itself within the top ten from just 853 locations.

    With an estimated $55.5 million, Universal's release of the DreamWorks Animation title How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World delivered not only the #1 movie at this weekend's box office, but the largest debut of the year so far, surpassing Glass by more than $15 million. The opening is also the largest debut in the How to Train Your Dragon franchise, topping the $49.4 million opening for How to Train Your Dragon 2 back in 2014. The film's overall domestic performance so far totals over $58 million once you include the $2.5 million it brought in from an exclusive Fandango event earlier this month. The question now is to wonder how the film will perform from here.Following a $43.7 million opening, the first film went on to gross over $217.5 million in 2010, a nearly 5x multiplier. The second film, while still strong, mustered a 3.58x multiple and just over $177 million for its domestic run. Like its predecessors, Hidden World received an "A" CinemaScore and was well received by critics, earning a 91% score at RottenTomatoes. One interesting note is this is the first film in the franchise to play to an audience that skewed more male than female, albeit by a small margin, with males making up 51% of the opening weekend audience compared to 45% and 47% for the last two films. It also skewed slightly younger with 39% of the overall audience coming in aged 25 or older compared to 51% and 44% for its predecessors respectively.

    Looking ahead, Using the multipliers for the first two films gives us a range anywhere from $198 million to as much as $277+ million and the film does face genre competition in the relatively near future with Wonder Park opening in three weeks. That said, a $200+ million domestic performance feels like a sure bet at this point, which is great news for Universal with their first release since acquiring DreamWorks Animation back in 2016 for $3.8 billion not to mention Hidden World carries the lowest price tag among the three films in the franchise, coming in with a reported budget of $129 million vs. $165 million for the original and $145 million for the first sequel.

    And while the second film may not have lived up to its predecessor domestically, it more than made up for it overseas, outperforming the first film by more than $167 million internationally and The Hidden World appears to be following suit. After opening in just two markets six weeks ago, the film entered its seventh weekend in international release this weekend and is now playing in 53 territories including nine new markets this weekend. Leading the weekend charge was a #1 opening in Russia with $11.2 million followed by Spain where it also debuted atop the charts with an estimated $2.8 million. The film's top market is the UK where it has brought in over $20 million so far. Next weekend it continues its rollout with a March 1 debut in China followed by an August 23 release in Japan. The film has so far brought in $216.9 million overseas for a global tally that is currently just shy of $275 million.

    In second place is Fox's Alita: Battle Angel, which managed to outperform expectations last weekend, but this weekend suffered a setback. The film dipped a healthy -58% in its sophomore frame for a $12 million three-day, for a domestic total topping $60 million after 11 days in release. Internationally the film faired a bit better, debuting in China with an estimated $62.2 million for a #1 finish and contributing a significant portion of its overall $92.4 million overseas weekend. At this point Alita has brought in over $202 million internationally for a global cume totaling more than $263 million.

    Warner Bros. pulled into third position with The LEGO Movie 2, but it also found itself struggling in the face of the newest Dragon feature as it dipped -52% this weekend for an estimated $10 million three-day and a 17 day cume now totaling $83.6 million. Internationally, the film is also struggling, adding just $10.3 million from 73 markets this weekend for an international cume that now stands at $53 million. Overall the global tally stands at $136.6 million with Australia remaining the lone market yet to release, where the film will debut on March 21.

    In fourth position we come to MGM's expansion of the comedic drama Fighting with My Family. After opening in four theaters last weekend the film expanded into 2,711 locations this weekend and delivered a $8 million performance.

    WB's release of New Line's Isn't It Romantic rounded out the top five with an estimated $7.5 million, pushing its domestic cume approaching $34 million.

    Elsewhere in the top ten, STX's The Upside took in and estimated $3.2 million this weekend for a cume that is now just shy of $100 million, a milestone the film will most likely surpass on Monday. Internationally, the film has taken in $10.8 million from 52 markets released so far.

    Rounding out the top ten is Roadside's release of the Tim Tebow-produced Run the Race, which debuted in 853 theaters with an estimated $2.27 million. The film played to a crowd that was 53% female with 77% of the overall audience coming in aged 25 or older.

    'How to Train Your Dragon 3' Holds off Madea's 'Family Funeral' at US Box Office

    Universal and DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World was able to fend off Lionsgate's release of Tyler Perry's A Madea Family Funeral and retain the weekend's #1 spot at the box office even though Perry's final outing as Madea outperformed expectations with the fourth best opening in the now nine-film franchise. Focus's Greta settled outside the top five in its debut weekend, while Universal's Best Picture winner, Green Book, saw a strong bump following its Oscar night win.

    With an estimated $30 million, Universal's How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World dipped -45% in its second weekend, pushing the film's domestic cume to $97.6 million after ten days in release. The film dipped a little more than we expected heading into the weekend, but still managed to hold on better than the second film in the franchise over its sophomore frame as it is still outpacing its predecessors at the same point in the release cycle, though it's looking less and less likely it can maintain that momentum.

    Internationally, Hidden World added $52 million this weekend, the bulk of which came from its debut in China where it racked up an estimated $33.4 million. The film's international cume now stands at $277.7 million for a worldwide cume that now tops $375 million. The film still has eight markets left to release, the last of which being Japan on August 23.

    In second place is Tyler Perry's ninth film in the Madea film franchise and the multi-hyphenate is reportedly making this his final Madea feature. If that holds true and Lionsgate can't talk him into a tenth pic, the titular character is going out with a bang, delivering an estimated $27 million debut, the fourth largest in the franchise. The film also received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening weekend audiences and if past performances from Madea titles means anything, look for the film to finish right around $60 million if not a bit higher. The film's opening weekend audience was 67% female and 78% of the crowd was age 25 and over, lining up with previous releases.

    Fox's Alita: Battle Angel finished with an estimated $7 million in third place, pushing the film's domestic cume over $72 million as it begins its third week in release. The film also added another $40.4 million internationally this weekend from 81 markets for an overseas cume that now totals $278.2 million, giving the $170 million production a global tally that now tops $350 million.

    WB's The LEGO Movie 2 took fourth place with an estimated $6.6 million as its domestic cume now stands at $91.6 million. The film also added another $6.1 million internationally this weekend for an international cume that now over $61 million and a worldwide tally that stands at $152.8 million.

    Rounding out the top five is last weekend's winner of Oscar's Best Picture, Universal's Green Book, which saw a +121% jump and brought in an estimated $4.7 million, pushing the film's domestic cume over $75 million. Additionally, Lionsgate and Amblin's release of the film overseas delivered $31.9 million from 63 markets this weekend, for an international cume that now totals $112.1 million and a worldwide total over $188 million.

    Outside the top five, in something of a log jam from spots five thru eight, is where we find Focus Features's release of Greta, which debuted with an estimated $4.58 million. The performance is within Mojo's expectations, but with 2,411 locations in play that's only $1,902 per location. The film received a "C-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences and played to a crowd that was 55% female with 29% of the overall audience coming in aged 35 and older. The film also opened in Australia and New Zealand this weekend, bringing in an estimated $400,000.

    In limited release, Neon's documentary Apollo 11 led the way, debuting exclusively on 120 IMAX screens with an estimated $1.65 million for a per screen average of $13,750. The film will expand everywhere next weekend.

    Additional limited releases include Well Go's Furie, which brought in $145,400 from 14 locations ($10,386 PTA); A24's Climax brought in $121,655 from five screens for a chart-topping $24,331 per theater average; Music Box's Transit delivered $35,368 from two theaters; Vertical's Giant Little Ones opened in one location with an estimated $13,500; IFC's The Wedding Guest debuted in four theaters with $20,156 ($5,039 PTA); Ammo's Chokehold brought in $3,900 from three theaters ($1,300 PTA); Oscilloscope's re-release of The Hours and Times opened with an estimated $2,250 from one theaters; and Blue Fox's Saint Judy debuted with $41,234 from 55 theaters ($750 PTA).

    Lastly, Disney's Ralph Breaks the Internet finally topped $200 million domestically this weekend after having already outperformed the first film, which reached $189.4 million domestically back in 2012. Internationally, the Ralph sequel is now just shy of $320 million for a global cume totaling $520 million. The first film finished with over $471 million globally.

    All that being said, 2019 continues to dig itself a hole, currently pacing -26% behind 2018 and is actually pacing behind each of the last five years at the domestic box office. As a result, next weekend's release of Marvel's Captain Marvel will be watched closely as it is set to debut in 4,100+ locations with tracking as of last week targeting as much as $140 million for the three-day. Will it be the start of a major turnaround?

    'Captain Marvel' Delivers a Massive $153M US Opening and $455M Worldwide

    Disney's release of Marvel Studios's Captain Marvel gave the domestic box office a much needed jolt after the first two months of the year struggled to compete with 2018. The twenty-first entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe delivered the franchise's seventh largest opening weekend of all time while grossing more over its first three days than the combined totals of any previous three-day weekend so far this year.

    With an estimated $153 million, Captain Marvel proved a massive success, bringing in the third highest March opening of all-time, and don't be surprised to see actuals push the film's total a bit higher come Monday afternoon. Historically, the performance ranks among openings that include The Dark Knight ($158.4m opening), The Hunger Games: Catching Fire ($158m opening), Rogue One ($155m opening) and The Hunger Games ($152.5m opening), the four of which representing a total domestic gross ranging from $408-530+ million.

    On average, the 20 previous releases in the MCU delivered a 2.76x multiplier, which would suggest Captain Marvel's run would finish around $422 million based on the film's domestic opening weekend. That said, should it manage to top Iron Man 3's $409 million domestic run it would rank as the fifth largest film in the MCU and, in terms of genre competition, it has a few weeks all to itself before WB's Shazam! opens on April 5.

    It is interesting to note exits, which show the film playing to an opening weekend crowd that was 55% male and 45% female, which, along with Black Panther and Ant-Man and the Wasp, is the smallest gender divide among films in the MCU, but nowhere near the 52% female crowd Wonder Woman played to back in June 2017. Additionally, 64% of the film's opening weekend crowd was aged 25 or older, which ranks as one of the older audiences for an MCU film, while it earned an "A" CinemaScore.

    Internationally, Captain Marvel delivered an estimated $302 million, making it the fifth highest international opening weekend of all-time and the sixth largest worldwide debut ever. Leading the way was the film's opening in China, which is estimated at $89.3 million, which ranks as the third largest MCU opening weekend ever in the market behind Avengers: Infinity War and Captain America: Civil War. Behind China is South Korea with a $24.1 million debut followed by the UK ($16.8m), Brazil ($13.4m), Mexico ($12.8m), Australia ($10.7m), Indonesia ($10.1m), Russia ($9.8m), France ($9.2m), Germany ($7.8m), India ($6.9m), Thailand ($6.6m), Taiwan ($6.4m), Philippines ($6.3m), Malaysia ($5.6m), Italy ($5.5m) and Hong Kong ($5.2m). Next weekend the film will open in Japan serving as the only market where the film has yet to be released.

    Universal's How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World finished in the runner-up position with an estimated $14.7 million for a domestic cume just shy of $120 million as it enters its third week in release. The film also added another $21.7 million internationally this weekend, for an overseas cume that now totals $315.5 million for a global tally topping $435 million.

    Tyler Perry's A Madea Family Funeral dipped -55% in its second weekend, delivering an estimated $12.05 million, pushing the film's domestic cume just shy of $46 million.

    WB's The LEGO Movie 2 entered its fifth week in release with an estimated $3.8 million as it continues to inch toward $100 million domestically. The film also added another $3.9 million internationally this weekend for an international cume that is now $67.3 million, and a worldwide gross totaling $164.4 million.

    Rounding out the top five is Fox's Alita: Battle Angel, which dipped -56% for an estimated $3.2 million three-day and a domestic cume that now totals just over $78 million. The film also added $11.6 million from 74 overseas markets, lifting the international cume over $300 million for a worldwide tally that now stands at $382.6 million.

    Elsewhere, Neon's Apollo 11, which expanded into 405 theaters after playing in 120 IMAX exclusive locations last weekend, rounded out the top ten with an estimated $1.3 million for a $3,212 per theater average.

    In limited release, Reliance's Badla brought in an estimated $614,328 from 94 locations ($6,535 PTA); Lionsgate's The Kid delivered an estimated $513,000 from 268 locations ($1,912 PTA); A24's Gloria Bell debuted with an estimated $154,775 on 5 screens in NY and LA, for a per screen average of $30,955; Kino Lorber's re-release of Babylon brought in an estimated $20,096 from one theater; and Greenwich's Ferrante Fever opened with an estimated $4,000 from one location.

    Overall, this is the first weekend in 2019 that saw the overall weekend gross manage to outperform the same weekend in 2018, doing so by a strong +48% based on estimates. The year, however, is still pacing -27% behind 2018's record pace, but with so many major releases still in the pipeline 2019 should start closing that gap sooner than later.

    Next weekend Paramount's animated feature Wonder Park will open in ~3,500 locations; Lionsgate's Five Feet Apart will debut in 2,600 theaters; and Focus will go nationwide with Captive State in ~2,200 theaters.

    'Captain Marvel' Tops $760 Million Worldwide as Newcomers Overperform

    For a second weekend in a row Disney and Marvel's Captain Marvel topped the weekend box office as it has now posted over $760 million worldwide in just twelve days in global release. Overall, the weekend ended up topping the same weekend last year for a second straight week as both Wonder Park and Five Feet Apart outperformed expectations with their opening weekend performance. At the same time Lionsgate's release of Pantelion's No Manches Frida 2 delivered a top ten finish from just 472 theaters, topping Focus's disappointing release of Captive State, which struggled in its debut in over 2,500 locations.

    Disney's Captain Marvel topped the weekend box office for a second weekend in a row, delivering an estimated $69.3 million sophomore frame, dipping -54.8% and outperforming the -56% average second weekend dip for a film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This pushes the film's domestic cume over $266 million after just ten days in domestic release.

    Internationally, Captain Marvel opened in its final international market this weekend, finishing #1 with an estimated $5.6 million in Japan. China remains the top grossing international market with an estimated $132 million followed by South Korea ($36.5m), the UK ($30.9m), Brazil ($24.3m) and Mexico ($22.4m). Overall, the film brought in $119.7 million from 54 markets this weekend for an overseas cume that now totals $494 million for a global cume that is now over $760 million. That number already surpasses ten previous releases in the MCU globally and will soon top Guardians of the Galaxy ($773.3m globally) to become the tenth highest grossing worldwide release in the MCU.

    In the runner-up position, Paramount's Wonder Park managed to outperform the top end of expectations, delivering an estimated $16 million debut from 3,838 locations. Opening day audiences gave the film a "B+" CinemaScore while the opening crowd was 59% female and 62% families.

    Internationally, Wonder Park opened in 19 markets with an estimated $4.3 million. Leading the way was Brazil with a $1.7 million debut followed by Indonesia ($276K), Turkey ($266K) and the United Arab Emirates ($235K). The film opens in Russia next week followed by an April 3 debut in France with openings in Australia, Germany, Mexico, Spain and the UK set for the following week.

    In third place, Lionsgate's release of CBS Films's Five Feet Apart also managed to outperform expectations and topped opening weekend comps including Love, Simon and Everything, Everything, delivering an estimated $13.1 million opening weekend from 3,727 theaters and with it a solid "A" CinemaScore suggesting good things for the weeks to come. The film's opening weekend audience was 82% female with 65% of the opening weekend crowd coming in under the age of 25. 45% of that audience was under the age of 18 and gave the film an "A+" CinemaScore.

    Universal's release of DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World landed in fourth, dipping -36% as it entered its fourth week in release with an estimated $9.3 million three-day, pushing its domestic box office over $135 million. The film also added another $9.4 million internationally this weekend, pushing its overseas total to $330.9 million for a global tally that stands at $466.5 million.

    Rounding out the top five is Tyler Perry's A Madea Family Funeral, which dipped -36% as it enters its third week in release, delivering an estimated $8 million for a domestic cume that now stands at $59 million.

    Lionsgate's third film in the top ten lands just outside the top five with the release of Pantelion's No Manches Frida 2 debuting in 472 theaters and delivering an impressive $3.89 million. The performance is a notch ahead of the original film's $3.6 million three-day debut over Labor Day weekend back in 2016 and audiences appear to have liked what they saw, giving the sequel an "A" CinemaScore.

    Next we come to Focus's release of Captive State, which was unable to capture audience attention, delivering just $3.1 million from 2,548 locations for only a $1,242 per theater average. Audiences that saw the film weren't exactly taken with it either, giving it a "C-" CinemaScore. The film played to an opening weekend crowd that was 55% male with 66% of the crowd coming in under the age of 35.

    In limited release, Focus's The Mustang brought in an estimated $76,000 from four theaters ($18,950 PTA); ArtAffects's Faith, Hope & Love opened with $60,855 from 18 theaters ($3,381 PTA); Fox Searchlight's release of The Aftermath brought in an estimated $57,500 from five theaters ($11,500 PTA); Cohen Media Group debuted Ash is the Purest White in seven theaters with an estimated $45,150 for a $6,450 per theater average; The Orchard's The Hummingbird Project opened in four theaters with an estimated $36,027 ($9,007 PTA); and Oscilloscope's Combat Obscura brought in an estimated $15,500 from 10 locations ($1,550 PTA).

    Next weekend will see the release of Jordan Peele's Us opening in over 3,600 theaters. The thriller serves as the director's follow-up to the monster 2017 hit Get Out and it has already generated a slew of great reviews out of the SXSW Film Festival.

    US Box Office: Jordan Peele's 'Us' Delivers a Mind-Blowing $70 Million Debut

    Universal's release of Jordan Peele's Us dominated the domestic box office, not only out-performing the opening weekends for several recent horror hits, but delivering the second largest opening ever for a live-action, original picture, topping the weekend box office with over $70 million. As a result, the 2019 box office continues to improve over the month of March after struggling to begin the year. Overall, this weekend was the third straight to outperform the same weekend last year.

    At #1, with an estimated $70.25 million (~49.6% of all tickets sold among the top 12 films), Us topped the weekend box office with the third largest opening of all-time for an R-rated horror film, blowing away 2018's The Nun ($53.8m opening) and placing behind Universal's own Halloween, which opened with $76.2 million last October. The film also decimated the opening for Peele's previous film Get Out, which was a massive hit back in 2017 following a $33.3 million debut. Get Out would go on to gross over $176 million domestically, ranking as the third largest horror film of all-time domestically.

    One mind-blowing stat is to note that while animated features such as Inside Out ($90.4m), Zootopia ($75m), The Incredibles ($70.46m) and Finding Nemo ($70.25m) opened higher, the $70.25 million debut for Us is the largest opening for a live-action, original film since Avatar's $77 million debut back in 2009. On a list dominated by sequels it's not often original content is seen to climb quite so high.

    Additionally, Us delivered the largest opening for an original, R-rated film, topping Universal's Ted ($54.4m) not to mention the largest opening for an original horror film, topping A Quiet Place ($50.2m). The performance comes with a "B" CinemaScore, which is a notch below the "A-" for Get Out, but is still a solid audience grade for a horror film. The overall opening weekend audience was split 50/50 among males and females and 53% of the overall audience was aged 25 or older.

    Looking ahead at its domestic prospects, it's not easy to determine just how high Us will climb. While Get Out pushed over $176 million, Halloween finished its run with $159.3 million, though the latter was certainly a product of nostalgia and seasonal relevance. That said, one would expect Us to play closer to Get Out and push over $200 million, but how far over? On average, films that open anywhere from $65-75 million deliver a 3.36x multiplier, which would suggest a domestic performance around $236+ million, which seems like as good a bet as any right now.

    Internationally, Us debuted in 47 markets and brought in an estimated $16.7 million led by a $3.67 million opening in the UK to go along with a $1.98 million France debut, $1.36 million in Germany and $1.17 million launch in Spain. Next weekend's key markets include openings in Korea, Russia and Australia followed by openings in Italy (Apr 4), Mexico (May 3) and finally Japan on August 23.

    Disney's release of Marvel's Captain Marvel fell to second place as it begins its third weekend in release, dipping -48.5% and delivering an estimated $35 million for a domestic cume that now tops $321 million. The performance makes it the tenth largest domestic release in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and places it just outside the top twenty among all superhero films.

    Internationally, Captain Marvel delivered an estimated $52.1 million from 54 markets, pushing the film's international cume to $588.8 million for a global tally topping $910 million. The film now ranks as the seventh largest global release in the MCU and will soon become the seventh film in the franchise to top $1 billion worldwide.

    In third, is Paramount's Wonder Park, which dipped -43% in its sophomore frame, delivering an estimated $9 million for a domestic cume that is now just shy of $30 million. The film also added $5 million internationally this weekend for an overseas cume that now totals $10.2 million.

    Lionsgate's release of CBS Films's Five Feet Apart dropped -34% in its second weekend, pulling in an estimated $8.75 million for a domestic cume that stands at $26.5 million. The film also expanded its international footprint this weekend, now playing in 37 markets from which it brought in an estimated $6.2 million for an overall international cume that stands at $6.3 million. This weekend saw the film deliver a #1 finish in Italy with an estimated $1.7 million along with a $1.4 million opening in Brazil and $1.1 million debut in Mexico. Next weekend the film will open in Australia followed by debuts in South Korea (Apr 11) and Russia (May 1).

    Rounding out the top five is Universal and DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, dipping just -30% for a $6.5 million weekend and a domestic cume that now tops $145 million as it enters its fifth week in release. Internationally the film added another $6 million from 62 markets still in play, pushing its worldwide cume over $488 million. The film still ranks as the third largest release in the franchise worldwide, but will soon top the original's $494.9 million globally, though the first sequel's $621.5 million global tally appears well out of reach.

    Outside the top five, A24's Gloria Bell had a strong expansion this weekend, delivering an estimated $1.8 million from 654 theaters (+615) for a $2.5 million domestic cume as the Julianne Moore starrer enters its third weekend in release.

    Next weekend will be quite interesting as Us will look to hold on similarly to Get Out, which dipped just -15% in its second weekend, but audiences will have a lot to choose from including the release of Disney's Dumbo, which is tracking well and looking to open in over 4,000 locations along with Neon's The Beach Bum in over 750 theaters and Pure Flix's Unplanned, which will launch in approximately 1,000 locations.

    USA: Disney's 'Dumbo' Flies to #1 While 'Captain Marvel' Nears $1 Billion Worldwide

    Disney's Dumbo was unable to reach studio or industry expectations, but still managed a #1 finish, making for the third different #1 film at the domestic weekend box office in as many weeks. Meanwhile holdovers such as Us and Captain Marvel continued their strong performances and Pure Flix's release of the anti-abortion drama Unplanned managed to out-perform expectations and find itself a spot in the top five.

    With an estimated $45 million, Disney's Dumbo topped the weekend box office though fell short of the studio's $50+ million expectations and well short of what some thought would be a $60+ million debut. While the performance is well ahead of select, recent Disney releases such as Christopher Robin ($24.6m opening), Alice Through the Looking Glass ($26.9m opening) and Pete's Dragon ($21.5m opening), it's well short of films such as Cinderella ($67.9 million opening), which online ticket retailer Fandango.com reported Dumbo was outpacing in advance ticket sales.

    Looking ahead, Dumbo did receive an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, which were 53% female and 54% were 25 years of age or older. That said, looking at Disney's other live action reimaginings, the average multiplier is 3.2x, which would suggest Dumbo is on its way to a domestic performance around $145 million. Given the reported $170 million budget, that puts a lot of heavy lifting on the international market.

    Internationally, Dumbo debuted day-and-date in all markets globally with an estimated $71 million, which includes #1 openings in not only the US, but also in France, Italy, Spain, Russia, UK, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico along with being the #1 western release in China and Japan. Leading the way was a $10.7 million opening in China followed by the UK ($7.4m), Mexico ($7.2m), Russia ($4.4m), Italy ($3.8m), France ($3.6m), Spain ($3.6m), Brazil ($2.5m), Japan ($2.4m) and Australia ($2.1m).

    Universal's Us dipped -53% in its second weekend, which is below Mojo's aggressive forecast, but pretty much right on par with what should be expected for a genre film of this sort. The film's $33.6 million three-day pushed the domestic gross over $128 million in just ten days. While the film continues to pace well ahead of select, comp titles, next weekend should prove interesting as it will face some serious genre competition with the release of Paramount's Pet Sematary.

    Internationally, Us added 14 additional markets and brought in an estimated $22.6 million from 60 total markets for an overseas cume that now totals $46.3 million for a worldwide tally just shy of $175 million. Among new territories, Korea led the way with a $6.9 million opening followed by Australia ($2.7m) and Russia ($1.4m). Next weekend Us will open in Italy followed by debuts in Mexico (May 3) and Japan (Aug 23).

    Disney's Captain Marvel lands in third, dipping -40% as it begins its fourth weekend in release with an estimated $20.5 million three-day. This pushes the film's domestic gross over $353 million as it currently ranks as the eighth largest domestic release in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

    Internationally, Captain Marvel added another $26.4 million from 54 markets, pushing the overseas total to $636.8 million and the global tally over $990 million. The film will soon top $1 billion at the global box office, becoming the seventh film in the MCU to reach that mark and the 38th film all-time.

    Pulling into fourth is Lionsgate's release of the CBS drama Five Feet Apart, which delivered an estimated $6.25 million, dipping just -27% as it kicks off its third week in release with a domestic gross that now tops $35 million. Internationally, the film added another $6.2 million from 39 markets for an international cume that now totals $14.8 million and a global cume topping $50 million.

    Rounding out the top five is Pure Flix's Unplanned. The anti-abortion drama debuted in 1,059 theaters and managed a $6.1 million ($5,745 PTA) opening weekend performance, aided by pre-release theater buyouts and previews totaling $1.5 million. The film received an "A+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, which were 58% female and 70% aged 25 years or older. The performance marks the second largest debut for Pure Flix behind the $7.6 million debut for God's Not Dead 2 and they did so tapping into online advertising as the likes of Lifetime, Hallmark, HGTV and others refused to show the ads for the film.

    Outside the top five, Bleecker's Hotel Mumbai had a solid expansion into 924 theaters (+920) bringing in an estimated $3.16 million for a $3,423 per theater average.

    Neon's The Beach Bum from director Harmony Korine rounded out the top ten as it was unable to deliver on even the lower end of expectations, bringing in just $1.8 million from 1,100 theaters.

    Next weekend features a couple of higher profile releases including WB's release of New Line's Shazam! in over 4,100 locations alongside the latest Stephen King adaptation, Paramount's release of Pet Sematary, which is expected to debut in over 3,400 theaters. Additionally, STX will open The Best of Enemies with Sam Rockwell and Taraji P. Henson in over 1,600 theaters.

    US Box Office: 'Shazam!' Leads Weekend with $53M Debut; 'Pet Sematary' Digs Up $25M

    The weekend played out mostly as expected with the release of Shazam! from Warner Bros. and New Line securing the top spot in both the domestic and worldwide marketplace while Paramount's release of Pet Sematary scored the second largest opening for a Stephen King adaptation. STX's The Best of Enemies, however, fell a bit below expectations as April is off to a solid start, but it won't be until the release of Avengers: Endgame at the end of the month that we'll be able to see whether this April will be able to challenge last year's record monthly grosses.

    At the top of the box office, Warner Bros.'s release of New Line's Shazam! delivered just above expectations with an estimated $53.4 million for a cumulative total that stands at $56.7 million once you add in grosses from the late March, Fandango special event. The film was well received by critics and opening weekend audiences alike, the latter of which giving the film an "A" CinemaScore with males making up 57% of the crowd and 55% of the opening weekend audience coming in aged 25 years or older.

    Looking ahead, Shazam!'s debut isn't too far behind Marvel's Ant-Man ($57.2m opening). Ant-Man went on to deliver a 3.1x multiplier in 2015, which is just ahead of the average multiplier for a film in the DC Extended Universe. This would suggest Shazam! could be looking at a $160+ million domestic run should word of mouth give it an assist over the coming weeks ahead of the April 26 opening of Avengers: Endgame.

    Internationally, Shazam! generated an estimated $102 million from 79 international markets as the film opened day-and-date in virtually all overseas territories outside of Japan, where it will open on April 19. Leading the way was a $30.9 million opening in China followed by Mexico ($6.2m), UK ($5.3m), Russia ($5.2m), Brazil ($5.1m), Indonesia ($4.1m), Korea ($3.9m), Australia ($3.4m), France ($2.8m), Taiwan ($2.7m), Thailand ($2.2m), Malaysia ($2m), Italy ($2m), Spain ($1.7m) and Germany ($1.4m). The film's overall worldwide debut comes in a $158.8 million.

    In the runner-up position, Paramount's release of Pet Sematary delivered an estimated $25 million, which is in line with studio expectations for the $21 million production. The performance ranks as the second largest opening for a Stephen King adaptation, behind only 2017's monster hit It. The film received a "C+" CinemaScore with 52% of the opening weekend crowd coming in female while 58% of the audience was aged 25 years or older.

    Looking ahead, the film's performance is similar to the $25.7 million debut for Evil Dead remake, which opened over the same weekend in 2013 and went on to gross just over $54 million. Similarly, 2007's Halloween remake debuted with $26.3 million and went on to gross $54.2 million while the 2005 remake of The Amityville Horror opened with $23.5 million and went on to gross over $65 million.

    Internationally, Pet Sematary opened in the first 46 international markets, representing 73% of the marketplace, and grossed $17.3 million. The performance was led by a $3.1 million opening in Russia followed by the UK ($2m), Mexico ($2m) and Germany ($1.5m). The film will open in France and Korea next weekend followed by a May 9 release in Brazil.

    Taking the bronze medal, Disney's Dumbo took a hard fall, dropping -60% in its second weekend for an estimated $18.2 million, bringing the film's domestic me to over $76 million. The reported $170 million production is struggling to match expectations for a Disney title of this sort, suffering a sophomore weekend drop similar to 2016's Alice Through the Looking Glass, which only managed a 2.86x multiplier. Internationally, the pic brought in an estimated $39.6 million from 55 markets for an overseas cume that now totals $137.5 million and a global tally that is now just shy of $214 million.

    Universal's Us took a -58% dip in its second weekend as it would appear Pet Sematary did take a chunk out of its box office this weekend as the film has now delivered over $152 million as it enters its third week in release and now ranks among the top five R-rated horror films ever. The film also added another $10.3 million internationally this weekend as its global cume now totals over $216 million.

    Rounding out the top five is Disney's Captain Marvel with an estimated $12.68 million as the superhero film has now topped $374 million at the domestic box office. The film also added another $14.1 million internationally for a global cume that now stands at $1.037 billion, which moves it into the top 30 all-time.

    Outside the top five, STXFilms's The Best of Enemies came in below expectations with an estimated $4.5 million on 1,705 screens. The film received an "A" CinemaScore from opening day crowds while playing to a weekend audience that was 63% female and 79% was 25 and older.

    Next weekend will be busy with four new wide releases beginning with United Artists Releasing's debut of Laika's new title, Missing Link, opening in ~3,500 theaters; Lionsgate will open Hellboy in ~3,200 locations; Universal's comedy Little is set for over 2,600 theaters; and Aviron will debut After in approximately 2,000 locations.

    Good for Shazam! I may have to check it out now, seems Dumbo isn't exactly doing that great for Disney.

    'Shazam!' #1 for Second Weekend as 'Little' Tops 'Hellboy' to Lead Newcomers

    After four straight weekends featuring a new #1 film at the weekend box office, Warner Bros.'s Shazam! took the crown for a second weekend in a row, topping a flurry of newcomers that delivered varying returns. Universal's Little secured the runner-up position, out-performing Lionsgate and Summit's Hellboy, which struggled amidst a flurry of negative reviews ahead of release not to mention reports of tension during production. Additionally, United Artists's release of Laika's Missing Link missed expectations and Aviron's After out-performed pre-weekend expectations.

    At the top of the box office is Shazam!, which delivered an estimated $25.1 million in its second weekend, a drop of -53%, for a domestic cume just shy of $95 million. The film also topped the global box office for a second weekend in a row as it added $35.9 million internationally for an overseas cume that now stands at $163.9 million and a global tally reaching $258.8 million.

    Universal's Little led all newcomers, delivering an estimated $15.5 million in its debut, for a second place finish. The $20 million production received a "B+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences and, over the weekend, played to a crowd that was 65% female and 56% were aged 25 or older. Additionally, the film played to a crowd that was 43% African American.

    Internationally, Little debuted in 11 markets with an estimated $1.9 million led by a $751k debut in the UK. Upcoming key market releases include a June 14 debut in Spain followed by France (Jun 19), Italy (Jul 4) and Russia (Aug 8).

    Lionsgate's release of Summit's Hellboy struggled in its debut, delivering a mere $12 million, well below the studio's anticipated $17-20 million opening. The film faced plenty of negativity heading into its weekend from mostly negative reviews to reports of tension during production. Opening weekend audiences were 56% male and 64% aged 25 or older and of that crowd, opening day moviegoers gave the pic a disappointing "C" CinemaScore.

    In fourth is Paramount's Pet Sematary, which dipped -59% in its sophomore frame, which was to be expected, finishing with an estimated $10 million three-day, pushing the film's domestic gross over $41 million after ten days in release. Internationally, the film added $12.6 million this weekend, pushing its overseas cume to $35.7 million for global tally that now stands at $76.8 million.

    Rounding out the top five is Disney's Dumbo, which dipped -49.6% as it entered its third week in release, finishing with an estimated $9.18 million and a domestic cume just shy of $90 million. The film also added another $22 million internationally this weekend for an overseas cume that now totals $177 million and a global tally that stands at $267 million.

    Elsewhere, Aviron's After topped pre-weekend expectations, delivering an estimated $6 million from 2,138 locations. The film received a "B" CinemaScore from opening day audiences while playing to a crowd that was 76% female and 73% of the overall opening weekend crowd was under the age of 25 as young females powered the film's debut.

    Finishing in ninth is United Artists's release of Laika's Missing Link, which was expected to deliver anywhere from $9-12 million this weekend, but could only muster $5.8 million from 3,413 locations, and a disappointing $1,712 per theater average. As noted in our pre-weekend forecast, the pic was pacing behind recent Laika releases as well as last March's Sherlock Gnomes, suggesting awareness and interest in the film was light heading into the weekend. In the end, Laika's brand wasn't enough to propel the film's opening alone, resulting in the worst wide opening for the animation house to date.

    Next week sees a pair of films opening on Wednesday, including Fox's Breakthrough and Disney's latest Disneynature documentary, Penguins. Then, on Friday, Warner Bros. will release The Curse of La Llorona in over 3,400 locations as we inch closer to the release of Avengers: Endgame at the end of the month.

    'Curse of La Llorona' Lifted to #1 Over Easter Weekend

    Leading the Easter weekend charge was Warner Bros. and New Line's The Curse of La Llorona, which topped expectations as audiences continue to crave new horror, giving WB and New Line their third straight weekend at #1. Disney and Fox's Breakthrough delivered a top three performance following its Wednesday debut and Disney also saw Captain Marvel enjoy a nice bump over the weekend, topping $400 million domestically, as audiences prep for the release of Avengers: Endgame next weekend.

    Warner Bros. and New Line took the weekend's top spot for the third weekend in a row, this time with debut of the R-rated horror The Curse of La Llorona, which delivered an estimated $26.5 million, well ahead of expectations. While pretty much dismissed by critics (32% on RottenTomatoes and 41 on Metacritic), the film received a "B-" CinemaScore from opening weekend audiences which were 51% male with 60% of the crowd coming in aged 25 or older.

    Internationally, Curse of La Llorona launched in 71 markets, bringing in an estimated $30 million for a $56.5 million global launch. The debut was led by a $5.3 million opening in Mexico, followed by Colombia ($2.4m), France ($2.1m), Spain ($1.7m), Indonesia ($1.6m), Korea ($1.3m), India ($1.1m) and Russia ($1.1m). The film still has a few markets where it has yet to open, including the UK on May 3 and Japan a week later on May 10.

    Along with a #1 finish, WB and New Line also secured the runner up position with Shazam!, which topped the past two weekends and held on very well in its junior frame, dipping -29% for an estimated $17.3 million as the film's domestic cume now tops $121 million. Internationally, the film added another $22 million this weekend, pushing its overseas cume to $201.5 for a worldwide gross that now tops $322 million.

    Debuting in third place is Disney's first official Fox release since acquiring the studio in the faith-based feature Breakthrough, which opened on Wednesday and delivered an estimated $11.1 million for the three-day and $14.6 million over the five-day. The film received an "A" CinemaScore from opening day audiences and played to a crowd that was 65% female and 70% were aged 25 or older.

    Internationally, Breakthrough is now in its second weekend and playing in 20 key markets where it added another $2.8 million this weekend for an overseas total that now stands at a $5.9 million. The film's top market is Brazil where it has already grossed $3.8 million after two weekends in release.

    Disney also landed in fourth position with an excellent performance from Captain Marvel, which saw a +6% increase over last weekend despite losing 322 locations. The film played in 2,653 theaters this weekend and delivered an estimated $9.1 million for a domestic cume that now tops $400 million. The film is now the 34th film to ever top that figure domestically and the seventh film to reach that mark in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film also added another $6.5 million this weekend overseas for an international cume that now stands at $689.5 million and a global tally that is now $1.089 billion.

    Rounding out the top five is Universal's Little, which dipped -45% in its second weekend with an estimated $8.45 million for a domestic cume just shy of $30 million. The film also added another $1.4 million internationally for an overseas cume that now stands at $4.8 million and a worldwide tally topping $34 million.

    Finishing outside the top ten is Disneynature's Penguins, which brought in an estimated $2.3 million over the three-day after opening on Wednesday. The performance comes in below expectations and is the worst debut for a Disneynature film yet, even if you take into account the overall $3.3 million it took in over its first five days of release. Penguins received an "A" CinemaScore from opening day audiences and played to a crowd that was 56% female and 48% were aged 25 or older.

    Also outside the top ten, Fox International's Kalank opened in 320 locations on Wednesday and delivered an estimated $1.3 million over the three day for a $1.8 million five-day debut. The film also debuted in two Fox markets this weekend led by a $9.5 million opening in India.

    Additionally, Bleecker Street expanded the release of Teen Spirit into 696 theaters (+692) and brought in $250,536 for a disappointing $360 per theater average. While not the worst ever, the performance does rank inside the top 25 worst all-time.

    Next weekend sees the release of Avengers: Endgame, which will debut in over 4,400 locations and has already seen estimates as high as the never-before-reached $300 million for the film's opening weekend.
