    'Maleficent: Mistress of Evil' Tops the Weekend, but Falls Short of Expectations



    This weekend saw the release of two new sequels and Disney's Maleficent: Mistress of Evil topped the chart as expected, albeit with a lighter performance than expected. However, Sony's Zombieland: Double Tap came in on the high side of expectations while WB's Joker continued its strong run and will soon top $250 million domestically. Elsewhere, Neon's Parasite, A24's The Lighthouse and Fox Searchlight's Jojo Rabbit all had strong showings in limited release.

    With an estimated $36 million, Disney's Maleficent: Mistress of Evil opened atop the weekend box office, but failed to reach studio or industry expectations. The performance is also nearly half of the $69.4 million opening for the 2014 original. We saw early signs the film might struggle as noted in our weekend preview when looking at IMDb page view data, but it does appear those that did make their way to theaters to see the follow up enjoyed it, giving the film an "A" CinemaScore and it currently holds a 96% audience score on RottenTomatoes. Overall, the film played to a crowd that was 56% female and 54% were aged 25 or older, compared to 60% female for the original, which also played a little younger.

    Internationally, Maleficent launched in all major markets, bringing in an estimated $117 million for a $153 million global debut. Leading the way was a $22.4 million opening in China followed by Russia ($10.7m), Mexico ($7.8m), Indonesia ($4.8m), Italy ($4.7m), Korea ($4.6m), Brazil ($4.5m), UK ($4.3m), France ($3.9m), Thailand ($3.7m), Philippines ($3.5m), Germany ($3.4m) and Spain ($3.2m).

    In second is yet another strong performance from WB's Joker, dipping -48% in its third weekend in release. The film's three-day estimate comes in at $29.2 million for a domestic cume that now tops $247 million. Internationally, the film added another $77.8 million for an overseas cume that now tops $490 million and a worldwide total that now stands at $737.5 million.

    Sony's Zombieland: Double Tap is the weekend's other new wide release and it delivered on the high end of industry expectations, bringing in an estimated $26.7 million for the three-day weekend. Notable in this day and age, it also debuted higher than its predecessor, outperforming the $24.7 million opening for Zombieland. Of course, given that film opened ten years ago it isn't exactly an apples-to-apples comparison. The film received a "B+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences and played to a crowd that was 57% male — which is almost the exact opposite compared to the first film — and 56% of the overall audience was aged 25+.

    Internationally, Double Tap debuted in one market last weekend and is now playing in 17 overseas markets where it grossed $5 million this weekend for a cume that currently stands at $5.3 million. The UK led all markets with a $1.7 million performance this weekend followed by Australia with a $1.3 million debut. Looking ahead, the film will open in Russia, Brazil and Mexico next weekend followed by openings in France (Oct 30), Germany (Nov 7), South Korea (Nov 13), Italy (Nov 14) and Japan (Nov 22).

    In its second weekend of release, United Artists Releasing's animated comedy The Addams Family grossed an estimated $16.05 million over the weekend, pushing the film's domestic cume to $56.8 million after ten days in release.

    Rounding out the top five is Paramount's Gemini Man dipping -59% as it kicks off its sophomore frame with an estimated $8.5 million for a domestic cume that now stands at $36.5 million. Internationally, the film brought in an estimated $33.4 million this weekend, the bulk of which coming from a $21 million opening in China. The film's overseas cume now stands at $82.2 million for a global total reaching $118.7 million.

    Outside of the top five, Focus's Downton Abbey reached a milestone recently, becoming the studio's highest grossing film ever at the domestic box office. With an estimated $3.08 million as it enters its fifth week in release, the film's domestic cume now stands at $88.6 million, besting the previous record held by 2005's Brokeback Mountain with $83 million.

    Finishing just outside the top ten is Neon's release of Parasite, which is now playing in just 33 locations (+30) and brought in an estimated $1.2 million ($37,616 PTA) for a domestic cume that now stands at $1.8 million after ten days in release.

    Another strong performance in limited release comes from A24's The Lighthouse, which debuted in eight locations in NY, LA, SF, Boston, and Washington D.C. with an estimated $419,764 ($52,471 PTA). The film, which stars Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe expands nationwide next weekend, expected to play in over 500 theaters.

    Not too far behind it is yet another limited release in Fox Searchlight's Jojo Rabbit, which debuted this weekend in just five locations and brought in an estimated $350,000, topping the chart with a $70,000 per theater average. The film received an "A" CinemaScore and played to a crowd that was 51% female. Looking ahead, it will add eight new markets next weekend while expanding further in New York and Los Angeles bringing the screen total to between 50+ locations.

    Elsewhere in limited release, National Geographic's The Cave brought in $22,100 from two theaters; Freestyle's Immortal Hero launched in 12 locations with an estimated $18,845 ($1,570 PTA); IFC's Greener Grass opened in two locations and brought in an estimated $14,133); Music Box's opened a pair of films including By the Grace of God in two theaters with an estimated $8,188 and Stuffed in one location with an estimated $1,534

    Next weekend Screen Gems will release the cop thriller Black and Blue in ~2,000 theaters; STX will get into the Halloween season with Countdown in 2,600 locations and 101 Studios will go wide with The Current War: Director's Cut in an as yet undisclosed number of locations.

    Re: Box Office - Updated Every Monday

    Joker narrowly holds off Maleficent to return to the weekend's top spot.



    It's a narrow race at the top of the box office, but based on estimates WB's Joker was able to return to the weekend #1 spot after a brief respite last weekend as Disney's Maleficent: Mistress of Evil falls to second in its sophomore frame Meanwhile it was an equally tight race for third as well as fifth with the new releases of Countdown and Black and Blue competing for that last spot in the top five.

    Returning to the top of the weekend box office is WB's Joker, which dipped just -35% as it entered its fourth week in release with an estimated $18.9 million three-day. The film's domestic cume now tops $277.5 million, which is enough to make it the seventh largest R-rated release domestically of all-time. Internationally the film added another $47.8 million this weekend, pushing the film's overseas total to $571.5 million for a global tally totaling nearly $850 million. This makes it the fifth largest DC Comics adaptation globally of all-time, topping Wonder Woman ($821.8m) and just behind Batman v Superman ($873.6m).

    Dropping to second after one weekend at #1 is Disney's Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, which fell -49.8% in its second weekend for an estiamted $18.5 million and a domestic cume that now totals $65.4 million. Internationally the film added another $64.3 million for an overseas cume that now tops $228 million for a global tally just shy of $294 million.

    In its third weekend of release, United Artists Releasing's animated comedy The Addams Family had the lowest drop on the board among holdovers, dropping just -28% as it enters its third week in release with an estimated $11.7 million three-day, lifting it to third place for a domestic cume that now stands at $72.8 million. Internationally, the film played in 19 markets this weekend and brought in an estimated $10.5 million for an overseas total that currently stands at $11.2 million for a worldwide cume totaling $84 million.

    The Addams Family's hold on third place, however, is slight as Sony's Zombieland: Double Tap came in with an estimated $11.6 million, dipping -57% in its second weekend for a domestic cume that now stands at $47 million. Internationally, the film brought in $9 million this weekend as it is now playing in 40 markets for an overseas cume now totaling $16.6 million and a global cume that stands at $63.6 million.


    STXfilms
    Rounding out the top five is STXfilms's horror thriller Countdown with an estimated $9 million debut. The performance for the $6.5 million production is on par with expectations while earning a "C+" from opening day audiences. The opening weekend crowd was evenly split 50% male and female with 78% coming in under the age of 35. Internationally, the film debuted in 16 markets with an estimated $1.7 million, led by a $480k launch in the UK.

    In sixth we find Screen Gems's R-rated action/thriller Black and Blue, which took in an estimated $8.3 million to go along with an excellent, "A+" CinemaScore. The film played to a crowd that was 54% male with 66% of the overall crowd coming in aged 25 or older.

    Elsewhere in the top ten, A24's The Lighthouse had a solid showing as it expanded into 586 locations (+578) with an estimated $3.08 million and will expand further this next weekend as its domestic cume currently stands at $3.66 million after ten days in release.

    Just behind it, 101 Studios's release of The Current War: Director's Cut finished on par with expectations, delivering an estimated $2.7 million from 1,022 locations. The film received a "B" CinemaScore from opening day audiences while playing to a crowd that was 55% male and 35% of the audience was aged 35 or older.

    Outside the top ten there is plenty to mention beginning with Fox International's Housefull 4, which opened in 315 locations with an estimated $880,000 ($2,794 PTA); Kanye West's Jesus is King, which debuted in 372 IMAX locations with an estimated $830,000 ($2,231 PTA); and WB's Bruce Springsteen doc Western Stars opened in 537 theaters with an estimated $560,000 ($1,043 PTA).

    Further down the list, additional limited releases include Atlas's No Safe Spaces, which opened in one theater with an estimated $45,236; Metrograph's re-release of Downtown 81 in one theater with an estimated $25,000; and Sony Classics's release of Frankie in four theaters with an estimated $22,941 ($5,735 PTA).

    Next weekend sees the release of Paramount's Terminator: Dark Fate in over 3,500 theaters; Arctic Dogs will play in over 3,600 locations; Harriet will open in ~2,000 theaters; and Warner Bros. will release Motherless Brooklyn in over 1,250 theaters.

    Re: Box Office - Updated Every Monday

    Ford v Ferrari Races to #1 while Joker becomes first Rated R film to top 1 billion globally.



    Fox's Ford v Ferrari more than lived up to the most aggressive of pre-weekend expectations, delivering a #1 performance at the domestic weekend box office. However, Sony's Charlie's Angels struggled mightily in its debut, failing to reach the lowest of expectations, which means the film's third place finish puts the weekend's overall performance into perspective. In better news, WB's Joker became the fourth DC Comics adaptation to ever top $1 billion at the global box office and the first R-rated movie to ever reach that milestone.

    Finishing in the winner's circle atop the weekend box office, is Fox's Ford v Ferrari with an estimated $31 million. The performance is well ahead of Mojo's pre-weekend forecast and even tops the most optimistic of industry expectations and comes with an outstanding "A+" CinemaScore. The film played to a male-dominated crowd with men making up 62% of the audience and 79% of the overall crowd coming in aged 25 or older.

    Internationally, Ford v Ferrari brought in $21.4 million from 41 markets for a $52 million global debut, enjoying #1 openings in several including Russia, which serves as the film's top international market with a $3.2 million debut. Additional openings include the UK ($2.3m), France ($2.3m), Australia ($1.7m), Italy ($1.3m), Mexico ($1.1m) and Germany ($1.0m). Upcoming releases include a December 5 release in Korea followed by Japan on January 10.

    Lionsgate's Midway slipped to second this weekend, dipping -51% with an estimated $8.75 million for a domestic cume that now tops $35 million after ten days in release. The film's position in the top ten, however, is a tight one as two more films have a chance of moving up the list once actuals come in tomorrow.

    First in line, competing for second place, is Sony's Charlie's Angels, which was expected to finish anywhere from $12-13 million this weekend, but was ultimately unable to hit double digits, delivering a disappointing $8.6 million debut. The $48 million production received a "B" CinemaScore from opening weekend audiences, which were 61% female with 55% of the overall audience coming in aged 25 or older.

    Internationally, Angels began its overseas play in 26 markets with an estimated $19.3 million, including a $7.7 million opening in China. The film also brought in $1.3 million with a second place finish in Australia and another $1 million from Russia. Upcoming releases including a November 29 release in the UK followed by Spain (Dec 5), France (Dec 25), Mexico (Jan 1), Germany (Jan 2), Italy (Jan 9), Japan (Jan 21) and South Korea (Feb 26). Overall, the film is looking at a disappointing, $27.9 million global debut.

    Paramount's Playing with Fire, holding on extremely well in its sophomore frame, dipped just -33% for an estimated $8.55 million, moving the film up one spot from its opening last weekend, though once actuals come in it could move up a bit more. The film's domestic cume now stands at $25.4 million as the studio appears to have a small family hit on their hands.

    Internationally, Playing with Fire maintained its release in the same 11 markets from last weekend and added another $1.3 million for an overseas cume that now stands at $4.5 million. The film will open in Australia in mid-December followed by releases in the UK (Dec 27), Spain (Jan 17), Brazil (Jan 23) and Germany and Russia in early February.

    Rounding out the top five is Universal's Last Christmas with an estimated $6.7 million, pushing the film's domestic cume to $22.6 million after ten days in release. Internationally the film added $8.6 million for a $13 million overseas cume and a global total that now stands at $35.5 million.

    Further down the list, WB's The Good Liar debuted in 2,439 locations and delivered on expectations with an estimated $5.65 million, The film received a "B" CinemaScore while playing to a crowd that was 60% female with 85% of the overall crowd coming in aged 35 or older. Internationally, the film began playing overseas last weekend and is now playing in 12 markets where it grossed an estimated $1.5 million for an international cume that now stands at $3.9 million for a worldwide total reaching $9.6 million.


    In eighth position is where WB's Joker finished this weekend at the domestic box office, adding another $5.6 million to its now $322.6 million domestic cume. However, it's the film's global performance that is making news this weekend as the film became only the fourth DC Comics adaptation, the seventh release of 2019 and the first ever R-rated movie to top the $1 billion mark. Equally impressive is the Joker is only the third movie ever to top $1 billion without a China release, the other two being fellow DC adaptation The Dark Knight and 2006's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.

    Overall, to go along with its $322.6 million domestically, Joker added $13 million this weekend internationally for an overseas cume totaling $694 million and a global tally reaching $1.017 billion. The performance currently places the film 43d all-time at the worldwide box office, just ahead of The Dark Knight ($1.004b).

    In limited release, A24's Waves delivered an estimated $144,562 for a chart-topping, $36,140 per theater average. The film will open in top markets this coming weekend and continue to rollout slowly into the holiday season. Additionally, Roadside debuted The Warrior Queen of Jhansi in 276 locations with an estimated $125,395 ($454 PTA) and Utopia's Mickey and the Bear opened in one theater with an estimated $9,523.

    Next weekend will see Disney's Frozen II explode into over 4,200 theaters alongside Sony's A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood in 3,100 locations and STX's action thriller 21 Bridges, debuting in ~2,700 theaters.

    You can check out all of this weekend's estimated results right here and we'll be updating our charts with weekend actuals on Monday afternoon.

    Frozen II delivers $350 million global debut



    SUNDAY AM UPDATE: Disney's Frozen II delivered a monster debut, bringing in an estimated $127 million domestically, which serves as the largest animated opening ever outside the summer corridor and a record animated opening for the month of November. In fact, the performance is the fifth largest November opening of all-time, topping the $125 million opening for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 back in 2010. The film played to an audience that was 59% female with families making up 70% of the opening weekend crowd.

    Internationally the film opened with an estimated $223.2 million for an estimated $350 million global debut, opening at #1 in all markets where it released with China leading the way with an estimated $53 million. Additional markets include a $31.5 million debut in Korea followed by Japan ($18.2m), UK ($17.8m), Germany ($14.9m), France ($13.4m), Mexico ($9.3m), Indonesia ($6.2m), Philippines ($6.1m) and Spain ($5.8m). Next weekend sees openings in Italy, Russia and Australia as well as Greece, New Zealand, Trinidad, Chile and Venezuela.

    Sony and TriStar's A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood debuted near expectations, bringing in an estimated $13.5 million from 3,235 theaters. The film played to an audience that was 52% female and skewing older, with 75% of the crowd coming in aged 25 or older.

    STXFilms's 21 Bridges brought in an estimated $9.2 million this weekend, falling a bit short of studio expectations. The film earned a "B+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences with 56% of the weekend crowd coming in male while skewing older as 75% of the weekend audience was aged 25 or older. The film also added an estimated $2.73 million internationally from 20 markets released.

    We will have actuals on Monday morning, but for now you can click here for this weekend's estimates.

    SATURDAY AM UPDATE: Disney's Frozen II is on its way to a record breaking opening after bringing in an estimated $41.8 million on Friday. Expectations now are for the film to deliver a $130+ million three-day performance. The debut will serve as the largest animated opening ever in November, nearly doubling the $70.4 million opening for Incredibles back in 2004. At $130 million, the performance would be the fourth largest animated opening ever behind Finding Dory's $135 million debut back in June 2016. The film received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences.

    In addition to the film's domestic performance, it has so far generated $57.8 million internationally, including a $35 million two-day performance in China. This puts the film's global total as of yesterday just shy of $100 million.

    Sony and TriStar's A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood delivered an estimated $4.5 million on Friday and is currently expected to finish around $14 million for the weekend. The film received an "A" CinemaScore from opening day audiences.

    STXFilms's 21 Bridges took in an estimated $3.3 million on Friday in 2,665 theaters and is expected to deliver a debut around $10 million. The film received a "B+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences.

    You can check out all of the Friday estimates right here and we'll be back tomorrow morning with a complete look at the weekend.

    FRIDAY AM UPDATE: Disney's Frozen II posted a solid $8.5 million from Thursday evening previews. The performance is just behind the $9 million in previews for Finding Dory and trails the $12 million for Toy Story 4 by $3.5 million.

    Sony and TriStar's A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood took in $900,000 on Thursday night with shows beginning at 4:30PM in 2,865 locations. The studio is currently anticipating a $14 million debut.

    Lastly, STXfilms's 21 Bridges took in an estimated $700,000 during Thursday night previews.

    We'll take a closer look at things tomorrow morning once Friday estimates come in. For now you can check out our weekend preview below.

    WEEKEND PREVIEW: Following one of the worst weekends of the year and the second straight weekend in which the top ten failed to generate a combined $100 million, this weekend is expected to see a single film top that figure all on its own. Disney will release Frozen II, the sequel to the 2013 hit that delivered over $400 million at the domestic box office and over $1.27 billion worldwide, and expectations are high. In addition to that, Sony will release A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood and STX will release the action-thriller 21 Bridges, all of which hope to give the 2019 box office a much needed jolt.

    Heading into the weekend Frozen II is already breaking records in terms of pre-sales with Fandango reporting back in early November the film eclipsed first day pre-sales for all other animated films in the company's 19-year history. Fellow online ticket retailer Atom Tickets reports the film broke the same first day record as well as seeing the best pre-sales ever for an animated movie on Atom. This news leads to the film's opening weekend in which industry expectations are anywhere from $105-115 million with Disney anticipating a similar performance in the $100 million range. Historically, the largest animated opening in November is the $70.4 million opening for The Incredibles back in 2004 followed by 2018's The Grinch, which opened with $67.5 million last November.

    Interestingly enough, Frozen II's performance, in terms of IMDb page views, shows the film pacing behind the likes of previous $100+ million animated openers including Finding Dory, Minions, Incredibles 2 and Toy Story 4. It is, however, outperforming The Grinch over the two weeks leading up to release. That being said, this is hardly surprising as the four sequels we mentioned came well beyond the release of their predecessor whereas Frozen isn't so far removed from its predecessor making its characters far more top of mind. In fact, from that perspective, Frozen II is pacing much closer to its predecessor than most sequels actually do when looking at IMDb page views.

    That being said, while no animated film has opened over $100 million outside the summer corridor, we fully expect Frozen II to be the exception. We're going out with a $120 million forecast and will simply wait until the snow settles to see how this one performs. No matter how well it does this weekend, should audiences take to it as critics have — 78% on RottenTomatoes and 65 on Metacritic — it should continue its success well throughout the holiday season.

    Right now we're expecting Fox's Ford v Ferrari to pull into second position in its sophomore frame, after an outstanding debut last week. We're anticipating a drop around -43% and an $18 million performance, leading to a domestic cume topping $60 million by the end of the weekend. However, the question is not only can Ford v Ferrari hold on that well in its second weekend, but can it hold on that well against our next release, which also targets an adult audience and, could, in fact even outperform an $18 million three-day.

    Sony's drama A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is looking good heading the weekend. The film finds Tom Hanks portraying the late Fred Rogers, better known as Mister Rogers and star of "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood", which ran for 31 seasons and over 900 episodes from 1968-2001. The $25 million production debuted at the Toronto Film Festival in September and has earned rave reviews ever since — 97% on RottenTomatoes and 80 on Metacritic — and the studio is anticipating a $14 million opening while industry tracking is a bit higher, targeting a $17-20 million launch.

    A look at IMDb page views shows Beautiful Day pacing very well compared to recent adult-targeted features, pacing just behind both Ford v Ferrari and Midway over the two weeks leading up to release and outpacing Hanks's 2015 thriller Bridge of Spies. As for our forecast, we're looking for a $17+ million performance and won't be surprised if it outperforms that total and plays well into the holiday season.

    In fourth we come to STX's action-thriller 21 Bridges starring Chadwick Boseman, which will open in 2,665 locations this weekend with tracking suggesting a debut in the low to mid teens, but we're having a hard time justifying that number. A look at IMDb page views shows the film pacing behind the likes of Mile 22, Den of Thieves and The Foreigner, all three are action films released by STX over the last couple of years and all three debuted anywhere from $13-15 million with similar page view trends when looking at IMDb data so the fact 21 Bridges is pacing so far behind is concerning. On average, we'd expect a film similar to this one to open right around $13-14 million, so tracking makes sense, but we're lowering our expectations based on what we're seeing and projecting a performance around $10 million.

    Rounding out the top five is Paramount's Playing with Fire, which we expect to dip around -45% this weekend for a $4.5 million three-day for a domestic cume approaching $32 million by the end of the weekend.

    In limited release, Focus will debut Dark Waters in two locations in New York and Los Angeles each before expanding further next weekend and going nationwide on December 6.

    This weekend's forecast is directly below. This post will be updated on Friday morning with Thursday night preview results followed by Friday estimates on Saturday morning, and a complete weekend recap on Sunday morning.

    Frozen II (4,440 theaters) - $120.0 M
    Ford v Ferrari (3,528 theaters) - $18.0 M
    A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood (3,235 theaters) - $17.0 M
    21 Bridges (2,665 theaters) - $9.7 M
    Playing with Fire (2,760 theaters) - $4.5 M
    Midway (2,627 theaters) - $4.4 M
    Charlie's Angels (3,452 theaters) - $4.0 M
    Joker (1,410 theaters) - $3.7 M
    Last Christmas (2,411 theaters) - $3.1 M
    The Good Liar (2,454 theaters) - $2.8 M
    and are the worldwide numbers so far this year.



    Frozen II is already #22 after week 1.

    Frozen II feasts on Thanksgiving records while Knives out and Queen & Slim enjoy strong holiday openings



    The folks at Disney have full bellies after the animated feature Frozen II delivered three and five-day Thanksgiving records as the film topped $287 million domestically after just ten days in release and $739 million globally in the film's first 12 days. But it wasn't all Disney this weekend as Lionsgate's Knives Out exceeded expectations with a five-day performance topping $41 million and Universal's Queen & Slim found a place in the top five.

    With an estimated $85.2 million three-day and a $123.7 million five-day performance, Disney's Frozen II not only topped the standard and extended weekend, it delivered record performances serving as the largest three and five-day grosses over the Thanksgiving holiday frame ever. To go along with that, the film has now grossed over $287 million in just ten days of release trailing just Incredibles 2 over the same number of days, which stood at an impressive $349.7 million after just ten days. In fact, Frozen II is already the 17th highest grossing animated film ever and is showing little sign of stopping.

    Internationally, the film added another $163.8 million over the three-day and has now grossed $451 million overseas, already having topped the original Frozen in several markets, including China. That puts the global total at $738.6 million after just 12 days in release as it remains the #1 film in all markets released other than India, where it is still the #1 western title. This weekend the animated juggernaut opened in Russia ($13.7m), Italy ($8.6m) and Australia ($6.6m) with openings in South Africa, Uruguay and Paraguay set for next weekend while a January 2 release in Brazil remains the last major market where the film has yet to release.

    In second place is Lionsgate's release of Rian Johnson's Knives Out, which came in well ahead of expectations, delivering an estimated $41.7 million over the five-day weekend, serving as the 16th largest five-day Thanksgiving opening ever. The film is also looking at a strong run ahead as word of mouth seems high thanks to an "A-" CinemaScore and what is currently an 8.1/10 rating on IMDb. The opening weekend audience was 51% male with 68% of the overall crowd coming in aged 25 or older.

    Internationally, Knives Out added another $28.3 million for a $70 million global debut, which includes a $13.5 million launch in China, where it ranked #3 in the marketplace. Additional openings include a $3.8 million opening in the UK followed by Russia ($2m), Australia ($1.9m) and France ($1.5m). The film will add another 14 markets next weekend including South Korea, Denmark, Italy, Mexico and Norway.

    Fox's Ford v Ferrari keeps firing on all cylinders, dipping just -17% over the three-day with an estimated $13.2 million and a $19 million five-day performance as the film's domestic gross now stands at $81 million. Internationally it added another $10.2 million this weekend for an overseas cume totaling $62.3 million and a global tally that now tops $143 million. Russia remains the film's top international market with $8.8 million as it will open in South Korea along with Thailand, Panama and Chile next weekend with a January 10 release set for Japan.

    Sony lands in fourth position with A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, dipping just -11% in its second weekend with an estimated $11.8 million for the three-day and a $17.3 million five-day performance. The film's domestic cume now stands at $34.3 million after ten days in release.

    Rounding out the top five is Universal's Queen & Slim, delivering an estimated $11.7 million over the three-day and an estimated $15.8 million over the five-day opening. The film received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences and played to a crowd that was 51% female with 61% of the overall audience coming in aged 25 or older.

    Next weekend sees only one new wide release in STX's pickup of the animated title Playmobil, which was originally set up at Global Road until the studio shuttered its doors.

    Frozen II threepeats atop weekend box office while Playmobil bombs.



    It was yet another weekend atop the weekend box office for Disney's Frozen II, which has now topped $900 million globally, well on its way to becoming the studio's sixth 2019 release to top the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office. Meanwhile, while Focus Features saw Dark Waters finish just outside the top five in its nationwide expansion this weekend, STX's release of Playmobil failed to make the top ten, delivering the third worst opening ever for a film debuting in over 2,000 locations.

    At the top of the box office is Frozen II, dipping -59.7% with an estimated $34.7 million for a domestic cume totaling $337.6 million, making it the seventh highest grossing release of the year so far domestically. For some perspective, it wasn't until the original film's 61st day in release that it topped $337 million domestically, before going on to gross over $400 million after 57 weeks in release.

    In addition to the domestic performance, Frozen II added another $90.2 million internationally, for an overseas cume that now totals over $582 million and a global tally that now stands just shy of $920 million. This means the animated feature will soon become the eighth 2019 release to top $1 billion globally, of which Disney has released six.

    In second place is Lionsgate's release of Knives Out, which dipped just -47% for an estimated $14.15 million three-day and a domestic cume that now stands at $63.5 million. The film also added another $18.7 million internationally, pushing the overseas cume to $60.6 million for a global cume that is now just shy of $125 million. The film's top overseas market remains China with $23.6 million while it has still yet to open in Brazil (Dec 12), Germany (Jan 2) and Japan (Jan 31).

    It's a close race for third with the edge currently going to Fox's Ford v Ferrari, but just $7,000 separates it from Universal and Makeready's Queen & Slim as both films generated an estimated $6.5 million this weekend. Ford v Ferrari is now in its fourth week in release with a domestic cume totaling over $91 million while it also added another $8.3 million internationally for an international cume totaling $76.5 million and a global tally that now stands at $167.6 million. As for Queen & Slim it is entering its sophomore frame, dipping just -45% following its holiday weekend debut with a domestic cume that now stands at $26.9 million.

    Rounding out the top five is Sony's A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood with an estimated $5.2 million, pushing the film's domestic cume over $43 million as it enters its third week in release.


    Focus
    Just outside the top five is Focus's nationwide expansion of Dark Waters. The adult-targeted feature was entering a marketplace loaded with content targeting the same audience and was unable to see the kind of breakout I'm sure they were expecting, especially considering audiences seem to be taking to the film as much as critics did. That said, it did deliver an estimated $4.1 million.

    Falling well outside the top ten is STX's release of the animated feature Playmobil, which the studio picked up for domestic distribution after Global Road filed for bankruptcy in 2018. The studio is emphasizing the use of variable pricing for the film, which included a $5 a ticket experiment to "encourage and incentivize audiences to see the film, while allowing theaters to begin to explore value pricing for a first-run movie". The experiment didn't exactly pay off, resulting in an estimated $660,000 three-day from 2,337 locations and a $282 per theater average, the third worst opening average ever for a film opening in 2,000 or more locations.

    In limited release, Reliance' Panipat opened with an estimated $285,275 from 172 theaters ($1,659 PTA); Lionsgate's En Brazos de un Asesino delivered an estimated $230,000 from 160 locations ($1,438 PTA); Neon's Portrait of a Lady on Fire opened in two locations with an estimated $33,552; and 1091's Midnight Family opened at the Metrograph in New York with an estimated $3,5000.

    Next weekend sees several new releases make their way to theaters including the wide releases of Jumanji: The Next Level, Clint Eastwood's Richard Jewell and Black Christmas. Meanwhile, Uncut Gems and Bombshell will begin their limited releases as they begin their awards season runs.
    So here's an interesting fact about the Playmobil movie

    It was also a box-office bomb, grossing $13 million on a $40 million budget, and in the United States had the worst opening weekend ever for a film playing in over 2,300 theaters.

    That would $656,530 for a total. That's 280 bucks per theater. Wow!

    Sorry for the late post, been crazy busy at work.

    Think it's safe to say between this, LEGO movie 2 (not a bomb but underperformed massively compared to the first) and Ugly Dolls that the toy-to-film releases may start slowing now haha

    Re: Box Office - Updated Every Monday

    Jumanji 2 roars to a 60 million dollar opening.



    While the studio attempted to downplay expectations, Sony's Jumanji: The Next Level opened at the top end of industry expectations, leading the weekend charge with a December studio record opening and getting the box office off to a strong start for the holiday frame. Though, it has to be mentioned, that strong start didn't trickle down to the weekend's two other new wide releases as both Universal and Blumhouse's Black Christmas and WB's Richard Jewell fell well below expectations.

    The $60.1 million opening for Jumanji: The Next Level is the 13th largest December opening ever and the largest December debut for Sony. While the film will have to contend next weekend with the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the opening weekend performance, along with a strong audience reaction — which gave the film an "A-" CinemaScore — puts it in a fantastic position heading into the Christmas holiday frame. Two years ago Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle sat at $52.7 million after its first five days in release and went on to gross over $404 million domestically and nearly $1 billion worldwide, serving as the largest domestic gross in Sony's history. Can the sequel take it to the... next level?

    In terms of audience, the film played to a crowd that was 56% male and only 29% of the overall audience was over the age of 25, which speaks to its ability to appeal to a younger audience base. In fact, while the gender demographics are the same as the first film, 45% of the opening weekend audience for the first film was aged 25 or older, which means not only did the sequel bring in a larger crowd, it brought in a younger crowd at that.

    Internationally, The Next Level got its overseas start last weekend and this weekend added 34 new markets for a total of 52, from which it brought in an estimated $85.7 million, pushing its international total to $152.5 million for a $212.6 million global cume. This weekend saw the UK lead all markets with a 5-day total of $12.6 million followed by Russia ($8.9m) and Germany ($4.6m). The film has still yet to release in Italy (Dec 25), Australia (Dec 26) and Brazil (Jan 16).

    Slipping to second for the first time since release, Disney's Frozen II brought in an estimated $19.2 million to kick off its fourth week in release, pushing the film's domestic cume to $366.5 million. Added to that, the film's overseas total has now blossomed to $666 million for a global cume totaling $1.032 billion. This makes Frozen II Disney's sixth $1+ billion global release of 2019 alone. It also serves as the third Walt Disney Animations Studios release to top $1 billion alongside Frozen and Zootopia and the seventh largest animated release ever worldwide. It also now stands as the tenth largest animated release domestically of all-time, moving ahead of Inside Out.

    Third place belongs to Lionsgate's Knives Out, which added an estimated $9.25 million this weekend, pushing the film's domestic cume just shy of $80 million. In addition to that, the film added another $13.6 million from 73 international markets this weekend for an overseas cume that now stands at an estimated $83.3 million, for a global tally topping $162 million with releases in Germany (Jan 2) and Japan (Jan 31) still to come.

    Fourth and fifth place belong to the weekend's two other new wide releases, both of which were expected to reach $10+ million, but struggled to hit half that number, both finding a place within the top 50 worst openings ever. First is WB's Richard Jewell, which opened in just over 2,500 locations with an estimated $5 million. The Clint Eastwood drama was never able to get started and while it received an "A" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, it seems the abundance of adult-targeted features in theaters right now was just too much to overcome.

    Right behind Jewell is Universal and Blumhouse's Black Christmas, a remake of the 1974 holiday horror, and it was only able to muster an estimated $4.4 million from 2,625 locations. While this isn't the worst wide release for Blumhouse ever, it is the second worst wide release for a Blumhouse feature debuting in over 2,000 theaters behind 2015's bust Jem and the Holograms. And while the film entered the weekend with a 43% score on RottenTomatoes, horror films can typically withstand poor reviews, but audiences seemed to agree, giving the film a "D+" CinemaScore. Of the opening weekend crowd, 54% were female and 57% were aged 25 or older.

    Internationally, Black Christmas opened in 37 international territories including France, Spain, Germany, Australia and the U.K. & Ireland for a weekend total of $3.1 million. France led the way with a $421k debut followed by a $379k release in the UK. The film will launch in Russia and Mexico next weekend.

    Elsewhere, A24's limited release of the Safdie brothers' Uncut Gems saw the drama deliver the studio's largest per screen opening average ever, debuting with an estimated $525,498 in five locations for a $105,100 per theater average. The performance ranks as the 26th best opening average all-time. Looking ahead, the film received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences and will go wide on Christmas day, though we've yet to receive word on just how wide A24 will go with the release.

    This weekend also saw Lionsgate release the controversial Fox News drama Bombshell into four theaters in New York and Los Angeles ahead of its nationwide opening next weekend, where it delivered an estimated $312,000 for a $78,000 per theater average. The weekend crowd was 59% female while 86% of the audience was over the age of 25.

    Additionally, Fox Searchlight's release of Terrence Malick's A Hidden Life had a somewhat muted debut in five locations in NY and LA, bringing in an estimated $52,000 ($10,400 PTA). The film will expand into an additional 47 markets next weekend, bringing the theater count to 90-100 locations.

    Next weekend will see Disney debut Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in over 4,200 locations while Fox releases the animated feature Spies in Disguise in ~3,300 theaters and Universal debuts the musical stage adaptation Cats in over 3,300 locations.
    And here are the top worldwide numbers so far this year.

    So, after Star Wars, Disney will have 8 of the top 10 movies this year. That's slightly ridiculous.

    Nice to see an R-rated movie like Joker will almost assuredly retain a top 10 spot regardless of that release.

    If it makes you feel better, they absolutely loaded this year because next year looks a lot quieter by comparison.

    That's just because they're most likely devoting their resources towards Disney+, though at the very least that won't bring in the kind of money that they made this year. I've got no qualms about Disney doing well, I'm a shareholder, but it's fascinating to me that no other studio seemed to be up for any kind of competition this year.

    Oh absolutely. I have mixed feelings because this year has been so sequel/remake heavy, yet I enjoy 90% of what comes from them anyway so it's tough to really complain. Next year will have a lot more original IP's at least.

    Re: Box Office - Updated Every Monday

    'Bad Boys' repeats at #1, STX's "Gentleman' bags $11 Million dollar debut.



    Sony's Bad Boys for Life entered its second weekend with a strong holdover performance, repeating atop the weekend box office and topping $120 million domestically after just ten days in release. Meanwhile, STX's release of Guy Ritchie's The Gentlemen enjoyed a solid debut while Universal's The Turning finished just outside the top five, disappointing both critics and audiences alike.

    With an estimated $34 million, Sony's Bad Boys for Life is proving to be a hit with audiences, repeating atop the weekend box office in its second weekend, dipping just -46% compared to the film's strong debut over the holiday weekend last week. The performance pushes the film's domestic cume over $120 million after just ten days in release and it is now less than $20 million shy of already becoming the highest grossing domestic release in the Bad Boys franchise with a fourth film already in the works.

    Internationally, the film added another 19 markets and grossed $42 million this weekend, pushing the international cume to $95 million for a global tally reaching $215 million. The weekend's top market was Russia where Bad Boys for Life brought in an estimated $4.7 million followed by France ($4.1m), Belgium ($1.4m), Netherlands ($1.5m), Ukraine ($1.1m), Colombia ($1.1m) and South Africa ($1m). The United Kingdom remains the film's top overseas market where it has grossed $10.7 million thus far.

    Universal's 1917 held on very well this wLanding in fourth is STXFilms's release of Guy Ritchie's The Gentlemen, pulling in an estimated $11 million this weekend to go along with a strong critical reception and a "B+" CinemaScore from opening day crowds. STX acquired North American rights to the film from Miramax for $7 million and following this weekend's performance is planning a "significant expansion in theaters next weekend". The opening weekend audience for the film was 60% male with 55% of the audience coming in aged between 25 and 44.

    As for international rights, those remain with Miramax and following a limited release in just a few markets over the past few weeks, this weekend The Gentlemen added another 20 territories where it generated another $3.1 million, pushing the film's early international total to $22.5 million and an early global cume topping $33.5 million. The UK is still the top grossing market with an estimated $12.2 million so far while it has generated another $8.8 million in Australia and New Zealand. Key upcoming markets include France (Feb 5), Russia (Feb 13), Mexico (Feb 14) and Germany (Feb 27).

    Rounding out the top five is Sony's Jumanji: The Next Level with an estimated $7.9 million, pushing the sequel's domestic performance over $283 million. The film also added another $9.6 million this weekend internationally, bringing the global cume to $738 million.

    Just outside the top five is where we find Universal and DreamWorks's The Turning. The horror/thriller delivered an estimated $7.3 million and to go along with a poor critical response, opening day audiences gave the film a rare "F" CinemaScore, an opinion that was echoed by RottenTomatoes audiences, giving the film a 13% audience score to go along with a 3.7/10 score on IMDb. The film played to a crowd that was 52% female with 47% of the overall audience coming in aged 25 or older.

    Internationally, The Turning earned an estimated $800k from openings in 13 markets, including Mexico and the United Kingdom. Amblin Partners and Universal are distributing the film internationally, with eOne distributing on behalf of Amblin in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Spain and Benelux.

    We would also be remiss if we didn't once again mention that Lionsgate's Knives Out had the smallest drop among wide release holdovers in the top ten for the seventh week in a row, dipping just -15% for a three-day gross totaling $3.65 million and a domestic cume that now totals $151.8 million. Internationally the film has grossed nearly $135 million for a global tally topping $286 million.

    Additional notes from this past weekend include Neon's Parasite becoming the studio's highest grossing domestic release of all-time, bringing in nearly $31 million and topping I, Tonya's $30 million domestic gross from two years ago. Additionally, Disney's Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has now become only the 15th film to ever top $500 million at the domestic box office.

    In limited release, Roadside's The Last Full Measure brought in an estimated $1.05 million from 614 theaters ($1,718 PTA); Disney's release of FIP's Panga brought in an estimated $281,000 from 102 locations ($2,754 PTA); and RLJ Entertainment's release of the H.P. Lovecraft sci-fi adaptation Color Out of Space opened in 81 venues with an estimated $217,800 ($2,689 PTA). As for Color Out of Space, the Nic Cage starrer now has a domestic cume totaling $358,164 as a result of over $140k coming from advanced sneak peek showings this past Wednesday and will be adding additional theaters next weekend.

    Next weekend will see Paramount release the Blake Lively action-thriller The Rhythm Section in over 3,000 locations while UAR will test their hand with the fourth thriller of the new year already with Gretel & Hansel in over 2,500 theaters.

    You can check out all of this weekend's estimated results right here and we'll be updating our charts with weekend actuals on Monday afternoon.
    eekend, dipping just -28%. The Best Picture contender exhibited its might, delivering an estimated $15.8 million this weekend, pushing the film's domestic cume to $103.8 million. Internationally, the film added an estimated $23.7 million from 50 markets, including new openings in Brazil, Italy, Norway, Indonesia and Colombia with the international cume now reaching just shy of $97 million for a global tally that now tops $200 million.

    Universal also took home the weekend bronze as Dolittle dipped -43% in its sophomore frame, pulling in an estimated $12.5 million. The $175 million production still has plenty of work to do as its domestic cume now stands at $44.68 million. Internationally the film added $13.2 million this weekend, pushing the domestic overseas cume to $46.4 million for a global tally that currently stands just over $91 million.

    Landing in fourth is STXFilms's release of Guy Ritchie's The Gentlemen, pulling in an estimated $11 million this weekend to go along with a strong critical reception and a "B+" CinemaScore from opening day crowds. STX acquired North American rights to the film from Miramax for $7 million and following this weekend's performance is planning a "significant expansion in theaters next weekend".

The horror/thriller delivered an estimated $7.3 million and to go along with a poor critical response, opening day audiences gave the film a rare "F" CinemaScore, an opinion that was echoed by RottenTomatoes audiences, giving the film a 13% audience score to go along with a 3.7/10 score on IMDb. The film played to a crowd that was 52% female with 47% of the overall audience coming in aged 25 or older.

    Internationally, The Turning earned an estimated $800k from openings in 13 markets, including Mexico and the United Kingdom. Amblin Partners and Universal are distributing the film internationally, with eOne distributing on behalf of Amblin in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Spain and Benelux.

    We would also be remiss if we didn't once again mention that Lionsgate's Knives Out had the smallest drop among wide release holdovers in the top ten for the seventh week in a row, dipping just -15% for a three-day gross totaling $3.65 million and a domestic cume that now totals $151.8 million. Internationally the film has grossed nearly $135 million for a global tally topping $286 million.

    Additional notes from this past weekend include Neon's Parasite becoming the studio's highest grossing domestic release of all-time, bringing in nearly $31 million and topping I, Tonya's $30 million domestic gross from two years ago. Additionally, Disney's Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has now become only the 15th film to ever top $500 million at the domestic box office.

    In limited release, Roadside's The Last Full Measure brought in an estimated $1.05 million from 614 theaters ($1,718 PTA); Disney's release of FIP's Panga brought in an estimated $281,000 from 102 locations ($2,754 PTA); and RLJ Entertainment's release of the H.P. Lovecraft sci-fi adaptation Color Out of Space opened in 81 venues with an estimated $217,800 ($2,689 PTA). As for Color Out of Space, the Nic Cage starrer now has a domestic cume totaling $358,164 as a result of over $140k coming from advanced sneak peek showings this past Wednesday and will be adding additional theaters next weekend.

    Next weekend will see Paramount release the Blake Lively action-thriller The Rhythm Section in over 3,000 locations while UAR will test their hand with the fourth thriller of the new year already with Gretel & Hansel in over 2,500 theaters.

    You can check out all of this weekend's estimated results right here and we'll be updating our charts with weekend actuals on Monday afternoon.

    'Bad Boys For Life' tops Super Bowl weekend



    For a third straight weekend in a row Sony's Bad Boys for Life topped the weekend box office, and continues to do so with ease, though it isn't as if the competition from a pair of newcomers was stiff. Both UAR's Gretel & Hansel and Paramount's The Rhythm Section fell below expectations, and the latter is even struggling to remain in the weekend top ten and earned a record no film ever wants.

    With an estimated $17.7 million this weekend, Sony's Bad Boys for Life finished atop the weekend box office for the third straight week in a row. The film's domestic gross now tops $148 million, making it the highest grossing release in the Bad Boys franchise. Internationally, Bad Boys brought in an estimated $30.8 million, lifting the film's international cume to $142.7 million for a franchise best, $271 million global cume.

    Universal's 1917 once again takes the runner-up position as the Best Picture contender delivered an estimated $9.66 million this weekend, pushing the film's domestic cume just shy of $120 million. Internationally, the film brought in an estimated $20.9 million from 61 markets, including openings in Russia, Taiwan, Sweden, and Thailand. The international cume currently stands at $129.8 million.

    Universal also took third place with Dolittle bringing in an estimated $7.7 million as the struggling, $175 million production has now managed just over $55 million domestically as it kicks off its third week in release. Internationally the film has now grossed over $71 million after bringing in an estimated $17.7 million this weekend from 63 markets. The film's global cume now stands at $126.6 million with releases in France, the UK, Brazil, Russia and Japan yet to come along with a release date for China not yet set.

    United Artists Releasing's Gretel & Hansel debuted in fourth position, opening with an estimated $6 million, coming up shy of expectations. The performance doesn't come as much of a shock given it is the fourth horror/thriller to be released in the first five weeks of the year, not to mention it is the fourth to debut with poor reviews and, once again, audiences tended to agree with critics, giving the film a "C-" CinemaScore and a 20% audience rating at RottenTomatoes. The film played to an opening weekend crowd that was 53% female with 73% of the overall audience coming in aged less than 35 years old.

    A pair of films are virtually in a dead heat for fifth place with STXfilms's The Gentlemen edging out Jumanji: The Next Level by just $10,000 based on estimates. The Guy Ritchie-directed action comedy dipped -44% in its second weekend, bringing in an estimated $6 million for a ten-day domestic cume totaling $20.4 million. Internationally, the film added another 12 markets, bringing in an estimated $4 million for an overseas cume totaling $28 million and a global tally that now tops $48 million.

    Further down the list, and just making its way into the top ten is Paramount's The Rhythm Section. Signals heading into the weekend weren't positive, but this one fell short of even the most pessimistic of expectations, bringing in just $2.8 million for the weekend from 3,049 locations for a $918 per theater average, the worst opening ever for a film debuting in over 3,000 locations. The film received a "C+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences while the opening weekend crowd was 53% male with 75% of the overall audience coming in aged 25 years or older.

    In limited release, Magnolia and ShortsTV debuted the 2020 Oscar-Nominated Short Films with an estimated $1.1 million in 460 locations. In 15 years of releasing the Oscar Shorts this is Magnolia's widest opening ever due to the shortened window between nominations and this year's ceremony.

    Additional limited releases include Bleecker's The Assistant brought in an estimated $84,702 from four locations ($21,176 PTA); the independent release of Created Equal: Clarence Thomas In His Own Words debuted in 23 theaters with an estimated $74,718 ($3,248 PTA); Sony Classics released The Traitor in three theaters with an estimated $25,530 ($8,510 PTA); Greenwich's Incitement opened in two locations with an estimated $21,750; and Outsider debuted José in one theater with an estimated $10,200.

    Next weekend sees Margot Robbie back in her role as Harley Quinn in the DC Comics adaptation Birds of Prey, opening in over 4,100 locations.

    'Sonic The Hedgehog' hold on to #1



    Paramount's Sonic the Hedgehog managed to hold off 20th Century's The Call of the Wild for a second weekend at #1, topping $106 million after just ten days in release and already ranking as the fourth largest video game adaptation domestically of all-time. STX's release Brahms: The Boy II currently holds a narrow lead for a fourth place finish while truTV's release of Impractical Jokers: The Movie managed to land just outside the top ten despite playing in just 357 locations.

    Paramount's Sonic the Hedgehog dipped a little more than we anticipated, but still managed to hold on to the #1 spot at the weekend box office over its sophomore frame. The film fell -55% compared to its strong debut last weekend and delivered an estimated $26.3 million over the three-day, pushing the film's domestic cume over $106 million after just ten days in release. The film now sits just behind The Angry Birds Movie ($107.5m) as the fourth largest video game adaptation domestically of all-time.

    Internationally, Sonic added another $38.3 million, pushing the international cume to $96.5 million for a global tally topping $203 million. New openings were led by Russia with $6.3 million while the UK still leads the way overseas with a cumulative total of $19.1 million.

    Finishing in second place is Disney's release of 20th Century's The Call of the Wild. The adaptation of the classic Jack London adventure novel cost a reported $135 million and the film managed an estimated $24.8 million three-day debut. The performance, while ahead of pre-weekend expectations, still leaves a lot of room to run for the picture with a price-tag that high and an overtly American story that may not be able to generate a large following outside the country. Those that turned out stateside seemed to have enjoyed it as it earned an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day crowds and a 90% audience score on RottenTomatoes. Opening weekend audiences were split 50/50 among males and females with 62% of the opening weekend crowd coming in aged 25 or older.

    Internationally, the film launched in 40 markets with an estimated $15.4 million for a $40.2 million global launch. Leading the way was a $2.6 million opening in France followed by the UK ($1.9m), Mexico ($1.4m) and Russia ($1.2m). Next weekend sees openings in Japan, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Finland, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand, Argentina, Uruguay and Venezuela with an April 16 date set for South Korea.

    WB's Birds of Prey finished in third with an estimated $7 million as the film's domestic cume now tops $72 million as it enters its third week in release. The film also added another $10 million internationally this weekend from 78 markets, pushing its international cume over $101 million for a global tally that currently stands at $173.7 million.

    Narrowly edging out Bad Boys for Life for fourth is STXfilms and Lakeshore Entertainment's horror sequel Brahms: The Boy II with an estimated $5.9 million. The film received a "C-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences while receiving a 40% audience score at RottenTomatoes. The film's opening weekend crowd was 53% female with 56% of the overall crowd coming in under the age of 25. Internationally, the film launched in 23 markets with an estimated $2.22 million for a global launch just over $8 million.

    Rounding out the top five is Sony's Bad Boys for Life with an estimated $5.86 million, pushing its domestic cume to $191 million as it will soon become the first release of 2020 to top $200 million domestically. Internationally the film added another $8.1 million, including a $1.1 million debut in Italy, pushing the overseas cume to $200 million for a worldwide tally reaching $390 million.

    Just outside the top ten is the film extension of the truTV series "Impractical Jokers", the aptly titled Impractical Jokers: The Movie, which finished with an estimated $2.6 million from 357 locations ($7,308 PTA). The film will continue to expand into more cities and theaters next weekend.

    In limited release, Lionsgate's release of Pantelion Films’s Las Pildoras De Mi Novio took in an estimated $1.4 million on 350 screens this weekend earning $4,071 per screen. The film received an "A-" CinemaScore.

    Focus's domestic debut of Emma. brought in an estimated $230,000 from five locations ($11,626 PTA) while continuing to play internationally where it added four new markets and brought in an estimated $2.4 million for an overseas cume that now stands at $8.4 million. The UK still leads the way overseas with a cume that now totals an estimated $6 million. The pic will expand to nearly 100 locations domestically next week while also opening in Korea, Netherlands, Greece, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland.

    Additionally, Oscilloscope debuted the 2020 edition of CatVideoFest in 30 locations with an estimated $220,150 ($7,338 PTA) with an expectation to add another 80 locations next weekend. Amazon Studios also debuted Seberg starring Kristen Stewart in three locations in New York and Los Angeles with an estimated $60,487 ($20,162 PTA) and will see the film expand into over 300 locations nationwide next weekend.

    Re: Box Office - Updated Every Monday

    Onward #1, but fell short of projections.



    Disney and Pixar's Onward topped the weekend box office, but fell just a bit shy of expectations, a performance some may relate to the current COVID-19 concerns, though most everything else performed as expected if not better. Universal's The Invisible Man held on quite well, delivering a second place performance, while WB's release of The Way Back landed within expectations.

    With an estimated $40 million, Disney and Pixar's Onward fell on the extreme, lower end of expectations, which some saw creeping as high as $50 million. While critical opinion was high heading into the weekend and the film received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day crowds and 96% audience score on RottenTomatoes, it was unable to catch fire over Saturday and Sunday. That said, with additional schools soon to be on spring break over the coming weeks, there is still more than enough opportunity film the film to deliver a respectable overall performance should concerns over COVID-19 begin to subside. Overall, audiences were 52% female with kids and parents making up 58% of the opening weekend crowd.

    Internationally, Onward grossed an estimated $28 million from 47 territories, comprising a little over 60% of all overseas markets. Leading the way was the UK with an estimated $4.4 million followed by France ($3.3m), Mexico ($3.0m), Russia ($2.1m), Spain ($1.9m), Germany ($1.9m) and Brazil ($1.1m). The film still has several markets where it has yet to open with mid-April openings set for Korea, Italy and Japan while releases in Australia, Turkey, Hong Kong, New Zealand and Taiwan remain and a date yet to be set for China.

    Finishing in the runner-up position is Universal and Blumhouse's The Invisible Man, holding on much better than we had anticipated, dipping just -46% for a $15.1 million second weekend. The $7 million production now finds its domestic cume climbing over $52 million after just ten days in release. Internationally, the film added an additional $17.3 million this weekend for an overseas total that now tops $45 million and a global tally, just shy of $100 million at $98.3 million.

    Rolling into third is Warner Bros.'s The Way Back with an estimated $8.5 million. While on the lower end of expectations for the $20+ million production it is within the anticipated range. Opening day audiences gave the film a "B+" CinemaScore while the overall weekend crowd was 53% female and 87% of the audiences as aged 25 or older. Internationally, The Way Back debuted in 14 overseas markets this weekend to an estimated $640k on 448 screens. Australia led the way with $219k while the next key markets to open will be in April.

    Paramount's Sonic the Hedgehog isn't too far behind in fourth with an estimated $8 million as it begins its fourth week in release with a domestic cume that now tops $140 million. Internationally, the film added another $12 million for an overseas total reaching $154.8 million and a global haul that now stands over $295 million.

    Rounding out the top five is 20th Century's The Call of the Wild, finishing the weekend with an estimated $7 million for a domestic cume that now tops $57 million as it begins its third week in release. Internationally, it added another $4.8 million for an overseas cume that now tops $42 million and a global total just shy of $100 million at $99.6 million.

    Just outside the top five is Focus's Emma, which expanded nationwide this weekend into 1,565 theaters (+1,468) and finished with an estimated $5 million for a $6.9 million domestic cume. It's a solid performance for the picture, which also earned a "B" CinemaScore from Friday audiences.

    Internationally, Emma is now playing in 27 markets from which it brought in $1.5 million this weekend for an overseas total that now stands at $14 million. Among the weekend's ten new markets, Germany led the way with an estimated $372k debut with the UK still the top global market with over $9.1 million.

    Elsewhere, Sony's Bad Boys for Life became the first release of 2020 to top $200 million domestically as it added another $3 million this weekend for a domestic cume that now stands at $202 million. Globally, the film has now brought in $415 million with international contributing $213 million.

    In limited release, A24's First Cow opened in four locations with an estimated $96,059 ($24,015 PTA); Sony Classics released Burnt Orange Heresy on four screens with an estimated $18,296 ($4,574 PTA); Greenwich's The Booksellers opened in one theater with an estimated $17,000; Good Deed debuted Extra Ordinary in 32 locations with an estimated $83,954 ($2,623 PTA); Roadside's Hope Gap debuted on 18 screens with an estimated $32,655 ($1,814 PTA); and Kino Lorber opened Bacurau in two theaters with an estimated $15,210.

    Next weekend sees a trio of new releases, the widest of which will be Lionsgate's debut of I Still Believe from Andrew and Jon Erwin whose I Can Only Imagine was a breakout success in 2018, bringing in ove4 $83 million domestically. Additionally, Universal will finally release The Hunt after shelving the pic last year over some controversy and Sony will release Vin Diesel's Bloodshot.
