Welcome back to the weekly box office report! Each and every Sunday, expect a look at what made the most money in theaters, as well as just how all of the new releases fared. This week, Dumbo crashes the party, while Jordan Peele has his second weekend with Us, which hoped to continue setting some records. Without too much else entering the marketplace, it was a two horse race. How did the pair do? Let us take a look right now at just that…
Flying to the top spot this weekend, opening somewhat below expectations, Disney’s latest remake of a cartoon classic in Dumbo. Taking in just $45 million has to be considered a slight disappointment, though Tim Burton’s effort did do enough to capture first place today. How it fares in the weeks to come will determine whether Dumbo is a success or a failure for Disney.
Coming in at number two after wining the crown last week was previous champ Us. $33.6 million shot it past the $100 million mark, domestically, as Peele continues to have a massive hit. This will pass Get Out with easy, financially, and could be one of the bigger horror hits to come down the pike in general.
The three spot went to Captain Marvel, which made another $20.5 million. Carol Danvers’ introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe is nearing the $1 Billion mark globally, which is tremendous. The MCU is sitting very pretty today, right?
Making a big jump into the top ten was Hotel Mumbai. Opening wide, it took in $3.1 million, good for an eighth place finish.
Hitting at number ten was The Beach Bum, which couldn’t quite find its niche. Only $1.8 million for the weekend was not what NEON was hoping for, that’s for sure…
Among indie/smaller debuts, Diane opened on just three screens and made about 27K, while Slut in a Good Way took in 22K from seven screens, and The Brink was able to score 18K from four screens.
