Zootopia Continues to Stay On Top of the Box Office
For the third week in a row, Zootopia was at the top of the box office earning an estimated $38 million to bring its domestic total to $201.8 million. The film also brought in roughly $64.8 million internationally to put its foreign box office total at $389.9 million. So far the film has earned $591.7 million in its three weeks.
In second place was The Divergent Series: Allegiant which earned $29.1 million, down 44% from the opening of the previous film in the series. With another film to go, this is not a good sign for the franchise’s end. We’ll see how well it does in the long run, but Lionsgate has to be slightly disappointed in the opening.
Coming in third was Miracles from Heaven which earned $15 million. With a budget of $13 million, the folks behind the film must be happy. It has earned a total of $18.5 million after five days. It also continues the success of films focused on a religious audience.
In its second week 10 Cloverfield Lane dropped to fourth earning $12.5 million in its second week. This is as expected as I’d think many would have flocked to see the film in the first week so as to not be spoiled.
Rounding out the top five is Deadpool which added $8 million to its domestic total putting it at $340.9 million. The film has also earned $389.7 million in foreign markets to bring its worldwide total to $730.65 million. The film still has about $17 million to be the top “X” film worldwide when it comes to unadjusted totals.
This coming weekend will see the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, so expect that film to easily top the box office.
