Hidden Figures Wins the Weekend Box Office
Hidden Figures won the weekend box office with an estimated $20.45 million in its fourth week of release. The film has earned $54.8 million domestically so far getting a nice boost from award season buzz.
In second place was another film getting award buzz (and wins) with La La Land which earned an estimated $14.5 million after six weeks. The film has earned $74.1 million domestically and $54.8 million at the foreign box office for a worldwide total of $128.9 million.
In third place was Sing which sat in the same position last week. That film earned $13.8 million to bring its domestic total to $233 million. Its worldwide total stands at $397.3 million.
In fourth was Rogue One: A Star Wars Story which dropped from last weekend’s second place. The film added $13.8 million to its total and its domestic total is now $498.9 million. Worldwide the film has earned $979.95 million. It’ll likely cross the billion dollar mark in the next week or two. The film is now the number one domestic film of 2016.
In fifth was the new film The Bye Bye Man which debuted with $13.4 million. With a budget of just $7.4 million the folks behind that film should be quite happy with that debut and the film will make a nice profit by the time it wraps up.
Monster Trucks was another debut opening at #7 and earning $10.5 million. The reportedly $125 million film is an utter disaster already causing issues for Paramount and Viacom.
Opening just behind that film is Sleepless at #8 with an estimated $8.5 million.
Doctor Strange is still earning some dollars coming in at #27 with an estimated $197,000. The film has earned $231.2 million domestically and has earned $427.9 million at foreign box offices. The film is currently at $659.2 million worldwide.
