The Fate of the Furious Remains in First with New Films Going 2, 3, 4. Guardians Already Tops $101 million.

The Fate of the Furious raced into first for the third week in a row adding an estimated $19.4 million to its total. The film after three weeks has earned $192.7 million and $1.06 billion worldwide. The film is currently in second place for the year behind Beauty and the Beast which has earned $1.143 billion so far. It’ll be interesting to see if it can catch up and pass that film to take the top spot. Furious 7 crossed the billion mark in 17 days and this film was pretty close to that. That film would go on to earn $1.5 billion by the time it was done.

The next three films were all debuts.

How to be a Latin Lover earned an estimated $12 million to come in second. That was earned in just 1,118 theaters giving an average of $10,750 per theater. The film received an “A” CinemaScore and had an audience that was 55% female, 75% 25 years or older, and 89% were Hispanic. It’s another example of a film having a specific audience and that audience delivering solid earnings.

In third was what can only be considered a shocker, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion which earned an estimated $10.1 million. That film only played in 425 theaters which means an average of $23,855 per theater. That’s the largest opening for an Indian film domestically.

The Circle came in third with an estimated $9.3 million. That has to be disappointing considering the star power of Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, John Boyega, and Karen Gillan. The film received a “D+” CinemaScore so don’t expect it to do much better going forward. The audience was 62% female and 44% between the ages of 18 and 34 which may bode well for the drawing power of Watson and Boyega who were prominent in the advertising. The film cost $18 million and acquired for $8 million so it’ll likely do fine in the end.

Rounding out the top five was The Boss Baby which added $9.1 million to its domestic total bringing that to $148.5 million. The film is just shy of $400 million, it has earned $396.6 million worldwide so far.

When it comes to “comic adaptations”….

Smurfs: The Lost Village added $3.3 million to its domestic total bringing the film to $37.7 million domestically and $117.8 million in foreign box offices for a total of $155.5 million. That’s an increase of about $22 million since last week.

Logan brought in $760,000 domestically for its domestic total to reach $224.5 million.The film has earned $607.7 million worldwide so far. That’s about a $1 million increase from last week.

Ghost in the Shell added $430,000 to its domestic total bringing that to $39.9 million. The film has earned $166.1 million worldwide. That’s a $4 million increase from the previous week.

The LEGO Batman Movie still is earning bringing in about $1 million since last week. And finally, Wilson looks like its earned no money since last week.

Opening domestically this week is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 which is sure to be the top film at the box office. The film has opened in 58% of the international market this past weekend where it earned an estimated $101.2 million. The film was in first place in almost all of its markets.

We’ll be back in an hour for a deeper dive into the numbers for this comic adaptations.

Star Wars Crosses $700 Million

star-wars-force-awakens-official-posterStar Wars: The Force Awakens was the top of the box office for the third week in a row adding an estimated $88.3 million to its total. The film ends the year crossing the $700 million mark with $740.27 million to be the top grossing film domestically.

The film’s success made it the second largest January weekend of all time falling about $4.5 million short of the record back in 2009 when Avatar was in theaters. The Force Awakens will likely pass that film’s all time domestic record of $760.5 million this coming week. The film is also the fastest film to cross $700 million domestically, doing in 16 days what it took Avatar 72 to do. The Force Awakens currently is the sixth highest grossing film of all time, and it will likely move in to fourth in a day or two and in to third be the end of the week the latest.

For the rest of the weekend box office, Daddy’s Home was in second place earning $29 million, with The Hateful Eight coming in third as it increased its theater count. That film earned an estimated $16.2 million. Sisters came in fourth adding $12.58 million to its total after three weeks. Rounding out the top five, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip earned an estimated $11.8 million.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Crosses $1 Billion, Stays in First

star-wars-force-awakens-official-posterThe records keep falling to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The film broke even more records this past weekend. The film cross the $1 billion mark worldwide in record time. The film earned an estimated $153.5 million this past weekend, the highest second weekend of all time. It beat the previous record holder, Jurassic World, by $46.9 million. The film has earned $544 million domestically and $546 million internationally for a total of $1.09 billion.

In just two weekends, the film is now the second highest grossing domestic release in 2015 and the fifth worldwide. Avatar holds the domestic record of $760.5 million, and it’s not a question “if” Star Wars will top that, but more likely “when” will it top that. The film is currently fifteenth in the all-time non-adjusted grosses. It would have to over double its earnings, and has yet to open in some key markets like China.

A whole bunch of other films opened up this weekend as well.

Daddy’s Home opened in second place earning an estimated $38.8 million, better than expectations. Joy opened in third with $17.5 million. Concussion, which takes on the NFL and football, opened in sixth with $11 million. The Point Break remake came in eighth earning an estimated $10.2 million.

There were other films that opened this weekend!

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip came in second place and earned an estimated $14.4 million. That’s far less than the previous film’s debut of $23.2 million and continues a decline for the film series.

Two Bollywood films opened too. Diwale came in ninth earning $1.875 million and Bajirao Mastani came in tenth earning $1.66 million.

Mockingjay Part 2 Remains Number 1, In the Heart of the Sea S(t)inks

mockingjaypostersmallFour weeks in the box office, and for weeks number one at the box office. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 remained in first place adding an estimated $11.3 million to its domestic total. The film has earned $244.49 million domestically and $564.59 million globally in its run so far. It will likely be bumped from first place this coming week as Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuts in theaters.

New film In the Heart of the Sea hit a stormy patch as the film earned an estimated $11 million, a disappointment. The film is rumored to have a budget around $100 million and needed to open around $30 million to be considered healthy.

The Big Short also debuted earning an estimated $720,000. The film opened in only 8 theaters which gives it a very health $90,000 per theater average.

For the rest of the top five for the weekend. The Good Dinosaur was in third with $10.5 million earning, Creed was fourth adding $10.12 million, and Krampus was fifth with $8.01 million.

There’s much debate as to the reason for the “lowish” opening.
