Internationally, the film earned an estimated $28 million from 47 territories. It will open mid-April 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.

The Invisible Man dipped from last weekend’s first place coming in second with an estimated $15.2 million. The movie has earned $52.7 million after ten days and a budget of just $7 million. Internationally, the film added $17.3 million for an overseas total of $45.6 million.

When it comes to comic films…

Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn came in at #8 with an estimated $2.2 million to bring its domestic total to $82.6 million.

My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising was #10 after last week’s debut at #4. The film added $1.5 million to its domestic total to bring that to $12.7 million.

Sonic the Hedgehog Continues to Take the Cross the Finish Line in First

Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic the Hedgehog managed to outpace The Call of the Wild, which beat expectations, to take first place. The film held on to first for the second weekend in a row.

After ten days of release, Sonic the Hedgehog has earned $106.6 million after bringing in an estimated $26.3 million over the weekend. Internationally the film added $38.3 million to bring its foreign total to $96.5 million and a worldwide total to $203.1 million.

In second place was The Call of the Wild which earned $24.8 million. That beat expectation but the film’s budget is a reported $135 million making this an uphill fight for the film. The audience was a 50/50 split between men and women with 62% of the crowd aged 25 or older. Internationally, the film opened in 40 markets earning $15.4 million for a $40.2 million global opening.

Birds of Prey dropped to third with an estimated $7 million to bring the domestic total to $72.5 million after its third week. It also added $10 million internationally to bring that total to $101.2 million and $173.7 million.

Brahms: The Boys II edged out the competition to come in fourth with an estimated $5.9 million. With a “C-” CinemaScore and a 40% audience score on RottenTomatoes, the film should drop quickly. The crowd was 53% female and 56% of the crowd was under the age of 25. It also launched in 23 markets with an estimated $2.22 million.

Round out the top five was Bad Boys for Life with an estimated $5.86 million. The domestic total now stands at $191.2 million. The film also earned $8.1 million internationally to bring that total to $200 million and $391.2 million worldwide.

We’ll be back in an hour for a deeper dive into this year and last year’s comic film adaptations.

Sonic the Hedgehog Runs Into First with a Record

Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic the Hedgehog raced into first place at the box office. Over the four days, the film earned an estimated $68 million. It’s the fourth largest Presidents’ Day opening ever. It may go even higher once the final numbers come in. For the three days, the film earned $57 million making it the largest three-day opening ever for a video game adaptation.

The film is doing well with reviews which point to a lot of gold rings in its future. The opening audience gave the film an “A” CinemaScore and the film has a 95% audience rating on RottenTomatoes. The film was 56% male with 70% aged under 25 years old.

The film launched in 40 markets earning an estimated $43 million delivering a weekend total over $100 million.

Birds of Prey dropped to second place with about a 48% drop. The film brought in an estimated $17.1 million over the three days and $19.6 million for the four days. That brings the domestic total to $61.7 million. Internationally, the film added $23 million from 78 markets, about a 46% drop. The international total now stands at $83.6 million for a worldwide total of $145.3 million. The film should be well profitable by the time its run is over but the film will definitely send Warner Bros. back to the drawing board.

Third place was a close one with Fantasy Island currently holding the spot with $12.4 million over the three days and $14 million over the four days. The film received a “C-” CinemaScore, a 9% critic rating on RottenTomatoes and a 45% audience score. The crowd was 52% female with 46% aged 25 or older. The film also launched in 35 markets with $7.6 million.

The Photograph was right behind that film with an estimated $12.3 million over the three days and $13.4 million over four days. The audience was 56% female and 64% were aged 25 and older.

Rounding out the top five was Bad Boys for Life which saw just a 6% dip and earning an estimated $11.3 million over three days and $12.8 million for the four days. It also added $11.1 million from overseas. It has now earned $182.8 million domestically and $187 million internationally and $369.8 million worldwide.
