Rogue One is First Again, But Hidden Figures is a Close Second

rogueone_onesheeta_1000_309ed8f6Rogue One: A Star Wars Story repeated in first place for the fourth weekend in a row earning an estimated $21.97 million for the weekend. The film has earned $477.3 million domestically and now stands at $914.4 million worldwide. That has had the film move into fifth place for worldwide earnings for a film released in 2016.

In a close second was Hidden Figures which received its national release. The film earned $21.8 million for the weekend bringing its total to an estimated $24.8 million after three weeks. The film had a budget of $25 million so should do quite well especially after lots of buzz and positive word of mouth. The film’s success was driven by a diverse audience that was 64% female, 56% of the audience under the age of 35, and 43% of the audience Caucasian, 37% African-American, and 13% Hispanic.

In third place was Sing which added an estimated $19.6 million to bring its domestic total to $213.4 million and worldwide total to $356.9 million. The film is doing quite well, especially with a budget of just $75 million.

In fourth was Underworld: Blood Wars which earned an estimated $13.1 million. The film debuted with the lowest opening for an Underworld film and received a “B+” CinemaScore. It’s unknown what the international earnings are so far. With a budget of $35 million, the film will likely make a slight profit by the time things are done.

In fifth was La La Land which was boosted due to awards season. The film earned an estimated $10 million for a domestic gross of $51.7 million. With a budget of just $30 million, the film will do quite well in the long run and make a nice profit.

In comic book films, Doctor Strange was #19 earning $330,000 as the film begins to wrap up its domestic run. The film has earned $230.9 million domestically and $658.9 million worldwide. The film still needs to debut in Japan so it’s unknown how it’ll look when it’s completely over.

We’ll be back in an hour with an updated look at comic book movie adaptations released in 2016.

Rogue One Wins the Weekend Again, Sing Holds for Second

Star Wars Rogue OneAs expected, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was number one at the box office again this holiday weekend bringing in an estimated $49.5 million. The film has earned $424.9 million domestically after three weeks.

In second place, again as expected, was Sing which earned an additional $42.8 million domestically in its second week. That’s an improvement on the previous weekend where it earned $35.3 million. Domestically the film has earned $166.4 million after two weeks and with a budget of $75 million the film is doing quite well.

Passengers also improved upon last weekend’s  $14.9 million. The film remained in third adding $16.2 million to its domestic total. The film sits at $61.5 million after two weeks and with a budget of $110 million it’ll have to fight to become profitable.

Moana improves moving to fourth from sixth and earning an estimated $10.97 million after six weeks. The film has earned $210 million domestically.

Rounding out the top five is Why Him? which added $10.6 to its domestic total. With $34.6 million earned and a $38 million budget, the film should make a small profit.

Assassin’s Creed dropped to eighth in its second week earning an estimated $8.6 million. With $39.6 million in so far the film needs a miracle.

For comics Doctor Strange was #18 earning $665,000 domestically. The film has earned $230.1 million domestically so far after nine weeks and will soon be wrapping up its domestic run.

We’ll update this as more info comes in and come back in an hour as we look at where the comic films ended up for the year.

Rogue One Tops the Box Office While Assassin’s Creed is Game Over

Star Wars Rogue OneEven with some big name competition Rogue One: A Star Wars Story topped the box office with an estimated $64.4 million over the weekend. That’s a drop of 58.5% from the previous weekend and with another estimated $31.7 million on Monday the film sits at $318 million domestically. With $237.4 million in foreign box offices the film has earned $555.5 million so far.

Rogue One sits at fourth in domestic earnings for Star Wars films, eighth when that’s adjusted for inflation, and sixth for worldwide earnings.

The film was followed by a bunch of new film openings. Sing was in second place earning $35.3 million over the three-day weekend and $55.9 million domestically since its opening earlier in the week. With a budget of just $75 million the film should do quite well especially with families over the holiday season especially with an “A” CinemaScore and 72% rating on RottenTomatoes.

In third was Passengers which opened with $14.9 million over the three days and $22.2 since it opened on Wednesday. At a $110 million budget and bad reviews, the film is on shaky ground. It’ll probably need the power of its stars to drive earnings in foreign box offices to come out at the other end doing well.

Why Him? opened in fourth at an estimated $11.1 million over the three days. With a budget of just $38 million the “R” rated film should do fine and make back it’s money.

Finally, in what can only be seen as a disappointment, Assassin’s Creed earned an estimated $10.3 million of the three days and $17.8 million since its open on Wednesday. The film has earned another $14.2 million in foreign box offices and with a budget of $125 million it can only be seen as a flop continuing the video game movie curse. With a 19% on RottenTomatoes and B+ CinemaScore, the film is doomed for game over.

In comic films, Doctor Strange added an estimated $634,000 to its total to drop to 16th from the previous week’s 9th. The film is at $228.3 million domestically and $656.1 million worldwide.

We’ll have more analysis of comic film adaptations in an hour!
