Weekend Box Office Report: January 18-20, 2019

Glass cracks the top! M. Night Shyamalan's super-powered sequel was the main attraction this weekend as GLASS opened in first place with an estimated $40.5 million! The third chapter of his grounded superhuman saga improved on the $40 million opening of SPLIT in 2017 and the $30.3 million start of UNBREAKABLE back in 2000, and is expected to end up with nearly $50 million over the four-day Martin Luther King holiday weekend. The new PG-13 thriller with the returning Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis and James McAvoy (all 24 of him) is Shyamalan's third-biggest domestic opening behind SIGNS ($60.1 million…

The Upside takes the top! The king of Atlantis was dethroned by drama at the box office this weekend as THE UPSIDE opened in first place with an estimated $19.5 million! Featuring Bryan Cranston as a wealthy quadraplegic being cared for by Kevin Hart's ex-convict, the PG-13 movie had a solid performance for a January dramatic release (almost doubling expected figures), edging past the $19.3 million first wide weekend of last year's all-star Oscar-buzzed THE POST. However, the more serious turn from co-star Kevin Hart unsurprisingly wasn't a match for the openings of his comedic pairings with Ice Cube (RIDE…

Weekend Box Office Report: January 4-6, 2019

Aquaman is still king! Kicking off a brand new year, the oceanic DC Comics superhero AQUAMAN held onto his box office throne for a third weekend with an estimated $30.7 million! The former punchline has now more than proven his worth, netting a domestic total of $259.7 million after three weekends to become the seventh-biggest release of 2018. Capping off a record-breaking box office year that soared to $11.8 billion domestic and $41 billion worldwide, director James Wan's eye-popping underwater undertaking has also collected an extraordinary $940 million worldwide (coincidentally the same global total as aquatic adventure FINDING NEMO). With…

Aquaman stays afloat in first! On the final weekend of 2018, DC Comics' ocean-based champion retained control of the box office as AQUAMAN reeled in an estimated $51.5 million! The superhero's solo sea adventure from director James Wan took a dip of only 23% from its opening last weekend, wading to a domestic total of $188.7 million after ten days (plus its two sneak preview screenings). With a current worldwide total of $748.8 million, Jason Momoa's sinewy swimmer has already powered past the global finishes for fellow DC "Extended Universe" releases JUSTICE LEAGUE ($657 million), MAN OF STEEL ($668 million)…

Aquaman surfaces in first! The oceanic superhero of DC Comics splashed into theaters this weekend as AQUAMAN opened on top at the box office with an estimated $67.4 million! Including what was netted during the movie's sneak previews over the past week, the underwater adventure of Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) has a domestic total of $72.1 million (with nearly $10 million of that coming from IMAX screens). AQUAMAN's deep-diving solo debut had the lowest start of DC's recent "Extended Universe" releases, floundering behind the $93.8 million opening of last year's all-star JUSTICE LEAGUE. For December openings, it had the ninth-biggest…

Spidey webs a weekend win! A squad of Spider-people (and one Spider-pig) came swinging into theaters this weekend and grabbed first place as SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE opened with an estimated $35.4 million! The multi-dimensional cluster of wall-crawlers had the biggest December opening for an animated movie, but couldn't quite compare to the live-action versions of Marvel's famous superhero. Of the web-head's six other headlining appearances, the 2012 reboot THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN with Andrew Garfield had the lowest opening with a $62 million start (Sam Raimi's SPIDER-MAN 3 is the big winner with $151 million). The PG-rated feature, written by…

Another win for Ralph! For a third weekend, Disney's WRECK-IT RALPH sequel stayed on top as RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET placed first at the box office with an estimated $16.1 million! The second animated adventure of the endearing goon (John C. Reilly) and his princess pal (Sarah Silverman) has gathered a domestic total of $140.8 million and a worldwide total of $258.1 million, on a reported $175 million cost. There was little change in the remaining chart positions on a relatively slow weekend as crowds otherwise engaged in holiday festivities, went Christmas shopping, dealt with winter weather or simply waited…

Ralph keeps wrecking in first! Disney's WRECK-IT RALPH follow-up kept the top spot in its meaty grip as RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET won the weekend with an estimated $25.7 million! The PG-rated animated sequel dipped by 54% from its Thanksgiving weekend start, and has punched up a 12-day domestic total of $119.2 million (the original WRECK-IT RALPH ended with a domestic total of $189 million). The second adventure of John C. Reilly's knuckled gamebuster and his princess buddy Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) has also grabbed a worldwide total of $206 million so far (on a reported cost of $175…

Ralph breaks the bank! Disney's hammer-fisted Wreck-It Ralph returned to theaters this weekend with smashing success as RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET opened in first place at the box office with an estimated $55.6 million! Compared to previous Thanksgiving weekend releases from Disney/Pixar, RALPH's three-day figure is ahead of last year's COCO ($50.8 million) and the $48.7 million debut of TANGLED in 2011, and fairly close to TOY STORY 2 ($57.3 million in 1999) and MOANA ($56.6 million in 2016). The record-setting $67.3 million first weekend of FROZEN in 2013 remains untouched. The $175 million animated sequel starring John C. Reilly's…

Grindelwald beats Grinch! Magizoologist Newt Scamander returned to theaters this weekend and put FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD in first place with an estimated opening of $62.2 million! The new spinoff sequel not only came up short of the $74.4 million start of FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM (on this same weekend in 2016), but also had the lowest opening of any movie in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter / "Wizarding World" series. The follow-up with wand-waving Eddie Redmayne and Jude Law against villain Johnny Depp conjured an additional $191 million from international audiences for a $253.2 million…

The Grinch steals first place! Dr. Seuss' cranky holiday hater crept into theaters this weekend and swiped the top spot at the box office as THE GRINCH opened with an estimated $66 million! The new computer-animated version of the nefarious green grump and his loyal pooch had a stronger start than the $55 million opening of Ron Howard's live-action adaptation HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS back in 2000 (that Jim Carrey showcase ended with $260 million domestic). Beginning its theatrical theft of Christmas over a month and a half before the actual holiday, the PG-rated update from Illumination Entertainment (DESPICABLE…

Bohemian Rhapsody rocks the box office! The story of beloved band Queen hit the screen this weekend and put BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY in first place with an estimated opening of $50 million! The glimpse into the lives of the anthem rockers had the second-best opening ever for a music biopic, behind the $60.2 million start of N.W.A. movie STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON in August of 2015. Propelled by a praised performance from star Rami Malek as charismatic singer Freddie Mercury, the PG-13 drama also had fists pumping in the international arena with an extra $91.7 million overseas for a worldwide total of $141.7…
