Weekend Box Office Top Ten - 1/27/19
Weekend Box Office Top Ten:
GLASS is #1 again with $19M (Million), a domestic total of $73.5M, and a global total of $162.6M. Though far below what initial tracking suggested, this is another big win for Universal and Blumhouse, given the film's budget of just $20M plus marketing costs, making this highly profitable for all involved.
THE UPSIDE held at #2 with $12.2M, a domestic total of $63.1M, and a very early $69.2M worldwide. Produced for $37.5M, this film is marching towards profitability for STX, and continues Kevin Hart's winning streak at the box office.
AQUAMAN is #3 with $7.3M, a domestic total of $316.5M, and $1.090 Billion global haul, becoming the top DC Comics based film ever, after surpassing THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, which previously held that record. A sequel has already been announced as being in development from WB.
THE KID WHO WOULD BE KING opened at #4 with $7.2M domestic, and $10M worldwide, as it is set to be a significant financial loss for Fox given a production budget of $60M plus marketing.
SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE is #5 with $6.1M, riding its Oscar buzz to a total of $169M domestic, and $338M globally. This week it will become the top Sony Animation film ever domestically, and with a budget of $90M plus marketing, is already nicely profitable, with a SPIDER-GWEN spinoff and a sequel already announced.
GREEN BOOK is #6 with $5.4M after being expanded back into theaters, bringing the domestic total to $49M, $59M worldwide. Produced for $23M, this film from Universal now looks to surprise and end up profitable after all, in addition to its many awards nominations and wins.
A DOG'S WAY HOME is #7 with $5.2M, a domestic total of $30.8M, and $41.3M worldwide. Produced for $18M plus marketing, this Sony film should end up solidly profitable.
SERENITY opened at #8 with a disastrous $4.8M from Aviron, in addition to being panned by critics and audiences alike. Expect this one to disappear quickly, and be a sharp financial loss for all involved.
ESCAPE ROOM is #9 with $4.2M, a domestic total of $47.9M, and $76.4M worldwide. Produced for $9M plus marketing, this film has been very profitable for Sony, as well as the launch of a potential new franchise for the studio.
DRAGON BALL SUPER: BROLY fell to #10 with $3.6M, a domestic total of $28.9M, and $98.8M worldwide, soon to pass the $100M threshold this upcoming week, a testament to the brand's enduring popularity.
Next week will be another quiet one, as MISS BALA from Sony is the only new wide-release.
