Weekend Box Office Top Ten - 3/1/20

Weekend Box Office Top Ten:

THE INVISIBLE MAN opened at #1 with a big $29M (Million) domestic and a global debut of $49.2M for Blumhouse and Universal. Produced for only $7M plus marketing, this film is already profitable for the studio, with much more to be earned. 

SONIC THE HEDGEHOG is #2 with $16M, a domestic total now of $128.2M, and a global haul of $265.4M, as the film will no doubt pass the $300M mark and could soar higher depending on a China release. Produced for $85M plus marketing, this is now profitable for Paramount, with a sequel already announced. 

THE CALL OF THE WILD is #3 with $13.2M, a domestic total of $45.8M, and $79.2M worldwide. With a budget of $135M plus marketing, this will be a financial loss for 20th Century Studios and Disney.

MY HERO ACADEMIA: HEROES RISING opened at #4 with $5.1M and a total debut of $8.4M domestic. Worldwide stands at $23.5M for the popular anime.

BAD BOYS FOR LIFE is #5 with $4.3M, a big domestic total of $197.3M (soon to pass the $200M threshold) and a global total of $405.3M for Sony. This $90M sequel has been a huge success for the studio, with another installment on the way.

BIRDS OF PREY fell to #6 with $4.1M, a domestic total of only $78.7M, and $188M worldwide. This will be the lowest-grossing of all DC films by far, the first to not even crack the $100M mark domestic, and at a budget of $85M plus marketing, will be a financial loss for WB.

IMPRACTICAL JOKERS opened at #7 with $3.5M and a total debut of $6.6M for truTV, an okay result for this low-budget feature version of the television series.

1917 is #8 with $2.6M, a domestic total now of $155.8M and an impressive worldwide total of $362M for Universal. Produced for $90M plus marketing, this awards smash will end its run as a nicely profitable hit for the studio.

BRAHMS: THE BOY 2 collapsed at #9 with $2.6M, a domestic total of only $9.7M, and just $16M worldwide. At a budget of $10M plus marketing, this will be a financial loss for STX.

FANTASY ISLAND is #10 with $2.3M, a domestic total of $24M, and a worldwide total of $40M for Blumhouse and Sony. Produced for $7M plus marketing, this will essentially be a break-even release, though it could go on to post a small profit, in a disappointing result for what was hoped to be a new franchise based off the television classic. 

Next weekend sees the launch of Disney and Pixar's original fantasy ONWARD, and WB's adult-skewing Ben Affleck drama THE WAY BACK, each hoping to score with their respective audiences over a crowded, competitive March at the box office.
