Weekend Box Office Top Ten - 3/3/19

Weekend Box Office Top Ten:

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON: THE HIDDEN WORLD held onto the #1 spot with $30M (Million), a domestic total of $97.6M, and a global take of $375M and climbing. Produced for $129M, the film has essentially reached profitability for Universal already, with more to be earned on this trilogy-ending installment of the popular franchise.

TYLER PERRY'S A MADEA FAMILY FUNERAL opened at #2 with a strong $27M debut, ahead of tracking, in a big win for Lionsgate and a high note for Perry to retire his highly successful Madea character on.

ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL slid to #3 with $7M, a domestic total of $72.2M, and $350.4M after bringing in another $40M overseas. All told this film is heading towards break-even territory for Fox theatrically, and should end up profitable once home release revenues are factored in. Whether it spawns a new franchise or not remains to be seen.

THE LEGO MOVIE 2: THE SECOND PART is #4 with $6.6M, a domestic total of $91.6M, and just $152.7M globally. Produced for $100M plus marketing, this will be a financial loss for WB, and will end the theatrical installments of the Lego brand for the immediate future.

GREEN BOOK is #5 with $4.7M, a domestic total now of $75.9M, and an impressive $188M globally. Produced for $23M plus marketing, this has become highly profitable for Universal in addition to its many awards wins.

FIGHTING WITH MY FAMILY is #6 with $4.6M, and just a $14.9M total, as this will be a moderate financial loss for MGM.

ISN'T IT ROMANTIC is #7 with $4.6M, and a total of $40M for WB. The jury is still out on profitability depending on how it performs overseas.

GRETA opened at #8 with a disastrous $4.5M for Focus Features.

WHAT MEN WANT fell to #9 with $2.7M, a domestic total of $49.6M, and an early $55M worldwide. Produced for $20M plus marketing, this will be solidly profitable for Paramount.

HAPPY DEATH DAY 2U is #10 with $2.5M, a domestic total of $25.2M, and $54M worldwide. While far below the original, this film cost only $9M plus marketing and will post an okay profit for Blumhouse and Universal.

Next weekend sees the launch of Disney's CAPTAIN MARVEL, tracking for a big opening across the globe, including both the U.S. and China, where the Marvel brand is intensely popular.
