'Black Panther' Remains Box Office King, Topping $1 Billion Worldwide


On top of eclipsing $1 billion worldwide, Disney and Marvel's Black Panther has now achieved what no other film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has accomplished as it remained #1 at the weekend box office for its fourth straight weekend in a row since release. The superhero repeat means Disney's A Wrinkle in Time opened in second place followed by Aviron's The Strangers: Prey at Night while both Amazon Studios's Gringo and Entertainment Studios's The Hurricane Heist struggled mightily.
With an estimated $41.1 million, Black Panther topped the weekend box office for the fourth straight week in a row following it release. The last time a film managed that was Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The film's domestic cume now stands at a massive $562 million making it the second highest grossing superhero release of all-time and the seventh largest overall domestic release of all-time. In addition to Black Panther's four weekend streak at #1, the film's performance this weekend is the third largest fourth weekend of all-time just behind Force Awakens ($42.3m).
Internationally, Black Panther debuted in its final major market this weekend, China, where it opened with an estimated $66.5 million. Overall, the film's international weekend added an estimated $100 million to its bottom line, pushing the overseas total to $516.6 million for a global tally that now totals $1.078 billion. Black Panther is the fifth film in the MCU to reach this mark and is just shy of cracking the top 20 all-time.
Disney's A Wrinkle in Time landed in second with an estimated $33.3 million over its opening weekend. The result is just below the $35 million the studio was expecting and well below Mojo's aggressive forecast. Reasoning for the film's lackluster debut will most likely focus on Black Panther's continued dominance within the marketplace as well as the mixed reviews the film received heading into the weekend. Time will tell how well Wrinkle will be able to hold on over the coming weekends as the "B" CinemaScore suggests it could go either way. As of now the pre-weekend comparisons to Tomorrowland, which also opened with $33 million in 2015, appear to be holding up. That film went on to gross $93.4 million domestically.
Internationally, A Wrinkle in Time debuted with $6.3 million in approximately 14% of the international marketplace. Leading the way was Russia with $4.1 million followed by Spain with $1 million. The film will debut in France this coming Wednesday followed by a release in the UK on March 23 with openings in Italy, Australia, Brazil and Mexico at the end of the month.
Aviron's The Strangers: Prey at Night debuted in third place with an estimated $10.2 million, on par with expectations. Opening weekend demographics saw the film play to an audience that was 51% female and opening weekend auds scored the film with a "C" CinemaScore.
Fox's Red Sparrow landed in fourth position, dropping a top ten worst 51.6% with an estimated $8.15 million. The film's domestic cume now stands at $31.1 million after ten days in release. The film also added $15.7 million internationally this weekend raising its worldwide cume to $82.9 million. Rounding out the top five is WB's release of New Line's Game Night, dropping just 24% for an estimated $7.9 million three-day. The R-rated comedy's domestic cume is now up to $45 million as it enters its third week in release. Internationally the film added another $5.4 million this weekend bringing its overseas cume to $24.7 million for a global cume just shy of $70 million.
Outside the top five we find The Hurricane Heist, which opened this weekend in 2,402 theaters with a mere $3.1 million. The film played to an audience that was 55% male and of the overall audience 73% were over the age of 25. The film received a "B-" CinemaScore.
The Hurricane Heist wasn't the only new wide release to struggle as STX's release of Amazon Studios's Gringo missed out on a place in the top ten with an estimated $2.6 million from 2,404 locations. The two films delivered per theater averages among the worst all-time for films opening in more than 2,000 theaters with Gringo placing 27th, averaging just $1,094 per theater.
Gringo also debuted in eight international territories this weekend with an estimated $850k.
Elsewhere, Sony's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle added another $2.75 million to its bottom line for a domestic cume that now totals $397.2 million. The film continues to inch closer and closer to the $400 million mark and is now just $6.5 million away from becoming Sony's highest grossing domestic release of all-time.

Box Office RESULTS: Late Edition


It was yet another monster weekend for Disney and Marvel's Black Panther as the superhero feature became the third fastest film to ever reach $500 million domestic. Meanwhile, the weekend's new wide releases came up just a bit short of Mojo's pre-weekend forecast with Fox's Red Sparrow taking runner-up position behind Black Panther and MGM's Death Wish landing in third. It's also Oscar Sunday, which means we'll end this recap with a brief look at this some of year's nominees and how they stack up at the box office.
With an estimated $65.7 million, Disney and Marvel Studios's Black Panther topped the weekend box office for the third straight weekend, becoming only the third film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to accomplish that feat over its first three weeks in release, the others being Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Avengers. As noted above, the film also topped $500 million domestic, becoming the third fastest film to do so, bringing in $501.1 million in just 17 days, tied with Jurassic World and one day behind Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Black Panther's performance so far has it ranked as the tenth highest grossing domestic release of all-time, third highest grossing comic book adaptation and superhero film and it has now found a spot within the all-time top 50 worldwide. This weekend's performance was also the third largest third weekend of all-time and should the past two weekends be any indication, it could leapfrog Avatar for second largest if actuals come in ~$2.8 million higher than estimates.
Speaking of worldwide, Black Panther added another $56.2 million internationally this weekend, pushing its overseas cume of $396.6 million for a global tally just shy of $900 million. This weekend saw the film open in Japan with an estimated $2.4 million ($4.2M including previews), besting Ant-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy and Thor: Ragnarok. The UK still leads all international markets with nearly $50 million followed by South Korea ($41.4 million). Black Panther will open in China, its final international market, next weekend.
In second is Fox's Red Sparrow, an adaptation of the first novel in Jason Matthews' trilogy starring Jennifer Lawrence and directed by Francis Lawrence. Debuting in 3,056 locations, the film brought in an estimated $17 million, which is in line with the studio's expectations while a bit behind Mojo's pre-weekend forecast. The film received a "B" CinemaScore and played to an opening weekend audience that was 53% female vs. 47% male and of 79% of its overall audience was over the age of 25.
Red Sparrow also brought in an estimated $26.5 million internationally this weekend. Leading the way was Taiwan with $2.4 million followed by Spain ($2m), Italy ($1.5m) and Hong Kong ($762K). Upcoming markets include Japan (Mar 30), France (Apr 4) and Russia (May 31).
Looking ahead, it's tough to determine just how well this film will perform based on pre-weekend comparisons, which had us looking at Atomic Blonde and Ghost in the Shell, both of which debuted with over $18 million and, like Sparrow, received a "B" CinemaScore. Neither of those films, however, played to a majority female audience with Atomic's 51% male audience being the closest while Ghost in the Shell joined Sparrow in playing to an older audience at 76% over the age of 25. Averaging the two films out would point toward a $45 million domestic run for Sparrow, which seems like a reasonable high-end at this point.
Landing in third is MGM's Death Wish, a remake of Charles Bronson's 1974 classic starring Bruce Willis and directed by Eli Roth. The film debuted in 2,847 locations and delivered an estimated $13 million over its opening weekend. The film received a "B+" CinemaScore and played to an audience that was 57% male vs. 43% female and 53% of the overall audience was over the age of 35. Looking ahead, the debut is relatively in line with our pre-weekend comp to The Foreigner, which opened with $13.1 million and ended its domestic run just shy of $35 million. The Foreigner, however, received a "A-" CinemaScore and was better received by critics suggesting an overall domestic performance right around $30 million may be a better bet.
WB's release of New Line's Game Night held on strong in its second weekend, delivering an estimated $10.7 million, signaling a 37% drop as the film's cume reached $33.5 million in its first ten days in release. Internationally the film added $8.4 million, pushing its worldwide cume just shy of $50 million.
Rounding out the top five is Sony's Peter Rabbit, which dropped just 22% and delivered an estimated $10 million in its fourth weekend in release for a domestic cume that now stands at $84 million. Additionally, the film landed in its first major international market this weekend, bringing in an estimated $12.7 million in China. The film's overall international weekend topped $14 million for a worldwide box office that now tops $101 million. Over the coming weeks the film will launch in Mexico (Mar 16), UK (Mar 16), Australia (Mar 22), Brazil (Mar 22), Germany (Mar 22), Italy (Mar 22), Russia (Mar 22) and Spain (Mar 23).
Outside the top five Sony's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle continued its impressive run with an estimated $4.5 million, pushing its domestic gross to $393.2 million. Added to that, Jumanji brought in an estimated $1.9 million internationally, pushing its global cume to $928.9 million. The film will launch in Japan, its final international market, on April 6.
In limited release Sony Classics's Foxtrot debuted in four locations with an estimated $36,786 ($9,197 PTA) and Hannover's Death House opened in one theater with an estimated $10,295.
Finally, considering it is Oscar Sunday, of this year's Oscar nominees The Greatest Showman is the only nominee that remains in the weekend top ten, having done so for 11 consecutive weeks and it was yet another standout weekend as the film dropped less than 22% for the ninth time out of ten weekends, delivering an estimated $2.67 million for a domestic cume just shy of $165 million.

Box Office RESULTS: "Black Panther" Delivers Fifth Largest Opening of All-Time


MONDAY AM UPDATE: Disney has revised their three and four-day estimates for Black Panther and as expected the grosses continue to rise with the film now delivering an estimated $201.7 million over the three-day and is expected to surpass $235 million for the four-day weekend. This makes Black Panther only the fifth movie to debut with over $200 million over its opening weekend and the third highest four-day gross in history, passing Jurassic World's $234.1 million four-day gross.
The film will most likely break even more records once actuals are in, perhaps including the largest Sunday gross as the current Sunday estimate is currently less than $500k shy of Star Wars: The Force Awakens for the top spot. The film's current estimate of $33.2 million for Monday is already the second largest Monday of all-time, again trailing Force Awakens' $40.1 million Monday from back in December 2015.
It's also worth noting after just four days in release Black Panther is already the 25th highest grossing comic book adaptation of all-time, 12th highest grossing film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and 17th highest grossing Marvel comic adaptation of all-time. This is all before considering it decimated the previous February opening weekend record and President's Day opening record.
We'll have weekend actuals for you on Tuesday afternoon, for now you can check out three-day estimates here and four-day weekend estimates here.
WEEKEND RECAP: Dominating the weekend and delivering one of the largest opening weekends of all-time, Disney and Marvel's Black Panther topped the President's Day weekend box office, outperforming its nearest competitor by nearly $185 million based on estimates. As a result, fellow new wide releases were left in the dust with both Lionsgate's Early Man and PureFlix's Samson struggling in the low single digits. The weekend did, however, have other notable performances such as Sony's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which became the studio's second highest grossing domestic release of all-time, and Fox's The Greatest Showman, which has now topped $150 million at the domestic box office.
Atop the weekend box office with an estimated $192 million for the three-day weekend, Black Panther delivered the fifth largest three-day domestic opening in history and is currently expected to finish around $218 million for the four-day holiday weekend. The performance is also the largest February opening of all-time, the largest President's Day weekend opening of all-time and gives Disney eight of the top ten domestic openings of all-time. Within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Black Panther is the eighteenth release in the franchise and the ninth to open with over $100 million. It's also the second largest opening in the MCU, behind only The Avengers ($207.4m) and topping the $191 million debut for Avengers: Age of Ultron.
From an audience standpoint, Black Panther received an "A+" CinemaScore and played to an audience that was 55% male vs. 45% female, of which 61% were over the age of 25.
Internationally, Black Panther brought in an estimated $169 million from 48 markets for a global, three-day debut of $361 million, the fifteenth largest global opening weekend of all-time. The film managed this feat despite not debuting in China (March 9), Japan (March 1) or Russia, where the film will open next weekend along with Vietnam, Trinidad, Peru and Venezuela. Overall, South Korea leads all markets where the film brought in an estimated $25.3 million followed by the UK ($24.8m), Mexico ($9.6m), Brazil ($9.4m) and Australia ($9.2m).
Sony's Peter Rabbit finished second with an estimated $17.25 million for the three-day, which is expected to bloom to $22+ million for the four-day holiday weekend. The film's domestic cume currently stands at $48 million after ten days in release.
In third is last weekend's #1 pic, Universal's Fifty Shades Freed, which dipped an expected 56%, finishing with an estimated $16.9 million for the three-day and expected to finish around $19 million for the holiday. The film also added another $47.7 million internationally this weekend, pushing its overseas cume over $190 million for a worldwide total that now stands at $268.9 million.
Sony's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle lands in fourth position with an estimated $7.9 million for the three-day and is expected to climb over $10 million for the four-day weekend. The film's domestic cume now stands at over $377.6 million making it Sony's second highest grossing domestic release of all-time, surpassing Spider-Man 2 and now opening the question as to whether it can top Spider-Man's $403.7 million to take over the top spot.
Jumanji also added an estimated $4.8 million internationally this weekend, bringing the film's overseas cume to $527 million for a worldwide total to $904.6 million, which makes the film the studio's second highest worldwide release of all-time, behind only Skyfall's $1.1 billion total. Jumanji will open in Japan on April 6.
Rounding out the top five is Warner Bros.'s release of Clint Eastwood's The 15:17 to Paris, which dropped 39% for an estimated $7.7 million over the three-day and is expected to finish around $9 million for the four-day with a domestic cume approaching $27 million after eleven days in release. The film also added another $2.8 million internationally this weekend from 27 markets, pushing the international running cume to $10.7 million.
Just outside the top five for the first time since opening in late December we find Fox's The Greatest Showman with an estimated $5.1 million, dropping just 21% for a cume that now stands at $154 million. The film is expected to deliver $6.3 million for the four-day weekend.
In seventh position we come to the second of the weekend's new wide releases, Lionsgate's release of Aardman's Early Man, which brought in an estimated $3.15 million for the three-day and is expected to finish around around $4.2 million for the four-day weekend. This puts the film below the mid-single digit pre-weekend expectations, and short of Shaun the Sheep's $4 million debut back in August 2015. The film received a "B" CinemaScore from opening day audiences and played to an audience that was 51% male and 62% over the age of 25.
Rounding out the top ten we find the weekend's third and final new wide release of the weekend, PureFlix's Samson, which fell well short of Mojo's expectations, delivering just $1.97 million for the three-day and is expected to finish around $2.3 million for the four-day. Indicators heading into the weekend suggested Samson might be able to challenge some of the studio's top openers, but instead is settling below even Same Kind of Different as Me, which delivered a $2.5 million three-day back in October 2017, a performance that was also short of expectations.

Box Office RESULTS: 'Fifty Shades Freed' tops the Weekend as Franchise reaches $1 Billion Worldwide


The weekend delivered mostly on expectations with the week's three new wide releases taking the top three spots at the box office. Leading the way was Universal's Fifty Shades Freed, pushing the Fifty Shades franchise over $1 billion globally. Sony's release of Peter Rabbit actually topped expectations while Clint Eastwood's The 15:17 to Paris was a little late arriving in the station, coming up a bit short of Mojo's pre-weekend forecast.
With an estimated $38.8 million, Universal's Fifty Shades Freed topped the weekend box office. While the number is almost spot on with Mojo's pre-weekend expectations it once again shows a decline within the franchise from one film to the next, coming up short of the $46.6 million opening for Fifty Shades Darker one year ago. By the end of its run, Darker pulled in $114.5 million domestically and should Freed deliver a similar multiplier it would be looking at a domestic run right around $95 million based on this weekend's estimate.
Opening weekend audiences gave Freed a "B+" CinemaScore, which is right on par with Darker. The opening weekend audience, however, saw the highest ratio of female to male audience members yet in the franchise, with women making up 75% of the opening weekend moviegoers. Of the overall audience, 55% were under the age of 30.
Internationally, Freed brought in an estimated $98.1 million from 57 markets led by Germany with an estimated $10.7 million for the weekend. This puts the film's worldwide opening at $136.9 million enough to push the franchise over $1 billion combined.
Coming in second is Sony's Peter Rabbit with an estimated $25 million, right on the high end of Mojo's pre-weekend forecast and well ahead of Sony's highly conservative $16 million expectations. The film received a "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences with the weekend overall playing to a crowd that was 58% female and 63% over the age of 25. The film should play well over the coming weeks, with little in the way of animation competition until Sherlock Gnomes at the end of March, and it will begin hitting a small number of international markets next weekend, expanding worldwide over the coming months.
Clint Eastwood's The 15:17 to Paris pulled into third place with an estimated $12.6 million, finishing within tracking, but short of Mojo's forecast. The film wasn't necessarily well received by opening day audiences either, receiving just a "B-" CinemaScore. Opening weekend demos saw the audience nearly split along gender lines, leaning slightly female at 51%, and overall 86% of the total audience was 25 years of age or older.
Internationally, 15:17 to Paris debuted in 23 overseas markets with an estimated $5.3 million. Italy was the highest grossing foreign market, delivering an estimated $1.5 million followed by snow-covered France with $1.4 million.
Finishing in fourth is Sony's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which dropped a measly 10% and delivered an impressive $9.8 million in its eighth weekend in release. This pushes the film's domestic cume to $365.6 million, less than $8 million behind Spider-Man 2 as it will soon become the studio's second highest grossing domestic release of all-time.
Internationally, Jumanji delivered another $7.5 million, pushing its overseas total to $516.1 million and a worldwide cume topping $880 million. This makes the film the studio's third largest worldwide release of all-time, passing Spectre ($880.7m) and Spider-Man: Homecoming ($880.4m).
Rounding out the top five is Fox's The Greatest Showman, which, like Jumanji, is also entering its eighth week in release and dropped just 16.8% for an estimated $6.4 million weekend. The film's domestic cume now stands at $146.5 million. Since debuting on December 20, Greatest Showman has yet to see a weekend drop higher than 19.4% and, like Jumanji, hasn't dropped out of the top five.
In limited release this weekend, Lionsgate and Pantelion's La Boda de Valentina delivered an estimated $1.12 million from 331 theaters ($3,399 PTA); Sony's Pad Man debuted in 125 locations with an estimated $760,000 ($5,000 PTA); Magnolia and Shorts International released the 2018 Oscar Nominated Short Films in 180 theaters with an estimated $615,000 ($3,417 PTA); Gravitas's Bomb City delivered an estimated $31,444 from 17 theaters ($1,850 PTA); Vertical's Golden Exits delivered an estimated $12,210 from one theater; IFC's The Female Brain opened with $7,006 from two locations; and Central Square's The Peacemaker kicked things off in one location with an estimated $4,400.

BOX OFFICE RESULTS: LATE EDITION



Despite a 25% decline compared to the opening for its predecessor, Fox's Maze Runner: The Death Cure still managed a #1 finish at the weekend box office. Meanwhile, Entertainment Studios saw Hostiles deliver a solid performance as it expanded nationwide, Sony's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and The Greatest Showman continue to hold strong, The Shape of Water expands with strong numbers on the heels of its 13 Oscar nominations and Viva's Padmaavat secures a spot in the top ten despite playing in just 324 theaters. All told, the weekend's top twelve was still down ~7% compared to last year as January has slowed to a crawl.
With an estimated $23.5 million Fox's Maze Runner: The Death Cure topped the weekend box office. Carrying the largest budget of the three films ($62m) in the franchise, while not an unexpected debut, it remains a disappointing one as Death Cure comes in ~$7 million behind the debut for Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials and $9 million behind the first film, which debuted in September 2014. Based on these numbers it becomes clear the franchise failed to gain much of an audience outside the core fanbase and the on-set injury to star Dylan O'Brien, which delayed the film's release by nearly a year, didn't help either.
Like Scorch Trials, Death Cure received a "B+" CinemaScore and for the most part the film played similarly across gender lines to its two predecessors with females making up 51% of the total audience. However, it did play slightly older than both the first and second film with 43% of the audience coming in at 25 years or older compared to 33% for Scorch Trials and 36% for the first film.
Internationally, Death Cure began playing overseas last weekend, bringing in $15 million from four markets. This weekend it added nearly 70 markets and brought in an estimated $62.7 million pushing its worldwide cume to $105.5 million.
Finishing in second, and showing no signs of slowing down, is Sony's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which falls to the runner-up position after three weeks in a row atop the box office, but does it in style. The film dropped just 16% this weekend, bringing in an estimated $16.4 million as its domestic cume climbs over $338 million. Not only has Jumanji now passed Spider-Man: Homecoming ($334.2m), but it has also passed Spider-Man 3 to become Sony's third largest domestic release of all-time.
Internationally, the film added an estimated $17.7 million this weekend bringing its international gross to $484 million for a worldwide cume reaching a massive $822 million. From a global perspective, the film is now Sony's fifth largest all time, passing Spider-Man which grossed $821.7 million globally.
Landing in third and more than doubling Mojo's forecast is Entertainment Studios's Hostiles. The film expanded nationwide this weekend into 2,816 locations (+2,697) and brought in an estimated $10.2 million. While this is a bit shy of the studio's bullish $12 million expectations, it shows some of the positive signals we were seeing in advance of release weren't false. With only a "B" CinemaScore it will be interesting to see how the film performs looking forward, but if it can deliver this result at the same time Oscar nominees are gaining so much attention it could hold on with decent numbers next weekend, though its core demo of 25+ males might be a hard sell over Super Bowl weekend.
Fox's The Greatest Showman lands in fourth place and simply refuses to vacate the weekend top five. Dropping just 11% this weekend the film brought in an estimated $9.5 million bringing its domestic cume to $126.4 million. Since going wide on December 20, The Greatest Showman has remained in the top five at the weekend box office and has also delivered four consecutive weekend grosses larger than its opening weekend of $8.8 million, as word of mouth continues to spread. Internationally, the film added an estimated $10 million this weekend bringing its worldwide cume to $259.5 million.
Making it three out of top five for the studio, Fox's The Post rounds out the top five after bringing in an estimated $8.85 million. The Steven Spielberg-directed film was nominated for two Oscars this past week, including Best Picture and Best Actress (Meryl Streep), and has now grossed $58.5 million domestically. The film also added five new international markets this weekend where it grossed an estimated $10.2 million, including a #1 debut in France with $3 million. The film's international cume thus far stands at $24.5 million.
Outside the top five we find The Shape of Water, which received the year's most Oscar nominations with 13, which certainly helped its box office prospects. The film expanded into 1,854 theaters (+1,001) and brought in an estimated $5.7 million bringing the film's domestic total to $37.6 million. Internationally the film played in ten markets this weekend and brought in an estimated $3.2 million, pushing its worldwide cume to $51.5 million.
And rounding out the top ten is a stellar performance from Viva's Padmaavat, which kicked off its weekend in 295 IMAX locations on Thursday with $507k and added another 29 locations over the weekend to finish with an estimated $4.2 million for a chart-topping average of $13,188 per theater. The film's performance breaks the all-time record for the largest Bollywood opening in North America previously held by P.K.s $3.56 million from 2014.
Outside the top ten we find a flurry of Oscar nominees beginning with Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri, which brought in an estimated $3.6 million bringing its domestic cume to $37 million; I, Tonya delivered an estimated $2.9 million from 960 locations for a domestic cume now totaling $18.8 million; Focus's Phantom Thread brought in $2.89 million for a cume of $10.6 million; Darkest Hour delivered $2.1 million for a cume topping $45 million; Lady Bird brought in $1.9 million as it continues to pad its lead as A24's highest grossing film of all-time, now totaling nearly $42 million.
Disney and Pixar's Best Animation contender Coco added an estimated $1.48 million to a domestic cume that now totals $202.7 million and Sony Classics' four-time Oscar nominee, including Best Picture, Call Me by Your Name brought in $1.34 million as its domestic total now tops $11 million. In addition to its domestic performance, Call Me by Your Name brought in $1.7 million internationally bringing its worldwide cume to $17.5 million.
