Weekend U.S. Box Office December 21-23, 2018

This weekend had quite a few new releases, with three big ones in particular that were duking it out. All of which were vying for the same crowds of families and general audience members that go for whatever is the hippest or closest to their tastes. ‘Aquaman’ was the winner of the three and might not have earned more than most would expect, but for a property still unknown to most, it did quite favorably and especially if you put into account its international box office, which DC Films will be mighty happy about.

The same couldn’t be said for films in position 2 or 3 of the U.S. Box Office, with ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ not being worthy of people returning to the movie theaters for it and the 6th ‘Transformer’ film that is looking to be one of the last, if its international box office doesn’t have anything to say about it.
