Weekend U.S. Box Office March 8-10, 2019

‘Wonder Woman’ eat your heart out and DC for that matter, as ‘Captain Marvel’ literally marveled the box office this past weekend. Its 150 something million box office take was better than expected and probably has many fans mad and joyous at the same time for different reasons. No one else during the past weekend was able to compete against it and Marvel Studios will be very happy with its performance going into ‘Endgame’.

The final ‘Madea’ film got narrowly beaten by ‘How to Train Your Dragon 3’ this past weekend at the U.S. box office. However, what it demonstrated with its box office performance was that after eleven films in the series, its core audience never wavered from the content after so many films, showing truly their love for Tyler Perry’s most famous character across the years (source).

Elsewhere in the box office it was sight not to be seen with a few films trying to claw their way to greatness and with Oscar Best Picture winner ‘Green Book’ managing to enter back into the top ten after its recent awards success.

Most thought like myself that this would have been a quiet weekend due to the lack of new activity and the Oscars being shown, but we shouldn’t have forgot of the power of dragons and families. As the second sequel of the ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ series, did significantly better compared to the rest of the films these past weeks and also had the best performance out of three films in the series for its opening weekend.

Elsewhere in the box office it was indeed quiet as expected, with all the films doing only from 12 million and under.

Thank Heavens studios have the international market to rely on, as otherwise most of them wouldn’t make ends meet. Case in point, ‘Alita’ that crashed badly in the U.S. market, but internationally made almost around 100 million in its first week.

Same couldn’t be said for other newcomer ‘Isnt It Romantic‘, that did as expected the bare minimum 20 million mark at the box office, but was released only in selected countries in theaters with the rest getting it straight to Netflix. Which is a weird new strategy by the studio that could many viewers in the States question why they had to pay more than 10 or 15 dollars for a ticket for it, when they could have just had it as a part of their subscription bundle in the first place.

Weekend U.S. Box Office February 8-10, 2019

The box office is up and running again (naturally not in full gear) with some films people actually want to see. The same though couldn’t be exactly said for the new Liam Neeson film ‘Cold Pursuit’ that indicates people are either tired of the ‘Taken’ formula or something in the news didn’t help them see this film over the weekend.

Lowest box office weekend so far this year and lowest Superbowl box office weekend as well (source) shouldn’t surprise anyone. Despite of it, ‘Miss Bala‘ managed to get into third place as the only new release in the top ten and ‘Glass‘ is still trying to scratch through to reach the 100 million mark.

Another dull U.S. box office weekend, despite some good films still being out there new and old. In addition, ‘Aquaman‘ may not have made ‘Black Panther’ money in the U.S. box office throughout its run, but on a global scale its a whole another story. (source)

To much excitement and hype ‘Glass‘ finally came out and conquered the lackluster January box office this past weekend. More interesting though is that a ‘Dragon Ball’ film landed in the top ten out of nowhere and that ‘Aquaman’ passed the 300 million mark surpassing ‘Man of Steel’ and potentially also ‘Suicide Squad’ in the upcoming week (source).
