Weekend Box Office: March 1 - 3 & March 8 - 10, 2019
Welcome back to our Box Office Report! We missed the previous week on vacation so we've got a lot to catch up on! We did predict 2 weeks ago in our last report that for the Weekend of March 1st to 3rd 'How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World' would repeat as the #1 movie & that is indeed what happened. With $30M bringing its 2 week domestic total to $97.6M, it narrowly edged out the latest film from Tyler Perry's character Madea, 'A Madea Family Funeral'. It came in 2nd place with an opening weekend of $27M. Rounding out the other top spots were 'Alita: Battle Angel' in 3rd with $7.2M; 4th was 'The Lego Movie 2' with $6.6M & 5th place was 'Fighting With My Family'. Produced & Starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson with $4.6M.
In our last report 2 weeks ago we also predicted what would be the #1 film for the weekend of March 8 - 10th, 'Captain Marvel'! It easily won the box office with an impressive opening weekend of $153M! With foreign box office as well, it did an insane $456M total world-wide in just 3 days lol! That was an easy call to make, nothing else was even going to come close. In 2nd place this past weekend 'How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World' did $14.6M, bringing it's global 3 week total to a respectable $436M. In 3rd place with $12.4M was 'A Madea Family Funeral'. 'The Lego Movie 2' repeated in 4th place with $3.8M and rounding out the top spots in 5th place this past weekend was 'Alita: Battle Angel' with $3.2M.
There are 3 new movies opening this coming weekend! The Sci-Fi Thriller 'Captive State', the romance drama 'Five Feet Apart' & the animated feature 'Wonder Park'. Good luck to all of them, but nothing is stopping the juggernaut that is 'Captain Marvel'. We might see some of these new films crack the top 5 as older movies fizzle out, however our official prediction (and an easy one to make) is that 'Captain Marvel' will repeat as the #1 Movie at the Box Office this coming Weekend!
