Weekend Box Office: March 15 - March 17, 2019
As we easily predicted last week, 'Captain Marvel' repeated as the #1 movie at the Box Office this past weekend, nobody else was even close! With $67.9M it dominated theatres and at the time of this post has earned $760M worldwide in just 10 days! Crazy Marvel Money, it will easily be the top grossing film of 2019 until another Marvel movie, 'Avengers: End Game' hits theatres April 26th. In 2nd place was a new animated film 'Wonder Park' with $15.8M, followed by another new film 'Five Feet Apart' with $13.1M in 3rd place. Like we said, it wasn't even close! In 4th place was last week's #2 movie 'How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World', which in 4 weeks has now earned $135M domestic. Rounding out the top spots with $7.8M in 5th place was 'A Madea Family Funeral' from star and director Tyler Perry.
There is only one new movie opening in wide release (3,700 theatres) this coming weekend, the latest thriller from writer/director Jordan Peele called 'Us'. This is a bit of a harder decision to make! With the incredible success of his last film 'Get Out' this movie is highly anticipated, and horror tends to do very well commercially. 'Us' could give 'Captain Marvel' a run for the money this weekend, being it will also be the Captain's 3rd Weekend in theatres. Wow, really tough, our official prediction is that it will be close but 'Captain Marvel' will repeat at #1 for a 3rd time in a row! We could be wrong, but tune in next week to see!
