It’s close, but boss baby is going to narrowly beat disney’s Beauty and the beast and delivered a #1 finish this weekend as it vastly over performed pre-release industry expectations. Meanwhile, Paramount’s ghost in the shell debuted with the opposite result, finishing in third position and well below expectations. Elsewhere, Lionsgate’s Power rangers dropped 60% in its second weekend while WB’s Kong: Skull island, Logan and get out delivered the best holds within the top ten.
finishing second, beauty and the beast delivered $47.5m for it’s third weekend aS IT DOMESTIC CUME REACHES $395.5m IN 17 DAYS, SIMILAR TO THE DARK KNIGHT WHICH FINISHED WITH $533m DOMESTICALLY.
POWER RANGERS FINISHED FOURTH IN IT’S SECOND WEEKEND WITH $14.5M DROPPING A MASSIVE 64%. While the film’s $40 million opening was noteworthy, the $100 million price tag and such a steep drop doesn’t necessarily help its sequel chances. That said, it did add $8.1 million internationally this weekend from 70 markets bringing its worldwide cume to just shy of $100 million with openings in France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Finland and Sweden next week followed by a late April release in South Korea, May release in China and a July release in Japan.
ROUNDING OUT THE TOP 5 IS kONG: Skull Island, which dropped 40%, taking $8.8m as its cume now stands at $147.8 million to go along with a $329.5 million international gross for a worldwide total approaching $500 million.
also dropping 40% is Logan, which finished in sixth with $6.2M as its domestic total now stands at $211.8 million and it’s worldwide cume at $585.4M.
