“Captain Marvel” has provided a real jump start for the box office. In just twelve days, the film has generated $760M at the globally. That, coupled with over-performing newcomers might mean this week represents a turning point from what had been a slow start to the year.
“Captain Marvel” posted a second weekend drop of 54.8%, which is slightly better than the Marvel Cinematic Universe average of 56%. That gave the film a $69.3M weekend and a ten day total of $266M. The film looks set to post solid numbers in the weeks to come and sets the table for “Avengers: Endgame” to obliterate all sorts of box office records when it opens next month.
The second place finisher, “Wonder Park,” racked up a distant, but respectable, $16M. The film opened in over 3,800 locations and received a CinemaScore of B+. With no major family releases looming in the near future, it is possible “Wonder Park” can hang on and post solid numbers for the rest of the month.
With a CinemaScore of A, the third place finisher, “Five Feet Apart” looks set to have long legs. The Romance grossed an estimated $13M and outpaced comparable openers like “Love, Simon” and “Everything, Everything.” The film did especially well with women and the younger segment of the audience.
DreamWorks Animation’s “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World” dipped by 36% to finish with an estimated $9.3M. That puts its domestic haul at just over $135M.
The weekend’s two other openers were “No Manches Frida 2” and “Captive State.” Each posted a similar number, but had very different expectations.
“No Manches Frida 2” debuts with nearly $4M from just under 500 theaters. That impressive haul puts it ahead of its predecessor and came with a CinemaScore of A.
“Captive State” on the other hand, finished with just over $3M in over 2,500 locations. The film earned an embarrassing C- CinemaScore and looks unlikely to be headed toward anything like success.
The rest of the top ten is populated by holdovers like “Alita: Battle Angel” and “Green Book.” Next week, “Us,” Jordan Peele’s followup to his massive hit “Get Out,” will open in over 3,600 theaters.
