Monday Update: Disney’s superhero blockbuster Captain Marvel led the box office for a second weekend with $67.9M. That -55.7% drop was about in line with Catching Fire and Rogue One, though more than the -43.3% decline for Wonder Woman.


Paramount’s animated Wonder Park opened a bit above expectations with $15.8M and second place. CBS Films’ romantic drama Five Feet Apart began in third place with $13.1M, also above expectations.


Universal’s Best Picture winner Green Book earned an 11th weekend in the top 10, the first film to do so since Black Panther last April.

On Sunday, Disney overtook Warner Bros. to become the highest-grossing movie studio of 2019. Disney is expected to maintain that first place rank throughout the rest of this year, judging by its strong release schedule.


Comparisons


Total box office this weekend was $138.8M.


That’s -33.9% below last weekend but +4.5% above this same weekend last year, when Black Panther led for a fifth frame with $26.6M.


Year-to-date box office stands at $2.00B. That’s -18.7% behind this same date last year, up from -21.2% after last weekend.


Most analysts are still predicting 2019’s box office to ultimately beat 2018’s, on the strength of this year’s anticipated strong upcoming slate of films, especially sequels.


Demographics


Audience demographics for this weekend’s top 30 films will be posted here once available.

Sunday Update: Predictably, this weekend saw Captain Marvel continue to dominate the North American box office with an estimated $69.3 million, a solid sophomore frame for the superhero blockbuster that has reached lofty heights across the globe in less than two weeks of release. Meanwhile, two new wide releases – the animated adventure Wonder Park and the YA rom-dram Five Feet Apart – both performed better than expected in second and third place, respectively, leading to one of the more robust Top 10s so far this year.





Following its incredible $153.4 million opening last weekend (the third-highest opening ever in the month of March), Captain Marvel continued scoring with audiences in its second weekend, dipping roughly 55%. That’s a fairly typical drop for the second weekend of an MCU title, roughly in line with last year’s Avengers: Infinity War (55.5% drop) and 2017’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (55.5%). The Disney release now has a super-sized $266.2 million after ten days, a total that puts in twelfth place among all MCU installments, just ahead of Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($259.7 million) and just below Iron Man 2 ($312.4 million). With very positive word-of-mouth, look for Captain Marvel to continue performing well all the way up to the April 26 release of Avengers: Endgame, which will feature Brie Larson’s title character in her second MCU outing. It is now the 25th highest-grossing superhero movie of all time.





Working its way into second place with a stronger-than-expected total was Wonder Park, which debuted with an estimated $16 million. Going into the weekend, the Paramount release’s opening gross was generally expected to be somewhere in the low double-digits, but it rose a bit above that likely thanks to the its younger-skewing subject matter, which made it a viable counter-programming option for families who’ve already caught How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World and The LEGO Movie 2. Additionally, certain areas of the country are currently on their Spring Break, which may also have helped boost its performance this weekend.





Wonder Park could have conceivably debuted even higher were it not for the film’s poor critical reviews (it currently has just 30% on Rotten Tomatoes), which may have kept more discerning families away. Additionally, for a film with a budget that some have pegged as high as $100 million, this isn’t a totally encouraging start, and the track ahead looks considerably rougher, particularly with Disney’s highly-anticipated live-action Dumbo (March 29) looming on the horizon.





Also overperforming in third place was Five Feet Apart, about two young people with cystic fibrosis who fall in love. The Lionsgate/CBS Films release falls squarely in the wheelhouse of previous movies like The Fault in Our Stars and If I Stay, and its $ million opening came in just a couple million short of the latter’s $15.6 million debut in 2014. Despite only mixed reviews (it has a 53% on Rotten Tomatoes), audiences awarded the film an “A” CinemaScore, and positive word-of-mouth seems to have boosted its gross this weekend. Its CinemaScore among moviegoers 18 and under was an even better “A+,” which indicates it’s been pushing all the right buttons for its core demo of teenage girls and could be looking at a leggy run in the weeks ahead. Notably, its opening weekend take nearly doubled its $7 million budget.





Falling to fourth place was How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, which brought in an estimated $9.3 million in its fourth weekend of release. With $135.6 million so far, the Universal title has fallen slightly behind How to Train Your Dragon 2 and significantly behind the first film in the series, which was the leggiest entry in the series by far.





Fifth went to Tyler Perry’s A Madea Family Funeral, which brought in an estimated $8 million in its third weekend. The Lionsgate release has now grossed a healthy $59 million, surpassing the $53.3 million total of Madea’s Big Happy Family to put it in fifth place among all installments of the long-running franchise.





Sixth place went to No Manches Frida 2, the second in the comedy series released by Lionsgate subsidiary Pantelion Films. Its $3.8 million opening represents a healthy total for a film debuting in only 472 locations, and it’s a slight improvement on the $3.6 million opening gross of the first movie (though that one debuted in roughly 100 fewer theaters). This marks the latest successful release by Pantelion, which has minted a number of hits aimed at the Latinx audience since launching in 2011, including 2017’s How to Be a Latin Lover and last year’s Overboard remake starring Eugenio Derbez and Anna Faris.





The weekend’s final wide new release, Focus Features’ sci-fi/thriller Captive State, debuted poorly in seventh place with an estimated $3.1 million, a disappointing result for a film opening on over 2,500 screens. That represents a weak per-screen average of just $1,241, putting it in the same ballpark as the sci-fi disappointment Replicas ($2.3 million opening) that hit theaters back in January. This one wasn’t helped by middling reviews and a general lack of awareness from audiences, not to mention the crowded overall marketplace.





Down in eighth was The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, which brought in an estimated $2.1 million in its sixth weekend. The Warner Bros. title has now surpassed the $100 million mark, but it took far longer to do so than its predecessor, which crossed the threshold in just its second weekend.





In ninth place, Alita: Battle Angel grossed an estimated $1.9 million, giving it $81.8 million after five weeks of release.





Rounding out the Top 10 was Universal’s Green Book, which brought in $1.28 million in its eighteenth weekend for a domestic total of $82.6 million.





Limited Release:





Focus Features’ The Mustang took in an estimated $76K on just four screens, giving the critically-acclaimed drama about a convict who bonds with a wild horse a healthy per-screen average of $19K in its opening frame.





After generating one of the best per-screen averages of the year so far in its debut on just five screens last weekend, Fox Searchlight’s Gloria Bell expanded to 39 locations and grossed an estimated $$354K, giving the A24 release a per-screen average of over $10K. The critically-acclaimed Julianne Moore drama expands nationwide next Friday.





Overseas Update:





Captain Marvel racked up an estimated $119.7 million this weekend in 54 markets, bringing its international total to $494 million and its global cume to $760.2 million. Totals include $132 million in China, $36.5 million in Korea, $30.9 million in the UK, $24.3 million in Brazil, and $22.4 million in Mexico. With this weekend’s totals, the Disney-Marvel blockbuster is now the seventeenth highest-grossing superhero title ever internationally.
