The World Better Prepare for When I’m a Billionaire


Through Sunday, Disney’s sequel The Rise of Skywalker earned $478.2M domestic and $511.4M overseas, for a $989.6M global total. Although it fell slightly short of the billion-dollar mark, it looks to cross the threshold on Monday or Tuesday.


That would mean it reached the mark in either 25 or 26 days of release. While it’s hard to call a billion-dollar film a disappointment, previous installments The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi reached the mark in 12 and 19 days, respectively.


You Only Have One Shot


Fresh off its Golden Globe Award last week for best drama, Universal’s 1917 went to war with $37.0M in its wide expansion weekend. That was on the higher end of pre-release projections, and dethroned Rise of Skywalker which had led for three consecutive frames.


1917’s audience was 60% male and 80% age 25+. It posted the weekend’s best per-theater average with $10,629, also ahead of any limited releases.


Versus comparable titles, it opened -26.7% behind Dunkirk but more than double Hacksaw Ridge.


Like It Or Not


Paramount’s R-rated comedy Like a Boss took fourth place with $10.0M, in line with pre-release projections. The audience was 60% female and 65% age 25+.


Versus comparable titles, it opened -45.0% behind What Men Want and -57.5% behind The Boss, but +25.0% ahead of Rough Night and +54.2% ahead of Second Act.


Just Okay


Warner Bros.’ legal drama Just Mercy rested its case with $9.7M and fifth place in its wide expansion weekend, in line with pre-release projections. The film’s audience was 60% female and 85% age 25+.


Versus comparable titles, it opened +60.0% ahead of On the Basis of Sex and more than double Roman J. Israel, Esq.


Boss and Mercy had exactly tied in Sunday’s studio weekend estimates with $10.0M each, but Boss remained at that level in Monday’s actuals, while Mercy fell about $0.3M short.


Below Sea Level


Disney/Fox’s thriller Underwater was left gasping for air with $7.0M and seventh place. The film’s audience was 50% male/female and 63% age 25+.


Versus comparable titles, it opened -43.9% below Life and -68.7% below Contagion.


How’d This Weekend Compare?


Total box office this weekend was $131.3M. That’s -7.8% below last weekend but +9.8% above this same weekend last year, when The Upside led with $20.3M.


The Year So Far


Year-to-date box office stands at $413.7M. That’s +5.3% above this same date last year, down from +7.2% after last weekend.
