Birds of Prey took the top spot at the box office but it was definitely not an opening that WB/DC wanted as it underperformed with the lowest opening of any recent DC movie while a number of Oscar winners and nominees saw bumps in their box office performance over the weekend.
Bad Boys for Life remained on top of the box office over the Super Bowl weekend while The Rhythm Section opened to the absolute worst opening of all time for a movie in over 3,000 theaters.
Bad Boys for Life remained strong in its second weekend of release and will easily become the highest grossing Bad Boys movie worldwide while the weekend’s new releases had fairly soft openings, with one garnering disasterous word of mouth.
Bad Boys for Life had a massive MLK holiday weekend opening, breaking a number of records, while Dolittle got off to a mediocre start compared to its absurdly massive budget.
The surprisingly well-received Bad Boys for Life arrives in theaters this weekend alongside what is apparently the first truly terrible movie of 2020, Dolittle with Robert Downey Jr.
2020 begins with a slew of horror, including a new spin on The Grudge, the return of Bad Boys with Bad Boys for Life, World War I epic 1917, the latest from Guy Ritchie with The Gentlemen and more in January.
