Disney dominated the holiday weekend with the live action remake of Aladdin, while the other two releases performed around expectations and Avengers crawls ever closer to taking out Avatar on the All-Time box office chart.
If anyone was going to take out The Avengers, it was going to be John Wick and John Wick Chapter 3 took the top spot at the box office with an opening weekend that was more than the first John Wick made in its entire run at the box office and Keanu’s second highest opening of all time.
Avengers: Endgame continues to absolutely dominate the box office both domestically and worldwide as it closes in on the all-time box office record set by Avatar with over $2.188 billion made so far worldwide.
The Curse of La Llorona took the top spot at the box office over the Easter weekend in the last weekend before Avengers: Endgame arrives to destroy every record in its path.
Shazam took the top spot at the box office, meeting WB’s expectations as did Pet Sematary for Paramount while Dumbo took a massive nose dive and Captain Marvel crossed over $1 billion worldwide.
Dumbo took the top spot at the box office but it was below both Disney’s estimates and industry estimates while Captain Marvel is closing in on $1 billion worldwide and Us had a typical horror movie drop from last weekend but remains strong.
How to Train Your Dragon remained on top for the second weekend in a row, fending off the potential final film in the Madea franchise, while Green Book jumped back into the top 5 in a massive post-Oscars boost.
Although it didn’t quite meet the studio’s predictions, Glass took the top spot at the box office with M. Night’s third-best opening of all time and, surprisingly, the best ever opening for Bruce Willis.
The Upside came out much stronger than anticipated at the box office, preventing Aquaman from getting a fourth weekend at #1 but the King of Atlantis has nothing to complain about as Aquaman is now the highest grossing film of the DCEU by far and has made more worldwide than The Dark Knight.
The first weekend of 2019 saw Aquaman remain on top for the third weekend in a row while the first new wide release of 2019, Escape Room, performed above expectations in second place.
