The box office was slow this weekend, as expected, with none of the new releases making much of an impact, allowing the third Kung Fu Panda movie to stay on top with 21 million. The Coen Brothers' Hail, Caesar only pulled in a paltry 11 million and a dreadful "C-" Cinemascore, so expect a huge dropoff on that one in the coming weeks, while Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was a total bust, coming in with a mere 5 million for the three day frame.
The Nicholas Sparks movie The Choice managed to make it into the top five, but with just 6 million, making it the first Sparks adaptation to make less than 10 million on opening weekend. Meanwhile, Star Wars stuck around in the top five, bringing its new total to a whopping 905 million and crossing the 2 billion mark worldwide, and Oscar hopeful The Revenant earned another 7 million for a 149 million total domestic.
- Kung Fu Panda 3- 21 million
- Hail, Caesar- 11.4 million
- The Revenant- 7.1 million
- Star Wars: The Force Awakens- 6.9 million
- The Choice- 6.1 million
Again this week there's not much to report in limited release, so let's just move on to what's coming next week, shall we? Finally, we have a couple of films with a real chance to break out, and that's Deadpool and Zoolander 2, so we may have a real dude bro audience out in force next week. See you then.
