It was a pretty quiet weekend, as The Jungle Book easily stayed in first place, pulling in another 42 million for a new total of 252 million, as it fell just 31 percent from last week. It was the only movie to earn double digits this weekend, and its worldwide total is now at 684 million. Key and Peele's comedy Keanu, meanwhile, opened to a soft 9 million and a so-so "B" Cinemascore, so it looks like the duo's first film isn't going to make much noise, though it tied for second place with The Huntsman. That film fell about 52 percent over last week, bringing in around 9 million as well, for a new total of 34 million, but of course, as we mentioned last time, given the budget on that one it's an epic bomb.
Garry Marshall's horribly reviewed ensemble rom-com Mother's Day debuted with 8 million, which is a sign that he can maybe stop making these now, as they seem to exist only to employ A-list actors as favors to the director. His Valentine's Day opened big with 56 million back in 2010, but New Year's Eve bombed with just 13 million in 2011, so I think it's safe to say these are over. Rounding out the top five was Barbershop, which is sitting at 44 million total.
- The Jungle Book- 42 million
- The Huntsman: Winter's War- 9.4 million
- Keanu- 9.4 million
- Mother's Day- 8.3 million
- Barbershop: The Next Cut- 6.1 million
So, not much to report in limited release this week either, as we're all waiting for the inevitable box office storm that Captain America: Civil War will bring next week, especially seeing as it's essentially the next Avengers movie anyway. As it is, the movie's already debuted overseas and brought in a record 200 million from just a few territories, so we can expect this to be very big. I'd say a 200 million domestic weekend is pretty likely at this point, and the good reviews don't hurt it, of course. See you guys then.
