Box Office Report for February 1-3


Welcome back to the weekly box office report! Each Sunday, expect a look at what made the most money in theaters, as well as just how all of the new releases fared. This week, Miss Bala entered the marketplace, hoping to be the one to dethrone the current box office champion. How did it do? Let us take a look right now, though it’s worth mentioning that this was the worst Super Bowl weekend box office in decades, so temper your expectations…

The top spot this weekend once again went to the returning champ in Glass, though this time around, it could be considered a bit of a surprise. For this frame, it took in just about $9.5 million. That haul represents another big drop, this one of nearly 50%, Currently, it stands at an overall total of $88.6 million. M. Night Shyamalan retains the crown today for another week, though next time around, that should be the end of his reign.

Coming in at number two once again, believe it or not, was last week’s runner up, The Upside. Yet another ridiculously strong hold for the film means it took in about $8.8 million into its coffers. Like I’ve mentioned time and again, without question, this is a surprise hit. A few months ago, it was thought to have been dumped into January, a victim of The Weinstein Company coming to an end. Now, it’s a success story for STX. With over $75 million in its pockets, there’s still an off chance it can make $100 million before all is said and done. Moving back down to number three was Aquaman, which made another $4.7 million.

In a very disappointing turn, hitting at number three was the only new wide release of the week in Miss Bala. Making only $6.7 million, this remake just couldn’t find an audience, suffering from mediocre reviews and a lack of interest in the remake.

Among indie debuts, Piercing was the only one of note to report a box office take, making $8.500 from 25 locations…
