Box Office Report for March 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, Tyler Perry entered the marketplace with Tyler Perry’s A Madea Family Funeral, hoping to beat back the competition and become the box office champion, along with a couple of other new releases of note. How did they all do? Let us take a look right now at just that…

The top spot this weekend, unsurprisingly, went back to the third entry in the How to Train Your Dragon series. Yes, we have How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World as our returning box office champion. A 45% drop gave it another $30 million, as it approaches a $100 million total in the next few days. Dreamworks has another animated hit on their hands.

Coming in at number two was Tyler Perry’s A Madea Family Funeral, over performing a bit in the process. Perry’s sendoff to the Madea character took in about $27 million, which wasn’t good enough for the top slot but still made for a strong haul.

Jumping up to number five was the Best Picture winner Green Book, which expanded back into wide release and took in $4.7 million. A little down the list, the other new wide release was Greta, which made $4.5 million in a modest start.

Among indie/smaller debuts, Apollo 11 opened at number fourteen, on 120 screens, and made $1.6 million, due in part to IMAX screenings. Climax played on five screens and made 121K, Saint Judy made 44K from 55 screens, and The Wedding Guest made 20K from four screens.
