Box Office Report for March 8-10


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, Carol Danvers and the Marvel Cinematic Universe entered the marketplace with a bang, debuting Captain Marvel. The hope was not just to beat back the competition and become the box office champion but to dominate it in the process. Considering how almost nothing else opened against the film, it was a safe bet. Just how well did it do, however? Let us take a look right now at just that…

The top spot this weekend, unsurprisingly and in a blowout, went to the latest entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Yes, we had Captain Marvel dominate the box office, taking in an estimated $153 million. This is a top ten opener for the MCU and the third best March debut ever. Suffice to say, Marvel has another smash hit on their hands. The attempts by trolls to take it down did absolutely nothing, that’s for sure.

Coming in at number two was last week’s champion in How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World. The franchise ender had a $14.6 million haul, which is a drop of around 50%. It’s still a pretty solid cume so far for the animated hit, which should still make a few more bucks in the weeks to come…

The number three finisher was Tyler Perry’s A Madea Family Funeral, which made just over $12 million this weekend. Nothing else made over $10 million, so it was a top heavy situation, as you might imagine.

Among indie/smaller debuts, Badla had a 614K start from 94 screens, the western The Kid made 505K on 268 screens, while the Julianne Moore led Gloria Bell opened on just five screens and took in just under 155K…
