Box Office Report For December 6-8


Welcome back one and all to the weekly box office report! As is always the case, each and every Sunday you can expect a look at what made the most money in theaters, as well as just how all of the new releases fared. This week, Disney has once again continued raking in tons of money for their record breaking animated sequel Frozen II, making it a very hard champion to dethrone. Going up against the cartoon giant for top honors this time around essentially just a bunch of holdovers. How did they all do? Read on to see how the weekend turned out…

Frozen II once again led the charge, taking in another $34.6 million, bringing its tremendous cume to nearly $338 million, domestically. Disney will almost certainly be planning a third installment at some point in the future, as audiences continue to eat this franchise up, even if the critical acclaim was more muted this time around.

Quickly, the rest of the top five remained the same. Knives Out remained number two, continuing to exceed expectations. $14.1 million more went into its highly profitable pockets. Third place went to Ford v Ferrari, as it approaches the $100 million mark, domestically. A shade over $6.5 million was enough to keep the bronze, as Queen & Slim made just about the same $6.5 million, good for fourth. Then, there was A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, which grabbed fifth place with $5.2 million.

Dark Waters also jumped up into the top ten, grabbing the sixth spot with a $4.1 million dollar haul. The Mark Ruffalo fronted legal drama might not wind up being totally lost in the holiday season shuffle after all, especially if it holds in the coming weeks…

On just two screens, Portrait of a Lady on Fire began its theatrical run, grabbing about 67K. Look for that one to expand around art houses as 2019 comes to a close.
