Box Office Report For January 10-12


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, our crop of new releases goes up against the expansion of recent Golden Globe winner 1917, along with the continued run of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Competing against those two? We have Like a Boss, Underwater, and the wide expansion of Just Mercy. How did they do? Read on to see how the weekend turned out…

Taking over the top spot was 1917, playing nearly like a blockbuster, to the tune of $36.5 million. With Oscar nominations coming tomorrow, look for this to really continue to do well, especially if it comes close to, or leads, nominee wise. Sam Mendes’ war epic is a hit across the board, that’s for sure. 2020 has its first true success story, even if it’s technically a 2019 release.

Like a Boss opened in fourth place, tied with another film in taking in $10 million. Not a bad opening haul for the flick, but nothing to go crazy over either. Pretty much a garden variety January comedy release, so make of that what you will…

Fifth place went to Just Mercy, basically tied with Like a Boss, as mentioned above. Yes, in its expansion, it also grossed $10 million. Go figure, right? If the Academy Awards give this one a boost, you might see it also do better next weekend. Stay tuned to see what happens.

Kristen Stewart couldn’t anchor a hit, as Underwater was only able to muster up a shade over $7 million, making for a debut in the seventh slot. This was either going to be a hit or a flop, and it seems like we’re veering more towards the latter. Alas.
