Box Office Report For February 28-March 1


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, we have a rather small batch of of new releases opening, including The Invisible Man and My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising. They went up against the continued success of Sonic the Hedgehog. How did they all do? Read on to see how the weekend turned out…

Taking the top honors this week was The Invisible Man, riding exceedingly strong reviews to an estimated $29 million start. Universal Pictures and Blumhouse found a clever and effective way to make the classic horror movie character into a modern terror, with Elisabeth Moss doing award worthy work as the woman being stalked. Audiences trusted critics and were rewarded this weekend, that’s for sure.

My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising opened at number five, taking advantage of only having The Invisible Man as wide new release competition. The hit anime franchise made a little over $5 million, which had to be pleasing, considering the low expectations. Look for the series to continue to put forth big screen efforts in the years to come…

Continuing to impress and surprise, Impractical Jokers: The Movie cracked the top ten. Expanding into more theaters, it made a little over $3.5 million. At this rate, going wider next weekend wouldn’t be a shock, with another solid gross to come. Fans are turning and out making this a surprise hit, considering the small budget and lack of marketing.

Opening in limited release, Wendy took in an estimated $30K from four screens, while Greed made a little over $28K, also on a quartet of screens. On five screens, Burden managed just a shade over $20K. None were able to break through in the manner hoped for. Alas…
