On a Low-Grossing Box Office Weekend, ‘Split’ Stays Super, Bowls Over ‘Rings’

5 February 2017 3:40 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Although the Super Bowl directly affects only part of one day of the weekend, that’s enough to create an overall lousy box office. The problem isn’t the sportsball competition itself, but that event always serves as a signifier to distributors: This isn’t the time to release the good stuff.

At an estimated $76 million, this year’s Super Bowl weekend was about the same as last year, and worse than almost every 2016 weekend (exceptions: pre-Halloween and early December).

In addition to “Split,” “Rings” will battle “Hidden Figures,” “La La Land,” and the second weekend of “A Dog’s Purpose” (Universal) for positions among the top six. There’s also “The Space Between Us” (Stx), the second science-fiction romance after “Passengers” in under two months. None of these films are likely to bring in even $15 million, and not all are guaranteed to top $10 million.

Super Bowl weekend is reliably one of the lowest grossing of the year. Like other weak weekends (post Labor Day, some Halloweens, early December), there’s an element of self-fulfilling prophecy as studios avoid it for top releases. Still, free from direct competition, it’s a »
