Us Is Set to Turn the Weekend Competition Into a Box Office Blood Bath

Us Is Set to Turn the Weekend Competition Into a Box Office Blood Bath
For the past couple of weeks, it's been Captain Marvel's time to shine at the box office. In its second frame, the latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe pulled in a very impressive $67.9 million last weekend. While the comic book adaptation will do quite well in its third weekend, it will be Jordan Peele's Us that takes home the box office crown as the highly-anticipated horror movie looks to have a huge debut.

Us has been earning rave reviews (for the most part) ever since its debut at SXSW. Up until very recently, it was sitting at a perfect 100 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. This serves as Jordan Peele's sophomore directorial effort and his follow-up to the acclaimed, Oscar-winning Get Out. As such, expectation and anticipation is very high. That will drive it to an opening weekend box office between $38 and $45 million. Though, some analysts believe

The 2019 Box Office Is Down Half a Billion Dollars: It’s Not All Bad News

The 2019 Box Office Is Down Half a Billion Dollars: It’s Not All Bad News
Twelve days into its domestic opening, “Captain Marvel” has earned over $270 million in North America — but that’s not enough to end recent worries about the plunging box office. Revenue is still off by more than 20 percent, suggesting an unusual confluence of factors have created a sudden pronounced lack of interest in moviegoing. Here’s four of them.

Fewer wide-release films

Through last weekend, 2019 has seen 21 films open on more than 1,500 screens. This time last year, that number was 27. Even if those were lesser-grossing titles, figure six fewer films contributed at least $150 million to the shortfall. That doesn’t mean individual films made less this year; indeed, the absence of competition may have meant higher grosses for them. However, this looks like the new normal as studios conserve their firepower to produce fewer, more-expensive titles.

Christmas was weak

To put it kindly, January is a month for more secondary titles.

Box Office: Can Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ Dethrone ‘Captain Marvel’?

Box Office: Can Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ Dethrone ‘Captain Marvel’?
Will lightning strike twice for Jordan Peele?

That’s the big question this weekend as “Us,” the horror maven’s latest undertaking that puts the spotlight on not one, but two Lupita Nyong’os, arrives on the big screen. After Peele’s Oscar-winning directorial debut “Get Out” captured the zeitgeist and became a box office smash, audiences have been foaming at the mouth to see the filmmaker’s next nightmare.

“Us,” a psychological thriller about a family confronted by a band of doppelgangers, is expected to earn between $38 million and $45 million when it debuts in 3,700 North American locations. Some industry trackers anticipate that solid word of mouth could propel numbers closer to $50 million. That would surpass the opening weekend haul of “Get Out,” which launched with $33 million and ended its theatrical run with $176 million in the States and $255 million globally. “Us” is touching down in 48 international markets, including France, the United Kingdom,

Captain Marvel Goes Big in 2nd Weekend with $69M Box Office Win

Captain Marvel Goes Big in 2nd Weekend with $69M Box Office Win
Captain Marvel is at the top of the box office yet again with an impressive $69.3 million domestic haul. This brings the Carol Danvers standalone movie to $760.2 million globally in just two weeks as it puts its sights on DC's Aquaman numbers. Marvel Studios' first female-led superhero movie is enjoying mostly positive reviews from fans and critics as the Marvel Cinematic Universe prepares for Avengers: Endgame, which hits theaters late next month and also stars Brie Larson.

As far as the long game is considered, Captain Marvel will more than likely cross the $1 billion mark at the box office in the weeks to come, possibly slaying the recent impressive Aquaman numbers globally. As the movie continues to dominate at the box office, Brie Larson's name gets thrown around a lot more. The Academy Award winning actress is now one of the biggest and most recognizable stars in the world,

Captain Marvel” continues to dominate the box office in its second weekend, topping the charts with $69 million grossed domestically and $119.7 million grossed overseas.

While the domestic total was a 56 percent drop from the film’s $153.4 million opening weekend — larger than the 43-44 percent drop for “Black Panther” and “Wonder Woman” — it still sits only behind 2017’s “Beauty and the Beast” ($90 million) on the all-time list of second weekend totals in March. With $189 million grossed worldwide this weekend, including $12.5 million from IMAX screens, the film now has a global total of $760 million, surpassing the $623 million global run of “Ant-Man & The Wasp” in less than two weeks.

‘Captain Marvel’ to Blast Past $250 Million in Domestic Box Office on 2nd Weekend
Marvel Studios’ “Captain Marvel” continues to fly high in its second weekend at the box office, as it is estimated to earn $70 million from domestic receipts after making $19 million on Friday.

While that weekend total would signify a higher drop-off than “Black Panther” — 54 percent compared to 44 percent for the 2018 hit — a $70 million result would be the second-highest second weekend total in March box office history, sitting only behind the “Beauty and the Beast” remake’s $90 million made in 2017. With this result, the 10-day domestic total for “Captain Marvel” will rise to $266 million.

'Captain Marvel' Readies for Second Weekend Atop the Box Office

'Captain Marvel' Readies for Second Weekend Atop the Box Office
After last weekend saw the weekend box office top the same weekend in 2018 for the first time all year, this weekend looks as if it is going to be tight on that front. Disney and Marvel's Captain Marvel is certain to top the weekend yet again as it pushes over $260 million domestically in just ten days while Paramount debuts the animated feature Wonder Park, Lionsgate and CBS release Five Feet Apart and Focus releases the near-future thriller Captive State. Also looking at a top ten finish is Lionsgate's release of No Manches Frida 2, the sequel to the 2016 feature that debuted with over $3.6 million from just 362 locations. At the top for a second weekend in a row will be Disney's release of Marvel's Captain Marvel, which debuted with a strong $153.4 million last weekend and has been pacing relatively similarly to The Hunger Games since release.

Will Captain Marvel Hold Strong Against Wonder Park and Captive State This Weekend?

Last weekend, Marvel gave the box office a much-needed shot in the arm with Captain Marvel, which brought in a truly impressive $153.4 million domestically, on its way to a $455 million global opening. The hot streak for Marvel Studios is set to continue as their newest hero will once again win the weekend as a trio of newcomers will fall well short of taking the box office crown. This weekend's new releases include Paramount's Wonder Park, Lionsgate's Five Feet Apart and Focus Features' Captive State.

Captain Marvel, which comes from directing duo Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden, will easily win its second weekend at the box office. The question is, by how much? Either way, it's going to be a landslide, but it's a matter of how steep the drop off is going to be. Estimates have its total landing between $70 and $85 million, which is a pretty major difference.
