‘Captain Marvel’ Weekend Two: Capturing Half of All Moviegoers

‘Captain Marvel’ Weekend Two: Capturing Half of All Moviegoers
Captain Marvel” continued its dominance with a $69 million second weekend. The 55 percent second weekend drop is on par with the most recent “Avengers” and “Thor” entries; by contrast, “Wonder Woman” and “Black Panther” each dropped about 44 percent in their second outings.

Of all moviegoers this week, about half went to see “Captain Marvel.” That left the total gross, which will end up somewhat above $140 million, about $10 million above the same weekend last year. That’s two up weekends in a row after a long string of inferior three-day totals. That brings the year-to-date drop to just under 19 percent, with a total take lagging by about $460 million from where things stood in 2018.

The domestic take so far for the Brie Larson starrer is up to $266 million 10 days in, with over $400 million (about where “Wonder Woman” ended up) looking certain. The foreign take of $494 million brings worldwide to $760 million. That makes the

Welcome back to the weekly box office report! Plus, a very happy St. Patrick’s Day to you all! Each Sunday, expect a look at what made the most money in theaters, as well as just how all of the new releases fared. This week, Carol Danvers and the Marvel Cinematic Universe continued to dominate the marketplace with a strong second week for Captain Marvel.

‘Captain Marvel’ Continues To Fly High In Its Second Week

A sluggish quartet of new arrivals proved to be no match for Captain Marvel this weekend at the North America box office, which earned more than double the combined debut numbers of Five Feet Apart, Wonder Park, No Manches Frida 2 and Captive State.

While the box office is starting to show more signs of life –this weekend was up 3% in comparison to one year ago at this time-, the overall year is still struggling by 19% to catch up with 2018’s record numbers. That gap should continue to erode as highly anticipated features such as Us, Dumbo and Shazam! begin to arrive over the next few weeks.

Until then, it is all about Carol, Nick and Goose. In its second weekend on 4,310 screens, Captain Marvel decreased its box office altitude by 55% to capture a still-heroic $69.3 million. After ten days of release, Marvel’s domestic total is a super $266.2 million.

Film Review: ‘No Manches Frida 2’

  • Variety
For proof of American cinema’s global reach, look no further than “No Manches Frida 2,” which like its 2016 predecessor hews to a tried-and-true Hollywood comedy formula, albeit one embellished with distinctly Mexican flavor. Bright, crude and aggressively hackneyed, director Nacho G. Velilla’s follow-up prizes energy over originality. While its humor elicits far more eye-rolls than laughs — and will thus leave franchise newbies cold — its high-octane style should appeal to fans of the first film when it opens nationwide in theaters on March 15, courtesy of Pantelion Films.

In the original “No Manches Frida”, thief-turned-teacher Zequi (Omar Chaparro) saved Frida Kahlo High School by turning around its wayward students, and successfully wooed nerdy colleague Lucy (Martha Higareda). Now set to marry Lucy, Zequi finds his life in ruins due to a vomitus mishap at the altar. Compounding that calamity, Frida Kahlo High is once again on the verge of being shut down.
