Behind the US/Worldwide Weekend Box Office – 5.12.2019

  OPENINGS:  POKEMON: DETECTIVE PIKACHU (Legendary/Warners) started strong in the US with $58M, not that far off the $69.1M launch of The LEGO Movie.  Pikachu may not have that movie’s legs, especially with Aladdin...

Behind the US/Worldwide Weekend Box Office – 3.31.2019

  OPENINGS:  DUMBO (Disney) had a 14% Saturday bump that was merely OK considering its underwhelming first day, and that brought it to a $45M weekend.  Even if it reaches $150M in the US, it would need help to get out of...

EARLY FRIDAY BOX OFFICE: “Dumbo” Flies Low, “Unplanned” OK, “Hotel Mumbai” & “The Beach Bum” Dim

  The Disney machine is hitting an atypical pothole with DUMBO (Disney), which according to preliminary numbers at Deadline had a $14.8M Friday ($2.6M of that from Thursday night).  That’s very much on the low end o...
