Next weekend, viewers will flood in droves to US cinemas to be the first to see the blockbuster Captain Marvel, which is expected to start at $ 100- $ 120 million. In the meantime, the North American box office is resting before the breakthrough: there were only a couple of films on the list of new products, and the total distributor fees fell by 10% compared to the previous week and by 23% - with the same weekend in 2018.|
The top five for the weekend (March 1-3) is as follows:
1. "How to Train Your Dragon 3"
Week at the box office: 2
Added: $ 30 million
Total box office: $ 97.7 million
Sank / Rise: - (-45.4%)
The third part of the animation franchise did not give the victory to the old lady Madea, although the latter tried very hard to take the laurels of the championship for herself. So far, the triquel is ahead of its brothers in the film series in terms of growth rates, but analysts believe that this will not last long. At the moment, "How to Train Your Dragon 3" has a total of $ 375.4 million. And if the first cartoon of the cycle with its $ 494.9 million at the worldwide box office can still be bypassed, the final result of the second ($ 621.5 million) still seems unattainable.
2. "Madea at the funeral"
Week at the box office: 1
Added: $ 27.1 million
Total box office: $ 27.1 million
Sank / Rise: - (-)
Old Madea decided to retire by slamming the door loudly at last. Madea at a Funeral is set to be the final installment of the Tyler Perry franchise, and even if Lionsgate doesn't get the filmmaker to sign up for another sequel, Madea will definitely be remembered by American audiences. Madea at a Funeral showcased one of the best starts in the film series, exceeded distributors' expectations and received a high A- score from early viewers. If everything goes according to plan, then the total of $ 60 million and more is guaranteed.
3. "Alita: Battle Angel"
Week at the box office: 3
Added: $ 7 million
Total box office: $ 72.2 million
Sank / Rise: -1 (-43.3%)
The action blockbuster by Robert Rodriguez quickly became boring for the audience, and with the release of Captain Marvel, the film adaptation of the manga will suffer even greater losses. Outside the United States, the situation for "Alita" does not look so bad, and in the world box office it has already crossed the $ 350 million mark, which, as previously stated by the studio 20th Century Fox, will be enough for the film to recoup its production budget.
4. "Lego Movie 2"
Week at the box office: 4
Added: $ 6.6 million
Total box office: $ 91.7 million
Sank / Rise: -1 (-31.7%)
The animation tape does not lose its audience as quickly as Alita, but the prospects for the cartoon are not very bright. Very soon, viewers will forget about the talking constructor, and the film still cannot boast of transcendental results. At the worldwide box office, he mastered $ 152.8 million, which is half the amount raised by the Batman spin-off.
5. "Green Book"
Week at the box office: 16
Added: $ 4.7 million
Total box office: $ 75.9 million
Lowered / Up: +6 (+ 121.4%)
After winning the Best Picture category at the last Oscars, Peter Farrelli's drama attracted new audiences to theaters and once again made it to the top five. With a small budget of $ 23 million by modern standards, Green Book raised more than $ 188 million worldwide.
