Leads Newcomers
Kung Fu Panda 3 topped Super Bowl weekend, finishing #1 for a second weekend in a row while the weekend's three newcomers didn't exactly inspire upon release. The Coens' Hail, Caesar! performed as expected, though that isn't saying much, while The Choice ended up topping Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which couldn't even reach $6 million. Meanwhile, the big winner of the weekend is Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which crossed $900 million domestically and became only the third film to ever...

SATURDAY MORNING UPDATE: Hail, Caesar! leads the newcomers with an estimated $4.3 million on Friday as it's heading toward a weekend around $11.5 million. However, a "C-" CinemaScore doesn't bode well for its future prospects. The second best newcomer this weekend isn't Sony's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, instead its the Nicholas Sparks adaptation The Choice, which brought in an estimated $2.48 million on Friday. As for Pride and Zombies, it brought in a mere $2 million on... (Box Office Mojo - Top Stories 04-Feb-16)'Kung Fu Panda 3' #1; Holdovers Make Up for Money Lost in the Snow
Kung Fu Panda 3 reigns atop the weekend box office, bringing in more than enough to become the largest January animated opening of all-time. Meanwhile, fellow newcomers The Finest Hours, Fifty Shades of Black and Jane Got a Gun didn't fair so well as holdovers from last weekend make up for dollars lost due to last weekend's snowstorm. Not a single film in the top ten dropped more than 34% and the overall top twelve was up nearly 25% compared to last weekend, which is also a 46% improvement...

Saturday Update: Friday estimates are in and Kung Fu Panda 3 is off to a soft start with an estimated $10.5 million to go along with an "A" CinemaScore. Rival studios are predicting a three-day weekend anywhere from $37.6-41 million, well below Mojo predictions, but within the industry expected range. For the sake of comparison, the original Hotel Transylvania kicked off its opening with $10.9 million and went on to bring in $42.5 million for its opening while Over the Hedge start...

With a blizzard blanketing the East Coast, the weekend's box office was down 29.8% compared to last year. How much of that percentage should be attributed to the snowstorm and how much is due to the fact American Sniper was tearing up the box office last year is difficult to decipher. In all, the snow's effect was certainly noticeable when looking at the weekend's top two recent holdovers as The Revenant scored the top spot despite coming up a bit short of expectations while Ride Along 2 su...
