Well, the box office has gone back to sleep again, and it will be another two weekends before it wakes up again on February 8, when Warner Bros. " The movie of Lego 2: The second part it comes to the form. There are few schools at zero and that does not change until the weekend of Presidents' Day on February 15.
Meanwhile, Universal / BVI / Blumhouse & # 39; s Glbad has the rights to boast No. 1 on its second weekend with $ 16.6M, -59% for a day of $ 71.1M for 10 days. That second table is significantly lower than the $ 25.6M that Division posted, putting Glbad 9% behind the title of 2017 by Sunday in its current cume. Division He finished his domestic career at $ 138.2M. Another great work for Uni this weekend is his production of DreamWorks / Participant. Green Book, that has come to life in the B.O. in its largest recess of 2,430 theaters over the course of its 11-weekend race with $ 5.2 million and an accumulated total approaching $ 50 million. We will deepen in this soon, but Green Book is one of the few nominees for the Oscar for the best film this year that will see sudden increases in the B.O .; The truth is that there are not many. We will get to that soon.
There are two other large entrances in the mix, but they are not making any kind of dent: the photo of Joe Cornish of 20th Century Fox The child that would be king He is watching $ 7.1M for the weekend, which is not a great start for a production that costs $ 59M. That said, critics love it because the movie is from the Attack the block the filmmaker with 86% of Rotten Tomatoes and CinemaScore was not so bad with B +. PostTrak's ratings were 71% in the two best boxes, with 46% recommendations for general audiences. The children were better reaching 83% in the two best boxes with a recommendation of 59%. Those who showed were 58/42 men and 52% under 17 years with 48% under 12 years.
The indie thriller Anne Hathaway-Matthew McConaughey of Aviron Serenity It is nothing but stress for the distributor with a $ 4.2M start, a RT score of 21% and a D + CinemaScore. PostTrak was horrible, with 56% overall positive results and a heinous 34% recommendation. Those who bought tickets were 53/47 men and 53% under 35.
Serenity, directed by Beautiful and dirty things Oscar-nominated Steven Knight follows the captain of a fishing boat (McConaughey) whose ex-wife (Hathaway) finds him on the island of Plymouth, and begs him to save her from her violent new husband (Jason Clarke). The plan? Take him on a fishing trip, throw him to the sharks and leave him for dead. Aviron bought the project for seven figures in the script stage with Hathaway and McConaughey. They wanted to be in business with Knight. There have been some rumors that the proper amount of P & A was not spent on this movie, especially with the stars that promote it. That said, given the critical and audience scores here, the dealer had to know what he had at the end, in such scenarios, no study would yield good money after bad.
STX / Lantern Entertainment & # 39; s The positive is the second place champion for the second consecutive weekend with a third weekend take of $ 11.1M, -26%, for a total accumulated to Sunday of $ 62M. The original release of Weinstein Co. holds up beautifully. Those in the world of acquisitions that projected it always knew that this particular title that remained of the old regime would click on the B.O.
The disadvantage of this year is that when it comes to the nominees for the best movie, only four will see really big increases when the trophies are delivered on February 24. Last year, there were seven. Why is that? Last year there were more films that were opened later in the 2017 calendar or that were released in limited ways. Three of this year's noms opened before November (BlacKkKlansman, a star is born Y Black Panther) and the other, Netflix / Participant Rome It is broadcasting, not reporting gross box office revenues.
