“Weekend Box Office Report: April 14-16”

The Fate of the Furious $103M
It’s the second highest opening in the franchise’s history. Such a lucrative series, when your second highest opening is north of $100M, you’re doing something right. F. Gary Gray fit this series like a glove, delivering massive action set pieces. The worldwide box office was around $534M, I know it’s a little far off, but is there going to be more films after Fast 10? A Hobb’s spin off? Maybe a Tej and Roman buddy cop movie? The possibilities are endless. When you make this kind of money, they’ll want to do whatever it takes to keep it going. 

Fast 8 full review:


Boss Baby $16M

It’s truly a brilliant move by the studio. They released Boss Baby at the perfect time. There’s no animated family film on the horizon for awhile. Even if it’s decent, it’s the only thing out. This week there’s an animated film called Ozzy being released, I haven’t seen any marketing for it, so Boss Baby will probably still get the nod over that. June 2nd Captain Underpants is being released, until then, Boss Baby will hover in the top ten. 

Beauty and the Beast $13M

A historic run for the live action adaptation. We’ve been talking at length about the success of the film. It’s incredible, infinitely re watchable, and brilliantly acted. So, what’s next? Would Disney dare make a sequel? Probably not, but I’m sure it’s at least come up. Would there be outrage and backlash towards a sequel? Of course, but you’d all go see it, as would I.

Smurfs: The Lost Village $6.5M

Safe to say that we’ve seen the last of the Smurfs. This movie bombed hard, and there’s no going back. The next one will go straight to bluray. 

Going in Style $6.1M

It’s a pretty decent run for a film hardly anyone knew about. Going in Style made about $25M in two weeks. There isn’t much more to except.
