Without any major wide releases hitting theaters, the top five films at the box office remained the same as last week, and the animated feature Coco remained on top of the box office once again.
Disney and Pixar’s film about a young boy whose love of music sends him on an epic adventure through the land of the dead easily won the weekend, and dropped a mere 48 percent from last week’s premiere — suggesting that this could be the beginning of a strong run for the critically praised film. The film has already earned nearly $280 million worldwide, and is currently on a pace to beat last year’s Moana, which premiered on the same weekend and went on to earn $248.7 million in U.S. theaters and $643.3 million worldwide.
The rest of the weekend’s top 10 films were all returning movies. Among those films, Justice League continued to underperform and seems destined to finish its run in the bottom half of Warner Bros. Pictures’ superhero cinematic universe, while Thor: Ragnarok continued its impressive run. The latter film will probably pass Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 to become the sixth highest-grossing film worldwide in Marvel Studios’ cinematic universe in the next few weeks.
|#||Title||Weekend||U.S. Total||Worldwide Total|
|5.||Daddy’s Home 2||$7.5M||$82.8M||$116.8M|
|6.||Murder on the Orient Express||$6.7M||$84.7M||$210.9M|
|8.||Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri||$4.5M||$13.6M||$13.6M|
|10.||A Bad Moms Christmas||$3.4M||$64.8M||$97.8M|
Outside of the top 10 films, a pair of limited-release movies also generated some buzz over the weekend.
James Franco’s The Disaster Artist premiered in just 19 theaters, and the positive buzz that had developed around the film translated into a $1.2 million debut from those theaters, for an average of $64,254 per theater. That’s not too shabby for a movie about the making of one of the worst movies ever made.
Meanwhile, Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water had an even more limited release, premiering in just two theaters over the weekend. Those two theaters brought in a crowd, though, and the merman romance film netted $166,800 from those two theaters for a per-theater average of $83,400. That gave the film the biggest per-theater numbers of any film this weekend to go along with all of the positive reviews it received. This could mean good things for the film when it expands into more theaters.
This upcoming week is another slow one for Hollywood as the entire industry seems to be waiting for the debut of Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi on December 15. Margot Robbie’s Tonya Harding biopic I, Tonya kicks off its run in limited release with some Academy Award buzz already surrounding Robbie’s performance, and the comedy Just Getting Started also arrives in theaters with little to no fanfare.
At this point, it’s just the calm before the Last Jedi storm in the movie world.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Frees “crazed fan”
The former Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger has decided not to press charges against the man who drop-kicked him in the back at an event in South Africa.
He made his intention known via a post on Twitter, after the footage of the two-footed lunge on the Hollywood legend at a sporting event in Johannesburg trended so well over the weekend.
“A lot of you have asked, but I’m not pressing charges. I hope this was a wake-up call, and he gets his life on the right track.”
Wayne Price, organiser of the Arnold Classic Africa event, said he believed the incident “was carefully planned by the offender, as he is known to the police for orchestrating similar incidents in the past”.
@ Anttention Fresh,
US Police: Chris Attoh’s Late Wife Was Married To Two Men.
Latest report says that wife to the popular Ghanaian actor, Chris Attoh, Bettie Jenifer who was shot dead on Friday, was married to two men.
Reporting the incident, Greenbelt Police Department confirmed that the deceased; Bettie who was shot dead while leaving her office in Maryland in the United States of America was married to Chris Attoh, following Attoh’s divorce from his first wife, She was also married to 47-year-old Kendrick, who is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence for importing large amounts of cocaine into Baltimore from Texas.
“Bettie was still legally married to 47-year-old Kedrick Jenifer, who is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence for importing large amounts of cocaine into Baltimore from Texas.
Kedrick ran a drug trafficking organization that distributed at least 450kg of cocaine in Baltimore and Woodbridge, Virginia.
“The drug lord and Bettie were not divorced before she went on to marry Chris in a ceremony that happened in October last year. The police says Kedrick filed for a divorce on April 9th this year. Bettie Jenifer then filed for divorce six days later.”
These reasons are however points to note as a lead to the capturing of the perpetrators.
Meanwhile, the police have not named a suspect over her death.
