Box Office Report – The Captain Continues His Billion Dollar March

Captain America: Civil War had a remarkably strong second weekend as the blockbuster continued packing theaters. The movie lost less than 60% of its immense opening weekend sales and is now only days away from crossing the billion dollar mark at the worldwide box-office. The Marvel sequel made an estimated $72.5 million dollars in its second week proving to be a true blockbuster in every sense.

The Jungle Book refused to loosen its grip on second place. Disney’s family adventure film has been a huge success and lost only 27% of its audience in its fifth week of release. The movie managed to add another estimated $17.7 million dollars to its total, while crossing the $300 million dollar mark domestically. It appears that the movie has more than enough fuel to propel itself into the month of June.

Money Monster had a surprisingly strong debut with an estimated $15 million dollar opening. It is far from George Clooney and Julia Roberts’ heyday, but it’s still an impressive figure in a crowded summer market. This has been the best week in years for Roberts, as she has two films in the top five of this weekend’s box-office. It seems that her mini-resurgence has primed her for a role in a tentpole franchise in the near future.

Coming in fourth place was The Darkness with an estimated $5.1 million dollar opening. While this is a lower budgeted movie, it was the only new horror movie available and still didn’t manage to attract a significant crowd. However, due to the strategy of Blumhouse Productions who have a business model of producing horror flicks on micro-budgets, the movie will still be able to turn a profit. Now that is the movie business at work.

Mother’s Day came in fifth place with an estimated $3.2 million dollar pull. The 90’s throwback film’s strategy of distinct counter-programming to movies such as Captain America: Civil War and The Jungle Book has barely paid off. However, expect to see these “Hallmark” style holiday movies continue in the near future.
