Guess it’s that time of year when the kids are looking for cuddly snow monsters at the Box Office, as Abominable was able to take the #1 spot with $20.8 million. The animated feature is from Dreamworks Animation and it went on to earn $11 million overseas, bringing it’s Worldwide pull in at $31 million. While that looks good at the moment, it has a long way to go to reach the $75 million budget.
Last weeks winner Downton Abbey came in at 2nd place with $14.5 million and now sits at a total of over $107 million, pretty fantastic for this little British film. The only other newcomer this weekend was the Renee Zewellger-starring biopic, Judy. The movie premiered with $3 million, which isn’t too bad for a film that probably only cost $10 million at most. The rest of the Top Ten are below.
4.IT: Chapter Two$10,400,000
6.Rambo: Last Blood$8,575,000
9.The Lion King (2019)$1,603,000
10.Angel Has Fallen$1,535,000
Next week, Joaquin Phoenix becomes the Clown Prince of Crime in Joker. Expect this Top Ten to take on a completely different look. I can’t wait to see how well the movie does after all its high praise. Find out what happens with our descent into madness on the next edition of Weekend Roundup!
