Another weekend done, means another box office is in the bag.
To nobody’s surprise Dumbo came out on top this weekend bringing in around $45 Million dollars, with Us and Captain Marvel trailing behind by quite a lot. However, that was to expected. If you listened to last Friday’s podcast, then you’ll know that this is exactly what was predicted.
However, this weekend did bring with it one big shock. Unplanned, a film that flew compleetly under my radar, made it into the number 4 box office spot. This is extreamly shocking, and was ironicly unplanned, due to the lack of hype around this movie – or so I thought.
I had never seen a trailer for Unplanned, never heard of it, didn’t know it was coming out. Yet, despite my lack of knowledge it struck a cord with its targeted audience and they came out in droves to support it. The film managed to making just over $6 Million on a reported budget of the same amount. The film was out for only its first weekend and already made its money back.
Check out the full box office breakdown of the top five spots below!
- No 1. Dumbo – $45,000,000 in its first weekend of release.
