Fifty Shades Freed managed to seduce viewers into paying to see it, in the process taking the top spot at the box office with an estimated $38.56 million. The film has made an estimated $135 million worldwide already. Moving on, the other two newcomers did fairly well, with Sony's Peter Rabbit finishing at the #2 spot with a respectable $25 million. On the other hand, Clint Eastwood's The 15:17 To Paris managed to earn $12.56 million, good enough for 3rd. All three films will likely see their receipts drop precipitously as Disney's first box office behemoth rolls into theaters next weekend.
Previous box office champ Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle dropped to 4th place with an estimated $10 million in its 8th weekend of wide release. Sony's cash cow has almost earned $900 million worldwide. Just as impressive, Hugh Jackman's The Greatest Showman, also in its 8th weekend of wide release at the box office, managed the #5 spot with an estimated $6.4 million. The musical has had unbelievable legs at the box office and has earned an estimated $315 million worldwide.
Next weekend will see the release of the first bonafide blockbuster of the year, Disney/Marvel's Black Panther. The film's hype, as well as its pre-ticket sales, are through the roof, and expectations are extremely high for this movie. Every other film will have diminished returns in the wake of Black Panther's massive box office opening.
