Box Office Results - 'Dumbo', 'Unplanned' and 'The Beach Bum'
Tim Burton, who has seemingly sold his soul to Disney, comes back with the live-action re-imagining of the Disney classic, Dumbo. Unplanned surprised and The Beach Bum bombed hard. Let’s break down the numbers.
Box Office: $46 million
Dumbo, which boasts a steep budget of $170 million, was only able to muster $46 million for the weekend. It’s not a bomb, but it’s also going to have to rely on decent legs to become a success. Audiences and critics were also split on the picture, but without too much in the way of family films in cinemas currently, it should hold up at least decently. I predict that Dumbo finds its way to around $120 million domestically by the time it leaves theaters and will have to rely on overseas audiences to pull it across the finish line.
Box Office: $6.4 million
The anti-abortion film came out of nowhere and grossed $6.4 million, and judging by the small budget of $6 million and the likely minimal marketing campaign, this should be a modest hit. Look for Unplanned to make it to around $18 million by the time it wraps up its domestic run.
The Beach Bum (Neon)
Box Office: $1.8 Million
The weed-fueled indie starring Matthew McConaughey and directed by Harmony Korine burned up on entry, though I don’t think anyone ever thought this would be a hit and were more banking on it being a cult-hit further down the line. The picture grossed only $1.8 million for the weekend, and with mixed audience and critic reviews, it will likely be gone in a few weeks. Look for The Beach Bum to peter out around $4.5 million by the time it leaves theaters.
The Top 10
Us held decently in its second weekend, though it will not have the staying power of Get Out, it will still be just fine due to it’s MASSIVE opening last weekend. Jordan Peele’s second film grossed an additional $33.2 million this weekend for a running total of $128 million. Captain Marvel enjoyed its lowest drop yet, only losing 40% of its audience from last week. The film grossed $20.7 million for a new total of $354 million. Five Feet Apart had another minimal drop, grossing $6.2 million and now has a healthy $36 million to work with.
