Who Ruled The Weekend? ‘Angry Birds’ Tops Box Office

Angry Birds Movie

After dominating both domestic and worldwide box office for the past two weeks with no major competition, Captain America: Civil War finally has been dethroned. Marvel’s powerhouse film has been the clear box office winner for the past two weeks since its release domestically. This week there has been a few new films release which finally offered some competition.

Sony Pictures’ The Angry Birds Movie took the number one spot. The animated film based on the popular mobile app game won the weekend with $39 million while Captain America: Civil War dropped to the number two spot with $33 million. All’s not lost for the third Captain America film: It now has a total domestic box office of $347 million and with international numbers ensured that it’s the fourth Marvel Cinematic Universe film to gross more than $1 billion. Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising premiered in third place with $21 million. Also premiering this weekend, The Nice Guys in fourth place with $11 million, and The Jungle Book ended up in fifth place with $11 million. So it was a pretty good weekend to be a comedy, an animated film, or Captain America.

On the international side: X-Men: Apocalypse premiered this weekend ahead of next weekend’s big release on more than 20,000 screens worldwide in 75 markets. Fox’s mutant sequel of the “First Class Trilogy´ premiered with $103 million overseas. Next week the film premieres domestically, but will also have some competition with films release as well as Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass. Both should have great numbers next weekend based on numbers of their previous films.

  2. Captain America: Civil War: $33M
  3. Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising: $21M

    Yep, $1.053 billion in 3 weeks ain’t bad at all! It’ll probably close out at close to 1.2 billion when everything is said and done.

    • Joseph Chaisson

      I agree. But what will the final domestic be?

      • Marquis de Sade

        It’ll probably do between $390 & $400 million.

    Slain by Angry Birds? I could have understood Neighbors 2, but this?

    • Joseph Chaisson

      PG family film compared to an R rated film based around douches. Not hard to see Angry Birds beating Neighbors 2

      • Vegas82

        It is when the family film is a poorly executed money grab. Not every PG family film does well, and not every R rated film does poorly. The first Neighbors for instance? It did $10 mil more than what Angry Turds did this past weekend in its opening.

  • Maximillian Pegasus

    Why put out Neighbors 2 and Nice Guys the same week? Went to see them both, great films, shame both made less than Angry Birds.

  • Maximillian Pegasus

    Zootopia is on the top10 box office for three months, did it pass the $1bil mark yet?

    • Vegas82

      Still needs another $19 million or so.
