- Thor: Ragnarok once again topped the box office, finishing its second weekend with a $56.6 million haul that boosted its North America total to $211.5 million. The film has grossed 438.5 million overseas and $650.1 million worldwide.
- Daddy’s Home 2 edged out Murder on the Orient Express for second place. The comedy sequel opened to $30 million against the classic crime caper’s $28.2 million bow.
- Three Billboards Outside Ebbings, Missouri and Lady Bird were the top stories among platform releases. Three Billboards opened in 4 screens with a $320k haul and market-leading $80k per-screen average. Lady Bird grossed $1.24 million in its second weekend after expanding to 37 locations.
Thor: Ragnarok electrified the box office again this weekend, finishing at No. 1 with $56.6 million and easily beating out two high-profile newcomers.
The latest MCU superhero epic continued to power above the competition on the strength of the Marvel brand and critical raves, dropping just 54% from its opening frame and giving it $211 million in just two weeks.
That’s a better second-weekend performance than any other sequel in the MCU franchise domestically, and it will easily surpass both Doctor Strange ($232 million domestic total) and Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($259 million) by next weekend.
In second place, the Paramount comedy sequel Daddy’s Home 2 brought in an estimated $30 million in its opening frame, significantly lower than the first film’s $38.7 million opening but a triumph considering its abysmal 16% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. That gross far exceeded our prediction of $22 million for the follow-up, which added Mel Gibson and John Lithgow to the cast this go-round.
Luckily for Paramount, the Will Ferrell-Mark Wahlberg boasts an A- Cinemascore, indicating audiences liked the follow-up much better than critics. This bodes well for the film’s long-term performance going into the holiday season.
The performance of Daddy’s Home 2 is in some ways comparable to last weekend’s newcomer A Bad Moms Christmas, another comedy sequel that suffered a sizable opening-weekend drop from its previous installment. That film nevertheless held up very well in its sophomore frame (see below).
Coming in just a hair short of Daddy’s Home 2 in third place was 20th Century Fox’s Murder on the Orient Express, which grossed $28.2 million on the strength of a star-packed cast that includes Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley and Judi Dench.
Orient Express’s middling Rotten Tomatoes score of 58% likely held the film back from achieving a bigger number this weekend, but it performed well enough with adult audiences to serve as an example of successful counter-programming.
In fourth place, A Bad Moms Christmas held up even better than the first film in its sophomore frame, dropping just 31% for an estimated $11.5 million. While it certainly won’t reach the heights of its predecessor, which grossed over $113 million domestically by the end of its run, its performance this weekend suggests there’s still some gas left in the tank.
Among other holdovers, Lionsgate’s horror sequel/reboot Jigsaw finished in fifth with $3.4 million in its third weekend, bringing its domestic cume to an estimated $34.3 million. While that puts it above franchise low point Saw VI ($27.6 million), it’s likely to fall a hair short of Saw 3D, which admittedly benefitted from 3D surcharges in its bloody crawl to $45.7 million domestically.
Meanwhile, Universal’s would-be awards player Thank You for Your Service dropped out of the Top 10 in just its third weekend, finishing the frame with only $895,000.
One of the biggest stories this weekend happened further down the chart in the form of Lady Bird, the massive limited-release success story that continued its hefty performance with a successful sophomore expansion. The Greta Gerwig-directed drama starring Saoirse Ronan grossed over $1.2 million this weekend on just 37 screens, giving it a per-theater average of $33,000 and continuing its momentum as it moves into awards season.
Internationally, Thor: Ragnarok brought in another $75 million this weekend, bringing the film’s global haul to a massive $650 million. That exceeds the lifetime total of both Thor ($449 milllion) and Thor: the Dark World ($644 million) in just three weeks of play. In overseas markets, it’s even tracking 12% ahead of this summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
Also from Disney, the Pixar title Coco grossed another $8.4 million in its third weekend in Mexico, giving it a grand total thus far of $41.4 million. That makes it the second highest-grossing film in the country’s history and the highest-grossing animated film of all time there. Combined with Thor: Ragnarok, the film’s performance pushed Walt Disney Studios over the $3 billion mark worldwide for the year.
