Mr. Peabody wins weekend

A strong Saturday surge allowed Mr. Peabody & Sherman to pull ahead for the #1 spot at the box office over the weekend.

1. Mr. Peabody & Sherman – $21.2 million ($63.18) – 2 wks (Fox) -34.2%
. . . 3951 screens / $5366 per screen
2. 300: Rise of an Empire – $19.11 ($78.31) – 2 wks (WB) -57.6%
. . . 3490 / $5474
3. Need for Speed – $17.81 – 1 wk (BV)
. . . 3115 / $5717
4. Non-Stop – $10.62 ($68.81) – 3 wks (U) -32.9%
. . . 3183 / $3335
5. The Single Moms Club – $8.3 – 1 wk (LG)
. . . 1896 / $4378
6. The LEGO Movie – $7.71 ($236.93) – 6 wks (WB) -29.4%
. . . 3040 / $2535
7. Son of God – $5.4 ($50.88) – 3 wks (Fox) -48%
. . . 2990 / $1806
8. The Grand Budapest Hotel – $3.64 ($4.78) – 2 wks (FS) +348%
. . . 66 / $55,152
9. Frozen – $2.12 ($396.36) – 17 wks (BV) -28.3%
. . . 1466 / $1444
10. Veronica Mars – $2.02 – 1 wk (WB)
. . . 291 / $6945

Mr. Peabody & Sherman, which only cost a little bit less than Frozen to make, needs strong legs to make its money. A 34% drop is decent for its second week. Need for Speed is getting savaged by critics, so while it may fade quickly, it’s still a win for Aaron Paul (imagine if he was opening a good movie!)

The Single Moms’ Club is the fifteenth film for director Tyler Perry, and it was his lowest opening. His last four films have had a pattern of opening lower than the one before.

Veronica Mars is a victory for Kickstarter. Meanwhile, Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel continues to be a force in limited release.
