Boss Baby drew $49M on its opening weekend and slipped past Beauty and the Beast for the weekend crown.

Boss Baby is one of those movies that didn't draw a lot of good reviews from critics but audiences seem to like it. Mojo is using Home for a comparison.

Home was another March animated release and that one reached $177M. with a $52M opening weekend. So $150M is the target for Boss Baby.

BatB drew $47M and is closing in on $400M. I still think it's going to reach $500M. Hunger Games had $106M left in the tank at this point and BatB is staying well ahead of that film's pace.

Ghost in the Shell bombed. Just $19M for its opening weekend.

Power Rangers dropped off quite a bit to $14.5M. It may struggle to reach $100M now.

Logan is now up to $211M. Will be interesting to see how long the studio leaves it in theaters. It should make it $220M by next weekend and has a shot at $230M.

Kong is now at $147M. It will reach $150M by the end of the week but it has to be a disappointment domestically.

Get Out is up to $156M. It's still doing good weekend business and is now pushing for $170M.

Opening Fridays:

$67,407,340 Furious 7
$45,631,000 Furious 8

I'm a little surprised by that. Thought this has a chance at $400M. With that type of Friday, it's not getting to $300M.

* * * * *

Beauty and the Beast is still heading towards $500M. Still beating Jungle Book most every day, and is up by almost $150M on a movie that made $360M. A good deal of margin there, and no signs of slowing down.

"Only" $100M in the US, but an insane $432.3M overseas.

Worldwide it's a record opening weekend ($532.5M), which is a bit of bullshit since SW7 didn't open in China until January. Looks like a $1B Worldwide movie, which is expected since FF7 did $1.5B.

Fate of the Furious looks like it might get to $300M if its legs hold up. Otherwise, it's probably a $250M domestic film. Still, it's a big hit internationally, so the studio can't be disappointed.

I think Beauty and the Beast hits $500M and goes well into June before it's pulled. Jungle Book, which was released later in the spring than BatB, stayed in theaters well into July, as I recall. I'm sure Disney will leave BatB in theaters as long as there's demand.

Logan appears to be petering out, but is just $4M shy of $225M.

Get Out's legs continue to impress. Eight weekends and it's still doing steady business. At $167.5M now and looks like it can reach $170M without much trouble.

Might be a quiet box office until Guardians of the Galaxy 2 arrives. :)

Mojo has a comp up for Fast and Furious 8, with the sixth film in the franchise.

http://www.boxofficemojo.com/showdowns/chart/?view=daily&id=f8vf6.htm

Not sure if that's the best comp, because F&F6 was a summer release, and a Memorial Day one at that, so that one is beating up F&F8 on the weekdays.

F&F6 had a massive drop from its first Fri-Sun to its second. If F&F8 takes that much of a drop, $300M is out of the question and so is $250M.

So how far F&F8 goes depends on its legs.
