Red Sparrow soars to number two at the box office

Red sparrow monday morning hangover reportWhile the industry patted itself on the back this weekend with the Independent Spirit Awards and The Oscars, a few people went to the movies and enjoyed some quality fare. Two new movies made it to the top two spots in the top three. But, Black Panther continues its run in the number one spot, and we were pretty close to our “Whaddya Got on Tap” projections last Friday. We didn’t give Red Sparrow  much chance, but it did beat Death Wish. Just about everything else stayed the same.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers and get into this morning as we bring you the Monday Morning Hangover Report.

Before we get into handing out mimosas and bloody marys, let’s grab a cocktail and take a look at the box office numbers.

  1. Black Panther – $65 million
  2. Red Sparrow – $17 million (NEW)
  3. Death Wish$13 million (NEW)
  4. Game Night – $10.7 million
  5. Peter Rabbit – $10 million
  6. Annihilation – $5.6 million
  7. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle – $4.5 million
  8. 50 Shades Freed – $3.3 million
  9. The Greatest Showman – $2.8 million
  10. Every Day – $1.5 million

Let’s hand out a few drinks for weekend achievements (mimosas) and lack thereof (bloody mary’s):

Black Panther –  you can just keep giving this movie more and more mimosas and it’ll just keep on coming right at the magic $1 billion mark. How about some love next Oscar season

Death Wish – sigh, why was this movie even made? It serves no purpose and can’t hold a candle to the original

Annihilation – man, it’s a bummer that this film isn’t doing better business.

Game Night – despite lackluster reviews, this movie is making its money back.
