'10 Cloverfield Lane' Posts Strong $9M Debut, But 'Zootopia' Still Leads w/ $12M; 'Perfect Match' Outdoes 'Young Messiah' & 'Brothers Grimsby'

on March 12, 2016 by BoxOffice Staff

Paramount reports this morning that 10 Cloverfield Lane made a strong debut in second place with $9.0 million on Friday, including Thursday night's $1.8 million haul. That's generally in line with The Visit's $9.2 million opening day last fall and marks a strong start for the Bad Robot release from first-time director Dan Trachtenberg and producer J.J. Abrams thanks to strong early word of mouth. The "spiritual sequel" currently boasts an 87 percent Flixster score on top of its 91 percent Rotten Tomatoes mark, leaving the "B-" CinemaScore as the only indicator of any mixed word of mouth. Based on a mid-teen millions production budget, the film is already a success and will hope to enjoy healthy legs for its genre. BoxOffice projects an opening weekend around $23.3 million.

Meanwhile, Disney's Zootopia held onto first place yesterday with $12.023 million -- impressively off just 38 percent from opening day last week. That gives the animated smash hit an eight-day tall of $104.6 million as it paces 25 percent ahead of Big Hero 6 (which eased 49.5 percent from its first-to-second Friday). Look for a huge sophomore frame of $52 million this weekend, easily landing in first place again.

London Has Fallen slipped 60 percent from opening Friday last week to $3.023 million yesterday, giving it $31.2 million in the domestic bank so far as it heads toward a likely $10.4 million second frame. Deadpool was just behind it with $3.0 million on Friday, send it to $320.3 million domestically as it aims for $10.7 million this weekend.

The Perfect Match exceeded two other new releases this weekend by debuting fifth place yesterday with $1.56 million -- doing so with just 925 theaters. Its opening weekend should net around $4.0 million.

The Young Messiah proved to be front-loaded to Thursday night showings where it earned a strong $475,000, but tallied $1.38 million in all once counting Friday's numbers. It is likely that church-related group sales skewed the abnormally high Thursday night figure. By comparison, Risen earned $4.02 million in its first day including a $430,000 Thursday night showing. Young Messiah should score around $3.3 million this weekend.

Lastly, The Brothers Grimsby is living down to expectations with just a $1.2 million opening day on Friday. That falls below the $1.8 million first day of last year's Unfinished Business despite posting a near-identical Thursday night debut of $240,000 (versus Business' $250,000). Opening weekend looks to be around $3.0 million.
