Monday Morning Box Office Report: Hidden Figures Blasts Off, Live By Night Bumped Off


Although Hidden Figures did end up dethroning Rogue One by a narrow margin last weekend, this time around it wasn’t particularly close as the historical drama stayed on top of the box office for the second week in a row with an estimated $20.5 million. La La Land shot up to second place after its Golden Globes win, earning $14.5 million, followed by Sing with $13.8 million. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story fell to fourth place, while horror flick The Bye Bye Man was the top grossing new release, opening in fifth. Elsewhere Peter Berg’s Patriots Day came in slightly below expectations, while Sleepless and Monster Trucks were also disappointments (the latter was already expected to lose $115 million for Paramount). Sadly, Ben Affleck’s Live By Night ended up being the biggest disappointment of all, however, finishing outside the top 10 with just $5.4 million despite playing in over 2800 theatres. It looks like this will be his first real misfire as a director.

    Hidden Figures was generic and harmless. The normally dependable Costner just sleepwalks through this one.
