Monday Morning Box Office Report: Bad Boys Beat Up on The Gentlemen


Bad Boys for Life continued to breathe life into the seasonally slow January box office in its second weekend, adding another $34 million domestically and bringing its worldwide total to $215 million. The movie is now on track to become the most successful movie in the series and is definitely a pleasant surprise for the franchise-starved Sony Pictures. 1917 was helped by its awards season buzz and remained in second place with $15.8 million while Dolittle held on to third place with $12.5 million. The Robert Downey Jr. family comedy has now earned $91 million worldwide but it reportedly cost in the ball park of $175 million to make. Meanwhile Guy Ritchie’s The Gentlemen debuted in fourth with $11 million, which is decent enough for STX to plan a wider expansion next weekend. Jumanji: The Next Level rounded out the top 5. The weekend’s other new release, The Turning, opened in sixth with a somewhat disappointing $7.3 million and was not particularly well-received by critics and moviegoers alike.
