Monday Morning Box Office Report: Onward Tops Lowest Equivalent Weekend Since 1995

boxofficeonward2

It’s no surprise that the box office suffered significantly over the weekend with the COVID-19 crisis keeping many people at home despite the fact that theatres in the U.S. generally remain open. The total from this weekend’s top 10 was the lowest on record for this time of the year since 1995 — a weekend when Outbreak was at #1, believe it or not. Pixar’s Onward stayed on top with an estimated $10.5 million but the movie took a huge 73% drop from last weekend, making for Pixar’s worst 10 day start ever. Faith-based drama I Still Believe was a close second with $9.5 million, followed immediately by Bloodshot with $9.3 million. Bloodshot also opened in 50 markets globally but could only manage an additional $15.1 million overseas. The Invisible Man fell to fourth while The Hunt opened in fifth with $5.3 million, also a disappointment for the usually profitable Blumhouse. Things are only expected to get worse in the coming weeks with no other major releases planned for at least a month.
