Daily Box Office Report
Wednesday, March 15, 2017




By Daniel Garris

Warner’s Kong: Skull Island took in $4.619 M on Wednesday to lead the daily box office for a sixth consecutive day. Kong: Skull Island was down 27.9 percent from Tuesday, which did represent one of the day’s larger daily percentage declines. With a stronger than expected six-day start of $77.397 M, Kong: Skull Island is running 8 percent ahead of the $71.820 M six-day start of 2005’s King Kong (which opened on a Wednesday). BoxOfficeReport.com is predicting a second weekend gross of $26.5 M for Kong: Skull Island.

Fox’s Logan placed in second with $3.161 M. Logan was down 21.7 percent from Tuesday and down 44.0 percent from last Wednesday. That represents a very respectable hold, especially since Logan was still playing in IMAX locations last Wednesday. Logan has grossed $163.725 M in 13 days, which now makes it the highest grossing domestic release of 2017 (though Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is obviously expected to overtake Logan before long). We are predicting a third weekend take of $19.0 M for Logan.

Universal’s Get Out continued to display tremendous holding power with a third place take of $2.209 M. Get Out was down 13.5 percent from Tuesday and down a very slim 15.6 percent from last Wednesday. With a 20-day take of $117.829 M, Get Out already has a very impressive total gross to opening weekend ratio of 3.53 to 1. Our prediction for Get Out this weekend is $13.8 M.

Lionsgate’s The Shack claimed fourth place with $1.000 M. The Shack declined 23.4 percent from Tuesday and just 23.0 percent from last Wednesday. The Shack continues to exceed expectations with $35.52 M in 13 days and will hope to continue to hold up as we continue to approach the Easter holiday.

Warner’s The LEGO Batman Movie rounded out Wednesday’s top five with $975 K. The LEGO Batman Movie was up a terrific 80 percent over last Wednesday, as the film has benefited from more schools being off for Spring Break this week. The LEGO Batman Movie is currently the second highest grossing release of 2017 with $161.878 M in 34 days.
