Daily Box Office Report
Thursday, March 16, 2017




By Daniel Garris

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast was off to a massive start on Thursday night with an estimated $16.3 M from preview screenings that began at 6 PM. That easily represented the largest preview gross ever for a live action adaptation of a Disney animated film, with the previous best being the $4.2 M previews registered by both 2014’s Maleficent and last year’s The Jungle Book. The preview gross for Beauty and the Beast was the 19th largest ever reported for a Friday release and the 23th largest ever for any film. As is normally the case, the Thursday night performance of Beauty and the Beast will be counted towards the film’s opening day gross for Friday.

Warner’s Kong: Skull Island rounded out its first week of release with $3.879 M on Thursday. Kong: Skull Island declined a hefty 16.0 percent from Wednesday, as daily declines in general were sharp yesterday due to Beauty and the Beast entering the marketplace and to the start of NCAA Basketball Tournament. Kong: Skull Island exceeded expectations this week with a seven-day start of $81.275 M. That places the film 5.5 percent ahead of the $77.065 M seven-day start of 2005’s King Kong (which opened on a Wednesday). That lead will continue to shrink as a result of King Kong opening before Christmas.

Fox’s Logan held steady in second place with $2.802 M. Logan was down 11.3 percent from Wednesday and down a very solid 43.3 percent from last Thursday. For the week, Logan grossed $51.720 M, which represented a 55.0 percent decline from the film’s opening week performance. Logan has grossed $166.527 M in two weeks. That currently makes it the highest grossing domestic release of 2017 so far (though Beauty and the Beast will obviously overtake Logan before long).

Universal’s Get Out continued to display tremendous holding power with $2.039 M on Thursday. Get Out was down just 7.7 percent from Wednesday and down 22.2 percent from last Thursday. For the week, Get Out grossed $29.886 M. That was down only 25.5 percent from the previous frame and brings the three-week total for the break-out hit to a very impressive $119.868 M. The current total gross to opening weekend ratio for Get Out stands at 3.59 to 1.

Lionsgate’s The Shack grossed $963 K to remain in fourth. The Shack experienced one of the day’s stronger daily percentage holds, as the film was down just 3.8 percent from Wednesday and down 24.9 percent from last Thursday. For the week, The Shack grossed $14.266 M. The Shack was down 35.8 percent from its opening week performance and has grossed a stronger than expected $36.485 M in two weeks.
