Daily Box Office Report
Tuesday, March 21, 2017




By Daniel Garris

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast continued its historic start on Tuesday with a first place take of $17.879 M. Beauty and the Beast was up a terrific 32.1 percent over Monday’s performance. It should be noted that daily Tuesday increases in general were even stronger than usual yesterday. Beauty and the Beast registered the eleventh largest Tuesday gross of all-time and the eighth largest non-opening day Tuesday gross ever. In comparison, 2012’s The Hunger Games fell 4.4 percent on its first Tuesday to gross $10.348 M, while last year’s The Jungle Book increased 27.6 percent to take in $8.959 M.

Beauty and the Beast surpassed the $200 M domestic mark yesterday and has grossed a massive $206.161 M in just five days of release. That represents the sixth largest five-day start of all-time (just a hair below the $206.192 M five-day take of last year’s Captain America: Civil War). Beauty and the Beast is currently running 18.7 percent ahead of the $173.708 M five-day start of The Hunger Games and an extremely impressive 72.9 percent ahead of the $119.244 M five-day gross of The Jungle Book. Given its continued strength, Beauty and the Beast appears headed for one of the largest second weekend grosses on record.

Warner’s Kong: Skull Island held in a distant second place with $3.737 M. Kong: Skull Island held up very nicely on Tuesday, as the film was up a huge 66.5 percent over Monday and down 41.6 percent from last Tuesday (when the film was still playing in IMAX locations). Kong: Skull Island continues to exceed expectations with $115.089 M in twelve days. That places the film 6.0 percent ahead of the $108.582 M twelve-day gross of 2005’s King Kong (which opened on a Wednesday), though Kong: Skull Island will soon fall behind the pace of King Kong as a result of King Kong opening before Christmas.

Fox’s Logan remained in third place with $2.406 M. Logan was up a healthy 49.6 percent over last Monday and down 40.4 percent from last Tuesday. Logan has grossed $188.357 M in 19 days, which leaves the film just $11.643 M away from reaching the $200 M domestic milestone. Logan is already the highest grossing of the three Wolverine solo films and is currently running just 2.6 percent behind the $193.343 M 19-day gross of 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Universal’s Get Out continued to display tremendous holding power with a fourth place take of $1.833 M. Get Out increased 41.2 percent over Monday and decreased just 28.3 percent from last Tuesday. With a 26-day total of $136.436 M, Get Out is set to surpass the total gross of fellow Universal break-out Split today (which has a current gross of $136.982 M).

Lionsgate’s The Shack rounded out Tuesday’s top five with $939 K. The Shack was up a strong 61.1 percent over Monday and down 28.1 percent from last Tuesday. The Shack continues to exceed expectations with $44.012 M in 19 days and is likely to continue holding up well between now and the Easter holiday.

BH Tilt’s The Belko Experiment held steady in sixth place with $604 K. The Belko Experiment was up a healthy 58.1 percent over Monday. The Belko Experiment has grossed $5.123 M in five days from a relatively modest 1,341 locations. Compared to previous BH Tilt releases, The Belko Experiment is running 22.5 percent ahead of the $4.183 M five-day start of 2015’s The Green Inferno and 8.8 percent behind the $5.618 M five-day take of last year’s The Darkness.
