Daily Box Office Report
Wednesday, February 28, 2018




By Daniel Garris

Disneyís Black Panther grossed $6.877 M on Wednesday to lead the daily box office for a thirteenth straight day. Black Panther was down 32.6 percent from Tuesday and down 53.2 percent from last Wednesday. Black Panther has grossed a massive $428.792 M through just thirteen days of release. That places the film an impressive 8.3 percent ahead of the $395.813 M thirteen-day take of 2012ís Marvelís The Avengers. Yesterday saw Black Panther pass by 1994ís The Lion King, 2006ís Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest & 2013ís The Hunger Games: Catching Fire to move into 17th place on the all-time domestic list. BoxOfficeReport is predicting a third weekend gross of $70.0 M for Black Panther this weekend, which would represent the second largest third weekend gross of all-time (behind only 2015ís Star Wars: The Force Awakens).

Black Panther grossed an estimated $8.3 M internationally on Wednesday. That brings the filmís international total to $334.6 M and current global haul to a massive $763.4 M. International totals through Tuesday by territory include $43.8 M in the U.K., $38.1 M in South Korea, $20.6 M in Brazil, $18.8 M in Australia, $18.8 M in Mexico, $17.5 M in France, $12.0 M in Germany, $11.3 M in Taiwan and $10.5 M in Indonesia.

In other news from Disney and Marvel, Avengers: Infinity War has just been moved up a week and will now open on April 27. Avengers: Infinity War should have absolutely no problem establishing a new opening weekend record for April (which is currently held by 2015ís Furious 7 with a debut of $147.187 M), especially after the break-out success of Black Panther.

Warner and New Lineís Game Night continued to claim second place with $1.352 M. Game Night declined 28.9 percent from Tuesday, which represented a healthy first-Wednesday daily percentage hold. The six-day start for Game Night stands at $21.563 M, which is in line with expectations and is just behind the $21.775 M six-day take of 2016ís Office Christmas Party. Thanks in part to strong critical reviews and good word of mouth, BoxOfficeReport expects Game Night to hold up nicely this weekend with a second weekend gross of $10.5 M.

Paramountís Annihilation held steady in third with $906 K. Annihilation declined just 25.3 percent from Tuesday, which could mean that the film is going over better with audiences than its C rating on CinemaScore suggests. Annihilation is running in line with expectations with a six-day haul of $14.164 M. That places Annihilation 11.0 percent behind the $15.906 M six-day launch of last yearís Life. Thus far Annihilation has already taken in 55.7 percent of the $25.443 M final gross of director Alex Gardlandís Ex Machina back in 2015. BoxOfficeReport is predicting that Annihilation will gross $5.5 M in its second weekend.

Universalís Fifty Shades Freed and Sonyís Peter Rabbit claimed fourth and fifth place with respective daily grosses of $598 K and $563 K. Through 20 days of release, Fifty Shades Freed is running towards the higher end of expectations with $91.737 M, while Peter Rabbit has grossed a stronger than expected $73.473 M. This weekend, BoxOfficeReport is predicting that Peter Rabbit will take in $9.5 M and that Fifty Shades Freed will gross $3.5 M.
