Daily Box Office Report
Monday, April 2, 2018




By Daniel Garris

Warner’s Ready Player One took in $5.241 million on Monday to lead the daily box office for a fifth consecutive day. Thanks in part to the Monday after Easter traditionally being a strong day for moviegoing, Ready Player One was down 53.0 percent from Sunday’s performance. In comparison, 2013’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation was also down 53.0 percent on the Monday after Easter to take in $4.547 million. Ready Player One has grossed $58.952 million through five days of release. That is towards the higher end of expectations and places the film 6.1 percent ahead of the $55.556 million five-day start of G.I. Joe: Retaliation.

Lionsgate’s Tyler Perry’s Acrimony placed in second with $1.704 million. That represented a 54.7 percent decline from Sunday. Acrimony continues to perform towards the higher end of expectations with a four-day take of $18.875 million. The film is running 61.3 percent ahead of the $11.701 million four-day haul of Proud Mary earlier this year and 20.9 percent behind the $23.855 million four-day launch of 2013’s Tyler Perry’s Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor.

Disney’s Black Panther claimed third place with $1.635 million. In the process, Black Panther passed the $652.271 million final domestic gross of 2015’s Jurassic World to move into fourth place on the all-time unadjusted domestic list. With a massive 46-day total of $652.559 million, Black Panther is now just $6.805 million away from passing 1997’s Titanic to move into third place on the all-time domestic chart. On Monday, Black Panther was down 47.2 percent from Sunday and down only 10.1 percent from last Monday.

Paramount and MGM’s Sherlock Gnomes followed closely behind in fourth with $1.610 million. The Monday after Easter is typically an especially strong day for family films and that was certainly the case yesterday for Sherlock Gnomes, as the film decreased a slim 1.0 percent from Sunday and increased a healthy 56.9 percent over last Monday. Sherlock Gnomes has grossed a softer than expected $24.432 million in eleven days, but is also displaying strong holding power thus far.

Roadside’s I Can Only Imagine rounded out Monday’s top five with $1.421 million. I Can Only Imagine continues to display very strong holding power, as the film was down 52.1 percent from Sunday and down just 0.1 percent from last Monday. I Can Only Imagine has grossed a far stronger than expected $56.692 million in 18 days, which already gives the film a current total gross to opening weekend ratio of 3.31 to 1.
