My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising close to equaled the total U.S. gross from its predecessor, Nagasaki’s My Hero Academia: Two Heroes, which only earned $5.8 million during its total run in the U.S. This likely had to do with the fact that not many new movies opened this past weekend, but that’s not to say it didn’t have competition. The Manga movie earning $5 million in the U.S. for its wide release opening weekend is still an impressive feat.
Bad Boys for Life held its place as number 5 at the box office this weekend, earning $4.3 million for a total domestic gross of $197.37 million. This makes it the most successful film in the Bad Boys franchise with a world-wide gross of $405.37 million so far. Due to this success, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see another Bad Boys film added to this franchise.
Birds of Prey, which dropped down from number 3 to number 6, earned $4.1 million in the U.S. this weekend for a total of $78.78 million domestically.
Impractical Jokers: The Movie, a feature length extension of the TruTV prank show, widen its limited February 21st release. This weekend it leap frogged up to number 7, earning $3.54 million for a total of $6.61 million in the U.S. The Academy Award winning 1917 dropped from number 6 to number 8, earning $2.67 million. Which adds to its lofty domestic total of $155.87 million.
Brahms: The Boy II dropped from number 4 last weekend, its opening weekend, to number 9 earning $2.63 million for a total of $9.78 million domestically.
Fantasy Island fell to number 10, with $2.33 million earned this weekend for a total of $24 million domestically. This is notably the first time since Jumanji: The Next Level came out 12 weeks ago that it hasn’t been in the box-office’s top 10.
With The Invisible Man being the only new release from a major studio this weekend it is unsurprising that Sonic the Hedgehog and Call of the Wild held onto the top 2 and 3 spots, but next weekend should be a bit more interesting. With Disney Pixar’s Onward, the Jane Austin adaptation Emma (which will have a wide release next weekend, but had a limited release weeks ago), the basketball drama The Way Back starring Ben Affleck, and Kelly Richardt’s western First Cow premiering.
