@RedSoxRedShoes haha you can even find them in some convenience stores… they are that common there.
The U.S. didn’t seem to care that much about returning to the Pacific Rim, but the rest of the world sure did.
Pacific Rim Uprising opened with a pretty modest $28M this weekend to take the top spot at the box office this weekend. Not a problem, however, despite the $150M budget as the film took in $122.5M in the foreign markets for a global haul of $150.5M. Of course this doesn’t mean it has hit profit yet, but it probably will.
Second place went to Black Panther with $16.65M. Domestically it sits now at $630.91M and globally has hit $1.237B globally.
I Can Only Imagine took third place with $13.83M for a new total of $38.31M off of a $7M budget.
Fourth place went to Sherlock Gnomes with $10.6M off of a $59M budget.
Tomb Raider rounded out the top five falling 55.9% to take in $10.43M domestically, which brings it’s U.S. total to $41.74M and a global total of $211.74M off of a $94M budget.
The major releases this week are Ready Player One and Acrimony.
