It was another number one finish for Disney’s “Zootopia” as the animated hit crossed $200 million this weekend after just three weeks of release.
The latest cash cow from Disney dropped only 25.9%, taking in an estimated $38 million this weekend, bringing its domestic total to $201.8 million. Additionally, “Zootopia” brought in another $64.8 million internationally, bringing its worldwide total to $591.7 million.
In second place, with an estimated $29 million, we find “The Divergent Series:
Allegiant,” the third and penultimate film in the Divergent franchise. Allegiant’s debut spell trouble for the franchise when compared to the first two releases, both of which opened with over $52 million on the same weekend in 2014 and 2015. Allegiant’s opening marks a 46.8% drop when compared to the $54.6 million Divergent brought in back in 2014.
Allegiant got a jump start internationally when it opened last weekend with $25.2 million, and added another $22 million this weekend from 77 markets, bringing its current international total to $53.4 million.
But back home Lionsgate has to be worried as the YA series is now running on fumes ahead of the release of the franchise finale, Ascendant, in June 2017.
Landing in third place with an estimated $15 million is Sony and Affirm Films’ “Miracles from Heaven.” The film opened on Wednesday and scored an impressive “A+” CinemaScore and has now earned $18.5 million in its first five days.
That’s a pretty decent start, and the studio is hoping as it that strong word of mouth and the upcoming Easter weekend will bring more people in.
