Box Office Rundown 2/17/2020

By Paul Anthony

Welcome to this holiday weekend edition of Box Office Rundown and the first to feature Sonic as the number 1 movie. Now I am sure Sonic will be repeating it’s success next weekend as well. Sonic may have taken the number 1 spot but no one thought it would run away from the pack like it did. Usually when a movie gets delayed it never a good thing but in this case it turned out to be a great thing. Birds of prey came in a at distant number 2. Sonic wasn’t the only film to debut, we had The Photograph and Fantasy Island debut as well as Downhill. I didn’t think much of Downhill or the Photograph but I thought Fantasy Island would do a little better than it did. Sure it came in at number 3 but this year hasn’t been kind so far to horror films which is bad news for Brahms: the Boy 2 because that film has no hype around it. Now this upcoming week we have Harrison Ford’s movie The Call of The Wild on top of The Boy 2, once again we will be having an revolving top ten but here is the current top ten.

  1. Sonic The Hedgehog, 57 million
  2. Birds Of Prey, 17.115 million
  3.  Fantasy Island, 12.4 million
  4.  The Photograph, 12.270 million
  5.  Bad Boys For Life, 11.305 million
  6.  1917, 8.090 million
  7.  Jumanji: The Next Level, 5.7 million
  8.  Parasite, 5.500 million
  9.  Dolittle, 5.050 million
  10.  Downhill, 4.671 Million

Now Sonic was no doubt the winner but here are the losers, Dolittle and The Gentlemen dropped 5 spots with The Gentlemen falling out of the top ten. Now here are my predictions

  1. Sonic The Hedgehog
  2. The Call of the Wild
  3. Birds Of Prey
  4. Brahms: the Boy 2
  5. Fantasy Island
  6. The Photograph
  7.  Bad Boys For Life
  8.  1917
  9.  Jumanji: The Next Level
  10.  Dolittle
