The Boss Baby Is The BIG Boss Of The Box Office This Weekend — Even Taking Down Beauty And The Beast! Wow!
Who saw this coming?!
The Boss Baby has firmly taken the top slot through this weekend's box office totals, marking a big opener for the animated DreamWorks film, and even going so far as to knock Beauty and the Beast out of the top spot at the box office!
Starring Alec Baldwin, The Boss Baby must appeal to moviegoers in some kind of way, because it pulled in an early estimate $15.5 million across North American box offices on Friday alone, with the foundation laid for what forecasters expect will be a full weekend of more than $50 million in ticket sales!
That means it's the most popular movie in America this weekend!
Beauty and the Beast had taken in $13 million on Friday, and was on pace for $48 million through the end of the weekend — not a bad total by any means, but certainly a little short of the unexpected, animated winner of the weekend!
As for other new releases, Paramount's Ghost In The Shell — starring Scarlett Johansson — took in just under $10 million on Thursday and Friday alone, and was on pace for a weekend total right around $20 million.
Not bad… but not The Boss Baby.
