It’s a good weekend to be Mrs. Grey!
Fifty Shades Freed enjoyed a very satisfying climax at the box office this weekend with the biggest opener of 2018 so far — totaling $38.8 million to come in at #1 in the North American box office, far ahead of competition from other new releases Peter Rabbit and The 15:17 to Paris!!

Congrats to the Fifty Shades cast, crew, and production team!
It’s not just the biggest 2018 opener to date, or the number one movie in America right now, but Fifty Shades also took home $98.1 million worldwide from 57 total markets, and knocked down first place finishes in 54 of those 57 markets.
If you’re curious about the breakdown, the Germans REALLY loved Fifty Shades ($10.8 million), followed by the United Kingdom/Ireland, France, and Italy rounding out the top five biggest draws, all behind the United States and North America.
Looking big picture, all three Fifty Shades movies have thus far combined to take in about $430 million worldwide so far… and only cost a combined $150 million to produce (before marketing). Not a bad profit margin, eh?!
Other new releases just couldn’t match Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan‘s work this weekend.
Peter Rabbit opened to tepid reviews from film critics and took in a middling $25 million across the U.S. this week.
And Clint Eastwood‘s terrorism movie The 15:17 to Paris got HORRIBLE reviews by critics, taking in just $12.6 million on the weekend. Oops!
