'Kung Fu Panda 3' Totals $74.3M in Two Weeks After $1.02M on Thursday; 'Hail, Caesar!' Claims $14.8M in First Week After $0.67M Daily TakeFebruary 12, 2016 01:16 PM

by Daniel Garris

Kung Fu Panda 3 led the daily box office for one last day on Thursday with a daily take of $1.02 million. The 3D computer animated sequel from Fox and DreamWorks Animation was up 10 percent from Wednesday and down just 23 percent from last Thursday. Kung Fu Panda 3 was the week's top film with a weekly haul of $26.21 million. That represented a 45.5 percent decline from the previous frame and brings the film's two-week total to $74.26 million. Kung Fu Panda 3 will obviously fall out of first place today with the launch of fellow Fox release Deadpool; which grossed an estimated $12.7 million from Thursday night shows (that will be counted towards Friday's opening day performance).

Universal's Hail, Caesar! held steady in second place with $0.673 million. The Coen Brothers directed film featuring Josh Brolin and George Clooney was down a sharp 12 percent from Wednesday, as the late night launch of Deadpool clearly took a toll on holdovers aimed at adult moviegoers yesterday. Hail, Caesar! placed in second for the week with a seven-day start of $14.76 million. While Hail, Caesar! has performed in line with expectations so far, the film is also displaying early signs of being relatively front-loaded for a Coen Brothers film.

Disney's Star Wars: The Force Awakens was up one spot from Wednesday to move into third on Thursday with $0.585 million. The seventh chapter of the Star Wars franchise was down 7 percent from Wednesday and down 27 percent from last Thursday. The Force Awakens took fourth place this week with $9.57 million. That was down just 34 percent from the previous week and brings the film's eight-week total to a record breaking $908.64 million.

Fox's The Revenant followed closely behind in fourth with $0.577 million. The Alejandro González Iñárritu directed western starring Leonardo DiCaprio fell 9 percent from Wednesday and 38 percent from last Thursday. The Revenant placed in third this week with $9.66 million. The film was down 43 percent from the previous frame and has grossed an impressive $152.26 million through five weeks of wide release (and an additional two weeks of platform release).

Lionsgate's The Choice and Sony's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies rounded out their disappointing first week performances with respective fifth and seventh place takes of $446,522 and $283,226. The Choice was up a healthy 6 percent over Wednesday, while Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was down a troubling 19 percent. The Choice placed in fifth place this week with a soft $8.01 million, while Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was even softer with a sixth place take of $6.89 million.
