'Kung Fu Panda 3' Remains in First on Tuesday with $1.47M; 'Hail, Caesar!' Claims Second with $1.08MFebruary 10, 2016 01:15 PM

by Daniel Garris

Kung Fu Panda 3 grossed $1.47 million on Tuesday to lead the daily box office for a twelfth straight day. The 3D computer animated sequel from Fox and DreamWorks Animation declined 5 percent from Monday and 36 percent from last Tuesday. Kung Fu Panda 3 has grossed $72.32 million in twelve days. The film is currently running 23 percent behind the $93.98 million twelve-day take of last year's Hotel Transylvania 2. With no new family films entering the marketplace this coming weekend, Kung Fu Panda 3 is likely to hold up very well over the Presidents Day holiday frame.

Universal's Hail, Caesar! held steady in second place with $1.08 million. The Coen Brothers directed film featuring Josh Brolin and George Clooney was up a very solid 22 percent over Monday's performance. Hail, Caesar! has grossed $13.33 million in five days. That is in line with expectations and places the film 6.5 percent behind the $14.25 million five-day start of 2008's Leatherheads.

Fox's The Revenant took in $0.818 million to remain in third. The Alejandro González Iñárritu directed western starring Leonardo DiCaprio was up 18 percent from Monday and down 32 percent from last Tuesday. The Revenant has grossed an impressive $151.05 million after 33 days of wide release (and an additional two weeks of platform release).

Disney's Star Wars: The Force Awakens continued to claim fourth place with $0.708 million. The seventh chapter of the Star Wars franchise was up a slim 4 percent over Monday and down just 24 percent from last Thursday. The Force Awakens has grossed $907.43 million in 54 days, as the film continues to pad its total as the highest grossing domestic film of all-time.

Fellow Disney release The Finest Hours rounded out the day's unchanged top five with $0.686 million. The 3D action drama starring Chris Pine was up a healthy 46 percent over Monday and down 39 percent from last Tuesday. The Finest Hours has grossed a lackluster $19.65 million in twelve days of release.

Lionsgate's The Choice followed closely behind in sixth with $0.660 million. The Nicholas Sparks adaptation starring Benjamin Walker and Teresa Palmer was up a strong 54 percent over Monday. Despite yesterday's hold, The Choice has grossed a softer than expected $7.14 million in five days. That places the film 38 percent behind the $11.58 million five-day take of 2014's The Best of Me.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies placed in seventh with $0.507 million. The horror romance hybrid from Sony and Screen Gems increased 18 percent over Monday. Sony's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has grossed a disappointing $6.26 million in five days. The film is currently running a very underwhelming 69 percent behind the $20.24 million five-day start of 2012's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.
