'Kung Fu Panda 3' Passes $70M Mark after Leading Monday with $1.55M; 'Hail, Caesar!' Claims Second with $0.89M, 'The Revenant' Passes $150M After $0.69M Daily TakeFebruary 09, 2016 12:31 PM

Kung Fu Panda 3 took in $1.55 million on Monday to lead the daily box office for an eleventh consecutive day. The 3D computer animated sequel from Fox and DreamWorks Animation was down 68 percent from Super Bowl Sunday and down a very slim 11 percent from last Monday. Kung Fu Panda 3 passed the $70 million mark yesterday and has grossed $70.85 million in eleven days. The film is currently running 23 percent behind the $92.13 million eleven-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! claimed second place with $0.886 million. The Coen Brothers directed film featuring Josh Brolin and George Clooney was down 49 percent from Sunday. Yesterday's hold was a bit concerning going forward, as Hail, Caesar! didn't rebound as well from the Super Bowl as a number of other films aimed adults did on Monday. Hail, Caesar! has grossed $12.24 million in four days. That is in line with expectations and places the film 9 percent behind the $13.42 million four-day start of 2008's Leatherheads.

Fox's The Revenant placed in third with $0.692 million. The Alejandro González Iñárritu directed western starring Leonardo DiCaprio was down just 35 percent from Sunday's deflated performance and down 28 percent from last Monday. The Revenant passed the $150 million mark yesterday and has grossed an impressive $150.24 million after 32 days of wide release (and an additional two weeks of platform release).

Disney's Star Wars: The Force Awakens followed closely behind in fourth place with $0.679 million. The Revenant and The Force Awakens were separated by only $13,861 for the day. The seventh chapter of the Star Wars franchise declined 53 percent from Sunday and just 13 percent from last Monday. The 53-day total for The Force Awakens stands at a record-breaking $906.72 million.

Fellow Disney release The Finest Hours rounded out Monday's top five with $0.469 million. The 3D action drama starring Chris Pine was down 39 percent from Sunday and down 38 percent from last Monday. The Finest Hours has grossed a lackluster $18.96 million in eleven days of release.

Lionsgate's The Choice and Sony's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies continued their soft starts on Monday with respective sixth and seventh place takes of $0.430 million and $0.429 million. The two films were essentially tied yesterday, as they were separated by just $602 for the day. Respective four-day grosses stand at a disappointing $6.48 million for The Choice and at an even more disappointing $5.75 million for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
