Weekend Box Office Report: 'Peabody' Steals First

Mr. Peabody and Sherman

Neither of this weekend’s new releases took the top spot on the charts, which isn’t entirely surprising, given that most critics were disappointed with the quality of the films. Instead, last week’s new releases took the opportunity to enjoy a second weekend atop the charts.

Last weekend’s Mr. Peabody and Sherman ascended to the top spot this weekend, just beating its companion release, 300: Rise of an Empire, with revenues of $21.1 million and a total of $63.1 million. The aforementioned 300 sequel earned itself another $19.1 million for a cumulative sum of $78.3 million.

Next came the first new release, Need for Speed, which currently sits at $17.8 million. This isn’t quite the $20 million or so that it was expecting, but given the beating it took in critical reviews, this isn’t a huge letdown.

After that came a holdover from two weeks ago, Non-Stop, which earned itself modest revenues of $10.6 million this weekend for a running total of $68.6 million. And finally, Tyler Perry’s The Single Moms Club pulled in the fifth-highest earnings at only $8.3 million.
