Box Office Round Up - 3-4-19

Box Office Round Up - 3-4-19

There are a few truly transformative moments in American cinematic history. The final shot at the end of Citizen Kane. The horse head scene in the original Godfather. The Russian roulette in The Deer Hunter. And of course, Tyler Perry in a wig and muumuu. It's moments like that that keep you coming back to theatres and simply transport you to another, more perfect world. 

Unfortunately, every great era must come to an end. Perry announced that the newly premiered A Madea Family Funeral would be the final installment in the Madea franchise, after eleven appearences from the bespectacled character.

Look at the end of the day he's the guy worth over half a billion dollars, and who owns his own studio with full creative control over his career. Hard to argue with that.

Green Book also returns to the top five this week, enjoying the classic Best Picture win bump. Mahershala Ali can do no wrong at this point. His career numbers as a point guard at Saint Mary's notwithstanding.

Next week sees the latest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain Marvel, hit theatres. Check back in to WhoReps as we review all the box office action!
