Box Office Round-Up ~ 3/18/24

In a repeat of last weekend, Kung Fu Panda 4 managed to just barely beat out Dune: Part Two to win the St. Patrick’s Day weekend box office. The DreamWorks Animation sequel cleared the $100 million mark with a sophomore weekend total of $30.1 million. On a similar note, Dune: Part Two cleared $200 million overall, grossing $28.5 million in its third weekend.

Arthur the King the biggest new release of the weekend, taking third place with a somewhat disappointing $7.6 million. And in their mutual second weekend in theaters, Imaginary and Cabrini took fourth and fifth place with a respective $5.5 million and $2.8 million.

Next weekend sees two notable new releases. Sydney Sweeney-led horror title Immaculate could push Imaginary from the top five, while Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire hopes to win the weekend overall. Following that, March goes out like a kaiju with the 3/29 release of Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire.
