Wonka Leaps to the Top


Wonka enjoyed a healthy start at the domestic box office, earning $39 million from 4,203 theaters, per Deadline. The musical comedy held strong throughout the weekend, dipping just 3% on Saturday for an impressive $14M, following $14.4M on Thursday/Friday. Worldwide, the pic starring Timothee Chalamet has accrued $151.4M, including $8.7M from Imax.

With few obstacles throughout the Christmas season, Wonka should enjoy a nice run into January and easily surpass Paul King’s other family adventures—the Paddington films—at the worldwide box office.

Otherwise, the box office was relatively quiet, save for a handful of Indie flicks raking in some cash. Searchlight Pictures’ Poor Things landed on the Top 10 after expanding to 82 theaters and has so far grossed $2.2M after two weeks. American Fiction, meanwhile, earned $227K from seven theaters, while A24’s The Zone of Interest managed $124.8K from four theaters in New York and Los Angeles.

Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes slipped past the $300M mark at the global box office, though it remains a great deal behind the original Hunger Games franchise. The lowest-grossing entry of that series, Mockingjay – Part 2, hauled in $646M globally, while the highest-grossing chapter, Catching Fire, hauled in a massive $864M.
