Here's your super-quick "I'm in Disney World" Friday box office update.
Bohemian Rhapsody kicked off November with a bang as it earned a fantastic $18.4 million yesterday. That number does include $3.9 million from Thursday night previews, but nonetheless, the Freddie Mercury biopic has struck a chord with audiences. It will earn right at $50 million for the weekend. Both this film and A Star Is Born prove that the power of a fantastic trailer is everything.
Nutcracker and the Four Realms isn't faring nearly as well, probably because 1) People can see The Nutcracker every year at Christmastime and 2) the movie version isn't much for dancing. Anyway, this will be a real bomb for Disney and Co, though their year has been so strong they won't hurt too much. After $5.6 million on Friday, we're looking at maybe $17 million for the weekend.
Did you know that there is a new Tyler Perry movie this weekend? Nobody's Fool features Tiffany Haddish and it debuted with $4.8 million. Not bad for something that nobody knew was being released! Anyway, let's call it $12 million for the weekend.
