Box Office: ‘Bob Marley: One Love’ Rises Up With $80M Worldwide, ‘Madame Web’ Bombs

  1. Bob Marley: One Love (review)- $27.7M/$45.5M

The filmmakers behind Bob Marley: One Love can get up, stand up and cheer as the reggae biopic earned $27M over the 3-day weekend, $45M from its five-day debut, and $51M  through the Monday holiday. Not only that, but it earned a whopping $14M on Valentine’s Day, breaking records on a date that you might expect to be won be a rom-com. Worldwide, the film has earned $80M. So a pretty good start for the $70M film.

2. Madame Web (review)- $15.1M/$23.3M

Other than Venom, Sony continues to struggle with their Spider-Man spinoff movies. Madame Web opened to a dismal $15M three-day weekend, and just $23M over five days.Over six days, the total hits just $25M, which is about equal to the international tally. This was something I think we all saw coming ever since Dakota Johnson’s disastrous press tour. But even before that, the film just looked cheap and thrown together. We have to wonder if the same thing happens with Kraven the Hunter, will Sony finally give it up?

4. Migration– $3.7M/$114.8M

5.The Chosen: S4 Episodes 4-6– $3.44M/$4.2M

10. Land of Bad– $1.8M
