Weekend Movie Wrap-Up


Well, this was theworst Easter weekend for the box office in nearly 15 years. Total earnings for his weekend were $112-million, the lowest since 2005 according to Variety. It could be because there wasn't a Disney release on the slate leading up to the Marvel’s “Avengers: Endgame” premiere on April 26th.

But even so, “The Curse of La Llorona” scored more points for the horror genre for its debut weekend. The movie bumped “Shazam!” to the second spot after raking in $26-point-five-million, a solid opening that exceeded expectations. Fellow newcomer “Breakthrough” debuted in the third spot, though only by a little more than $11-million.

“Hellboy” saw a big decline of almost 70-percent for its second weekend, going from third to the tenth spot. Meanwhile, “Captain Marvel” was more popular last week, getting promoted to the fourth spot.
