Weekend Box Office Sacked By Super Bowl


The Super Bowl sacked the domestic box office this weekend as revenue fell to historic lows due to the weekend-long frenzy over Sunday’s showdown between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers in Las Vegas, and an ongoing winter slowdown in major Hollywood studio titles.

Matthew Vaughn‘s big budget bust, Argylle, placed No. 1 over Super Bowl weekend with a meek $6.5 million, likewise one of the lowest grosses for the frame after tumbling 63 percent from its opening a weekend ago. The film’s domestic total is $28.1 million, according to Apple Original Films and distribution partner Universal.

Focus Features’ horror-comedy Lisa Frankenstein opened in second place with $3.8 million. Focus opted to launch the specialty pic nationwide, versus a platform release, in hopes of serving as counterprogramming for females not too caught up in Super Bowl mania. 

The top 12 movies at the weekend box office are as follows:
