Pixars latest film is definitely feeling the effects of deserted cinemas as it takes only $10.6 Million on its second weekend of release.
This is down nearly 75% from last weeks total and puts the movies total at $60.3 Million.
One small glimer of hope is that Pixar films do tend to have longevity and providing the cinema closures in many US states is lifted in April and the schools might still be closed this movie could make money late in its run.
Many new films have had their release dates moved due to the viral outbreak but this movie still got a release, and maybe coupled with bad reviews and word of mouth the movie enters at number 2 but to only $9.1 Million.
The road ahead does not look good for the movie and the studio may just cut its losses in the coming weeks and put the film on streaming way before expected.
The faith based movie has a good opening weekend and makes its debut at number 3 with $9.1 Million.
Falling to number 4 is the Universal monster movie which takes $5.8 Million over the weekend.
This puts the movies total gross at $64.3 Million after 3 weeks of release and you cant help thinking the movie would be over the $100 million mark in a normal market.
Universal have announced that the movie will be released on streaming for $19.99 this coming Friday so it will be interesting to see what effect this has on the film box office performance, even with all the cinema closures.
Making its debut at number 5 is this Craig Zobel directed movie which takes $5.3 Million over the weekend.
14 weeks on the the Jake Kasdan directed movie is the longest running film on the box office and with $316.7 Million it is also the highest total grossing film this week.
