The weekend box office results were Mean Girls rule.

Arts and EntertainmentThe weekend box office results were Mean Girls rule.

What is old is new again. It gets renewed by adding songs to it and bringing it to stage and then turning it into a movie that is planned for the new age of streaming, only for it to open at the box office. It's time to move on from The Beekeeper, because theaters are hoping they can carry them through a very scarce January. Mean Girls Rule: King of the Crop.

Mean Girls opened on April 29th, 2004, with a budget of just $17 million and went on to make an impressive $86 million in the summer season. It propelled the careers of two future Oscar nominees in Rachel McAdams andAmanda Seyfried and is considered a genuine classic within the teenage genre. The musical version of Mean Girls, which cost more than twice as much, will make a profit of $32 million through the holiday season. It is right there with other female-led openers on this weekend like Mama, which is $32 million, and Scream, which is $33 million. The Fresh Tomatometer score of 70% was less than the original, but it was still a good show. The Upside, starring Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston, is the only film to open on the second weekend in January to reach $100 million. Three $30 million openers (Taken 3, The Green Hornet, and 2022's Scream) all grossed over 80 million, which should be the worst floor for this one.

Anyone But You ended up in fourth place with $7.1 million over the weekend and an estimated $8.5 million through the holiday. Word-of-mouth is driving the film and it now has a total of $56.7 million. Saving Mr. Banks had revenue of $58.9 million after 24 days, but it was after a week of limited release. It is currently on a $25 million budget and is headed for an 80-90 million finish.

The Book of Clarence earned a respectable 68% on the Tomatometer, but didn't get a lot of attention from the audience. This is a disappointment for a genuine talent, even with a more arcane approach to the subject matter, because it is $3 million more than Samuel's previous film, Certified Fresh The Harder They Fall. In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, Paramount's $50 million The Rhythm Section in 2020, and the $30 million Keanu Reeves sci-fi were all expensive failures in January. The Beekeeper finds its fans, but it doesn't beat Taylor Swift.

The two biggest openings of all time featured him playing second fiddle to a giant shark. The Beekeeper opened with $16.58 million over the three-day weekend, besting the all-Statham Transporter 2's opening of $16.54 million in 2005. The Beekeeper's trailer and concept meshes with audiences in a way that the remakes of Death Race and The Mechanic never did. The Beekeeper hopes to change that, but there is no guarantee that the film will be a $50 million hit. Vin Diesel opened to $20.1 million in January and only finished with $44.8 million. The Beekeeper has $19 million in the bank through Monday, so it is almost two-fifths of the way there. This week, Wonka will be outgrossing Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour. With $8.4 million over the weekend, Wonka is on its way to over $11 million through the holiday and is sitting with $178 million domestic. It had $170 million by day 31 with an $8.5 million fifth weekend, and is still in the lead over A Game of Shadows. The lack of big titles opening for the rest of the month should keep Wonka afloat, and it should get over the finish line. The film will be one of the 10 highest-grossing domestic films of the year, as it became just the ninth to pass a half billion at the global box office. Universal and Illumination's Migration made another $6.2 million and over $8.3 million through Monday. It has reached a total of $87.8 million, which includes numbers like Passengers and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, both of which made over $100 million. It is going to get over the hump as well, but only if it can get over the international number of $190 million. It earned $5.2 million over the weekend and is up to $108 million through Sunday. Unbroken had $107 million after a fourth weekend of $4.2 million and finished with $114 million domestic. The movie may be headed for a range of $120-125 million, but it has done well overseas to cushion its losses. The film is $373 million worldwide, which will keep it from falling into the red like The Color Purple, which fell out of the top 10 this week with $1.9 million. The film is expected to have over $58 million through the holiday, but it is coming up well short of its $90-100 million budget, and even with an international release it could end up losing more than Aquaman. Night Swim, which fell down to $4.6 million, is a million behind Untraceable, which had a $5 million second weekend in 2008. Night Swim finished with $28.6 million, so should finish somewhere in that vicinity. Poor Things lost 170 theaters, but still made $17.69 million, even though it cost more to produce. Searchlight's All of Us Strangers by Andrew Haigh made another $463,000 in 120 theaters to run its total up to $1.62 million. The Zone of Interest will get to $1 million in the next day or two, thanks to the 19 theaters added by A 24. The Iron Claw has a total of $29.1 million, making it A24's sixth highest-grossing domestic release ever. The film made an estimated $4.7 million at the box office through the holiday. Disney's first movie in its streaming lineup, Soul, made $560,000 in 1,350 theaters. The film that has become the highest-grossing Japanese language film ever in the U.S. is Godzilla Minus One. I.S.S. takes off and Origin expands.

The sole wide release next week will be the sci-fi thriller I.S.S., starring Ariana DeBose, John Gallagher Jr., and Chris Messina. Their best opening since Unsane was 3.5 million for Waitress: The Musical. Neon will expand Origin after its brief run in December.
