Flies to #1 with $45m (dom) and $71m (for)


https://www.boxofficemojo.com/news/?id=4499

With an estimated $45 million, Disney's Dumbo topped the weekend box office though fell short of the studio's $50+ million expectations and well short of what some thought would be a $60+ million debut. While the performance is well ahead of select, recent Disney releases such as Christopher Robin ($24.6m opening), Alice Through the Looking Glass ($26.9m opening) and Pete's Dragon ($21.5m opening), it's well short of films such as Cinderella ($67.9 million opening), which online ticket retailer Fandango.com reported Dumbo was outpacing in advance ticket sales.

Looking ahead, Dumbo did receive an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, which were 53% female and 54% were 25 years of age or older. That said, looking at Disney's other live action reimaginings, the average multiplier is 3.2x, which would suggest Dumbo is on its way to a domestic performance around $145 million. Given the reported $170 million budget, that puts a lot of heavy lifting on the international market.

An A- score suggests the film is well liked by audiences. Shame the, mostly male, film critics hated on a film that is being loved by, mostly female, audience members.
