    Frozen II: close to $1.4 billion. Finally got my wife to go and see Frozen II with me today. She laughed. She cried. She agreed with me that it is an excellent movie.

    It wouldn't really surprise me. Rogue One is a better film than TRoS by a country mile.

    By that logic, The Last Jedi having made more than $600 million is an even better movie.

    Yep. You are absolutely right about that, so I have to admit that my logic is flawed there since TLJ was bloody awful. :)

    Sony's got to be happy with that opening weekend for Bad Boys For Life. I'd written off the franchise as being stale and past its prime, but it looks like it still has some life left in it. It's also the first movie in the franchise rated fresh by Rotten Tomatoes.

    Surprised "Dolittle" did that well. It's still gonna lose buckets of money, but at least it will do better than "Cats"!

    I think it may have helped somewhat that they didn't go the usual "sanitize it down to a PG-13" route that happens to many franchises these days.

    With the exception of the first Men in Black, which is the exception that proves the rule, I'm not a Will Smith fan. I bear no ill will to him personally, but I just don't like him on screen. I've never seen the first two Bad Boys movies and don't plan to see the new one either. It just doesn't look like those are for me.

    However, I have to think this worked because Sony brought back the original stars for a new sequel, rather than a reboot. If I were a fan of those two original movies, I would have rushed out to see the third one because it was the first time in a long time that those stars were together again. You're tapping into nostalgia in a way that Charlie's Angels and Men in Black International did not do because they had new casts and no one seemed to ask for that. This one seems to be a case of absence making the heart grow fonder.

    (Of course, that doesn't explain the failure of Terminator Dark Fate, which had Linda Hamilton back on board. But I think that franchise had probably been dinged by one too many bad films in between.)

    How soon does Sony stake out a release date for Bad Boys 4 after this?

    The Rise of Skywalker took a (comparatively) long time to break the $500 million barrier. It seems like that will be its last major milestone.

    Charting With Dan for this week includes a fascinating deep dive into how the situation in China affects the movie business.

    Is there anywhere that collects Box Office data in a more detailed way like lets say by each state?

    Occasionally Deadline will report in the middle of a larger post if a particular movie is strong in a particular region of the country, but not with actual figures broken out, no.

    I don't think individual theaters are allowed to disclose to the public where their grosses are. Every January, my arthouse publishes a list of what the top ten grossing films just at their theater were for the previous calendar year, but they don't actually list what the grosses were.

    When I used to live in the Midwest, my local art house there reported that The Grand Budapest Hotel broke the record for the biggest opening weekend gross they've ever had, beating Brokeback Mountain, but they weren't allowed to say what the gross was.
