WEEKEND ROUNDUP: 'Zootopia' Breaks Records To Becoming DisneyAnimation's Largest Opening Weekend Ever


Welcome to WEEKEND ROUNDUP, where we discuss this weekends box office results.  The TOP 3 films for the weekend of March 4-6 were Zootopia, London Has Fallen, and Deadpool.

Let's take a look at this week's box office results:


The biggest stand out this week is definitely the new film from Disney Animation, Zootopia, which crushed it with over $75 million, breaking the record for the studio's largest opening.

It was also nice to see London Has Fallen take the #2 spot on its opening weekend, however, the new Tina Fey film, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, was not nearly as lucky, only managing $7.4 million.



Disney Animation's newest film, Zootopia, dominated the box office, bringing in $75.1 million.  This makes it Disney Animation's largest opening weekend ever, beating out Big Hero 6, which opened with $56.2 million.  Combined with more than twice as much in foreign grosses, Zootopia managed to bring in $233.9 million worldwide.


The sequel to 2013's Olympus Has Fallen hit theaters this weekend, performing as expected with a $21.6 million opening.  Will it have the same success as the first film, or will it be washed away as bigger films come out?


Fox's hit comic book film, Deadpool, has finally been dethroned, dropping down to #3 with $16.7 million.  This puts its domestic total at $311.5 million and its worldwide total at $673.7 million, putting it less than $70 million away from beating The Matrix Reloaded ($742.1 million) to become the highest grossing R-rated film of all time.
