‘Mean Girls’ & ‘Beekeeper’ Duke It Out In Weak Winter Frame – Deadline

In a weekend without any studio wide entries — all due to the strikes– the overall theatrical marketplace is bound to reach some sort of low: Either lower than 2023’s bottom of $51.8M for all movies (Sept. 22-24) or lower than 2022’s floor of $35M (Jan. 28-30). After last weekend saw a 2024 YTD low for 2024 YTD of $67.2M, per Comscore, -11% from a year ago, this weekend will plunge to further depths.

And there’s not a winter storm to blame.

Paramount’s Mean Girls and Amazon MGM Studios’ The Beekeeper are fighting over No. 1 with $6.4M apiece in their third weekends. Beekeeper beat Mean Girls in daily grosses on Monday ($802K), Tuesday ($1.25M) and Thursday ($770K) this past week.

The girls in pink will see a 45% slide from Weekend 2 at 3,544 theaters, for a $59.9M running total. Friday is looking like $1.85M, -43%. The Jason Statham action movie at 3,337 venues, after an estimated third Friday of $1.7M, -29%, will be off from Weekend 2 by 26%, for a running total of $41.2M by Sunday.

The seventh weekend for Warner Bros.’ Wonka is in third with $5.8M at 3,014, -14%, for a running total of $195M. Friday is $1.35M.

Illumination/Universal’s Migration, the animated movie rivals bet against over the holidays, will be up to $101M in its domestic cume through Sunday at the end of Weekend 6. Friday is $1M at 2,962 theaters, for a $4.9M 3-day, -10%, in fourth place.


Fifth belongs to Sony’s sixth weekend of Anyone but You, the Sydney Sweeney-Glen Powell romcom, with a 3-day of $4.8M, -11%, for a running cume by Sunday of $71.1M at 2,885 locations. That total zips past the other notable post-pandemic romantic comedy, Ticket to Paradise, starring Julia Roberts and George Clooney, which finaled at $68.2M in U.S./Canada. Anyone‘s Friday is an estimated $1.5M, -14%.
