‘Fifty Shades Freed’ Debuts on Top of the Box Office

Love was in the air the weekend before Valentine’s Day, as the final instalment of the Fifty Shades trilogy arrived in theatres. Here’s what went down:

Fifty Shades Freed topped the box office this weekend, bringing in an estimated $38 million. While that’s down from Fifty Shades Darker‘s $46 million, it’s not a terrible number at all, especially in the face of atrocious reviews. The film will likely sink quickly,  though, so let us never speak of it again.

As for the rest of the top five, Peter Rabbit had an excellent second place debut, bringing in an estimated $25 million and scoring with families. The 15:17 To Paris landed in third place with a fairly unimpressive $12.6 million. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle fell to fourth place with $9.8 million, while The Great Showman closed things out in fifth place with $6.4 million.

So, to recap, here were our predictions:

1) Fifty Shades Freed – $40 million
2) Peter Rabbit – $25 million
3) The 15:17 To Paris – $15 million
4) Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle – $9 million
5) The Great Showman – $5.5 million

And here’s how the weekend is estimated to turn out:

1) Fifty Shades Freed – $38 million
2) Peter Rabbit – $25 million
3) The 15:17 To Paris – $12.6 million
4) Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle – $9.8 million
5) The Great Showman – $6.4 million

Next weekend sees the release of the guaranteed number one, Black Panther. Be sure to check back on Friday to see our predictions!

If you’re looking for a movie to keep you tied up for a few hours this weekend, you’re in luck. But will the final installment in one of film’s most reviled franchises be able to make a killing? Here’s our prediction:

Fifty Shades Freed is the third and final film in the Fifty Shades series, one that while making money, has been critically panned worldwide. That won’t necessarily matter this weekend, as this entry will likely be the film of choice for those looking for a bit of romance leading up to Valentine’s Day. Fifty Shades Freed will debut in the first spot at the box office, with $40 million, down slightly from last year’s Fifty Shades Darker‘s $46.6 million.
