Ready Player One Dominates the Holiday Weekend

Ready Player One has taken over the box office this weekend. It was very easy for this film to take the top spot. Both Pacific Rim: Uprising and Tomb Raider dropped out of the top four highest grossing films. Black Panther held on to the third spot with $11 million.

I wasn’t expecting Ready Player One to do so well. After seeing the comments when the first trailer was released and given the fact that the source material talked about a ton of pop culture references, it didn’t seem like the movie could be really good. Well, after watching the movie, I thought it was done pretty well. I still enjoy the book though. Ready Player One is that dystopian future VR movie that could actually happen in this world. The movie grossed an impressive $53 million domestically this weekend while it has earned $128 million internationally. The total for the movie is currently at $181 million worldwide. Ready Player One was also the largest opening for director Steven Spielberg in the past ten years.

Weekend Top Five

5. Pacific Rim: Uprising $9 million

4. I Can Only Imagine $10.7 million

3. Black Panther $11. 2 million

2. Tyler Perry’s Acrimony $17 million

1. Ready Player One $53 million


The comedy Blockers and horror movie The Quiet Place will both debut larger releases this coming weekend. These two movies should place within the top five spots. I could see Ready Player One really doing well over the next few weeks until the Avengers: Infinity War is released.
