Mid-February Box Office

The latest super hero movie from Marvel inhales much of the box office oxygen as it eyes a $185 million over three days and $213 million including President's Day holiday. (A fuzzy animated rabbit hops along in second place, a troupe of cavemen in seventh spot.)

Early Man, the latest feature from Aardman, is on its way to a $5 million opening weekend. Although the picture has received positive reviews, like many stop-motion features, EM is something of an under-performer, debuting in the bottom half of the Box Office Ten. (Chicken Run is Aardman's most successful animated feature, earning $224,834,564 at the global box office in 2000.)
