The surprise follow-up to J.J. Abrams Cloverfield, 10 Cloverfield Lane, got off to a nice start at the box office in its debut weekend, bringing in $25.2 million to far surpass expectations for the science fiction thriller starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead and a super-creepy John Goodman.
Still though, it wasn't enough to take the top spot away from Disney's record-breaking animated hit Zootopia, which might still be getting a boost from the adult furry community. The PG-rated film, which some have even called a veiled allegory on racial profiling, earned another $50 million this weekend, bringing its domestic total to more than $140 million. Last week, when it knocked Deadpool from the top spot, it set a record for Disney's biggest debut for an animated movie.
One guy who did not have a good weekend at the box office was Sacha Baron Cohen, whose new action-comedy The Brothers Grimsby, is on track to become a flop. Grimsby, which is so explicit they couldn't even show the trailer on late-night TV, brought in only $3.1 million to land in eighth place for the weekend. You'd think giving Donald Trump HIV would yield box office returns, but not this time. Right now, it's arguably the worst bomb of 2016 thus far.
The rest of the top five this weekend were all holdovers. Deadpool was in third place, adding $10.8 million to its $328 million domestic total. London Has Fallen pulled in another $10.6 million, which was good enough for No. 4. Rounding out the top five was the Tina Fey action comedy Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, which earned $4.6 million and has now made $14.5 million total.
