The Plastics Take First Place at the Box Office


Welcome to another weekly installment of Couch Potato, where I go over what went down on the big and small screens so you can be a better-informed viewer.

Even the inclement weather couldn’t keep people from the multiplex as Mean Girls, an adaptation of the Broadway musical, opened at number one with $32 million across the holiday weekend. Meanwhile, The Beekeeper opened to $16.7 million, earning it second place at the multiplex. Wonka rounded out the “Top of the Top 10” this week, adding $8.3 million to its domestic total and impressively surpassing $500 million globally. Unfortunately, Night Swim continues to sink fast, with a 60% drop and only another $4.6 million to its already bleak $19.1 million domestic total.

Over on the Netflix charts, The Equalizer 3 found additional success on the streaming juggernaut debuting to the tune of 14 million views. Impressively, Rebel Moon: Part One – A Child of Fire was only just behind it in its third week on the charts with 11 million views. Leave the World Behind continued its impressive run, rounding out the “Top of the Top 10” with 7 million views in its fifth week on the charts. Notably, Aquaman also debuted on the platform in fifth place, which provides a bit of a silver lining to the mediocre performance the sequel had at the box office.

As far as shows are concerned, it was an excellent week for Harlan Coben as Fool Me Once debuted to the tune of a whopping 238 million hours viewed. Netflix remains no stranger to comedy specials finding success. This week it was Dave Chappelle: The Dreamer had its time in the spotlight by claiming second place on the charts. Finally, You Are What You Eat: A Twin Experiment clearly struck a chord with people’s curiosities as it debuted in third place, rounding out the “Top of the Top 10” with 26 million hours viewed. 

Next week, Origin and I.S.S. are duking it out for your ticket money. It’ll be interesting to see if either can find their way to the top of the charts.  

Stay tuned for that, and until next time, happy viewing!
