The Croods 2 climbed the ranks one more time to take first place over the President’s day weekend.
Well. You don’t see that every day. The Croods – A New Age, after three months in release, jumped up the leader board back into the number one spot. It’s doubly baffling as there was a high profile new wide release, Judas and the Black Messiah, and The Croods recently hit home theatrical release. I guess everyone wants a caveman movie as we suffer through this mini ice age.
This Week in Box Office History.
The box office got a nice shot in the arm this weekend. It was up nearly fifty percent over last weekend, even before you factor in the holiday weekend earnings. The extra frame didn’t seem to matter as five films passed the one million dollar mark without counting Monday’s earnings.

Top Three Films.
The Croods – A New Age got some fresh wind in its sails, allowing it to barely top the new arrivals. It’s take of 2 million dollars swells its already impressive domestic haul of 48 million dollars.
Judas and the Black Messiah got betrayed in its first weekend, settling for second place. It opened to just over 2 million dollars in US markets, a decent haul considering it released day-and-date on HBO Max as well.
The Little Things, another HBO Max feature, landed in third place. I also finished north of the 2 million dollar mark.
The next new release to find a spot was Land, which landed in sixth place with just under one million dollars in domestic earnings. Fellow new releases The Mauritanian, Willy’s Wonderland and The World To Come all finished outside the top ten, at 12, 13, and 15 respectively.
