YOU DUG IT
By E.C. McMullen Jr.
US
Blumhouse took one hell of a risk - for them - by boosting Jordan Peele's movie budget up to $20 million, but Peele hit a home run his second time at bat. US took #1 with a $70m Box Office take this weekend.

Us

CAPTAIN MARVEL
You are digging this Marvel Superhero Thriller, which slips to #2 after two weeks at #1 in the Box Office with over $320 million in U.S. receipts.

YOU BURIED IT

ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL
James Cameron's latest opus slides to #10 from last week's #9. After 6 weeks at the box office, ALITA is nowhere close to its $170 million dollar budget, with only an $83 million in U.S. BO.

DIG IT UP

GLASS
After 10 weeks at the theaters and an impressive $110 million in ticket sales, GLASS made an impressive - and unexpected - bounce from last week's #32 to this weekend back to #14. This is after the movie lost 37 screens over the week. Such a Dead Cat Bounce while losing screens is a rarity.

Theatrical performance is accrued via BoxOfficeMojo and IMDb.
