It’s traditionally very hard for the industry to track family films and Disney’s Muppets Most Wanted which was guesstimated to come in around the high-$20 million mark — and would have if not for Mr. Peabody and Sherman which is also after that family audiences — is looking like $18M to $19M tonight.
Muppets Most Wanted's budget is around $54M. Peabody is gonna pull $11.3M away from it, which is like when The Nut Job was in the marketplace and had a similar problem with Frozen (which no one could have guessed would have played as long as it did). ...
Frozen has now departed the Top Ten, which makes sense because it's now out on little silver disks and available everywhere. But it continues to be a money machine.
