For the first time since early February the top three films at the weekend box office were all new releases and leading the way was Fox’s Bohemian Rhapsody with a $50 million, chart-topping performance, well above expectations. Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms finished at the lower end of industry estimates in second place, followed Paramount’s release of Nobody’s Fool. That said, the weekend isn’t all about new releases as the holdovers had a solid weekend of their own, with A Star is Born, Venom and Smallfoot all dipping less than 27% in what amounts to their fifth and sixth weekends respectively, helping aid a continually healthy 2018 box office performance overall. At the top of the charts, Fox’s Bohemian Rhapsody endured word of a troubled production as the film that was eight years in the making topped the domestic box office with a $50 million debut from 4,000 locations.
