Oscar Victory gives ‘Green Book’ a Box Office Bump

Universal brought the film back to more than 2,600 screens as it was also opened in China

Fresh from the three Oscar wins, including Best Picture, Universal’s “Green Book” saw a big bump at the cash register four months after its release.

Universal has expanded DreamWorks / Participant Media production this week to 2.641 screens, near the largest number in its theater version. The result was a total of $ 4.5 million, which was only defeated by its $ 5.5 million during the opening weekend and the $ 5.4 million it earned on the weekend after the Oscar nominations.

Created on a budget of $ 23 million, “Green Book” had a disappointing start on Thanksgiving weekend in the case of films like “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” and “Creed II.” But with an A + from CinemaScore polls, the film steadily in winter, never more than $ 1 million in one weekend. The domestic total of the film is now just under $ 76 million.

“Green Book” was also opened in China, where the interest in Hollywood import led to a strong box office of $ 17.1 million. Although it was not the weekend’s top movie in that market – “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World” almost doubled that total by $ 33.4 million – “Green Book” now has the second highest opening of a Best Picture winner in China he is only behind “Titanic”. Amblin and Lionsgate arrange the distribution of the film abroad, while the global total now reaches $ 188 million.

“Green Book” was not the only film that had an Oscar shock. Best winner of the animated feature “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” was reissued in 2,404 screens in the interior and raised $ 2.1 million in its 12th weekend. The Oscar winner is known as the largest domestic edition of Sony Animation with $ 187.3 million.
