Box Office Report: Maleficent 2 Is Disney's Worst Opening Of 2019

The latest box office numbers have arrived, and Disney's Maleficent sequel, Mistress of Evil, was a disappointment. Entertainment Weekly reports that the film made an estimated $36 million in the Friday-Sunday period in the US and Canada, which is below the $40 million it was predicted to make.

Additionally, that's just over half of the $69.4 million that the first Maleficent movie made over its first weekend back in 2014.

At $36 million, Mistress of Evil had the lowest opening weekend for for any Disney movie so far in 2019. The film pulled in a further $117 million from overseas markets over the weekend to push its total to $153 million. Still, the movie had a budget of $185 million (before marketing), so this shows "audiences weren't invested in a sequel," EW said.

Mistress of Evil has a very good A rating on Cinema Score, which is a measurement of audience scores. The movie stars Elle Fanning and Angelina Jolie. It was directed by Joachim Ronning, who previously made Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

Mistress of Evil did well enough to unseat Joker from the No. 1 position its held since it debuted on October 4. The Todd Phillips/Joaquin Phoenix movie made $29.2 million at the box office in the US/Canada this weekend. The movie has made more than $730 million globally so far, which makes it a huge success given it was made on a $55 million budget.

Another new movie that premiered this weekend was Zombieland 2: Double Tap. It earned $26.7 million in the domestic market, which is ahead of the $24.7 million that the first movie made over its opening weekend in 2009 (not adjusted for inflation).

October 18-20 US/Canada Box Office:

  1. Maleficent: Mistress of Evil -- $36 million
  2. Joker -- $29.2 million
  3. Zombieland 2: Double Tap -- $26.7 million
  4. The Addams Family -- $16 million
  5. Gemini Man -- $8.5 million
  6. Abominable -- $3.5 million
  7. Downton Abbey --$3 million
  8. Judy -- $2.06 million
  9. Hustlers -- $2.05 million
  10. It Chapter Two -- $1.5 million
