Abominable Dominates the Weekend Box Office with $20.8M Debut

Abominable was easily able to take the number one spot at the box office this weekend. The animated family movie took in $20.8 million domestically, which gave it a leg up on the holdover competition from last weekend. Director Jill Culton is the first woman to be credited as the main director and writer of an animated Hollywood studio project and she is definitely celebrating after the box office success over this past weekend.

Andres Muschietti’s IT Chapter Two fell to number four at the Box Office this week after bringing in $10.4 million. While the second installment hasn’t been as big as the first, it has still managed to earn $417 million globally and it will continue to grow.
