This week’s outlook moves ahead to mid-March with early forecasts for Lionsgate’s next release, plus updated ranges for other upcoming titles.

Arthur the King

Lionsgate

March 15, 2024

Opening Weekend Range: $12M-$17M
Domestic Total Range: $36M-$68M

PROS:

  • This film’s inspirational story could appeal to a variety of audiences, primarily dog-lovers and families who helped make 2022’s Dog a commercial hit. Competition is relatively minimal with only animated and fan-driven franchises providing the most audience crossover through most of spring.
  • Star Mark Wahlberg has had fair success in family-driven box office hits, including the Daddy’s Home franchise and Instant Family. His presence in marketing could be key toward motivating patrons to see the film in theaters.

CONS:

  • As is always a concern with dog-centric films, there will be increased sensitivity surrounding the fate of the star companion when it comes to general audiences and animal lovers. How the story is depicted on screen will be a major variable for word of mouth.
