Dumbo’s Opening Weekend Box Office Numbers

Dumbo soared into the theater this weekend but didn’t reach the heights it was expected to as far as opening weekend revenues. The $45M opening after a $17.5M Saturday is far less than other Disney recent openers. It took $170M to make the movie based on a 78-year old Disney classic but is far behind the openings of Beauty and the Beast, Jungle Book, Cinderella, and Maleficent.

The remake stars Colin Ferrell as Holt Farrier.  Farrier is a war veteran and former circus star from Kentucky.  He finds his life significantly different when he returns home from war. Small circus owner, Max Medici, played by Danny DeVito, hires Farrier to care for a newborn elephant which his children befriend. While at first the baby elephant is the laughing stock a circus struggling to get by thanks to his oversized ears, things change when the children learn that this elephant can fly!

Directed by Tim Burton and written by Ehren Kruger, the story is based on a storyline written by Helen Aberson. It is loosely inspired by Walt Disney’s 1941 animated classic of the same name.
