Box Office: Bob Marley ‘One Love’ Jams to Massive $52M Opening, ‘Madame Web’ Wipes Out at $26M

Paramount's Bob Marley: One Love had a massive $50 million domestic opening over the six-day Valentine's Day-Presidents Day period, crushing Madame Web's $26.2 million start, which was a record low for Sony's superhero adventures.

According to Monday's projections, One Love earned $52 million in domestic revenue for the six days, up from $51 million on Sunday. 

That includes $34.1 million for the four-day Presidents Day weekend and a record $14 million for Valentine's Day (rival studios claim the decision to release on Valentine's Day was wise in terms of building momentum). 

The film's weekend opening was comparable to that of musical biopics like Rocketman or Elvis, and it did nearly double the business it was expected to achieve. 

Overseas, One Love generated an amazing $29 million for a global launch costing more than $80 million against a budget of $70 million.

The film debuted at number one in 13 markets and set new opening-day records for a music biopic in the United Kingdom, France, and other territories. In Jamaica, the film had the largest film opening of all time.

Other weekend highlights: Fathom's special theatrical release of The Chosen: Season 4, Episodes 4-6 debuted at No. 5, with an estimated $3.2 million from Friday to Sunday, bringing its domestic total to nearly $20 million.

In another significant milestone, Warner Bros.' Timothée Chalamet-led musical Wonka surpassed the $600 million mark worldwide.
