Kung Fu Panda 3 (7.2) Dreamworks NA 143.5 Million 519.8 Million B

Notes- Ride Along 2 earned enough to merit another sequel. Ride Along 3 coming in 2018.

Kung Fu Panda 4 is confirmed with many of the voice actors already returning.  The release date or year has not been announced.  Kung Fun Panda was 2008, Kung Fu Panda 2- 2011, and Kung Fu Panda 3 2016 so I’d look between 2019-2021 for a 4th installation of the series.


January winner was obviously Dreamworks with Kung Panda 3 proving that with a good brand name, people will come regardless the time of year.

Other winners include

Kevin Hart because he keeps making comedies people want to see.  He will continue to do so for years I am thinking.


Disney didn’t fare well with The Finest Hours despite the film being among the better released this month. (Historical dramas are never big sellers.) Disney had substantial losses with this one.
