Not yet ready to relinquish its place in the sun, “Bad Boys For Life” added close to another $48.5 million in takings at the weekend. To date, the third installment in the”Bad Boys” saga, directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, has accumulated more than $290.7 million in box office receipts worldwide.

A widely tipped favorite for the Oscars in the wake of its triumphant performance at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards on Sunday, Feb. 2, “1917” by Sam Mendes has continued to make do with second place in the rankings. The historical feature sold $30.6 million of seats at the weekend, bringing its accumulated total of receipts to $249 million.


Robet Downey Jr. has also hung on to third place with “Dolittle”. The Stephen Gaghan comedy added another $25.4 million in sales, which brings its accumulated receipts total since its release to $126.6 million worldwide.


Seventh in the ranking last week, “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” has slid down to 10th place, while “Little Women” has climbed from eighth to fifth position.

In a disappointment for Taika Waititi, “Jojo Rabbit” has entered the ranking in eighth place with a week left to run before the Oscars, for which the satirical film has been nominated in several categories, including the much-coveted Best Picture.

The world box-office top 10 (in millions of dollars):

01. Bad Boys For Life – 48.5

02. 1917 – 30.6

03. Dolittle – 25.4
