What will be the big box office trends in 2024? Superhero movies aren’t expected to dominate as they typically do as a result of the Hollywood labor battles last year and pushed release dates, so which genre or genres will start to fill that vacuum? Based on what we’ve seen thus far in January, it certainly seems like musicals are going to be a thing. In the last couple weeks, Paul King’s Wonka and Blitz Bazawule’s The Color Purple have performed well (the former winning its third box office crown last weekend), and Samantha Jayne and Arturo Perez Jr.’s Mean Girls has now arrived to keep movie-goers tapping their topes.

The new musical made its debut in wide release this past Friday and was the biggest thing in theaters domestically the past three days. Check out the full Top 10 below and join me after for analysis.
