Nevertheless, Fifty Shades persisted, and with the advent of its conclusion (sorry, climax), Fifty Shades Freed, in theaters over the weekend, the unlikely franchise has now crossed the worldwide $1 billion mark.

Universal Pictures unleashed the third and final chapter of the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy into cinemas around the globe this weekend, with the Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan-headlined erotic drama Fifty Shades Freed whipping up a $137 million opening worldwide.

Glue and bags were used to keep everything in place during scenes in "Fifty Shades Freed". To date, its global total stands at $136.9 million, which is already past its break even point. This opening fell a bit short of 2017's Fifty Shades Darker, which brought in $46.6 million. The film only grossed $6M across 2,373 locations, but that was enough to raise the film's two-month total to just over $146M domestically.

After three years of Valentine's Day punishment, the "Fifty Shades" franchise has finally come to an end. Of course, the irony being that Johnson plays the less sexually experienced Anastasia Grey, née Steele.

"Peter Rabbit", an animated-live action hybrid that cost Sony Pictures about $50 million to make, after accounting for government production incentives, took in $25 million in the United States and Canada, according to comScore, which compiles box office data.

Basri added that the Daesh's leader had sustained injuries in "air raids against" the group's "strongholds in Iraq". This is likely the location of al-Baghdadi, according to US intelligence officials.

James Corden voices the iconic rabbit created by author Beatrix Potter. An impressive theatrical run saw this film also only drop 16.8% and brought in $6.4 million.

Starring Hugh Jackman as the colorful P.T. Barnum who founded the Barnum & Bailey circus in the 1800s, it's earned $146.5 million domestically and $314.2 million globally.

The 15:17, placing third, now has a 20 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes, the worst of Eastwood's career. And a lot of them, some 59 percent, were older women (that, is, older than 25). The film stars Stone, Sadler, and Skarlatos as themselves along with Judy Greer and Jenna Fischer. The finale of the dystopian trilogy has taken in $49 million (RM193.1 million) in 17 days. Fifty Shades Freed no doubt made life hard for the movie in Europe, a stronghold for Eastwood's films.

"The Greatest Showman", from FOX, managed to hang onto the top-five for another weekend.
