In just 3 weeks of release, A Star is Born becomes the highest grossing musical of 2018 (domestic). The film beats out other major musical sellers in 2018 such as Mama Mia: Here We Go Again! and The Greatest Showman which was released in late 2017.
A Star is Born is also the 16th highest grossing movie in 2018 despite being released so late in the year.
Here’s how it compared to Mama Mia: Here We Go Again and The Greatest Showman:
A Star is Born (2018 gross): $132,571,178
The Greatest Showman (2018 gross)*: $125,303,456
Mama Mia: Here We Go Again (2018 gross): $120,634,935
Looks like she’s really snatching the Box Office’s weave
