WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World repeats atop the chart with 30MM; that's down 45 percent...which is less of a drop than the prior installment. It will become 2019's third 100MM domestic grosser this week. Tyler Perry's A Madea Family Funeral places with a 27MM debut, which is probably fine, given that the budgets on this series are low. Alita: Battle Angel shows with 7MM on a 43 percent drop; although it won't crack 100MM in North America by a long shot, it's already made 278MM in overseas markets. The LEGO Movie 2 takes the fourth slot with 6.6MM on a 32 percent drop; this one and Alita will likely lose a bunch of screens to Captain Marvel this weekend. Green Book surges on its Oscar win to round out the Top Five with 4.7MM and a 76MM total so far that looks nice against a 23MM budget.
