Bong Joon Ho’s Parasite is now scoring big box office rewards following its winning the Best Picture Oscar last week. The darkly comedic South Korean thriller collected $5.5 million over the weekend, an exceptional 234% increase in ticket sales and the biggest post-Oscar boost for a best picture winner in the past decade.

In the week since the awards, the film has brought in $8.8 million – pushing its domestic total to $44 million in the United States which is an almost unheard of result for a foreign language film. The film took in a further $12.7 million overseas which has pushed the movie past the $200 million mark worldwide.

Meanwhile Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog continues to surpass expectations, the film racing to a $58 million three-day and a likely $70 million four-day haul for the holiday weekend in the U.S. alone. That makes it the best opening weekend ever for a video game adaptation.

The disappointing opening of Birds Of Prey last weekend has been softened in its second time out. The good critical and audience reviews are paying off, the film dropping a decent 46% with a global haul of $142.9 million so far.

The box-office is also proving strong for quality movies. Greta Gerwig’s $40 million Little Women adaptation is now closing in on the $200 million global haul mark, Sam Mendes’ 1917 is powering to $322 million worldwide,

OBlumhouse’s Fantasy Island reinvention which garnered $21.6 million worldwide for the three-day which is below expectations. Costing just $7 million to make, it’ll still making a nice profit.
