New York (CNN Business)A famous flying elephant is looking to unseat Jordan Peele’s “Us” from the top of the box office this weekend.
“Dumbo,” Disney’s live-action remake of its 1941 animated classic, brought in $2.6 million on its opening night Thursday. According to analysts, the film is expected to debut at $50 million at the box office, which should be enough to make it the No. 1 movie this weekend.
“Us” is projected to bring in around $35 million this weekend — roughly a 50% drop from its opening total.
