As Little Women enters its fifth weekend in theaters, box office returns are remaining steady. Against a budget of $40 million, the film currently sits at $88m domestically, with a worldwide total of about $133m. It's likely to surpass the $100 domestic total in the next couple of weeks if things continue at this rate.
This is a strong showing for a remake, considering it's also a female-centered film with no big special effects. If the film happens to come away with any Oscars (best possibility I think is Adapted Screenplay for director Greta Gerwig), marketing will be able to push that as another draw for viewers. Regardless, it's a triumph for Gerwig, the cast, and the crew, both critically and commercially.
The Academy Awards will be presented on Sunday, February 9.
