Pixar's Onward won the weekend box office with a $40 million debut. The domestic numbers for the animated movie are in the lower realm of the early estimates, which had it around $45 million. Reasoning behind the muted response is unclear, but there are many people who believe the coronavirus (COVID-19) is to blame. As for the global numbers, those aren't too stellar either. Onward has made $68 million from 47 territories as of this writing, despite getting positive reviews.
Blumhouse's The Invisible Man continues to be a hit at the box office. The horror thriller took the second position this weekend after earning $15.1 million. The movie has earned nearly $100 million globally since hitting theaters last week. Ben Affleck's The Way Back debuted at number three with $8.5 million. Affleck's performance has been praised, though the project as a whole has been receiving mixed reviews.
Sonic the Hedgehog took the fourth spot this weekend after bringing in $7.9 million. The video game movie has been a surprise hit at the box office since it debuted in February.

The movie, which has received mixed reviews, could go on to lose around $50 million when all is said and done.
Emma took the sixth position this weekend after taking in $5 million. The comedy drama is based on Jane Austen's book of the same name and stars Anya Taylor-Joy. Johnny Flynn, Josh O'Connor, Callum Turner, Mia Goth, Miranda Hart, and Bill Nighy star alongside Taylor-Joy. Bad Boys for Life took the seventh spot with $3 million.
