Box Office: Jennifer Lopez’s “Marry Me” Drops 66% After Valentine’s Rush, to Lowest Numbers


The big Valentine’s Day rush was great for Jennifer Lopez’s “Marry Me.” The rom com went up to $3 million on Monday.

But the fall off yesterday was an ouch.

“Marry Me” dropped 66% on Tuesday, to just a tad over $1 million. That’s less than it made on any of the preceding three day weekend.

Now “Marry Me” has $12 million total. Luckily, it’s low budget enough that it might not hurt so bad. But the rest of the story has not been told.

We can watch “Marry Me” on Peacock, by the way. And why not? The good news is that the title track of the album is number 5 on iTunes, and the album is number 12. It ain’t over til it’s over!
