Elsewhere, Universal's Fifty Shades Freed topped $250M overseas as it approaches $350M worldwide. Filling out the top five were Game Night at $10.7 million and Peter Rabbit with $10 million.

To recall, in 2016, the company made a decision to officially discontinue the 11-inch MacBook Air.

According to a new report by International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Wearable Device Tracker, Apple has become the leader in the global wearables market, shipping eight million units in the fourth quarter of 2017. Currently, the $999 base price of the MacBook Air includes a 1.8GHz dual-core i5 processor, 128GB of storage, and the aforementioned 8GB of RAM.

A pair of new investor notes on Apple have been shared by famous analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities.

Kuo says that KGI is "positive" on shipments of AirPods and predicts the refreshed model will come in the second half of the year, driving strong year over year growth.
