    Re: Box Office - Updated Every Monday

    Just having a look at the year so far, Disney currently have 4 of the top 5 grossing movies of 2017 in the UK, and they STILL have Toy Story 4, Lion King, Frozen 2 and Star Wars to come.

    I for one welcome our mouse-earred overlords

    'Pets 2' and 'Dark Phoenix' Top Weekend Box Office, Though Both



    The weekend's top twelve combined to outperform the same weekend last year by more than 43%, which means the year-to-year gap continues to close, but the weekend's new releases both struggled mightily. Universal and Illumination's The Secret Life of Pets 2 was unable to even deliver half of the opening the first film delivered just a few years ago, while Fox's Dark Phoenix entered the weekend as the worst reviewed film in the X-Men franchise ever and, predictably, delivered the lowest opening weekend of the franchise.

    At the top of the box office is Universal and Illumination's The Secret Life of Pets 2 with an estimated $47.1 million from 4,561 locations (the second widest opening ever only to Avengers: Endgame). The performance is less than half of the original, 2016 film's $104.3 million, which remains a record opening for an original, animated feature. Heading into the weekend expectations weren't exactly meteoric, with the studio hoping for an opening over $50 million, but even that proved an impossible task.

    Looking ahead, Pets 2 received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, while playing to a crowd that was 57% female with 62% of the film's opening crowd being family moviegoers. As for the film's future, it compares to the $48.4 million opening for Hotel Transylvania 2 and the $47.6 million debut for Kung Fu Panda 2, both of which went on to gross over $165 million, albeit neither played in the middle of the summer movie season, which will make the future of this film interesting to watch.

    Internationally, Pets 2 began playing overseas two weeks ago and this weekend added 21 markets including the Netherlands ($1.7m), Vietnam ($1.3m), Italy ($1.1m) and Taiwan ($800k). Overall, the film brought in $16 million this weekend from a total of 30 markets for an international cume that currently stands at $49 million. The film's top market is Russia with just shy of $17 million with openings yet to come in Australia (Jun 20), Germany (Jun 27), Brazil (Jun 27), China (Jul 5), Japan (Jul 26), Korea (Jul 31), France (Jul 31), Spain (Aug 9) and Mexico (Aug 9).

    In second place things don't get any better as Disney's release of Fox's Dark Phoenix could only manage an estimated $33 million debut, making it the first film in the X-Men franchise to fail to deliver a $50+ million opening. In fact, like Pets 2 the film's opening is well off even the studio's modest, $40-50 million expectations and over $30 million shy of the disappointing, $65.7 million opening for X-Men: Apocalypse three years ago.

    The average multiplier for films in the X-Men franchise is 2.5x, which would suggest we're looking at an $82.5 million domestic run for Dark Phoenix, which would make it the first film in the franchise to finish below $100 million domestically. The film received a "B-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, which is a grade below the "A-" score for X-Men: Apocalypse, as audiences seemed to agree with the negative critical reception. The audience was 57% male with 61% of the opening weekend crowd coming in aged 25 years or older.

    Internationally, Dark Phoenix debuted in all but Japan this weekend, bringing in an estimated $107 million, led by a $45.6 million opening in China. Additional openings include South Korea ($5.7m), Mexico ($5.0m), UK ($4.9m), France ($3.8m), Russia ($3.4m), Brazil ($2.9m), Philippines ($2.4m), Taiwan ($2.3m) and India ($2.3m). The film will open in Japan on June 21.

    Disney's Aladdin took third with an estimated $24.5 million, signaling a solid, -43% drop as it enters its third week in release. The film's domestic cume is now over $232 million. Internationally, the film added another $67.6 million this weekend for an overseas cume totaling $372.5 million, pushing Aladdin's global tally just shy of $605 million

    In fourth, Warner's Godzilla: King of the Monsters dropped hard, falling -67.5% for an estimated $15.5 million second weekend. The drop isn't exactly a surprise, though it is a fraction steeper than the large, -67% drop the 2014 original felt, which continues to put a question mark on the film's overall domestic run and whether or not it will be able to go much higher than $100 million. The film's domestic gross currently stands at $78.6 million.

    Internationally, Godzilla added $47.1 million this weekend for an overseas cume that stands at $213.7 million and a global tally topping $292 million. Spain remains the final key market for the film, where it will release on June 21.

    Rounding out the top five is Paramount's Rocketman, which dropped -46% in its second weekend for an estimated $14 million. The film's domestic cume now stands at just over $50 million after ten days in release. Internationally, the film added $13 million from 50 markets for an overseas cume that now totals just over $51 million and a worldwide gross over $101 million.

    In limited release, Amazon Studios began the platform release of their record, $13 million Sundance acquisition, Late Night, debuting the film in four locations this weekend with an estimated $249,654 and a chart-topping $62,414 per theater average. The film will go nationwide in over 1,500 locations next weekend.

    Additionally, A24's The Last Black Man In San Francisco opened in seven theaters in NY, LA and San Francisco and delivered an estimated $230,744 for a per screen average of $32,963. The film will expand into top markets next weekend.

    Other limited releases include CBS Films's Pavarotti, which opened in 19 locations with an estimated $142,500 ($7,500 PTA); Super's This One's for the Ladies opened in one theater with an estimated $16,000; and IFC's Framing John DeLorean brought in an estimated $9,106 from one theater.

    Next weekend will see Sony's release of Men in Black International debut in over 3,800 location; WB will release Shaft in over 2,900 theaters; Focus will debut Jim Jarmusch's The Dead Don't Die in approximately 550 theaters; and the aforementioned Amazon release Late Night will go into wide release.
    I don't think many people are surprised by the rough reviews on Dark Phoenix.

    'Men in Black' & 'Shaft' Become Latest Summer Sequels to Disappoint



    It was another disappointing weekend for a pair of new sequels as both Sony's Men in Black International and WB's Shaft were both unable to reach even the slimmest of studio expectations heading into the weekend. The weekend is down significantly compared to last year when Incredibles 2 bowed with a record-shattering $182.6 million opening and next weekend will turn to Pixar once again, looking to Toy Story 4 to turn the tide.

    Sony's release of Men in Black International debuted with a disappointing $28.5 million from 4,224 locations. By comparison, this is the lowest opening in the franchise by over $20 million as all three of the previous installments opened with over $51 million. The $110 million production joins a slew of recently released sequels to not only under-perform based on pre-weekend expectations, but severely under-performing based on previous films in the franchise. Entering the weekend the film received mostly negative reviews and opening day audiences gave the film a "B" CinemaScore, which is hardly a ringing endorsement. The film played to an opening weekend crowd that was 56% male with 53% of the overall audience coming in aged 25 or older.

    Internationally, Men in Black brought in $73.7 million from 36 markets, giving the film a global debut over $102 million. The studio notes the film is tracking on par with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and 19% behind MIB 3 at current exchange rates for the same group of markets. China led all markets with $26.3 million and a #1 opening followed by Russia ($5.1m), South Korea ($4.9m), Mexico ($3.9m), Japan ($3.5m), UK ($3.4m), Australia ($2.6m) and France ($2.5m). The film opened in approximately 92% of the marketplace with debuts in Belgium (Jun 19), Netherlands (Jun 20) and Italy (Jul 25) remaining.

    Finishing in second is Universal and Illumination's The Secret Life of Pets 2, which dipped -49% to begin its second weekend with an estimated $23.8 million three-day and a domestic gross that now totals just over $92 million after ten days in release. Internationally, the film added another $8.5 million this weekend for a global cume that now totals nearly $155 million.

    Disney's Aladdin held on well as it enters its fourth weekend in release. The latest Disney live-action reimagining dipped just -32% for an estimated $16.7 million three-day, pushing its domestic cume just shy of $264 million. Internationally the film added another $47.5 million this weekend for an overseas cume that now totals over $461 million and a global tally just shy of $725 million.

    Disney's release of Fox's Dark Phoenix cratered in its second weekend, dropping a massive -72.6% for an estimated $9 million three-day and a domestic gross that now tops $51 million. This is the second largest second weekend drop for a film playing in over 3,500 theaters in its second weekend behind only 2015's Fifty Shades of Grey (-73.9%). Additionally, Dark Phoenix earned an estimated $24.2 million in its second weekend of release internationally, raising the overall overseas cume to $152.5 million for a global haul that now tops $204 million.

    Rounding out the top five is Paramount's Rocketman, which dipped -36% as it entered its third week in release with an estimated $8.8 million for a domestic cume that now totals over $66 million. The film also added another $8.5 million internationally for a global cume that now tops $133 million.

    Finishing outside the top five we find WB's release of Shaft, which the studio was expecting to debut somewhere around $15 million, but it could only muster an estimated $8.3 million from 2,952 locations. That said, while critical response was mixed-to-negative, opening day audiences gave the film an "A" CinemaScore, though with an opening this low the film's fate is most likely sealed. Additionally, the film played to a crowd that was 54% female and 84% of the overall audience came in aged 25 years or older.

    Further down the list, in ninth place, is Amazon Studios's Late Night, which expanded into 2,220 locations (+2,216) and delivered an estimated $5.1 million. Amazon acquired the film, which stars Emma Thompson and Mindy Kailing, whom also wrote the screenplay, at this year's Sundance Film Festival for a record $13 million and while this is hardly a great opening, it should have a long life on Amazon's Prime Video platform. Friday's audience gave the film a "B+" CinemaScore.

    Outside the top ten we find Focus's release of Jim Jarmusch's star-studded zombie comedy The Dead Don't Die, which opened in 613 locations with an estimated $2.5 million. Exit polls show 58% of the opening weekend crowd was male and 64% were aged 35 or older.

    In limited release, Roadside's American Woman opened in 117 locations with an estimated $102,825 ($878 PTA); the documentary 5B opened with an estimated $40,000 from 127 theaters ($315 PTA); IFC's Hampstead brought in $24,144 from 12 locations ($2,012 PTA); The Film Arcade's Being Frank brought in $15,409 from three theaters ($5,136 PTA); Janus's re-release of Paris is Burning delivered an estimated $11,000 from one location; and Monument's Our Time opened in one theater with an estimated $3,000.

    Next weekend should see the conclusion of the sequel slump as Disney and Pixar's Toy Story 4 makes way for 4,400+ locations alongside UA Releasing's Child's Play remake, Lionsgate's Anna and Neon's debut of Wild Rose.

    'Toy Story 4' Tops the Weekend Box Office With $118 Million



    Disney and Pixar's Toy Story 4 topped the weekend box office and did so with the franchise's largest opening weekend yet, but even it seems to have been bitten by the summer's sequel slump as it too delivered well below studio and industry expectations. On top of that, UA Releasing's Child's Play finished in second place while also missing forecasted pre-weekend expectations while Lionsgate and Summit's Anna fell just shy of a spot in the top ten.

    With an estimated $118 million, Disney and Pixar's Toy Story 4 topped the weekend box office, though fell well short of the studio's $140+ million expectations, not to mention Mojo's lofty weekend forecast. The performance is, however, the best of the franchise, topping Toy Story 3's $110.3 million opening back in 2010 and fourth largest animated opening ever, which are hardly milestones you can ignore. It's also worth mentioning this is the third largest opening weekend of the year, giving Disney the top four openings of 2019.

    Also in Toy Story 4's favor is some of the best reviews of the franchise to go along with an "A" CinemaScore from opening day audiences. On top of that, the film has a long runaway ahead of it as the next major family film isn't until July 19 and it is yet another Disney picture in The Lion King. It also isn't until the mid-August release of Sony's The Angry Birds Movie 2 that another animated feature hits theaters, giving Toy Story 4 plenty of room to breathe.

    To go along with strong reviews and an "A" CinemaScore, the film played to an opening weekend audience that was 52% female and 45% of the crowd was aged 25 or older. Looking at Pixar's last ten releases, the average multiplier is 3.44x, which would suggest a domestic run for Toy Story 4 over $400 million and looking at the animated studio's past June releases, that multiplier goes up to 3.56x, suggesting a possible domestic run over $420 million.

    Internationally, Toy Story 4 brought in $120 million form 37 markets, representing ~64% of the overall marketplace and a $238 million global launch. The top market was Mexico, where the film opened with an estimated $23.4 million, representing the third highest opening of all-time in the market behind just Avengers: Endgame and Avengers: Infinity War. From there, the UK was the second largest opening with $15 million followed by China ($13.4m), Brazil ($9.6m), Korea ($8.5m), Argentina ($6.9m) and Australia ($6.1m). The film will open in France and Italy next weekend followed by openings in Japan (Jul 12) and Germany (Aug 15).

    UA Releasing's Child's Play delivered a second place finish with an estimated $14 million. Heading into the weekend the film was tracking similarly to Universal and Blumhouse's Ma, which debuted with over $18 million just a few weeks ago, and even the film's Thursday night previews ($1.65 million) suggested it was well on its way to a similar opening. However, it was unable to sustain its momentum and came up shy of the $16-18 million pre-weekend expectations. The film carries a reported budget around $10 million and received a "C+" CinemaScore from opening day crowds.

    Exits show Child's Play played to an audience that was 52% male and 61% were over the age of 25. These demos are important when you consider Ma played to an audience that was 53% female and only 53% were aged 25 or older as we look ahead to next week, which sees Annabelle Comes Home arriving on Wednesday. That film should play to a crowd similar to Ma, leaning a bit younger and playing to a larger female audience, perhaps allowing both to pleasantly coexist for a couple of weekends.

    Landing in third position is Disney's Aladdin with an estimated $12.2 million, dipping just -29.5% as it enters its fifth week in release with a domestic cume just shy of $288 million. Internationally, the film added nearly $33 million this weekend for an overseas cume that now totals $522.6 million and a global tally topping $810 million.

    Sony's Men in Black International is already cratering after a disappointing debut last weekend, dropping -64% in its sophomore frame with an estimated $10.75 million and a domestic cume that now totals just over $52 million after ten days in release. Internationally, the film added just over $30 million for an international cume topping $129 million and a worldwide total just over $182 million.

    Rounding out the top five is Universal and Illumination's The Secret Life of Pets 2, which dipped -58% in the face of Toy Story 4's debut, with an estimated $10.3 million for the weekend. The film's domestic cume now stands at $117.5 million as it enters its third week in release. The film also added another $10.8 million internationally this weekend for an overseas cume that now totals over $77 million and a global tally just shy of $195 million.

    Outside not only the top five, but just missing the top ten, is Lionsgate's release of Summit's Anna. The action thriller from Luc Besson debuted with an estimated $3.5 million. The film received a "B+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, and of the overall audience, 61% were male and 88% were over the age of 25.

    In limited release, Neon's Wild Rose opened in four theaters with an estimated $56,183 ($14,046 PTA); Magnolia's Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am opened in four theaters with an estimated $44,000 ($11,000 PTA); Metrograph re-released A Bigger Splash in one New York location with an estimated $18,000; and IFC's The Quiet One opened in six locations with $10,561 ($1,760 PTA).

    Next weekend gets started on Wednesday with the release of the aforementioned Annabelle Comes Home, debuting in over 3,500 locations and then on Friday Universal will release Danny Boyle's Yesterday into ~2,600 theaters.

    'Spider-Man: Far from Home' Delivers Record $185 Million Opening



    It has been a while since we saw a sequel deliver on expectations, but, this weekend, Sony's Spider-Man: Far from Home delivered the largest six-day opening ever for a Tuesday release, leading the weekend box office and helping the top 12 outperform the same weekend last year for the first time in four weeks. Meanwhile, A24's Midsommar delivered the largest indie opening of the year while landing just outside the weekend top five.

    Sony's Spider-Man: Far from Home delivered a #1 finish at the weekend box office as Marvel still proves mighty. The pic debuted on Tuesday last week, entering the weekend with over $91 million already in its coffers, and over the three-day it topped that figure, bringing in an estimated $93.6 million for a six-day start totaling over $185 million. The performance is the largest six-day opening for a Tuesday opener and 22nd largest six-day performance of all-time. This is on top of the film already delivering the largest Tuesday opening day ever, not to mention the second widest opening ever as it debuted in a massive 4,634 locations.

    It's difficult to compare the film's debut to 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming given the Tuesday debut, but after six days Far from Home is already out-pacing its predecessor by over $30 million. The film is also a hit with audiences, just as it was with critics, earning an "A" CinemaScore from opening day crowds and currently sitting with an 8.1/10 rating from IMDb users. Opening weekend crowds were 60% male with 42% of the overall audience coming in aged 25 or older.

    Internationally, Far from Home debuted in three markets last weekend and this weekend expanded that reach to all but Italy, where the film will launch this coming Wednesday. After a strong start last weekend the webslinger delivered $244 million from 66 markets this weekend for an overseas cume that now totals $395 million and a global tally reaching $580 million. Top market debuts include Tuesday's launch in South Korea where the film has brought in $33.8 million. Additionally, the UK's six-day launch totals $17.8 million and Mexico delivered $13.9 million in four days. The film began playing on Monday in Australia where it has now delivered nearly $12 million and Russia added another $9.6 million. The film's top overseas market is China, where it opened last weekend, and this weekend the film's cume now climbs to over $167 million.

    Disney and Pixar's Toy Story 4 moves to second place in its third weekend, bringing in an estimated $34.4 million, pushing the film's domestic cume over $300 million to $306.6 million. Internationally, the animated feature delivered over $43 million this weekend for an overseas cume that now stands at $343.4 million and a global cume that now totals $650 million.

    Universal's Yesterday dipped just -37% in its second weekend, bringing in an estimated $10.75 million and pushing its domestic cume to $36.8 million after ten days in release. Yesterday also added seven new locations internationally this weekend including France ($1.3m) and Spain ($1m), and brought in nearly $8 million from 35 markets now in play. Overall the film's overseas cume now totals over $20 million for a $57 million global tally.

    WB's Annabelle Comes Home landed in fourth with an estimated $9.75 million, dipping -52% in its second weekend as the film's domestic cume now tops $50 million after 12 days in release. Internationally, the film added over $20 million from 9 markets this weekend for an overseas cume just shy of $85 million and a worldwide total creeping up on $135 million.

    Rounding out the top five is Disney's Aladdin, which added another $7.6 million this weekend as the film's domestic cume now totals over $320 million. Internationally, the film brought in another $16.2 million this weekend as the overseas cume climbs over $600 million for a worldwide total that now totals over $921 million.

    Finishing just outside the top five is A24's Midsommar, which opened on Wednesday last week and delivered an estimated $6.56 million for the three-day weekend while finishing with nearly $11 million for the five-day frame. The film received a "C+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, which is actually an improvement over writer/director Ari Aster's Hereditary, which enjoyed a 3.2x multiplier last June.

    In limited release, Roadside's Marianne & Leonard brought in an estimated $44,311 from four locations ($11,078 PTA) and Balcony's release of The Cat Rescuers delivered $7,002 from three theaters ($2,334 PTA).

    Next weekend sees the release of Paramount's crocodile thriller Crawl and R-rated Fox comedy Stuber.

    You can check out all of this weekend's estimated results right here and we'll be updating our charts with weekend actuals on Monday afternoon.

    'Spider-Man: Far from Home' Repeats at #1, Nearing $850 Million Worldwide



    It was a repeat weekend for last week's top two films as Sony's Spider-Man: Far from Home topped the weekend while nearing $850 million globally and Disney and Pixar's Toy Story 4 found itself in the runner-up position while becoming the fifth largest Pixar release domestically ever. As for the weekend's new wide releases, both played mostly to expectations with Paramount's Crawl finishing in third and Disney's release of Fox's Stuber landing in fourth.

    Sony's Spider-Man: Far from Home delivered a repeat performance atop the weekend box office, bringing in an estimated $45.3 million, signaling a -51% drop as its domestic cume now stands just shy of $275 million. Meanwhile, the film added $100 million overseas this weekend, pushing the global cume just shy of $850 million after 17 days of release. Far from Home's $572.5 million international haul now makes it the highest grossing Spider-Man movie internationally, topping Spider-Man 3's $555 million overseas total. China remains the film's top international market where it's estimated cume currently stands at $191.8 million along with South Korea ($49.7m), UK ($28.6m), Mexico ($24.1m), Brazil ($18m), Australia ($20.1m), France ($14.8m), Indonesia ($15.9m), Russia ($17m) and Germany ($11.1m).

    In the runner-up position for the second weekend in a row is Disney and Pixar's Toy Story 4, dipping -39% for an estimated $20.66 million. The film's domestic cume stands at $346 million as it enters its fourth weekend in release, now ranking as the fifth largest Pixar release domestically of all-time.

    Internationally, Toy Story 4 added $48.1 million for an overseas cume that now totals nearly $425 million and a global tally topping $771 million. Among the weekend's new markets, the film debuted in Japan with an estimated $15.3 million, setting the highest Disney Animation/Pixar opening of all-time in the market. The film also opened in Hong Kong with an estimated $4.6 million, which also served as a record for a Disney Animation/Pixar title. The final key market where the film has yet to release is Germany where it will open on August 15.

    In third we come to the first of the weekend's two new wide releases in Paramount's R-rated alligator thriller Crawl, which debuted just shy of Mojo's pre-weekend forecast with an estimated $12 million. The performance tops our pre-weekend comp 47 Meters Down, which opened with $11.2 million back in June 2017 before finishing with over $44 million domestically and has a sequel set to hit theaters next month.

    Crawl received a "B" CinemaScore from opening day audiences and played to a crowd that was 51% male. Additionally, 64% of the opening weekend audience was aged 25 or older.

    Internationally, Crawl debuted in 20 markets and brought in an estimated $4.8 million with Malaysia's $1 million opening leading the way. Upcoming key releases include a July 24 release in France followed by Mexico (Aug 9), Russia (Aug 22), Germany (Aug 22), the UK (Aug 23), Spain (Aug 23) and Brazil (Sep 26).

    Disney's release of Fox's R-rated comedy Stuber stumbled into fourth with an estimated $8 million. The film received a "B" CinemaScore from opening day audiences while playing to a crowd that was 56% male and 61% of the overall audience was aged 25 or older.

    Internationally, Stuber opened in nine markets with an estimated $3 million. The film's top market is Russia where it opened with $500k with key upcoming openings including Mexico (Jul 26), Germany (Aug 22), Italy (Aug 29), Spain (Sep 13), France (Oct 30) and Brazil (Nov 7).

    Rounding out the top five is Universal's Yesterday with an estimated $6.75 million, dropping just -33% as it enters its third week in release. The film's domestic cume now stands at $48.3 million. The film also added another $7.8 million internationally from 42 markets currently in play, pushing the overseas cume over $32 million for a global tally that now stands at $80.5 million.

    In limited release, A24's The Farewell debuted in four locations with an estimated $351,330, for the best opening weekend theater average of the year so far, coming in at $87,833 per theater. The film will expand into top markets next weekend, ahead of a nationwide expansion on August 2.

    Additionally, Reliance's Bollywood release Super 30 brought in an estimated $923,912 from 317 theaters ($2,915 PTA) while Bleecker's The Art of Self-Defense brought in an estimated $121,000 from seven locations for a $17,297 per theater average. The Art of Self-Defense will be expanding into over 500 locations next weekend. Urban Movie Channel debuted I Got the Hook Up 2 in 37 theaters with an estimated $143,000 ($3,873 PTA); Entertainment Studios's documentary Bethany Hamilton: Unstoppable brought in an estimated $250,000 from 205 locations ($1,220 PTA); and IFC's Sword of Trust brought in an estimated $22,512 from two theaters.

    Next weekend will belong to Disney's The Lion King, which will open in over 4,500 locations with high expectations for its opening weekend. On that note, The Lion King already began its international roll-out this weekend, opening in China with an estimated $54.7 million and will open in all other international markets next weekend with the U.S. with the exception of Hong Kong, Japan and Italy.

    'The Lion King' Debuts with Record $185M & 'Endgame' Becomes Global #1



    Yet again, it took another Disney film to energize the weekend box office as this was the first weekend in the last six to top the same weekend last year and it's all thanks to Disney's The Lion King, which topped the weekend box office with a record $185 million, surpassing the total gross for the same weekend last year all on its own. Disney's success this weekend didn't end there, either, as Avengers: Endgame surpassed Avatar to become the highest grossing worldwide release of all-time.

    With an estimated $185 million, Disney's The Lion King topped the weekend box office with a record opening weekend for the month of July, topping the previous record held by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 ($169.1m). The debut is the second largest opening of the year so far and seventh largest of all-time. The film's debut in 4,725 locations was also a record and the debut was also the largest ever for a PG-rated film.

    Digging further, the back-and-forth over just how to classify the film — Is it animated or is it live-action? — makes for something of a conundrum on Mojo's charts. Should you determine the CGI-animated feature is an animated film, then it is technically the largest opening ever for an animated feature, topping Incredibles 2 ($182.6m). Additionally, Mojo lists the film as one of Disney's Live Action Reimaginings, begging the question over whether it is live-action or not and how much does intent matter? The film is intended to appear as if it is live-action, which is to say we may be closer than ever to defining a whole new medium in filmmaking.

    Looking ahead, while critics were lukewarm on the film, opening day audiences gave it an "A" CinemaScore. Opening weekend crowds were 53% female with 50% of the audience coming in aged 25 or older. Ignoring genre classifications for the moment, looking at Disney Live Action Reimaginings going back to 2014's Maleficent we see these films averaging a 3.18x multiplier, which would suggest The Lion King is looking at a domestic run around $590 million and that is considering Aladdin's current 3.7x multiplier and that film is still ranking in the weekend top ten with room to run. Should Lion King match Aladdin's current multiplier we're talking about a domestic run over $687 million. However, should it play closer to 2017's Beauty and the Beast that run is more likely to finish closer to $535 million.

    Internationally, The Lion King added another $269 million this weekend for an international cume that now stands at $346 million and a global cume totaling $531 million. Technically, this was the film's second weekend internationally after it opened in China last weekend where the picture has already grossed $97.5 million. Beyond that, other top grossing markets include the UK ($19.9m), France ($19.6m), Mexico ($18.7m), Brazil ($17.9m), Korea ($17.7m), Australia ($17.1m), Russia ($16.7m), Germany ($12.3m), India ($9.0m), Spain ($8.4m) and Netherlands ($6m). The film will open in Hong Kong next weekend followed by openings in Japan (Aug 9) and Italy (Aug 21).

    Sony's Spider-Man: Far from Home finished in second place after two weekends atop the box office with an estimated $21 million. The film's domestic cume now stands just shy of $320 million as it enters its third week in release. An international update for Spider-Man was not available as of press time.

    Disney and Pixar's Toy Story 4 held on very well in the face of The Lion King, delivering an estimated $14.6 million for a third place finish and a domestic cume that now tops $375 million as the animated feature begins its fifth week in release. Internationally, Toy Story 4 added another $25.8 million, pushing the film's overseas cume to $483.9 million and a global cume just shy of $860 million, making it the fifth highest worldwide release for Pixar all-time.

    Paramount's Crawl dipped -50% for an estimated $6 million three-day and a domestic cume that now stands just shy of $24 million after ten days in release. Internationally, the film has still only reached ~26% of the marketplace and brought in $2.7 million from 21 markets for an overseas cume that currently stands just shy of $10 million.

    Rounding out the top five is Universal's Yesterday, which dipped just -24% for a three-day totaling just over $5 million, raising the film's domestic cume to $57.5 million as it enters its fourth week in release. The film also added another $4.3 million internationally this weekend for a $40.6 million overseas cume, bringing the global cume for the $26 million production just shy of $100 million.

    Just outside the top twelve, Bleecker's The Art of Self-Defense expanded into 550 locations (+543) and brought in an estimated $1.05 million, bringing the film's domestic cume to $1.2 million.

    In limited release, Sony Classics debuted David Crosby: Remember My Name into four locations with an estimated $41,050 ($10,263 PTA); Blue Fox's Rosie brought in an estimated $2,970 from two theaters in New York and Los Angeles; Big World's I Do Not Care If We Go Down in History as Barbarians opened in one theater with an estimated $2,176; and Cinema Libre's At War opened with $1,550, also in only one theater.

    Finally, this weekend saw a new king of the global box office in the form of Disney and Marvel's Avengers: Endgame. The massive conclusion to Marvel's Infinity Saga topped Avatar, which has held the worldwide record gross for ten years, as Endgame's global tally now stands at $2.79 billion. Added to that, if you missed the announcement, Marvel titled several of its upcoming 2020 and 2021 releases as the next phase in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is set to begin.

    Next weekend sees the release of Quentin Tarantino's latest film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which will be opening in over 3,500 locations.

    It's unfortunate that Endgame had to do the re-release thing to top Avatar, but then again Avatar did the same thing during its run, so all's fair in the magical world of Disney. Can't wait for Avatar to take back the top spot when they inevitably re-re-release it before the sequel comes out.

    It's honestly amazing the achievement by Avatar to be so successful. Endgame needed essentially 11 years of build up and was the culmination of 20 films just to squeeze past this stand alone film. No idea how James Cameron does it, tbf.

    I'd love it if Avatar and End Game just keeps this going forever to the point that they run a single theater in a random Nebraska town for one night just to bring in an extra $50 to retake the #1 spot.

    'Lion King' Repeats at #1 While Tarantino's 'Once Upon a Time...' Rings Up $40M Debut



    While the weekend wasn't quite as large as anticipated, it was still the second straight weekend to top the same weekend last year. Leading the way for a second weekend in a row was Disney's The Lion King as it will soon top $1 billion worldwide, followed by a $40 million debut for Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, serving as the director's largest three-day debut to date. Additionally, A24's The Farewell found a spot in the top ten playing in just 135 locations while both Spider-Man: Far from Home and Aladdin topped $1 billion globally this weekend.

    Disney's The Lion King found itself atop the weekend box office yet again, though it fell much harder than expected in its second weekend. With an estimated $75.5 million, the remake of the animated classic dipped -60.6% in its sophomore frame as the film's domestic total now stands over $351 million. While the film did deliver the largest opening weekend when compared to the top Disney Reimaginings, it also resulted in the largest drop among those films, which can be a byproduct of such a large debut. The full story will be told over the coming weekends when it comes to the film's theatrical longevity in the domestic marketplace.

    Internationally, the film added another $142.8 million as its overseas total now stands at $611.9 million for a global cume reaching $962.7 million. As we'll detail shortly, this was a weekend for films topping $1 billion globally and The Lion King will be joining that crowd soon enough with plenty more to come as the film has still yet to open in Japan (8/9) and Italy (8/21).

    In the runner-up position is Sony's debut of Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood with an estimated $40.35 million, serving as the largest opening weekend for the director, topping the $38 million opening for Inglourious Basterds back in August 2009. Opening day audiences gave the film a "B" CinemaScore, which is almost a grade point below the "A-" for Django Unchained. The crowd was 54% male and 64% were aged 25 or older.

    Sony also landed in third place with Spider-Man: Far from Home with an estimated $12.2 million as it enters its fourth week in release with a domestic cume that now stands just shy of $345 million. To go along with its domestic success, Far from Home topped $1 billion worldwide this weekend thanks to an additional $21 million overseas for an international cume that now stands at $692.4 million and a global tally topping $1.03 billion. The film now stands as the ninth title in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to top $1 billion globally and the fourth film this year. This is the first Spider-Man film to ever top $1 billion worldwide.

    Disney and Pixar's Toy Story 4 dropped just -36.5% as it enters is sixth week in release with an estimated $9.87 million for a domestic cume that now totals $395.6 million. Internationally the animated feature added $19.4 million for an overseas cume totaling $522.3 million. The film's global cume now stands at $917.9 million, ranking as the fourth largest Pixar release globally of all-time.

    Rounding out the top five is a solid performance from Crawl. The thriller from Paramount and director Alexandre Aja dipped just -34% as it entered its third week in release with an estimated $4 million resulting in a domestic cume that now totals over $31 million. The $13.5 million production also added another $3.4 million internationally for an overseas total that now stands at $14.4 million and a global cume topping $45 million.

    Elsewhere in the top ten, A24's release of The Farewell expanded into 135 locations (+100) this weekend and landed a spot in the top ten with an estimated $1.55 million ($11,150 PTA) as the film's domestic cume now stands at $3.7 million as it enters its third week in limited release.

    Additionally, along with Spider-Man, Disney's Aladdin also topped $1 billion globally this weekend, adding an additional $2.9 million domestically and another $7.2 million internationally for a global cume that now stands at $1.009 billion. This is the first film in Will Smith's lengthy career to top $1 billion globally and the third among Disney's Live Action Reimaginings so far with The Lion King set to join that crowd later this week.

    In limited release, Neon's Honeyland debuted with an estimated $29,999 in two locations; Kino Lorber's The Mountain opened in two theaters with an estimated $16,013; PBS and Frontline's For Sama opened in three locations with an estimated $9,350 ($3,117 PTA); and Magnolia's Mike Wallace is Here debuted in three locations with an estimated $19,500 ($6,500 PTA).

    Next weekend Universal continues the Fast & Furious franchise with the spin-off Hobbs & Shaw, which will launch in over 4,200 locations.

    You can check out all of this weekend's estimated results right here and we'll be updating our charts with weekend actuals on Monday afternoon

    'Scary Stories' Leads Newcomers with $20.8M Debut as 'Hobbs & Shaw' Repeats at #1



    It wasn't as close a race at the top of the weekend box office as we thought it might be heading into the weekend as Universal's Hobbs & Shaw held on much better than expected and easily retained the #1 spot for a second week in a row. As for the weekend's crowd of six new wide releases, CBS Films, eOne and Lionsgate's Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark led the way with nearly $21 million, followed by a decent performance from Paramount's Dora and the Lost City of Gold while Fathom and Trafalgar's release of Bring the Soul: The Movie appears to have eked its way into the top ten.

    Leading the weekend was Hobbs & Shaw for the second weekend in a row. The film held on quite well in its second weekend, dipping just -51% for an estimated $25.4 million sophomore frame and a domestic cume that now stands at $108.5 million.

    Internationally, Hobbs & Shaw added another $60.8 million internationally, pushing its overseas cume to $224.1 million for a global tally that now tops $332 million as it enters its second week in release. This week saw the film open in five new markets including a $6.9 million launch in France, a $2.6 million debut in Italy and a $1.6 million opening in Belgium. The film has still yet to open in Korea, where it will debut on August 14, followed by an August 23 launch in China.

    In the runner up position is where we find the first of the weekend's five new wide releases in CBS Films, eOne and Lionsgate's Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. The PG-13 thriller topped pre-weekend expectations and delivered an estimated $20.8 million this weekend. The $25 million production received a "C" CinemaScore from opening day audiences while playing to a weekend crowd that was 57% female and 54% of the overall audience was aged 25 or older.

    Disney's The Lion King ended up in third place, delivering an estimated $20 million. The film's domestic cume now stands at $473 million as it enters its fourth weekend in release.

    Internationally, The Lion King launched in Japan this weekend with an estimated $9.3 million for a second place finish. The film's international cume now totals $861.5 million for a global tally reaching $1.334 billion, topping Beauty and the Beast ($1.263b) to become the highest grossing film among Disney's "live-action" reimaginings not to mention the 12th highest grossing worldwide release of all-time. Additionally, depending on how you look at it given media and industry confusion over whether the film is truly live-action or animated, The Lion King is now the highest grossing "animated" release of all-time worldwide, topping Frozen's $1.276 billion.

    Paramount's release of Dora and the Lost City of Gold saw the live-action adaptation of the animated Nickelodeon series debut with an estimated $17 million. The film received an "A" CinemaScore from opening day audiences while playing to a weekend crowd that was 57% female and 54% of the overall audience was aged 25 or older.

    Internationally, Dora debuted in 11 overseas markets this weekend with an estimated $2.5 million. Leading the way was Russia with an estimated $878,000 opening. The film will continue to expand internationally over the next few months ending with a November 7 release in Brazil.

    Rounding out the top five is Sony's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, dipping -42% as it entered its third week in release with an estimated $11.6 million. The film's domestic cume now stands at just over $100 million.

    Internationally, Once Upon a Time debuted in Russia with an estimated $7.7 million. The release was the film's first overseas major market debut with openings in France, UK, Australia, Brazil, Germany and Spain set for next weekend followed by Mexico (Aug 23), Japan (Aug 30), Italy (Sep 18) and South Korea (Sep 26).

    Just outside the top five is where we find Fox's release of The Art of Racing in the Rain. The drama debuted in 2,765 locations and finished on the lower end of expectations with an estimated $8.1 million. The film received an "A-" CinemaScore playing to an audience that was 62% female and 59% of the overall crowd was aged 25 or older.

    Internationally, the film launched in just ~16% of the overseas marketplace with an estimated $1.1 million with debuts in Brazil and the United Kingdom accounting for roughly half that figure. The film will continue to launch internationally throughout the year culminating in an early December release in France.

    Right behind it is Warner Bros. and New Line's The Kitchen, which fell well below even the lowest of expectations, bringing in an estimated $5.5 million from 2,745 theaters. The film entered the weekend as the worst reviewed feature among new releases and came away with a "B-" CinemaScore from an audience that was 51% female and 89% were over the age of 25.

    And rounding out the top ten is Fathom and Trafalgar's release of Bring the Soul: The Movie, a new documentary feature centered on South Korean boy band BTS. The film began playing in theaters on August 7 and this weekend, playing in 873 locations, estimates have it edging out A24's The Farewell for a place in the top ten with an estimated $2.29 million and a domestic cume that now totals over $4.4 million after five days in release.

    Just outside the top ten is Bleecker's release of Brian Banks, which finished pretty much right on expectations with an estimated $2.1 million from 1,240 locations.

    In limited release, Roadside's The Peanut Butter Falcon opened in 17 locations with an estimated $205,236 ($12,108 PTA); Amazon's One Child Nation opened in two theaters with an estimated $22,244; and Sony Classics debuted After the Wedding in five theaters with an estimated $57,124 ($11,425 PTA).

    Next weekend will be yet another busy week when it comes to new releases as four new films will make their theatrical debut over the weekend, but not before Sony's The Angry Birds Movie 2 begins playing in over 3,500 locations on Tuesday. After that, Friday will see the release of Entertainment Studios's 47 Meters Down: Uncaged, which will swim into over 3,600 locations. Universal will also debut the R-rated comedy Good Boys in ~3,000 theaters, UAR's Where'd You Go, Bernadette? will release in over 2,300 locations and Blinded by the Light will launch in over 2,000 theaters.

    'Good Boys' Gives Universal Its Third Straight Weekend #1



    Universal scored a strong performance this weekend from their new R-rated comedy Good Boys, which out performed expectations and took the top spot at the weekend box office. The studio also scored a second place finish with Hobbs & Shaw over a weekend that saw yet another five new wide releases hit theaters. However, outside of Good Boys, the weekend's four other newcomers mostly struggled over the weekend, which includes WB's Blinded by the Light narrowly finding its way into the top ten while UAR's Where'd You Go, Bernadette fell short.

    With an estimated $21 million, Universal's Good Boys finished atop the weekend box office. Doing so with not only a strong critical reception heading into the weekend, but audiences liked what they saw, with the film receiving an 89% audience score at RottenTomatoes and a "B+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences. The film played to a crowd that was 52% male and 59% of the opening weekend audience was aged 25 or older. Looking ahead, the performance for the $20 million production is very close to the studio's $20.5 million opening for Blockers last April, which went on to gross over $60 million domestically.

    In a year filled with sequels, adaptations and remakes, Good Boys sits alongside The Curse of La Llorona and Us (another Universal release) as only the third original film in 2019 to top the weekend box office. To go along with that, the film's performance helped Universal become only the second studio in 2019 to top $1 billion at the domestic box office so far.

    Internationally, Good Boys opened in 13 overseas markets with an estimated $2.1 million, led by a $1 million opening in the UK. Next weekend the film will debut in France, Germany, Spain and Austria with openings in Italy and Australia in September and an early October launch in Mexico.

    Finishing in second is Universal's Hobbs & Shaw, which held on pretty well as it entered its third weekend in release, dipping -44% and finishing with an estimated $14.1 million for the weekend as its domestic cume now climbs to $133.7 million. Internationally, the film added another $45.7 million, including a franchise record, $15 million debut in South Korea. Overall the film has now grossed over $303 million overseas for a worldwide cume totaling $437 million.

    Disney's The Lion King landed in third place with an estimated $11.9 million as it is closing in on $500 million domestically after leap-frogging Finding Dory on the all-time domestic chart this weekend to become the 14th highest grossing domestic release of all-time with over $496 million so far.

    Internationally, The Lion King added another $33.8 million this weekend for an overseas cume that now stands at $939.1 million and a $1.435 billion global tally. The result makes the film the #9 worldwide release of all-time, topping Avengers: Age of Ultron.

    Sony Animation debuted The Angry Birds Movie 2 on Tuesday of this week and the animated sequel has struggled when compared to the original release, which delivered over $38 million in its first three days. By comparison, Angry Birds 2 could only muster an estimated $10.5 million this weekend for a $16.2 million six-day performance. The film received a "B+" CinemaScore while playing to an audience that was 51% female with 53% of the crowd coming in aged 25 or older.

    Rounding out the top five is Lionsgate's Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, which dipped -52% in its sophomore frame for an estimated $10 million and a domestic cume that now totals more than $40 million after just ten days in release. Internationally, the film added another $5.6 million for an international cume that now tops $14 million and a global cume just shy of $55 million.

    Outside the top five, Entertainment Studios's 47 Meters Down: Uncaged fell well short of the studio's $15-16 million expectations with an estimated $9 million performance over the three-day weekend. The performance is also well short of the $11.2 million opening for the first film, which went on to deliver a solid $44.3 million domestically. The sequel received a "C+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences.

    Battling for a spot out at the bottom of the weekend top ten is WB's Blinded by the Light and UAR's Where'd You Go, Bernadette with only one of the two able to crack $4 million over their first three days in release. Blinded by the Light debuted with an estimated $4.45 million over its first three days despite the fact it entered the weekend with great reviews and audiences that turned out seemed to agree, giving the film an "A-" CinemaScore. Unfortunately, this is the second disappointment for WB in two weeks following the release of The Kitchen last weekend. Blinded played to an audience that was 51% female with 86% of the crowd coming in aged 25 or older.

    Outside the top ten is where we find Where'd You Go, Bernadette, finishing with an estimated $3.45 million. The film played to a crowd that was 66% female and 84% of the opening weekend audience was aged 25 or older. Opening day audiences gave the film a "B" CinemaScore.

    In limited release, Fox International's Misison Mangal opened on Thursday and brought in $1.46 million over its four day debut from 263 locations; Sony Classics launched Aquerela in five theaters on Friday with an estimated $23,474 (PTA $4,693); and Cinema Guild's End of the Century opened in one theater with an estimated $10,398.

    Next weekend gets off to an early start with Fox Searchlight's Ready or Not debuting on Wednesday followed by Lionsgate's release of Angel has Fallen and Sony's Overcomer on Friday.

    'Angel Has Fallen' Rises to Weekend #1 as 'Hobbs & Shaw' Delivers in China Bow




    Lionsgate and Millennium's Angel Has Fallen outperformed expectations with a strong #1 debut, nearly matching its predecessor and giving Lionsgate its second #1 film of the year after John Wick 3. Also over-performing was Sony and AFFIRM's Overcomer while Universal's Hobbs & Shaw debuted in China with the largest August opening ever in the market.

    With an estimated $21.25 million, Lionsgate and Millennium's Angel Has Fallen topped the weekend box office, delivering a debut just shy of the $21.6 million opening for the previous installment in the Fallen franchise, London Has Fallen. To that point, while the film's opening weekend is the smallest in the franchise, it is the first to debut at #1 after both of the previous installments landed in the runner-up position, opening against major animated titles over their respective weekends. Angel had no such competition, debuting in the latter portion of August where box office performances are typically lighter.

    Looking ahead, the film joined its predecessors earning an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences and that opinion was also reflected in its RottenTomatoes audience score, which came in at 94%. The opening weekend audience was 51% male with 58% of the audience coming in aged 30 years or older.

    Universal's R-rated comedy Good Boys landed in second with an estimated $11.75 million, dipping just -45% in its second weekend as the film's domestic cume now stands at $42 million. Internationally the film is playing in 22 markets where it brought in an estimated $3.5 million this weekend for an overseas cume just shy of $7 million and a global tally that stands at $49 million.

    Sony and AFFIRM's Overcomer outperformed all expectations, opening with an impressive $8.2 million from just 1,723 locations. The performance is the third largest opening for a film from faith-based filmmakers the Kendrick brothers, whose last film, War Room grossed over $67 million following an $11.3 million debut in 2015. Like the Kendricks' previous films, it was well received by opening weekend audiences, which gave the film an "A+" CinemaScore and a 99% audience score on RottenTomatoes, suggesting another long run at the domestic box office for one of their films.

    Disney's The Lion King dipped just -35% as it enters its sixth week in release with an estimated $8.2 million three-day. The monster hit has now delivered over $510 million domestically. Internationally, the film's overseas cume is now just shy of reaching $1 billion after adding another $30 million this weekend from 56 markets. Overall the film's overseas cume now stands at $997.9 million for a global performance that not tops $1.5 billion, maintaining its spot as the ninth largest global release ever.

    Rounding out the top five is Universal's Hobbs & Shaw, which brought in an estimated $8.1 million for a domestic cume that now tops $147 million as it enters its fourth week in release. The big news for the film, however, comes from overseas where it debuted in China with an estimated $102 million, the largest August opening ever in the market and the second largest opening for the franchise in China behind The Fate of the Furious. Overall, the film's international weekend topped $120 million for a $441.2 million overseas cume and a global tally that now stands at $588.9 million.

    Just outside the top five in sixth position is Fox Searchlight's Ready or Not, which debuted on Wednesday and entered the weekend with just over $3 million after its first two days in release. Over the weekend the film played in 2,855 locations and brought in an estimated $7.55 million for a five day performance just shy of $11 million. While a bit light compared to industry expectations, the film has excellent reviews and received a "B+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, which is a solid response for a film within the horror/thriller genre. Postrack reports the film's audience was 53% female with 79% of the crowd coming in under the age of 35.

    Elsewhere, finishing in twelfth position, is Roadside's The Peanut Butter Falcon, which expanded into 991 locations (+942) this weekend and brought in an estimated $3 million.

    In limited release, Amazon Studios debuted Brittany Runs a Marathon in five locations with an estimated $175,696 ($35,194 PTA); Roadside's Fiddler: A Miracle of Miracles opened in seven locations with an estimated $35,601 ($5,085 PTA); Music Box's Give Me Liberty opened in three theaters with an estimated $33,391 ($11,130 PTA); Abramorama's Miles Davis: Birth of Cool brought in an estimated $17,580 from one location; and IFC's Vita & Virginia debuted in one theater with an estimated $4,047.

    'Angel Has Fallen' Tops Labor Day Weekend Box Office as Summer Season Comes to a Close



    This weekend sees the 2019 summer movie season come to a close with the second worst weekend of the year so far, in which the top twelve generated a combined $69.5 million. The summer performance currently ranks as the eighth largest summer of all-time, in which the domestic box office generated $4.22 billion, down ~4% compared to last year's summer total which actually saw the box office rise considerably compared to the dismal 2017 summer season.

    Leading this weekend's charge for a second week in a row was Lionsgate and Millennium's Angel Has Fallen with an estimated $11.57 million. The film is expected to deliver $14.5 million for the four-day holiday, which would bring the domestic cume to $43.6 million by the end of day on Monday.

    Universal's Good Boys landed in second, dipping -21% compared to last weekend, bringing in an estimated $9.19 million, pushing the film's domestic cume over $56 million. The film is expected to add another $2.4 million tomorrow for a $11.6 million four-day performance and a $58.5 million domestic cume. The film also added another $2.7 million internationally this weekend for a global cume that now tops $70 million.

    Disney's The Lion King brought in an estimated $6.7 million over the weekend and is expected to finish with over $9 million for the four-day holiday frame and a domestic cume topping $523 million. Internationally, the film added another $20.6 million this weekend, pushing the international cume to $1.041 billion for a global tally that now tops $1.56 billion as the film has not passed The Avengers to become the seventh highest grossing global release of all-time.

    In fourth is Universal's Hobbs & Shaw dipping -22% and finishing the three-day with an estimated $6.28 million with expectations to deliver $8 million for the four-day holiday and a domestic cume nearing $159 million as it enters its fifth week in release. Internationally, the film added over $39 million this weekend, pushing the overseas cume over $525 million for a global total that now tops $684 million.

    Sony's Overcomer rounds out the top five with a $5.7 million three-day, pushing toward a $7.8 million four-day performance and a domestic cume topping $19 million.

    As for the weekend's newcomers, OTL and Blumhouse's Don't Let Go debuted with an estimated $2.4 million for the three-day from 922 theaters and is expected to top $3 million for the four-day holiday frame.

    Forrest Films's Bennett's War limped across the finish line with an estimated $445,151 and a $459 per theater average from 970 locations. The film is expected to finish the four-day frame with an estimated $580k. The performance ranks as one of the worst opening theater averages ever for a film debuting in over 600 locations.

    In limited release, Pantelion's Tod@s Caen opened in 371 locations with an estimated $1.08 million for the three-day ($2,911 PTA) and is expected to deliver $1.35 million for the four-day. Additionally, Blue Fox's Killerman brought in an estimated $150,214 from 322 theaters ($467 PTA); Magnolia's Raise Hell: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins opened in 18 theaters in Texas with an estimated $93,120 ($5,173 PTA); IFC's Official Secrets opened in four theaters with an estimated $80,046 ($20,012 PTA); and 1091's Before You Know It opened in three locations with an estimated $27,000 ($9,000 PTA).
    These are the 4 day weekend numbers.

    Re: Box Office - Updated Every Monday

    'It: Chapter 2' Floats to #1 with $185 Million Global Debut



    Warner Bros. and New Line's It: Chapter Two kicked off the fall box office season with a strong, $91 million debut. The performance easily topped the weekend box office, finishing ahead of the second place film by $85 million. While the performance trails the first film's $123 million opening back in 2017, it is still within studio expectations and ranks as the second largest horror opening of all-time while 2017's It remains to be the only horror film to ever open with more than $100 million.

    It: Chapter Two and its predecessor now rank as the first and second largest openings for both a horror film as well as the first and second largest September openings of all-time. Interestingly enough, one reason Chapter Two may have fallen short of its predecessor would appear to be the film's inability to attract a female audience similar to the first film and most horror films nowadays, which tend to be majority female, even if by a small margin. Chapter Two drew an audience that was 47% female compared to the first film's 51%. In terms of age, the sequel's audience leaned slightly older than the first film with 67% of the opening weekend crowd aged 25 or older compared to 65% for the first film.

    The film did receive a "B+" CinemaScore, which is the same as the original film, though IMDb user ratings tell a different story. Chapter Two is currently rated 7.2/10, a full point below the first film's 8.2 rating as of the Sunday following release.

    Internationally, the film opened in 75 markets and delivered $94 million, debuting with the largest horror openings ever in 16 markets including Russia, Netherlands, Norway, Finland and Argentina. The top market was Mexico with an estimated $10.2 million followed by the UK ($9.4m), Russia ($8.8m), Germany ($7.1m), Italy ($5.5m), Brazil ($4.6m), Australia ($4.4m), Spain ($3.2m), Korea ($3.2m), Indonesia ($2.7m) and Argentina ($1.4m). The film will open in France this Wednesday followed by a November 1 opening in Japan. Overall the film delivered a $185 million global opening.

    In second, Lionsgate and Millennium's Angel Has Fallen delivered an estimated $6 million, pushing the film's domestic cume over $53 million as it enters its third week in release.

    Universal's Good Boys finished in third with an estimated $5.4 million, dipping -43% as the film's domestic cume now stands at $66.8 million. Internationally, the R-rated comedy added $2.3 million from 28 markets for an overseas total that now stands at $15.6 million and a global cume topping $82 million.

    Disney's The Lion King lands in the top five for the eighth straight weekend, bringing in an estimated $4.2 million for a $529.1 million domestic cume. The film also added $13.4 million internationally this weekend for an overseas cume totaling $1.07 billion and a global cume just shy of $1.6 billion as the film now ranks seventh all-time both globally and internationally.

    Rounding out the top five is Sony and AFFIRM's Overcomer, which added theaters for the third straight week in a row and dipped just -34% for an estimated $3.75 million and a domestic cume that now stands at $24.7 million.

    Elsewhere, the best hold in the top ten belongs to Roadside's The Peanut Butter Falcon, which added 61 locations and dipped just -24.6% for an estimated $2.27 million three-day, as it moves up from 12th last weekend to seventh position this weekend. The film's domestic cume now stands at $12.2 million as it enters its fifth week in release

    In limited release, Fox International's Chhichhore opened with an estimated $575,000 from 195 locations ($2,949 PTA); Greenwich Entertainment and 1091's documentary Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice opened in seven locations in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco with an estimated $115,500 ($16,500 PTA); Oscilloscope's Ms. Purple brought in an estimated $18,650 from the Landmark NuArt in Los Angeles; and Music Box's Edie opened in seven theaters with an estimated $8,467 ($1,210 PTA)

    Next weekend will see Warner Bros. release The Goldfinch into 2,500+ locations while STX will deliver Hustlers into 3,100 theaters.
    Well that's a solid way to start on week 1.

    'It 2' Repeats at #1, 'Hustlers' Exceeds Expectations & 'The Goldfinch' Flies into a Wall



    It was a mixed bag of a weekend for Warner Bros. which saw It: Chapter Two deliver a strong hold and retain the weekend's #1 spot at the box office, but their new release, The Goldfinch, bombed, delivering one of the worst openings ever for a wide release. Alternatively, STXfilms's Hustlers exploded out of the gates with the studio's largest opening in its five year history as well as star Jennifer Lopez's largest live-action opening of all-time.

    With an estimated $40.7 million, WB and New Line's It: Chapter Two topped the weekend for the second week in a row, dipping just -55% compared to its opening weekend and pushing the film's domestic cume over $153 million after ten days in release. In addition to that, the horror sequel added another $47 million internationally this weekend for a global tally that now stands at $323.3 million. That total includes a $4.7 million #1 opening in France while the UK remains the film's top international market with $16.5 million so far. Japan is the last key market yet to release where it will open on November 1.

    Collectively, the two films in the It franchise have now grossed over $1.02 billion worldwide.

    In second place with an excellent, $33.2 million debut is STXfilms's Hustlers. The opening is the largest in STX's short history, topping the $23.8 million opening for Bad Moms back in 2016. It's also the largest live-action debut for star Jennifer Lopez, topping the $23.1 million opening for Monster-in-Law back in 2005. The film's opening tops both Girls Trip and Bad Moms, which went on to gross over $115 million and $113 million respectively.

    Hustlers made a splash at the Toronto Film Festival prior to its opening and entered this weekend with a strong, 88% critic rating on RottenTomatoes. The film's audience was 67% female while 69% of the opening weekend crowd was aged 25 or older. Among that crowd 36% were Caucasian, 26% African American, 27% was Hispanic and 9% Asian. Opening day audiences gave the film a "B-" CinemaScore.

    Internationally, Hustlers opened in 15 markets with $4.46 million. Openings included the UK where the film opened to #3 with an estimated $1.7 million followed by a $1.2 million debut in Russia.

    Lionsgate's Angel Has Fallen continued its run with an estimated $4.4 million this weekend, dipping just -26.5% as its domestic cume now tops $60 million and continues to pace ahead of its predecessor.

    Universal's Good Boys landed in fourth with an estimated $4.26 million as the $20 million production has now seen its domestic cume climb over $73 million. In addition to that, the film added another $1.8 million internationally this weekend for a worldwide cume that now tops $91 million with several overseas openings yet to come.

    Placing in the top five for the ninth straight weekend is Disney's The Lion King, which added another $3.5 million domestically for a cume that now totals $533.9 million. This makes The Lion King the 12th largest domestic release of all-time, topping Rogue One and it will soon creep ahead of The Dark Knight ($535.2m) for a spot just outside the top ten. Internationally the picture added another $6.9 million for a global cume that now stands at $1.617 billion.

    It isn't until eighth position that we come to WB's The Goldfinch, which debuted with a disastrous $2.6 million from 2,542 locations. The performance is the sixth worst ever for a film debuting in over 2,500 locations and one more disappointment in a string of them for the studio this year including Shaft, The Kitchen, Blinded by the Light and The Sun is Also a Star.

    The Goldfinch also premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, though it was met with a largely negative critical reaction, resulting in a 25% RottenTomatoes score. Opening weekend audiences were 57% female with a whopping 90% of the opening weekend crowd coming in aged 25 or older, which is a bad sign with the likes of Downton Abbey debuting next weekend. Opening day audiences gave the film a "B" CinemaScore.

    Internationally, The Goldfinch opened in 12 markets with $985,000. Russia led the way with $581,000. The film will open in France this coming Wednesday.

    Elsewhere, rounding out the top ten is Roadside's The Peanut Butter Falcon, which is now playing in 1,490 locations (+180) and dipped just -10% this weekend for an estimated $1.9 million. The film's domestic cume now stands at $15 million after six weeks in release.

    In limited release, Neon's Monos opened in five locations with an estimated $43,285 ($8,657 PTA); Abramorama's Moonlight Sonata opened in one theater with $7,120; Variance launched One Cut of the Dead in two theaters with an estimated $6,200; IFC's The Sound of Silence also opened in two locations, debuting with an estimated $6,148; Abramorama's Cracked Up brought in $5,580 from one theater; and Matson's Desolation Center opened in three theaters with $5,356 ($1,785 PTA).

    Next weekend sees a trio of new wide releases including Fox's Ad Astra in 3,400 locations; Lionsgate's Rambo: Last Blood in 3,300 theaters and Focus's Downton Abbey launching in 3,050 domestic locations after kickstarting its theatrical release internationally this weekend, pulling in $11.7 million from 17 locations, including a #1 debut in the UK with an estimated $6.3 million.
