Suicide Squad Remains #1 While Sausage Party is Strong
Suicide Squad held on to first place this past weekend with an expected large drop after its first week. The film earned an estiamted $43.7 million and dropped 67.3%. The film had an estimated budget of $175 million and so far has earned $222.9 million domestically, $242.5 million in foreign markets for a total of $465.4 million worldwide after 12 days.
Sausage Party opened in 2nd and earned an estimated $33.6 million. That’s solid for the “R” rated animated film. The budget for the film is an estimated $19 million, so this is a definite success.
Pete’s Dragon came in third with an estimated $21.5 million. The film’s opening number is debatable as Disney has scored success with live action takes on animated classics. The opening is similar to The BFG which I’d label a misfire. We’ll see how much legs the film has.
When it comes to comic adaptations….
Captain America: Civil War earned an additional $174,000. The film sits at $407.5 million domestically and $1.152 billion worldwide. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows earned an estimated $100,000. Domestically the film sits at $81.8 million and $239 million worldwide. Finally, X-Men: Apocalypse opened in Japan. It earned an estimated $3.1 million to bring it’s worldwide total to $539.7 million so far.
