Hotel Transylvania 3 Tops the Box Office While Ant-Man and the Wasp Shrinks a Hefty 62%
Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation won the weekend box office with an estimated $44.1 million. That amount doesn’t include the $1.27 million the film earned through special Amazon Prime member previews June 30th. That’s all a bit short of the second film’s $48.5 million in September 2015. But, with all of the competition, that’s a solid showing for the film.
The movie received an “A-” CinemaScore from the opening day audiences. The film’s audience was 52% female, and 32% was 25 years or older.
That film’s win was Ant-Man and the Wasp‘s loss. That movie dropped a massive 62% from the previous week to come in second place. That’s the second largest second weekend drop for a Marvel Cinematic Universe film. It’s the fifth Marvel film to not repeat in first place in its second weekend. The movie earned an estimated $29.1 million to bring its domestic total to $132.8 million. The film also added $35.3 million from 44 markets to push its worldwide total to $283.7 million.
In third place was a debut, Skyscraper. The film earned an estimated $25.5 million which fell short of estimates the film would earn around $30 million. The film also opened in 57 markets to earn $40.4 million for a $65.9 million global debut. The film received a “B+” CinemaScore and played to an audience that was 55% male and 52% was 25 years or older.
Incredibles 2 was in fourth place with an estimated $16.2 million to bring its domestic total to $535.8 million. It passed The Dark Knight to become the ninth largest overall film all-time domestically. The film also added $33.3 million internationally and the grand total of the film stands at $856.9 million.
Rounding out the top five was Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom which dropped from second place. The film earned an estimated $15.5 million to bring its domestic total to $363.3 million. Internationally the film added $26.7 million pusing its global total to $1.134 billion.
