Straight Outta Compton Stays on Top of the Charts

Straight Outta ComptonFacing weak competition, Straight Outta Compton remained in the top spot at the weekend box-office for the second week in a row. The film earned an estimated $26.76 million to stay in first place. The film’s total domestic gross currently stands at $111.5 million. The film hasn’t earned much of anything overseas, my guess is it hasn’t opened yet, if it will.

Repeating in second place was Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation which added $11.7 million to its total to bring itself to $157.8 million domestically after four weeks. In foreign markets the film has earned $280.8 million to bring its worldwide total to $438.6 million.

Other big debuts this week was Sinister 2 which came in third and earned an estimated $10.6 million, the video game based reboot Hitman: Agent 47 which earned $8.2 million for fourth, and American Ultra which earned $5.5 million to place sixth.

The other major holdover was The Man From U.N.C.L.E. which in its second week came in fifth and earned $7.4 million to bring its domestic total to a meager $26.6 million. The film has earned $26 million in foreign markets so far.

In other comic related movie news, Ant-Man added $4.1 million to its domestic total to come in eighth and bring its domestic earnings to $164.5 million. The film has also earned $196.5 million in foreign markets to bring its total to $361 million. While the film has likely made a profit with a budget of $130 million, it trails other Marvel Cinematic films to be the second worst earner just ahead of The Incredible Hulk. The film has a chance to move past Captain America: The First Avenger before it’s done, but it’ll be close.

Minions continues to rake in the money adding another $3.7 million to its domestic total. The film stands at $319.965 million domestically and is just shy of crossing the billion dollar mark worldwide. It sits at $989.365 million. If it does, it’ll be the fourth film this year to do so.

Fantastic Four continues its spiral into the negative zone (ie how much money it stands to lose when it’s all over). The film added $3.65 million to bring its domestic total to $49.6 million and worldwide total to $130.4 million.

The Diary of a Teenage Girl in its third week continues to expand the number of theaters it’s in. The film is now in 69 theaters and earned $180,000. The film has earned an estimated $425,000 at the domestic box office. It was purchased for $2 million at Sundance.

The yearly box office ranks hasn’t changed from last week. Jurassic World remains in the top spot domestically and has earned $639.568 million. Avengers: Age of Ultron is second with $457.4 million, Furious 7 is third with $351 million, Inside Out is fourth with $342.4 million and Minions is in fifth at $319.965 million.

Worldwide things are similar in rankings with slight differences. Jurassic World is still on top with $1.6229 billion, Furious 7 is second with $1.5117 billion, Age of Ultron is third with $1.4012 billion, Minions is fourth with $989.4 million, and Inside Out is fifth with $689.9 million.

Fantastic Four Gets Clobbered

Fantastic Four movie posterThe negative reviews, and negative buzz surrounding the latest reboot for Fox‘s Fantastic Four likely did in the film. The move was estimated to take first and earn around $40 million for the weekend, but the film actually came in second and was estimated to have earned a poor $26.2 million. Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation held on to first place adding an estimated $29.4 million to its haul.

Fantastic Four is probably done for the summer after its first weekend with a piss poor C- Cinemascore. To compare, Pixels earned a B. Pretty much, unless the film blows up huge overseas, the film will be a loss for Fox.

In other superhero movie news, Ant-Man added an estimated $7.83 million to its total. The film has now earned $326.3 million worldwide in its four weeks. Unadjusted for inflation the film is the second worse film in the Marvel Cinematic universe as far as earnings. It beats just The Incredible Hulk. It may move up a post before it finishes though….

So far this year, domestically (and internationally) Jurassic World is on top so far. The film is the domestic box office champ for the year so far earning $635,627,000 so far. Avengers: Age of Ultron is in second place with $456,942,727, Furious 7 has earned $351,032,910 and is in third, and Inside Out has earned $335,375,000 and is in fourth.

Worldwide, Jurassic World has earned $1.5812 billion to be in first, Furious 7 is in second with $1.5117 billion, Avengers: Age of Ultron has earned $1.3984 billion for third, and Minions is fourth with $912.6 million.

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation has a Successful Mission

rogue nationThe mission was not impossible as Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation was top at the box-office this past weekend. The film earned an estimated $56 million to put it in first. The competition was rather week as another debut Vacation was in second with just an estimated $14.85 million. Mission: Impossible continues Tom Cruise‘s streak as a bankable star.

Ant-Man moved into third place earning an estimated $12.6 million. The film has earned $291.6 million globally with $132.1 million of that domestically and $159.5 of that in foreign markets.

Not too far behind the film was Minions in fourth adding $12.2 million to its total and bringing it to $854.7 million globally so far.

In other movie earnings domestically Jurassic World added $3.8 million, Terminator: Genisys added $900,000, and Avengers: Age of Ultron added $155,000.

Domestically, Jurassic World stands at $631.5 million for the year to be in first, Avengers: Age of Ultron is second with $457 million, Furious 7 is third with $351 million and Inside Out has $329.6 million.

Ant-Man Falls Short, Trainwreck Overperforms

ant-man movie posterAnt-Man fell just short of its projection. The film brought in an estimated $58 million this past weekend. Projections had it opening between $60-$65 million.

Ant-Man had the second worst opening for a Marvel film. The worst was The Incredible Hulk which opened with $55.4 million. It also had the lowest average per screen earning, just $15,051 on average. The film has also earned $56.4 million at the foreign box-office bringing its total to $114.44 million so far.

The film does have an “A” CinemaScore, so maybe there’s hope for the film in the long run, but its debut shows a weak spot in Marvel’s impressive armor. It also makes you wonder if it’ll affect the plans for other debut characters coming up such as Black Panther and Captain Marvel.

Trainwreck, the other major debut this weekend, opened with $30.2 million placing it in third. It’s director Judd Apatow’s second best opening weekend ever. The opening is considered a strong one for the R rated film.

Minions held on to second place earning $50.2 million.

Avengers: Age of Ultron continues to earn bringing in $479,000.

When it comes to totals for the year, Jurrasic World dominates at the domestic box office earning $611.2 million so far, with Age of Ultron in second and $456 million and Furious 7 in third with $351 million.

Worldwide, Jurassic World is now in first with $1.5135 billion so far. That knocks Furious 7 to second with $1.5117 billion and Age of Ultron sits in third with $1.3935 billion.

SDCC 2015: Scarlet Witch and Black Widow Get Age of Ultron Toys

There was a lot made out of the fact that neither Scarlet Witch or Black Widow got toys in Hasbro‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron line. Well, that oversight has been fixed.

As seen at San Diego Comic-Con.

Jurassic World Holds on to First, Crosses $500 million Domestically

jurassic_worldJurassic World three-peat, taking the top spot at the box-office for the third week in a row. It earned an estimated $54.2 million. It narrowly beat Inside Out which earned an estimated $52.1 million in its second week.

Jurassic World has turned into a monster of a summer movie, crossing the $500 million mark at the domestic box-office. It now stands at $500.1 million, and at the foreign box-office it has earned $737.5 million. It’s well over the billion dollar mark, the third film to do so this year, earning $1.24 billion so far. It’s the fastest any film has crossed the $500 million mark doing so in 17 days. The previous record was 23 days by Marvel’s The Avengers. The film is in first place by a long shot in domestic earnings this year and is closing in on second. There’s a chance the film will give the all-time earning spot a run for its money.

Mad Max: Fury Road continues to do well adding an additional $1.74 million to bring its domestic total to $147.1 million. Avengers: Age of Ultron also hung on to tenth place earning an estimated $1.64 million to bring its domestic total to $452.4 million.
