Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Dominates the Box Office with $290.5 million Worldwide

Star Wars Rogue OneIt shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone, but Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ruled the weekend box office earning an estimated $155 million. That’s the fourth largest December three-day weekend ever, the third largest opening of 2016, and second December opener to debut over $100 million. The other film to do that was Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It’ll be interesting to see how the film does over the month as it’s going against some other high-profile openings and Oscar bait. It received an “A” CinemaScore, but was pretty male with 66% of the audience. 38% were under the age of 25. So far the film has an 84% on RottenTomatoes.

Internationally the film earned an estimated $135.5 million which brings its worldwide total to $290.5 million. These numbers will probably shift a little once the official tallies come in.

In second place was Moana giving Disney a one-two punch. That film added $11.7 million to its domestic total bringing it to $161.9 million. In third was Office Christmas Party which added $8.5 million to its domestic total to bring that to $31.5 million after two weeks.

In fourth place was Collateral Beauty which earned a disappointing $7 million. With a budget of $36 million that isn’t a disaster, but it shows how far Will Smith’s star power has dropped. It’ll be a tough road for the film as the audience that would go for it will mostly be focusing on the slate of Oscar films opening up over the month.

Rounding out the top five was Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them which added $5 million to its total to bring its domestic earnings to $207.7 million.

Speaking of Oscar films… Fences opened up in 4 theaters earning $128,000 giving it the second best per-theater average for the weekend.

When it comes to comic adaptations, Doctor Strange added $2 million to its domestic total bringing it to $226.1 million and worldwide it sits at $652.9 million.

This weekend sees a whole bunch of films opening (or going wider) including Passengers, Assassin’s Creed, Why Him?, Sing, and the previously mentioned Fences.

We’ll be back in an hour where we’ll dive into the 2016 comic adaptations even deeper.

Moana Fends off an Office Christmas Party

moana-posterDisney’s Moana held off newcomer Office Christmas Party to three-peat at the box office. The film earned an estimated $18.8 million at the domestic box office this weekend to bring its domestic total to $145 million.

Office Christmas Party debuted in second place bringing in an estimated $17.5 million. With a budget of just $45 million, the film should do fine in the long run. It did about the same amount, $16.4 million, overseas where it debuted in 49 markets.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them dropped to third place adding $10.8 million to its total. The film has now earned $680 million worldwide.

Also dropping one spot was Arrival which added $5.6 million to its total. It came in fourth and last weekend it was third. Domestically the film has earned $81.5 million.

Doctor Strange rounds out the top five. It held on to the fifth position from last week by earning $4.6 million. Domestically the film has brought in $222.4 million. Worldwide the film is at $645.8 million after six weeks. The movie is ninth domestically and seventh worldwide for the Marvel Cinematic Universe (out of 14). We’ll have a greater analysis in two hours of the film and the rest of 2016’s comic adaptations.

Next weekend brings the juggernaut that is Rogue One which will absolutely top the box office, it’s just a question of how much it will earn.

Moana Repeats in First Place During a Slow Movie Weekend

moana-posterIt was a slow post-Thanksgiving weekend and Moana repeated in first place without much as far as new competition. The film earned $28.4 million in its second week. So far the film has grossed $119.9 million domestically after two weeks and $177.4 million worldwide.

In second place was Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them which was second place again. The film added $18.6 million to its domestic total which is at $183.5 million. Worldwide the film is at $607.9 million and with a $180 million budget, that’s pretty solid. Still, it lags far behind other Harry Potter films and has a way to go even without adjusting those films for inflation.

To round out the top five, Arrival improved over last week moving from fifth to third and adding $7.3 million to its domestic total. The film added a bunch of theaters which helps explain the improvement. That and positive word of mouth is helping drive the film. Allied remained in fourth with $7.1 million. The film is a slow burn and its doubtful it’ll make back its $85 million budget. Finally, Doctor Strange caps it off with $6.5 million and dropping from third to fifth. The film sits at $215.3 million domestically and $634.9 million worldwide. We’ll have more in an hour going over the film and other comic films of the year.

There was much as far as new films. Incarnate opened in ninth with just $2.7 million. Believe was #17 with $602,519, Jackie opened in five theaters and earned $275,000, the best per theater average, and finally Things to Come was #33 with $33,090 from 3 theaters.

This coming weekend sees Office Christmas Party, Miss Sloane, and La La Land open.

Moana Rules with $81.1 million Holiday Opening

moana-posterIt was a bit of a mixed weekend as Moana opened in first place. The film earned an estimated $55.5 million over the weekend and an estimated $81.1 million over five days. That’s the second largest Thanksgiving debut. Disney’s Frozen holds the top spot. It bests Toy Story 2 which earned $80.1 million. The film also opened in a few international territories earning an estimated $16.3 million. So far the film has earned $97.4 million.

The audience for Moana was mostly female with 55%, 34% age 12 or under, 43% age 25 and older, and 72% of it made up of families. Audiences gave the film an “A” CinemaScore so it should do well over the next few weeks.

In second place was Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The film earned an estimated $45.1 million to bring its domestic total to $156.2 million. The film also earned $132 million internationally. The film now stands at $473.7 million.

In third place was Doctor Strange which brought in $13.4 million to bring its domestic total to $205.1 million. The film has passed the domestic run of Thor, Ant-Man, Captain America: The First Avenger, and The Incredible Hulk. It’ll pass Thor: The Dark World this week. The film is currently ninth in domestic and international earnings for 2016 and it still has yet to open in Japan which won’t happen until January 2017. We’ll have more insight in an hour.

New film Allied opened in fourth with an estimated $13 million. That’s around the expectations for the film, but it was expected to do about $20 million over the five days and it only did $18 million. In other new films,

In other new films, Bad Santa 2 earned $6.1 million over three days and $9 million over five days. With a budget of just $26 million that’s not horrible, but this franchise is most likely dead after this, barring some Christmas miracle.

Opening in twelfth was Rules Don’t Apply with an estimated $1.6 million for three days and $2.2 million for five days. That’s the worst three-day result for 2016 with just $661 per theater and the sixth worst of all-time with films debuting in over 2,000 theaters.

In other comic films, Officer Downe was released on demand and in a very limited theatrical release. In theaters the film has earned $470 in the two that it has been released in.

Next weekend new horror film Incarnate opens and Oscar hopeful Jackie begins to roll out.

Fantastic Beasts Had a Number 1, But Not a Fantastic Opening

fantastic-beasts-and-where-to-find-them-2016When is a $75 million number one weekend opening not something to go crazy over? When you’re the Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. That film earned an estimated $75 million to come in first place this weekend. That’s the lowest opening ever for the Wizarding World and the last film was five years ago. The average opening is a little over $90 million.

The film earned an “A” CinemaScore and it looks like 55% of the audience was over the age of 35 which would indicate it was likely older Harry Potter fans that showed up for the film and not younger fans.

The film opened Wednesday in international markets and has so far grossed $143.3 million.

In second place was Doctor Strange who was in first place these past two weekends. That film earned an estimated $17.7 million to bring its domestic total to $181.5 million. The film also earned $26 million to its international total to bring that to $390 million. We’ll have more analysis of that film and comic films this year in an hour.

In third was Trolls which earned an estimated $17.5 million, Arrival was fourth with $11.8 million, and Almost Christmas was fifth with $7.04 million.

Two new films debuted in the top ten. The Edge of Seventeen earned an estimated $4.83 million for seventh, and Bleed for This was eighth with $2.36 million.
