Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Dominates with $145 million Domestic Debut

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 dominated the weekend box office earning an estimated $145 million which beat the original film’s release by 53.78%. That’s the largest jump for a second film released in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (Captain America: Civil War was an 88.5% increase from Captain America: Winter Soldier).

The film earned an “A” CinemaScore with a 56% male audience, 22% were 25-years-old or younger, and 72% of the audience were adults, with 9% teenagers.

Internationally, the film brought in an estimated $123.8 million for the weekend giving it an international total of $282.6 million after 13 days. Total, the film has earned $427.6 million worldwide.

In second place was The Fate of the Furious which brought in an estimated $8.5 million to bring its domestic total to $207 million and worldwide total to $1.16 billion.

In third place was The Boss Baby which moved up from fourth. That film earned an estimated $6.2 million and $156.7 million domestically and $434.9 million worldwide.

Fourth place was held by How to Be a Latin Lover which earned an estimaed$5.23 million to bring its domestic total to  $20.6 million.

Finally, Beauty and the Beast moved from sixth to fifth adding an estimated $4.9 million to its total. Domestically the film has earned $487.6 million and worldwide it has earned $1.19 billion.

When it comes to other comic adaptations….

Smurfs: The Lost Village was #10 adding $1.8 to its domestic total to stand at $40.6 million and $171.3 million worldwide.

Logan was #21 adding $330,000 to its total which is $225.1 million domestically and $606.2 million worldwide.

Finally, Ghost in the Shell added $110,000 to its domestic total which stands at $40.2 million and $167.6 million worldwide.

We’ll be back in an hour for further analysis of comic movie adaptations.

The Fate of the Furious Remains in First with New Films Going 2, 3, 4. Guardians Already Tops $101 million.

The Fate of the Furious raced into first for the third week in a row adding an estimated $19.4 million to its total. The film after three weeks has earned $192.7 million and $1.06 billion worldwide. The film is currently in second place for the year behind Beauty and the Beast which has earned $1.143 billion so far. It’ll be interesting to see if it can catch up and pass that film to take the top spot. Furious 7 crossed the billion mark in 17 days and this film was pretty close to that. That film would go on to earn $1.5 billion by the time it was done.

The next three films were all debuts.

How to be a Latin Lover earned an estimated $12 million to come in second. That was earned in just 1,118 theaters giving an average of $10,750 per theater. The film received an “A” CinemaScore and had an audience that was 55% female, 75% 25 years or older, and 89% were Hispanic. It’s another example of a film having a specific audience and that audience delivering solid earnings.

In third was what can only be considered a shocker, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion which earned an estimated $10.1 million. That film only played in 425 theaters which means an average of $23,855 per theater. That’s the largest opening for an Indian film domestically.

The Circle came in third with an estimated $9.3 million. That has to be disappointing considering the star power of Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, John Boyega, and Karen Gillan. The film received a “D+” CinemaScore so don’t expect it to do much better going forward. The audience was 62% female and 44% between the ages of 18 and 34 which may bode well for the drawing power of Watson and Boyega who were prominent in the advertising. The film cost $18 million and acquired for $8 million so it’ll likely do fine in the end.

Rounding out the top five was The Boss Baby which added $9.1 million to its domestic total bringing that to $148.5 million. The film is just shy of $400 million, it has earned $396.6 million worldwide so far.

When it comes to “comic adaptations”….

Smurfs: The Lost Village added $3.3 million to its domestic total bringing the film to $37.7 million domestically and $117.8 million in foreign box offices for a total of $155.5 million. That’s an increase of about $22 million since last week.

Logan brought in $760,000 domestically for its domestic total to reach $224.5 million.The film has earned $607.7 million worldwide so far. That’s about a $1 million increase from last week.

Ghost in the Shell added $430,000 to its domestic total bringing that to $39.9 million. The film has earned $166.1 million worldwide. That’s a $4 million increase from the previous week.

The LEGO Batman Movie still is earning bringing in about $1 million since last week. And finally, Wilson looks like its earned no money since last week.

Opening domestically this week is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 which is sure to be the top film at the box office. The film has opened in 58% of the international market this past weekend where it earned an estimated $101.2 million. The film was in first place in almost all of its markets.

We’ll be back in an hour for a deeper dive into the numbers for this comic adaptations.

Furious, Boss Baby, and Beauty Repeat 1 2 3 at the Box Office

This past weekend’s box office looked a lot like the previous weekend with The Fate of the Furious repeating in first place earning an estimated $38.7 million. The film has earned $163.6 million domestically. Internationally is where the big story is for the film where it earned $163.4 million in 65 territories this past weekend to bring it to $744.8 million. The movie in two weeks has earned $908.4 million. The film will hit the billion mark in the next week and it will debut in Japan on April 28.

The question for the film is how quickly will it pass Beauty and the Beast to become the top grossing film worldwide for the year and if it can pass the last film’s worldwide gross of $1.5 billion?

The Boss Baby repeated and came in second place earning an estimated $12.8 million to bring its domestic total to $137 million. Worldwide the film has earned $358.1 million.

In third place is this year’s top-earning film so far both domestically and internationally Beauty and the Beast. The film brought in an estimated $10 million to bring it domestic total to $471.1 million. The film opened in its final international market, Japan, where it earned an estimated $12.8 million. Worldwide the film has earned $1.1 billion.

New film Born in China debuted in fourth place where it earned $5.1 million. The film has earned $9.5 million in foreign markets bringing its total to $14.6 million.

Rounding out the top five was Going in Style which brought in $5 million domestically to bring its total to $31.8 million and $50.9 million worldwide so far.

When it comes to comic films, Smurfs: The Lost Village was #6 and earned an estimated $4.9 million.The film opened in China with an estimated $11.1 million there. That helped it cross $100 million at the foreign box office and altogether the film has earned $133.7 million.

Logan earned an estimated $950,000 to come in at #18. The film has earned $223.4 million domestically, $382.8 million for a total of $606.2 million worldwide.

Just behind Logan was Ghost in the Shell at #19 which earned an estimated $900,000. The film so far has earned $39.1 million domestically and $123.1 million at the foreign box office for a total of $162.2 million. I thought the film would cross the $200 million mark and double its budget, but it doesn’t look like that’ll happen.

Wilson continues to trickle in dollars earning about $3,000 over the past week and The LEGO Batman Movie brought in about $1.2 million over the past week.

We’ll have final look at 2016’s comic adaptations and how they stack up to year’s past as we begin to focus on 2017’s comic adaptations.

Fate of the Furious Debuts with Record International and Worldwide Opening

Every inch counts and Fate of the Furious learned that this weekend with an opening of just over $100 million. The film earned an estimated $100.2 million in its debut weekend to take first place by quite a few miles.

With numbers like that, it should be no surprise a ninth film will be out in 2019 and tenth film in 2021. The film is already in fourth place for 2017’s worldwide grosses and ninth domestically. It should quickly vault into second internationally after this week. After that, it’s a race to see if it can top Beauty and the Beast which is in first place both domestically and internationally and has earned $1.04 billion so far.

In second place was The Boss Baby which earned an estimated $15.5 million. The film has earned $116.3 million domestically and $122.6 million in foreign box offices for a total of $238.9 million.
