Straight Outta Compton Takes First for the Third Week in a Row

Straight Outta ComptonThe competition was rather week, which had Straight Outta Compton easily sail to keep first place at the weekend box-office. The film has been in first place for three weeks in a row, in what shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. It was a slow weekend though with an estimated $68.8 million earned by the top 12 films, and that’s 22% lower than last year’s $88.2 million, and even that was an off year.

Straight Outta Compton earned an estimated $13.2 million which kept it number one, beating out War Room which earned around $11 million. In third place was another debut, No Escape, which did escape with an estimated $10.3 million. That bumped Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation into fourth.

In comic and geek related movie news, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. was in sixth place with an estimated $4.4 million. Hitman: Agent 47 has already been assassinated earning just $3.9 million in its second week. Jurassic World keeps eating dollars adding $3.1 million to its impressive totals. Minions keeps multiplying adding $2.9 million to its domestic total. Ant-Man came in at tenth earning $3.1 million. Fantastic Four continues with a non-fantastic earning, bringing in $1.7 million. The Diary of a Teenage Girl added $425,000 to its total. And finally Terminator: Genisys brought in $190,000.

For the year, Jurassic World reigns supreme domestically having earned $643.1 million. Avengers: Age of Ultron is second with $457.5 million. Furious 7 is third with $351 million. Inside Out is fourth with $344.5 million, and Minions is fifth with $324.8 million.

Worldwide grosses are the same movies, but a different order. Jurassic World rules with $1.6367 billion. Furious 7 is second with $1.5117 billion. Avengers: Age of Ultron is third with $1.4013 billion. Minions has crossed the billion line and stands currently at $1.0189, and  Inside Out is fifth with $702.5 million.

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.

Straight Outta Compton Tops Chart, Man From U.N.C.L.E. Stumbles

Straight Outta ComptonStraight Outta Compton ruled the weekend box-office coming in at number one with an impressive estimated earning of $56.1 million. It knocked Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation out of the top spot into second place where it added an estimated $17 million to its total. Another high profile debut, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. didn’t fair so well, earning just $13.535 million for its first week at the domestic box-office.

Straight Outta Compton looks to have debuted as the sixth best August opening of all time, and adds to a stellar year for its distributor Universal which has crossed the $2 billion mark at the box-office on Saturday. It beats the previous record holder Warner Bros. by four months. They hit that mark December 25, 2009.

When it comes to comic movies Fantastic Four dropped to fourth, losing 68.9% from the previous week. While that might seem like a lot, it’s not the worst for a movie headlined by a Marvel character. Elektra, X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Hulk all did worse. Fantastic Four added $8 million to its total to bring its domestic earning up to $41.96 million. The film has earned $102.1 million worldwide so far.

Ant-Man was in sixth place adding an estimated $5.5 million to its domestic total. The film has earned $157.6 million domestically and $336.5 million worldwide. The film still sits in second to last as far as earnings for Marvel Cinematic Universe films.

The Diary of a Teenage Girl which is based off a graphic novel expanded its opening to 22 theaters and earned $112,000. The film earned a lot of buzz at Sundance and was purchased by Sony Pictures Classics for $2 million. The film has earned a total for $195,000 so far in its two weeks.

For the yearly totals, Jurassic World still reigns supreme. The film is at the top of the domestic box-office grosses with $637.9 million. It’s still earning a decent chunk, so that number has a ways to go before it’s done. It’s followed by Avengers: Age of Ultron in second with $457.2 million, Furious 7 in third with $351 million, Inside Out in fourth with $339.4 million and Minions rounds out the top five with $313 million.

The worldwide grosses are a little different with Jurassic World still on top with $1.6062 billion, and Furious 7 in second with $1.5117 billion. Avengers: Age of Ultron has earned $1.3988 billion to be in third place. Minions is fourth with $957.5 million, and Inside Out is fifth with $639.5 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.

Globally things are different with Jurassic World at $1.5595 billion to be in first, Furious 7 is second with $1.5117 billion, Avengers: Age of Ultron is third with $1.3985 billion, Minions is fourth at $854.7 milllion, and Inside Out is fifth with $602.3 million.
