Top Gun: Maverick returns to first inching ahead of Elvis

Top Gun Maverick

Top Gun: Maverick had a hell of a week returning to first place at the weekend box office based on initial numbers. It had an estimated gross of a little over $30.5 million to bring its domestic total to $521.7 million. With the film’s international gross of $484.7 million, the movie has grossed over $1.006 billion worldwide.

Elvis opened up in second place with an even $30.5 million. Internationally, the film grossed $20 million delivering an opening weekend of $50.5 million.

Jurassic World Dominion slipped to third place grossing $26.4 million to bring its domestic total to $302.8 million. Over the week, the film grossed about $71.5 million at the international box office. There it has now grossed $443.9 million. Worldwide, the film has grossed $746.7 million.

The Black Phone debuted with $23.4 million to come in fourth. Internationally, the film grossed $12.5 million. Worldwide, it has grossed $35.8 million.

Lightyear came in fifth place dropping from last weekend’s second and tumbling 65.1%. The film earned an estimated $17.7 million to bring its domestic gross to $88.8 million.

In comic film news…

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness came in sixth place earning $1.7 million and bringing its domestic total to $409.2 million. Internationally, the film has grossed $537.8 million. Worldwide, the film has grossed a little over $947 million. The film is inching towards $1 billion, will it cross the line?

Morbius is finally staked at the box office. The film’s domestic gross is $73.9 million. Internationally, the film remained steady with $90 million. Worldwide, the film has grossed $163.9 million (about a trillion Morbinbucks).

Initial numbers has 23 films earning $133,359,398 from 25,723 theaters. That’s a slight dip from last weekend’s 53 films which earned $164,517,369 from 22,357 theaters. Still, it’s another strong weekend for 2022. The average earning was $5,184.44 this past weekend, slightly less than the previous weekend’s $7,358.65.

Jurassic World: Dominion continues to devour as Lightyear barely launches

Jurassic World: Dominion

It’s no surprise that Jurassic World: Dominion was once again atop the box office. The film earned an estimated $58.7 million lifting its domestic gross to $249.8 million. Over the week, the film also grossed $126.6 million at the international box office. There it has grossed $372.4 million. Worldwide, the film has grossed $622.2 million after two weeks at the box office. Will it cross the billion mark like previous films? We’ll have to wait and see but it’ll be a fight to get there.

In second place was Lightyear which debuted with $51 million. Many on the culture war right are pointing to the amount as a rejection of “woke” Disney and the lack of Tim Allen. Allen has a show coming up on Disney+ and the film’s Buzz, voiced by Chris Evans, is a different Buzz than from Toy Story. The likely issue is, who is the film for? Those who grew up on Toy Story are adults now and kids have no connection to the character. Add in a new Jurassic Park and Top Gun and it’s a competition for nostalgia at theaters. It’s an odd choice for a theatrical release as a whole. Internationally, the film grossed $34.6 million to deliver a worldwide total of $85.6 million.

Top Gun: Maverick continues to the danger zone adding an estimated $44 million to its domestic total bringing that to $466.2 million. Over the week, the film also grossed $65.3 million internationally to bring that to $885.2 million.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness came in fourth place earning $4.2 million and bringing its domestic total to $405.1 million. Over the week, the film grossed about $5 million internationally to bring that to $942.5 million. The film is inching towards $1 billion, will it cross the line?

Rounding out the top five was The Bob’s Burgers Movie an estimated $1.1 million. Domestically, the film has grossed $29.8 million. Internationally, the film grossed about $260,000 over the week to bring that to $2.1 million. Worldwide, the film has grossed $31.8 million.

In comic film news…

Morbius is finally staked at the box office. The film’s domestic gross is $73.9 million. Internationally, the film remained steady with $90 million. Worldwide, the film has grossed $163.9 million (about a trillion Morbinbucks).

The Batman looks like it remained steady domestically having earned $369.3 million. Internationally the film looks like it has ended its run and now stands at $401 million. The film currently stands at $770.3 million.

Initial numbers have 53 films earning $164,517,369 from 22,357 theaters. That’s a dip of about 25% from last weekend’s 51 films which earned $214,836,326 from 25,815 theaters. Still, it’s another strong weekend for 2022. The average earning was $7,358.65 this past weekend, slightly less than the previous weekend’s $8,322.15.
