That total beats Guardians of the Galaxy which held the previous record of $94.3 million.

The long term run of the film will be interesting as it has just 26% on Rotten Tomatoes as of this post, a B+ Cinemascore, and a 7.1 rating on IMBD. Expect a large drop next weekend and the tune of “success” to turn to “failure” in the media.

In second place was last week’s winner Jason Bourne which earned an estimated $22.7 million. Bad Moms earned an estimated $14.2 million to remain in third place. The Secret Life of Pets remained in fourth with an estimated $11.56 million. Finally, Star Trek Beyond dropped from second to fifth to earn $10.2 million.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows brought in an estimated $130,000 to bring its domestic total to $81.6 million and worldwide total to $237.1 million.

This coming weekend sees the opening of Pete’s Dragon, Sausage Party, and Florence Foster Jenkins.

Star Trek Beyond Soars Into First

The film received positive reviews and got an A- from Cinemascore. It had a reported budget of $185 million.

Coming in second was The Secret Life of Pets with $29.3 million and third was Ghostbusters with $21.6 million.

Next up are new films, Lights Out which did really well with $21.6 million and Ice Age: Collision Course disappointed with $21 million.

In comic book related movie news, Captain America: Civil War continued to earn money with an estimated $108,000. The film has earned $1.151 billion so far.

Secret Life of Pets Repeats while Ghostbusters Comes in Second

The Secret Life of PetsIt was a close race at the top of the box office this past weekend. The Secret Life of Pets came in first place earning an estimated $50.56 million in its second weekend. The film has domestically earned $203 million and $253.95 million worldwide. With a budget of $75 million, it looks like the film will turn a nice profit, so expect a sequel.

The biggest debut of the week, the reboot of Ghostbusters, came in second. The film earned an estimated $46 million. That total has the film meeting expectations and projections and is the best opening for director Paul Feig and Melissa McCarthy. It also earned $19.1 million from three major territories and a few others. The big test now is to see how long its legs are with a budget of $144 million.

In third place was The Legend of Tarzan which earned an estimated $11.1 million, fourth was Finding Dory with an estimated $11.04 million, and fifth was Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates with an estimated $7.5 million.

In comic movie news X-Men: Apocalypse added an estimated $265,000 to its domestic total to bring that to $154.97 million. The film has earned $378.89 million in foreign markets for a worldwide total of $533.86 million. The film may pass 2000’s X-Men as far as unadjusted domestic earning. That film earned $157.3 million. When it comes to adjusted domestic earnings the film also may pass First Class which earned $156 million. Worldwide (unadjusted), the film sits in third and will not be overtaking Days of Future Past to come in second.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows added $260,000 to its domestic total. The film has earned just $80.85 million domestically, $150.3 million in foreign markets for a total of $231.15 million worldwide. The film is far short of 2014’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles which earned $493.3 million worldwide.

Captain America: Civil War is a winner for Marvel and it added $181,000 to its domestic total. The film has earned $406.58 million domestically, $744.4 million in foreign markets and $1.15 billion worldwide.

Next weekend sees the release of Star Trek Beyond which should definitely top the box office. Also Lights Out opens and the film has buzz. The x-factor is Ice Age: Collision Course, and with animated films dominating this year, don’t count this one out.

The Secret Life of Pets Opens with a Record and Dory Finds the Top

The Secret Life of PetsThe Secret Life of Pets topped the box office with an impressive estimated $103.17 million. That’s a record opening for an original animated film. It’s the sxith animated film ever to open with more than $100 million. The film should also do well with an A- CinemaScore. The film also opened in nine territories and has an international total of $42.6 million.

The Legend of Tarzan opened in second barely beating out Finding Dory. The film earned $20.6 million. Finding Dory was third with $20.35 million. Tarzan did have a budget of $180 million so its opening is a bit iffy. The film did have a good word of mouth, so its possible it might have some legs. Finding Dory now stands domestically at $422.58 million making it the top grossing domestic film of the year so far.

In other new films, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates outperformed its expectations bringing in an estimated $16.6 million to come in fourth.

Finally, Captain America: Civil War added $310,000 to its domestic total to bring that to $406.2 million. The film has earned $1.15 billion worldwide.

This coming weekend sees the release of the new Ghostbusters film which likely will top the box office.
