Spider-Man: Far From Home Repeats in First

Spider-Man: Far From Home

In what wasn’t a surprise, Sony‘s Spider-Man: Far From Home took first place again, repeating on last week’s performance. The film brought in an estimated $45.3 million which is a 51% drop from the previous week. Domestically the film has earned $274.5 million.

Internationally, Spider-Man: Far From Home added $100 million to bring that total to $572.5 million. When it comes to the international total, the film is in first place, beating Spider-Man 3‘s $554.3 million.

Globally the film has earned $847 million after 17 days. The movie is $33.2 million behind 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming and $43.9 million behind 2007’s Spider-Man 3 for worldwide total.

In second place was Toy Story 4 which dropped 39% and earned an estimated $20.7 million. Domestically, the film has earned $36.4 million. Internationally, the film added $48.1 million for an overseas total that now stands at $424.7 million. Worldwide the film has earned $771.1 million. The film’s final key market is Germany where it opens August 15.

In third place was the new film Crawl. It fell just shy of estimates earning $12 million. The film played to an audience that was 51% male and 64% aged 25 or older. It received a “B” CinemaScore.

In fourth place was Stuber which opened with an estimated $8 million. The film received a “B” CinemaScore with an audience that was 56% male and 61% aged 25 or older.

Rounding out the top five was Yesterday with an estimated $6.8 million. That’s a drop of 33% in its third week. The film domestically has earned $48.3 million. Also, the film added $7.8 million internationally from 42 markets to bring that total to $32.2 million and a worldwide total of $80.5 million.

In other comic film stats…

Avengers: Endgame came in at #12 earning an estimated $1.7 million to bring its domestic total to $851.2 million. It seems like the film is struggling to take the worldwide all-time total despite the “re-release,” but has gotten closer and now stands less than $8 million away from that record.

Dark Phoenix continues to slide coming in at #25 the past weekend. The film added an estimated $189,000 to its domestic total to bring that to $65.1 million after six weeks.

We’ll be back in an hour for a deeper dive in to 2019’s comic film adaptations!

Spider-Man: Far From Home Opens with a Record $185 Million and Wins the Weekend Box Office

Spider-Man: Far From Home

There was no doubt Spider-Man: Far From Home would win the weekend box office. The film had the largest six-day opening ever for a Tuesday release with $185.1 million. The film helped the top 12 films outperform the same weekend last year, the first time in four weeks this has happened.

The film earned about $91 million in its first three days and then topped that over the weekend bringing in another $93.6 million. That’s the 22nd largest six-day performance of all-time. It also earned the largest Tuesday opened day ever and second widest opening ever with 4,634 locations.

Far from Home is outpacing Spider-Man: Homecoming for the six days by over $30 million. It shouldn’t be a surprise the movie is a hit as it earned an “A” CinemaScore from opening crowds and a high rating online. The opening weekend crowd was 60% male and 42% aged 25 or older.

Internationally, the film earned $244 million from 66 markets to bring its overseas total to $395 million so far. Already the movie has earned $580.1 million worldwide off of a $160 million budget.

In second place was Toy Story 4 for its third weekend. The film earned an estimated $34.4 million to bring its domestic total to $306.6 million. Internationally, the film earned over $43 million to bring that total to $343.4 million with a worldwide total of almost $650 million.

Yesterday dipped just 37% to come in third in its second weekend. The film earned an estimated $10.8 million to bring its domestic total to $36.8 million. It also added seven new international markets to bring that total to 35. There it earned nearly $8 million to bring the foreign box office total to over $20 million and a worldwide total of $57 million since opening.

Annabelle Comes Home came in fourth with an estimated $9.8 million. Domestically the film has earned $50.2 million after 12 days. Internationally, the film added over $20 million from 9 markets to bring its overseas total to nearly $85 million. Its worldwide total is $134.8 million so far off of a budget somewhere in the $27-32 million range.

Rounding out the top five was the live-action version f Aladdin which earned an estimated $7.6 million domestically after seven weeks. That total now stands at $320.8 million. Internationally, the film earned $16.2 million for a foreign box office total of $600.9 million. Worldwide, the film has earned $921.7 million so far.

Other comic films…

Avengers: Endgame dropped 49.3% to come in at #9. The movie added $3.1 million to its domestic total to bring that to $847.9 million. The move to re-release the film with an extended scene gave the movie a boost but may not put it over the top of all-time worldwide box office leader of Avatar.

Dark Phoenix came in at #15 with an estimated $439,000 to bring its domestic total to $64.6 million.

We’ll be back in an hour for a deeper dive into 2019, and maybe 2018’s films based on comics.

Toy Story 4 Repeats for the Weekend

Toy Story 4

Without much as far as competition, Toy Story 4 easily took first place again at the weekend box office. The film dropped 52.1% in its second weekend bringing in an estimated $57.9 million. That drop was similar to the second weekend drop of Toy Story 2 which was 51.6% and worse than Toy Story 3 which dropped 46.2%. Those films went on to earn $245.9 million and $415 million domestically (not adjusted for inflation).

Domestically the film has earned $236.9 million. Internationally, the film has earned $259.6 million for a worldwide total of $496.5 million after two weeks. It’s already the fourth highest grossing domestic film of the year.

Annabelle Comes Home was second place with $20.4 million falling very short of the studios’ estimate of $30 million. The third film in the Annabelle series, those films opened with $37 and $35 million. The film did open on Wednesday with a Tuesday preview so all together the film earned $31.2 million for its run so far. The movie has also earned $45 million internationally so far for a worldwide total of $76.2 million.

In third place was Yesterday which earned an estimated $17 million from a $26 million budget. The film overperformed a bit with most thinking it’d earn between $11-14 million. For a summer whose story seems to be movies underperforming, this is a welcome surprise. The $17 million is on the higher side of expectations some projected. The film also has also earned $7.7 million at the foreign box office for a worldwide total of $24.7 million.

Aladdin came in fourth place with $9.3 million to bring its domestic total to $305.9 million. That was right in line with predictions. Add in its $568.3 million at the foreign box office, the film has earned $874.2 million worldwide off of its $183 million budget.

Rounding out the top five was The Secret Life of Pets 2 which earned an estimated $7.1 million. Its domestic total now stands at $131.2 million. That total is higher than the $6 million predicted. Internationally, the film has earned $91.8 million for a worldwide total of $223 million off of an $80 million budget.

In comic movie news…

Avengers: Endgame got a boost expanding into 2,025 locations, an increase of 1,040. The film added an introduction from director Anthony Russo, an unfinished deleted scene, and a sneak peek of Spider-Man: Far From Home. estimates had the film earning $2.5 million. It exceeded that, earning an estimated $5.5 million. That’s an increase of 178.5% from the previous week.

Domestically, the film has earned $841.3 million. Internationally, the film stands at $1.920 billion for a worldwide total of $2.761 billion. The “rerelease” is a ploy to topple Avatar as the top grossing film of all time (though it still wouldn’t be when you take into account inflation). The move has closed the gap though and stands now just $26.7 million away from becoming the “top grossing” film worldwide.

Dark Phoenix continues its slide coming in at #13. The film added $1.7 million to its domestic total bringing that to $63.6 million after four weeks.

We’ll be back in an hour for a deeper dive into this year’s comic adaptations at the box office (and any changes to last year’s).

Toy Story 4 Dominates the Weekend Box Office with a Franchise Record

Toy Story 4

Toy Story 4 crushed the competition and came in first at the weekend box office. The film opened with an estimated $118 million but fell short of the $140+ million expectation set by the studio. That continues a summer of missed expectation. Still, that’s a franchise-best beating Toy Story 3‘s $110.3 million opening in 2010. It’s the fourth largest animated opening ever and the third largest opening weekend of the year. Disney now has the top four openings of 2019.

The film received an “A” CinemaScore from opening day audiences and doesn’t have any real competition until mid-July when The Lion King opens. The film’s audience was 52% female and 45% of the crowd was aged 25 or older.

Internationally the film brought in $120 million from 37 markets, about 64% of the overall marketplace. The gave it a $238 million worldwide launch.

Child’s Play came in second place with an estimated $14 million. It was expected to earn about $16-18 million before the weekend and Thursday night previews of $1.65 million suggested it might be on the higher end of that. But, with a “C+” Cinemascore, there’s a good chance word of mouth is hurting this one. The audience was 52% male and 61% were over the age of 25.

In third place was Aladdin which earned an estimated $12.2 million bringing its domestic total to $287.5 million. The film also added almost $33 million internationally for a foreign total of $522.6 million and a worldwide total of $810.1 million.

Men in Black International dropped 64% in its second weekend. It brought in $10.8 million to bring the domestic total to $52 million after ten days. Internationally the film added $30 million to bring that total to $129.4 million and $182.1 million worldwide.

Rounding out the top five was The Secret Life of Pets 2 which dropped 58%. That film earned an estimated $10.3 million. Domestically it has earned $117.6 million. It also added $10.8 million internationally to bring that total to $77.1 million. Worldwide it has earned $194.7 million.

When it comes to comic films…

Dark Phoenix dropped to #9 from last week’s #5. The film earned $3.6 million, a drop of 61.5% as it shed 1,1667 theaters. Domestically, the film has earned $60.2 million after 3 weeks.

Avengers: Endgame came in at #13 earning an estimated $1.9 million after 9 weeks. The film has earned $834.5 million domestically.
