Box Office RESULTS: 06/12/2018




Leading the weekend charge is Warner Bros and Village Roadshow's Ocean's 8, topping industry expectations and delivering the largest opening within the franchise (not adjusted for inflation). At the same time, A24's Hereditary smashed tracking expectations and even outperformed Mojo's lofty, pre-weekend forecast to finish within the top five, earning A24 its largest opening ever. Unfortunately, Global Road's Hotel Artemis, the weekend's third new wide release, struggled to find an opening weekend audience while Universal and Amblin Entertainment launched Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom internationally this weekend where it grossed over $150 million, two weeks ahead of its North American release.
With an estimated $41.5 million, WB's Ocean's 8 topped the weekend box office and outperformed pre-weekend industry expectations, which anticipated an opening in the mid-thirties, though fell a little short of Mojo's pre-weekend forecast, which saw potential for a debut over $45 million. That said, the $41.5 million debut is a solid start for the $70 million production, which will now hope to holdover well amid upcoming competition which includes Incredibles 2 next weekend and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom the following week. The last two films in the Ocean's franchise averaged a 3.2x multiplier, which would put Ocean's 8's domestic run over $130 million should it follow suit.
Ocean's 8 received a "B+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences with exits showing the audience make up as 69% female and 69% aged 25 years or older. That said, the film played quite well to younger audiences, of which 11% were 18 years or younger and gave the film an "A" CinemaScore.
Internationally, Ocean's 8 kicked things off in 16 markets bringing in an estimated $12.2 million for a $53.7 million global launch. The opening included an estimated $4.7 million in Australia, $2.6 million in Mexico and $1.7 million in Brazil. Looking ahead the film will open this week in France and South Korea on June 13 followed by openings in Germany (Jun 21), Russia (Jun 21), UK (Jun 22), Spain (Jul 6), Italy (Jul 26) and Japan (Aug 10).
Disney and Lucasfilms's Solo: A Star Wars Story finished in second with an estimated $15.15 million, pushing the film's domestic cume just over $176 million as it begins its third week in release. Internationally the film is already puttering out, adding just $11.3 million, bringing its overseas cume to $136.1 million for a global tally that now stands at $312.2 million with a June 29 opening in Japan left on the release calendar.
Deadpool 2 finished in third with an estimated $13.65 million as its cume blossoms to nearly $280 million. Internationally, the film added an estimated $18.5 million, pushing the film's overseas cume to $376.6 million for a global tally that now tops $655 million.
In fourth is the excellent start for A24's Hereditary, which brought in an estimated $13 million this weekend. Prior to the film's opening, tracking expectations were in the high single digits, but Mojo's pre-weekend forecast saw much greater potential, anticipating a debut $12 million or higher. Budgeted at a reported $10 million, Hereditary was not only A24's widest release, debuting in 2,964 theaters, the $13 million debut is the studio's largest opening by a wide margin, topping the $8.8 million opening for The Witch in 2016. The film did receive a disappointing "D+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, however A24's The Witch received a meager "C-" before ending its run with over $25 million on a $4 million budget. Hereditary played to an audience that was 58% male vs. 42% female this weekend with 74% of the overall audience coming in under 34 years of age.
Rounding out the top five is Disney and Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War with an estimated $6.8 million, pushing the film's cume over $650 million domestically, ending the weekend at $654.7 million. The global blockbuster is now just shy of $2 million worldwide after adding another $10.9 million internationally, finishing the weekend with $1.998 billion globally. The film will soon be only the fourth film to ever top $2 billion worldwide.
It isn't until eighth position that we find Global Road's Hotel Artemis which brought in a disappointing $3.15 million from 2,407 locations. The performance isn't as bad as Action Point's debut last weekend, but it isn't good and the "C-" CinemaScore isn't helping matters. The film played to an audience that was 54% male vs. 46% female of which 63% were over the age of 25.
Elsewhere in the top ten, STX's Adrift dipped a disappointing 56.5% for a sixth place finish with an estimated $5 million for a domestic cume that now stands at $21.7 million as it begins its second weekend. With the release of Ocean's 8 as well as the continued strong performance of Paramount's Book Club it seems there just wasn't enough audience left for the romantic survival drama.
Speaking of Book Club, the film brought in an estimated $4.2 million this weekend, pushing its cume to $56.8 million for a multiplier that continues to grow and is currently 4.2x its $13.5 million opening weekend. Paramount acquired distribution rights for the film in the US/Canada, France and UK for $10 million
In limited release, Focus debuted the Mister Rogers documentary Won't You be My Neighbor in 29 theaters with an estimated $470k for a $16,207 per theater average. The film has received rave reviews and will expand into ~100 theaters next weekend. Additionally, Well Go's Believer opened with an estimated $144k from 32 theaters ($4,500 PTA); Gunpowder & Sky's Hearts Beat Loud debuted with an estimated $74,053 in four theaters ($18,513 PTA); and Gravitas's Half the Picture opened with an estimated $7,529 from one theater.
Finally, Universal launched the Jurassic World sequel Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom in 48 overseas markets this weekend, two weeks ahead of the film's domestic debut, where it grossed an estimated $151.1 million. The film topped the charts in all 48 markets and included the studio's largest openings all-time in Hong Kong ($4.3m) and South Korea ($27.2m). Additional openings included $19.9 million in the UK & Ireland as well as France ($10m), Spain ($9.5m), Germany ($9.1m), Taiwan ($8.4m), Russia ($8m), India ($7.9m), Indonesia ($5.2m), Thailand ($4.7m), Italy ($4.5m), Malaysia ($4.1m), Philippines ($4m), Singapore ($2.9m) and Netherlands ($2.6m). The film will hit theaters in North America on June 22 and will continue to roll-out in in 21 more overseas territories over the next month, including China on June 15, Australia and Brazil on June 21, Mexico on June 22 and Japan on July 13.

Box Office RESULTS: 'Solo' Slumps in Second Weekend While 'RBG' and 'Overboard' Reach Studio Milestones





There were no big surprises this weekend as Disney and Lucasfilms's Solo: A Star Wars Story suffered a steep drop following a disappointing debut and the week's new releases made hardly a dent. STX's Adrift led the way, though fell short of expectations, while BH Tilt's micro-budgeted feature Upgrade delivered solid results based on its budget and expectations. If there was a "big" surprise it came by way of Paramount's Action Point, which wasn't expected to do much to begin with, but flopped to the tune of just $2.3 million from 2,032 theaters. Meanwhile, a couple milestones were reached for both Magnolia and Pantelion on the backs of strong runs for both RBG and Overboard respectively.
With an estimated $29.29 million, Disney and Lucasfilms's Solo: A Star Wars Story dipped 65% this weekend, a result that was to be expected following the film's steady decline during the week after its disappointing debut last weekend. The film's domestic cume ended the weekend just shy of $150 million. Internationally, Solo brought in an estimated $30.3 million for an overseas total that now stands at $115.3 million and a global cume totaling $264.2 million.
Fox and Marvel's Deadpool 2 delivered a second place finish with an estimated $23.3 million, pushing the film's domestic cume just shy of $255 million as it enters its third week in release. Additionally, the film climbed back to the top of the international charts this weekend, bringing in an estimated $41.5 million, pushing its overseas cume to $344 million for a global tally just shy of $600 million, moving into the top 150 all-time. The film's international performance this weekend was led by a $5.5 million debut in Japan.
In third, STX's survival drama Adrift brought in an estimated $11.5 million from 3,015 locations. This puts the debut performance for the $35 million production on par with pre-weekend comps including McFarland, USA and Everything, Everything and just ahead of The Mountain Between Us. One difference between those films and Adrift, however, is Adrift's "B" CinemaScore compared to the "A-" earned by Mountain and Everything, as well as the "A" for McFarland. All told, Adrift could struggle to reach $30 million domestically as it must contend with a continued barrage of summer releases.
Exit polling shows Adrift skewed female, playing to an audience that was 62% female vs. 38% male. Of the audience 19% were 18-years-old or under, though 69% of the overall audience was aged 25 or older, which could mean the audience for this one is a bit too niche to deliver too long a run in a crowded summer marketplace.
Disney and Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War brought in an estimated $10.37 million, landing in fourth position as it kicks off its sixth weekend in release with a domestic cume that now stands at $642.8 million. Internationally, the film added another $24.3 million this weekend, pushing its overseas cume to $1.33 billion for a global tally that is now just ~$35 million shy of becoming only the fourth film to have ever topped $2 billion worldwide.
Paramount's Book Club rounded out the top five with an estimated $6.8 million, pushing the film's domestic cume to $47 million after 17 days in release.
Just outside the top five we find BH Tilt's Upgrade with an estimated $4.46 million debut. The micro-budgeted feature surpassed Mojo's pre-weekend expectations as it took advantage of the best reviews among the new titles this weekend and is on track for a solid run, possibly topping $10 million.
Exit polling was very positive for Upgrade with 46% of the overall audience giving it a definite recommend, scoring best with younger males — the core demographic for the film — with 90% rating it excellent or very good. Overall, 76% of the audience was 25 years or older while 64% of the audience was male vs. 36% female.
It isn't until ninth place that we find Paramount's Action Point. Led by Johnny Knoxville, the $19 million production brought in a mere $2.3 million from 2,032 theaters, ranking among the worst openings ever for a film debuting in 2,000+ locations. Overall, the audience was 67% male with 50% of the audience coming in 25 years or older.
Rounding out the top ten is Overboard, which brought in an estimated $1.975 million for a domestic total of $45.5 million, topping the $44.46 million for Instructions Not Included to become the highest grossing release for Lionsgate's Pantelion label.

Box Office RESULTS: 'Solo' isn't Flying So High, Delivering Soft Memorial Day Weekend Debut



 
 
 
Disney and Lucasfilms's Solo: A Star Wars Story topped the Memorial Day holiday weekend box office, but the film fell well short of expectations, raising a few valid questions. Was it too soon to release another Star Wars movie five months after the last installment and was the competition just too stiff from the likes of Deadpool 2 and Disney's own Avengers: Infinity War?
With an estimated $83.3 million over the three-day weekend, Solo: A Star Wars Story is the weekend's #1 film and while Disney is currently anticipating a $101 million, the question remains as to whether it will be able to bring in enough to reach $100 million over the four-day holiday frame. Disney entered the weekend projecting a performance anywhere from $130-150 million for the four-day weekend and with a reported $300 million price tag before prints and advertising this weekend's performance is extremely disappointing.
While competition from Deadpool 2 and Avengers: Infinity War certainly played a role in Solo's struggles, the small, five month window between the December release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Solo didn't help matters. Disney released the previous three Star Wars films in December, giving each a year's worth of breathing room, this was the first attempt at a summer start and had the price tag and expectations not been so high perhaps the smaller performance wouldn't appear to be such an issue, but as it stands this would appear to be a failure from a theatrical standpoint.
One caveat to that point is the live-action blockbuster landscape is relatively wide open between now and June 22 when Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom hits theaters. While Solo, Avengers and Deadpool will continue to fight for holdover audiences, should Solo hold on well next weekend it could slightly improve its position domestically. At this time, however, a $205-230 million domestic performance looks likely and its international debut isn't helping matters.
Internationally, Solo brought in a meager $65 million from virtually the entire international marketplace with Japan left as the lone major market yet to see release. Leading the way was the UK with $10.3m followed by China ($10.1m), Australia ($5.0m), Germany ($4.3m), France ($3.9m), Russia ($3.6m), Spain ($2.6m), Mexico ($2.5m), Italy ($2.2m), Brazil ($1.3m), Sweden ($1.3m) and Korea ($1.1m). The film will open in Croatia and Trinidad next weekend before opening in Japan on June 29.
For some perspective, Solo's domestic three-day debut was just 54% of the $155 million opening for Rogue One, its international performance wasn't even half of Rogue's $134.9 million overseas opening and that was without opening in South Korea and China. The top three markets for Solo compared to Rogue One show the UK opening was 48% of Rogue's debut, China was a third and Australia's opening was 46% of Rogue's. It will be interesting to see where the film goes from here as a worldwide performance anywhere from $525-575 million might be where this one ends up.
In exit polling, Solo received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, the first of the Disney-released Star Wars films to not receive an "A". Audiences were 58% male and 64% of the audience was over the age of 25.
Fox and Marvel's Deadpool 2 finished in second place with an estimated $42.7 million, dropping a hefty 66% in its second weekend. The film is expected to deliver a $53.5 million four-day weekend pushing its domestic cume a couple million shy of $220 million. Internationally, Deadpool 2 nearly topped Solo in its second weekend with an estimated $57 million, pushing the film's overseas cume just shy of $280 million for a global tally totaling $487.1 million. The film opens in Japan on June 1.
Disney and Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War finished in third, bringing in an estimated $17 million for the three-day. The film is looking at a $21 million four-day performance which will push its domestic cume over $627 million and move it up two spots on the all-time domestic chart, landing in sixth just ahead of 2012's The Avengers ($623.3m)*.
Internationally, Infinity War added $32.5 million for an international total that now stands at $1.283 billion and a global cume topping $1.9 billion, maintaining its position as the fourth largest global release of all-time.
Finishing in fourth is Paramount's Book Club with an estimated $9.4 million for the three-day and looking at a solid $12 million for the four-day weekend. The film continues to play well to its target demographic, as its domestic cume pushes toward $35 million after 11 days in release.
Rounding out the top five is Warner Bros. and New Line's Life of the Party with an estimated $5.1 million for the three-day weekend and looking at a four-day performance around $6.5 million for a domestic cume just over $40 million after 18 days in release.
Outside the top five, Global Road's Show Dogs fell much harder than expected. The family-friendly feature dipping 49% in its second weekend, pulling in an estimated $3 million for the three-day and expected to deliver $4.1 million for the holiday frame. The film's domestic cume will end just a bit shy of $12 million after eleven days in release.
Paramount's A Quiet Place finished ninth with an estimated $2.2 million for the three-day and $2.7 million for the four-day, pushing its domestic cume over $180 million. Additionally, the film brought in another $4.7 million internationally this weekend as its worldwide cume has now topped $310 million.
In tenth position is Magnolia's documentary RBG, this weekend delivering an estimated $1.1 million for the three-day weekend and looking at a four-day performance around $1.25 million for a domestic cume nearing $6 million. This makes RBG Magnolia's third highest grossing release of all-time with a chance it tops 2017's I Am Not Your Negro ($7.1m) to become the studio's all-time highest grossing title.

Box Office RESULTS: 'Deadpool 2' Launches with Over $300 Million Worldwide



Even though Deadpool 2 didn't deliver a record opening domestically for an R-rated movie it still captured a few record of its own as well as delivered a couple studio records en route to an impressive $301.3 million worldwide debut. Meanwhile Avengers: Infinity War continued its impressive run, becoming the fourth largest global release of all-time while Paramount's Book Club and Global Road's Show Dogs delivered on expectations in their attempts at counter-programming against the pair of superhero features.
Early indications were that Deadpool 2 would deliver a record opening for an R-rated film after bringing in a pair of R-rated records with $18.6 million from Thursday previews and a $53.3 million opening day. However, it wasn't able to maintain that momentum, finishing with a still impressive $125 million estimate for the three-day, which is enough to become the second largest R-rated opening ever behind the original's $132.4 million debut two years ago and just ahead of the $123.4 million opening for It last September. The debut is also the second largest Fox opening of all-time, also behind the original Deadpool.
The film scored a strong "A" CinemaScore and actually skewed just a bit older than the first one which played to an audience of which 53% were 25 years or older vs. 62% for the sequel. Deadpool 2 pretty much matched the first along gender lines, playing to an audience that was 61% male and 39% female.
Looking ahead, with the Memorial Day weekend upcoming it will be interesting to see how things pan out as Deadpool 2 will still have some competition from Avengers: Infinity War, which we'll get to in a second, as well as the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story debuting in over 4,200 locations. If it can hold its own over the holiday weekend it could push to a domestic run over $300 million, especially given it won't be until early July that audiences get a new superhero movie in Ant-Man and the Wasp (7/6).
Deadpool's success doesn't end there as it debuted in 81 markets internationally and brought in an estimated $176.3 million, a record overseas debut for Fox International, topping the $174 million for X-Men: Days of Future Past, which was aided by $38.3 million in China. The original Deadpool didn't play in China until finally premiering last month at the Beijing International Film Festival, and, at this time, the sequel doesn't have a release date scheduled for the Middle Kingdom. Additional highlights from the film's international roll-out include record breaking openings for Fox in Mexico ($10m), India ($6.29m), Indonesia ($4.7m), Thailand ($3.4m), Vietnam ($2m) and Chile ($1.9m).
In second position, while Deadpool takes the weekend crown from Avengers: Infinity War, the Disney and Marvel behemoth brought in $28.7 million over its fourth weekend in release, pushing the film's domestic cume over $595 million after 24 days in release. The film currently ranks as the eighth largest domestic release of all-time.
Infinity War also added another $84.4 million internationally this weekend for an overseas cume that now totals $1.218 billion and a global cume that now stands at $1.81 billion. The film now ranks as the fourth largest global release of all-time and the third largest international release of all-time behind only Avatar and Titanic. Looking at individual markets it has delivered industry records in Brazil ($60.8m), Central America ($13.7m), Bolivia ($3.5m), Chile ($12.9m), Ecuador ($7.3m), Peru ($11.1m), Venezuela ($2.6m), the Philippines ($22.8m), Indonesia ($25.1m), Malaysia ($16.9m), Singapore ($11.5m) and Vietnam ($8.2m). It also ranks as the fourth largest western release of all-time in China with an estimated $302.5 million after just ten days in release, as well as the largest western release of all-time in India ($42.8m) and Thailand ($17.7m).
Paramount's Book Club finished just ahead of Mojo's pre-release expectations, delivering a $12.5 million debut and a solid "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences. Playing as a solid piece of counter-programming, and debuting just ahead of comp title Going in Style, which delivered a 3.7x multiplier, don't be surprised if Book Club pushes past $40 million domestically. The film played to an audience that was 80% female and 88% of the audience was over 35, with 60% over the age of 50.
In fourth position is Melissa McCarthy's Life of the Party, which fell a rather dramatic 57% following the worst opening the actress has seen for a film in which she top lined. The estimated weekend gross stands at $7.7 million for a $31 million cume.
Rounding out the top five is Gabrielle Union's Breaking In, which also had a steep, 63% drop, bringing in an estimated $6.47 million for a domestic cume that now stands at $28.75 million. Despite the drop, however, the film has already delivered more than 4.75x it's $6 million budget.
Just outside the top five is Global Road's family release Show Dogs, which brought in a dismal $6 million from 3,212 locations. The performance ranks among some of the worst openings all-time for a film debuting in over 3,000 theaters. That said, Global Road has now released the last title from the old regime, prior to the merger between Open Road and IM Global, as focus will now shift to the release of Hotel Artemis on June 8. Show Dogs received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences.
Worth mentioning yet again, Paramount's A Quiet Place continues to deliver impressive numbers, this weekend dropping 37% for an estimated $4 million, bringing its domestic cume to $176.17 million. The film has now surpassed last year's monster success Get Out ($176m) and the weekend's news surrounding the title doesn't end there. A Quiet Place debuted in China this weekend, bringing in an estimated $17.7 million, helping push the film's international cume to $120.3 million for a global tally that is now just $3.5 million shy of $300 million.
Rounding out the top ten is Magnolia's documentary RBG, which expanded into 375 theaters this weekend (+196) and delivered an estimated $1.28 million, pushing the film's cume to $3.88 million after three weeks in limited release and already just shy of becoming one of the top 50 documentaries all-time domestically.

Box Office RESULTS: 'Avengers: Infinity War' Crosses $1 Billion Worldwide in Record Time





Disney and Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War continues its record pace, topping $450 million domestically in just nine days and the $1 billion mark worldwide in a record 11 days. Among the weekend's new wide releases, MGM and Lionsgate's Overboard remake delivered a solid debut in the runner-up position while Focus's Tully and Electric Entertainment's Bad Samaritan delivered disappointing debuts in the low single digits.

With an estimated $112.4 million, Disney and Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War is once again the king of the weekend box office, topping its nearest competitor by nearly $100 million, and delivering the second largest second weekend ever. The film's domestic gross now stands at $450.8 million after just ten days in release, pacing behind only Star Wars: The Force Awakens which reached that mark in just nine days.

Internationally, Infinity War remained the #1 western release in every territory in which it has been released, posting an estimated $162.6 million from 54 overseas markets this weekend for a global weekend totaling $275.1 million, bringing the film's worldwide cume to a massive $1.16 billion.

The lone new major market for Infinity War this weekend was the Thursday release in Russia where it set a new opening weekend record topping the previous best posted by Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, delivering an estimated $17.6 million, already exceeding the lifetime cume of Captain America: Civil War in the market. South Korea continues to lead the way internationally where the film has brought in $69.1 million followed by the UK ($67.2m), Mexico ($48.7m), Brazil ($44.3m) and India ($35.7m). The film releases in China next weekend on May 11 where, using current exchange rates, Civil War debuted with $98 million, Avengers: Age of Ultron debuted with $84 million and Black Panther debuted with $66 million.

Overall, Infinity War's 11 day run to $1 billion worldwide is the fastest of any film in history and the sixth Marvel title to reach that mark and 17th for Walt Disney Studios. A total of 34 films have crossed $1 billion at the worldwide box office, see the full list here.

In second is MGM and Lionsgate's Pantelion Films's release of Overboard, a contemporary remake of the 1987 film starring Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn. This time the roles were reversed with Anna Faris starring opposite Latin star Eugenio Derbez and the film brought in an estimated $14.75 million from just 1,623 locations. The performance is a bit behind Mojo's weekend forecast, but ahead of the studio's opening weekend expectations. The film received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening weekend audiences which were 61% female and 83% were over the age of 25.

Paramount's A Quiet Place finished in third position as the hit horror continues its impressive run with an estimated $7.6 million this weekend for a domestic cume just shy of $160 million. Additionally, the film brought in an estimated $4.1 million internationally this weekend, bringing its worldwide cume to $255.3 million.

Amy Schumer's I Feel Pretty finished in fourth with an estimated $4.9 million for a domestic cume that now totals $37.8 million.

Rounding out the top five is Warner Bros. and New Line's Rampage with an estimated $4.6 million for a domestic cume that is now just shy of $85 million. Additionally, Rampage added $13.7 million internationally, bringing its global cume to $377.9 million with releases in Germany (May 10) and Japan (May 18) in the near future.

Just outside the top five, Focus Features's release of Jason Reitman's Tully brought in an estimated $3.18 million from 1,353 theaters. The performance is right in the middle of industry expectations, but still something of a disappointment as the studio went with a wide opening weekend rather than use the film's positive reviews and go with a platform release, attempting to bank on word of mouth. The film played to audiences that were 60% female vs. 40% male with 67% of the audience coming in at 30 years of age or older.

Behind Tully in seventh position is Disney and Marvel's Black Panther, which delivered a strong $3.1 million, pushing the film's domestic cume over $693 million, just $7 million shy of becoming only the third film to ever reach $700 million domestically.

And rounding out the top ten is Electric Entertainment's release of Bad Samaritan, pulling in an estimated $1.76 million from 2,007 theaters for a disappointing $876 per theater average. While far from the worst opening average of all-time, it is the tenth worst for a film opening in 2,000 theaters or more as well as one of the ten worst openings ever for a film debuting in 2,000+ locations. Opening day audiences gave the film a "B-" CinemaScore.
