Box Office RESULTS: 'Mission: Impossible' Tops 'Christopher Robin'

 

August 2017 saw the worst grosses for the eighth month of the year in twenty years and the writing was on the wall very early with the disappointing debut of The Dark Tower to begin the month. While this weekend's crop of new releases didn't exactly light the box office on fire, with Disney's Christopher Robin debuting below expectations, the weekend's top twelve titles still finished 15% ahead of the the same weekend last year and featured a strong carryover weekend from Paramount's Mission: Impossible - Fallout.
With an estimated $35 million, Mission: Impossible - Fallout finished atop the weekend box office for a second weekend in a row as the film's domestic cume now stands just shy of $125 million after ten days in release. The film's 42.8% second weekend drop is the second best sophomore effort in the franchise behind Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, which isn't quite an apples-to-apples comparison considering it kicked things off with a limited debut over the holiday season in 2011.
Internationally, Fallout brought in an estimated $76 million from 56 markets, including 20 new openings. The film's international cume is now $205 million, 21% ahead of Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation for the same group of markets. Rogue Nation went on to deliver $487.6 million internationally and $682.7 million globally. Fallout's worldwide cume currently stands at $329.5 million with releases in Italy (8/29) and China (8/31) still on the horizon.
Landing in the runner-up position is Disney's Christopher Robin, falling short of expectations, delivering an estimated $25 million from 3,602 locations. While this is an improvement over the $21.5 million debut for 2016's Pete's Dragon, it's not a strong start for the film, though with little competition over the coming weeks and an "A" CinemaScore from opening day audiences it could hope for some decent legs. Overall, the film played to an audience that was 56% female and 50% of the audience was 25 years of age or older, both metrics compare closely to Pete's Dragon, which played to an audience that was 53% female and 47% was 25+.
Internationally, Christopher Robin debuted in 18 markets, estimated at 15% of the overseas marketplace, where the film brought in an estimated $4.8 million. Leading the way was Mexico ($1.4m) and Russia ($1.2m). Next weekend the film will debut in Belgium, Netherlands, Iceland, Thailand, India, Trinidad and Ecuador with several key openings over the next couple months, culminating an October 24 release in France.
Lionsgate's The Spy Who Dumped Me delivered an estimated $12.35 million for a third place finish. The performance is just below the studio's expectations. Looking ahead, the film can be compared to Hot Pursuit's Mother's Day debut in 2015. The $35 million production debuted with $13.9 million and finished with a domestic run just shy of $35 million.
The Spy Who Dumped carries a reported budget of $40 million, of which more than half was covered by foreign sales, and received a "B" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, an improvement over Hot Pursuit's "C+". The two films both played to an audience that was 62% female and for Spy, 70% of the overall audience was 25 years of age or older. Next weekend's performance will determine if this is a film that runs from $25-30 million or if it can leg out a domestic cume over $30 million.
Fourth place belonged to Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, which brought in an estimated $9 million, pushing the film's domestic cume over $91 million as it begins its third week in release. Internationally, the film added another $19.3 million this weekend as it opened in seven new markets, pushing its overseas cume to $139.2 million for a global tally now topping $230 million.
Rounding out the top five is Sony's The Equalizer 2, which dropped just 37% for an estimated $8.8 million weekend and a domestic cume that now stands just shy of $80 million. The film is playing in just 11 markets internationally right now with a debut in Spain set for next weekend followed by releases in France (Aug 15), Brazil (Aug 16), Germany (Aug 16), Mexico (Aug 17), UK (Aug 17), Russia (Sep 6), Italy (Sep 13), South Korea (Sep 13) and Japan (Oct 5).
Outside the top five, it isn't until eighth position that we find Fox's new release The Darkest Minds. The YA adaptation debuted in 3,127 theaters and brought in a dismal $5.8 million, which ranks as the 11th worst opening all-time for a film opening in 3,000+ locations. Things weren't much better internationally for Darkest Minds where the $34 million production debuted in 37 markets and brought in an estimated $4.1 million led by Mexico with just over $1 million.

Box Office RESULTS: 'Mission: Impossible - Fallout' Debuts With Franchise Best, $61.5M Opening






This weekend saw Paramount's Mission: Impossible - Fallout top the weekend box office with the franchise's largest three-day opening as well as star Tom Cruise's second largest opening of his career. Meanwhile, Warner Bros.'s animated feature Teen Titans Go! To the Movies struggled and fell short of expectations. Overall, the weekend was up ~6% compared to last weekend and up ~8% compared to the same weekend last year.
With an estimated $61.5 million, Paramount's Mission: Impossible - Fallout fell a bit shy of Mojo's pre-weekend expectations, but still managed to deliver the franchise's largest three-day opening, topping the $57.8 million opening for Mission: Impossible II back in 2000. The opening also represents the second largest debut for Tom Cruise after the $64.8 million debut for War of the Worlds in 2005 and for Paramount this is the studio's largest opening since 2014's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ($65.5m). Given the film's position as the last major blockbuster of summer 2018 and the positive reaction from both audiences and critics, Fallout should exhibit strong legs looking ahead.
Fallout not only carried the best reviews of the franchise (97% on RottenTomatoes and an 86 on Metacritic), but opening day audiences gave the film a franchise-best "A" CinemaScore. The film played to an audience that was 55% male, which is much more balanced when compared to the 62% for Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation. Speaking of which, after opening with $55.5 million, and receiving an "A-" CinemaScore in 2015, Rogue Nation went on to deliver $195 million at the domestic box office. A similar performance for Fallout would put the film's domestic run over $215 million.
Internationally, the last two Mission films delivered nearly $700 million globally and Fallout is already looking to top those figures after debuting in 36 markets this weekend and delivering an estimated $92 million. Paramount reports the performance as being 19% ahead of Rogue Nation making it the biggest opening for the franchise.
Highlights include a $24.6 million opening in South Korea, 22% above Rogue Nation, followed by the UK ($9m), India ($7m), Indonesia ($5.5m), Taiwan ($5.4m), Mexico ($4.8m), Russia ($4m), Brazil ($3.8m), United Arab Emirates ($3m), Hong Kong ($2.8m), Malaysia ($2.6m), Philippines ($2.2m), Singapore ($1.8m), Spain ($1.7m), Vietnam ($1.2m) and Colombia ($1m). The film's overseas opening represented approximately 40% of the international marketplace with openings in France, Australia, Germany and Japan planned for this coming weekend followed by Italy on August 29 and China on August 31.
Universal's Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again dropped a hefty 57%, resulting in a second weekend, estimated at $15 million, pushing the film's domestic cume over $70 million. It will be interesting to see where the film goes from here as this is a larger drop than anticipated, especially given the lack of competition among the film's target demographic.
Sony's The Equalizer 2 topped the box office last weekend, but, as expected, dropped heavily in its second weekend as it lost a large segment of its audience to the release of Mission: Impossible. That said, like Mamma Mia!, the dip was larger than expected, dropping 61% for a second weekend totaling an estimated $14 million for a domestic cume coming up just shy of $65 million after ten days in release. The first film dropped just 45% in its second weekend despite both Gone Girl and Annabelle opening over its second weekend.
Sony also landed in second with Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, which brought in an estimated $12.3 million for a domestic cume just shy of $120 million as it begins its third week in release.
Rounding out the top five is Warner Bros.'s animated feature Teen Titans Go! To the Movies, which was expected to finish in the mid-teens, but could only manage $10.5 million over its debut weekend. The DC Comics adaptation, which is based on the television series "Teen Titans Go!", carries a reported budget of just $10 million, which softens the film's disappointing performance a little, especially when you compare it to a film such as Sherlock Gnomes, which debuted with just $10.6 million earlier this year, but carried a budget nearly six times the size of Teen Titans.
Internationally, Teen Titans opened in just eight smaller markets, bringing in an estimated $1 million. The largest market was the film's opening in Argentina, where it brought in $464,000. Looking ahead, the film will debut in the UK on August 3 followed by releases in Germany (Aug 16), Mexico (Aug 24), Brazil (Aug 30), Spain (Aug 31), France (Sep 5) and Italy (Sep 6).
Elsewhere in the top ten, Disney and Marvel's Ant-Man and the Wasp brought in an estimated $8.4 million, pushing the film's domestic cume to $183.2 million. The result pushes the film over Ant-Man ($180.2m) and Thor ($181m) to become the 16th largest release in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Disney also occupied the seventh slot at the weekend box office with Pixar's Incredibles 2, which has now grossed nearly $575 million domestically and has a worldwide cume nearing $1 billion. The film will soon become the 36th film to ever reach $1 billion worldwide and it won't be stopping there as it will open in Japan and Spain next weekend followed by debuts in Italy and Germany in September.

Box Office RESULTS: 06/15/18 - 06/17/18



Disney and Pixar's Incredibles 2 delivered a massive opening weekend debut, not only shattering the previous opening weekend record for an animated film, but finishing with one of the top ten openings of all-time for a film of any genre. Additionally, Warner Bros.'s R-rated comedy Tag debuted in third position while Sony's Superfly fell short of expectations.
With an estimated $180 million, Disney and Pixar's Incredibles 2 topped the previous opening weekend for an animated film set two years ago by Finding Dory with $135 million. On top of that, the film's opening weekend is the eighth largest all-time, topping the $179.1 million opening for 2016's Captain America: Civil War, which went on to gross over $400 million at the domestic box office. Also of note, this is more than the $174.7 million opening for Disney's Beauty and the Beast, which went on to gross over $500 million domestically. As for Incredibles 2's domestic future, an "A+" CinemaScore and an opening of this size seems to suggest a $500+ million domestic performance is in the offing, which would make it the highest grossing animated film of all-time should it reach that number, topping Dory's $486.2 million domestic run.
Additionally, beyond the records already mentioned, the film delivered the largest opening day ever for an animated title and the second largest June opening ever behind Jurassic World. Added to that, when it comes to the largest opening weekends of all-time, Disney now owns nine of the top ten, the lone standout being the aforementioned Jurassic World at number four.
Internationally, Incredibles 2 brought in an estimated $51.5 million from ~26% of the international market, for a global debut totaling an estimated $231.5 million. As far as the international openings are concerned, the film delivered the largest Pixar opening weekend in several markets including Mexico ($12.3m), Australia ($7.7m) and Argentina ($3m) along with a $5.4 million opening in Russia. The film's international rollout will be staggered, as is typically the case with Pixar titles, with openings in China, Iceland, Croatia, Thailand and India next weekend followed by releases in Brazil (Jun 28), France (Jul 4), UK (Jul 13), Korea (Jul 19), Japan (Aug 1), Spain (Aug 3), Italy (Sep 19) and Germany (Sep 27).
In second is WB's Ocean's 8, dropping 53% for an estimated $19.5 million second weekend for a domestic cume just shy of $80 million. Internationally the film added an estimated $19.3 million from 36 markets, pushing the international running cume to $37.1 million for a global tally now topping $116 million.
WB also takes third place with the R-rated comedy Tag, which opened with an estimated $14.6 million. While ahead of the studio's expectations, this is a bit shy of Mojo's pre-weekend forecast and a little less than might have been expected following a solid $1.325 million in preview grosses on Thursday night. In fact, given the preview gross the film played closer to WB's 2016 comedy War Dogs or the 2014 comedy Sex Tape, which went on to gross $43 million and $38.5 million respectively.
Tag received a "B+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences and played to a crowd that was 51% female and 76% of the overall audience was 25 years of age or older.
Internationally, Tag began playing in seven markets with an estimated $1.4 million including an $837k debut in Australia. The next key markets to open in the film's staggered release strategy will be Russia on June 28 and the UK on June 29. Additional upcoming markets include include Italy (Jul 5), Mexico (Jul 19) and Germany (Jul 26).
Disney and Lucasfilms's Solo: A Star Wars Story finished in fourth with an estimated $9.3 million for a domestic cume approaching $195 million. Internationally the film added $5.2 million for an overseas cume totaling $146.7 million and a global tally that now stands at $339.5 million.
Rounding out the top five is Fox's Deadpool 2 with an estimated $8.8 million for a domestic cume that is now just ~$320k shy of $295 million. Internationally the film added $9.8 million from 76 markets, taking the international cume to $394.9 million for a global total that is now just $10.5 million shy of $700 million.
Just outside the top five is A24's Hereditary, which dipped just 48% for a strong $7 million second weekend. Made on a reported budget of just $10 million, the horror feature has now grossed over $27 million after just ten days in domestic release.
Just behind Hereditary in seventh place is Sony's new release Superfly. After debuting on Wednesday, the film brought in an estimated $6.3 million for the three-day weekend for a $8.4 million five-day cume. The $16 million production, which received a "B+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences fell a bit shy of the low single digits the studio was anticipating for the five-day. Superfly played to an audience that was 53% male and 72% of the overall audience was 25 years of age or older.
Outside the top ten, we'll begin with Disney's successful push to get A Wrinkle in Time to the century mark as the film brought in an estimated $1.77 million from 245 locations for a domestic cume that now totals $100 million.
Vertical's Gotti and Yash Raj's Race 3 are neck-and-neck as of right now as the two films brought in an estimated $1.67 million and $1.63 million respectively. The big difference is Race 3 was playing in 188 fewer theaters and once actuals arrive could leapfrog Gotti for the final spot in the top twelve.
Elsewhere, Focus expanded the release of Morgan Neville's Mister Rogers documentary Won't You be My Neighbor? into 96 theaters (+67) and brought in an impressive $985,000 for a per theater average of $10,253 and a $1.69 million domestic cume after ten days in release. The film is looking to be in over 300 theaters next weekend.
