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.

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.
