Benny and Bjorn seem to like being in ABBA again. As do Agnetha and Frida. We may end up with even more
than 3 New ABBA Songs...
Of course, if they keep adding to them, eventually they will only be a few short of an actual New Album. Then,
it is but a few more recording sessions, to turn them into such an Album...
The sequel leading the charge will be Universal's release of Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, which debuts ten years after the first film delivered over $144 million domestically and an impressive $609.8 million worldwide, which, at the time, was the highest grossing musical worldwide until Beauty and the Beast exploded to $1.26 billion worldwide last year. While Mamma Mia 2 won't challenge Beauty's record, we expect it to challenge its predecessor both domestically and abroad. Reviews for the sequel are an improvement over those for the original and online ticket retailer Fandango.com is reporting the film is not only outpacing The Greatest Showman, but is actually outpacing Pitch Perfect 2, the latter of which opened with a monstrous $69.2 million.
While we aren't seeing any evidence of a debut nearly as high as Pitch Perfect 2, we are expecting a performance above the $27.7 million debut for the 2008 original, as is Universal. IMDb page view data shows the film pacing behind Pitch Perfect 2, which is to be expected, while outpacing Sony's Annie and, in fact, performing just a touch behind Fifty Shades Darker, which opened with $46.6 million last year. That film's R-rating, however, makes it a tough comp as does any attempt to compare to films such as Into the Woods and The Greatest Showman given their holiday release patterns. All that being said, these comparisons can prove useful when taking their various differences into account, which leads us to anticipating an opening around $35-40+ million.
In addition to its domestic debut, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again opens day-and-date in 41 international markets including the U.K. and Ireland, Australia, Germany, Norway, Spain and Sweden, with additional markets rolling out through September.
