    I think so too. Most of its success was more due to being the first 3Dmovie inside the big cinemas rather than because of the story itself. I would be surprised if number two grosses way more than a billion in total.

    Personally I think it will too 1 billion. It was a massive massive success, if the second has a good campaign, it won't struggle a bit.

    'Detective Pikachu' Delivers Record Opening for a Video Game Adaptation as 'Endgame' Tops $700M

    Disney's Avengers: Endgame dipped a little more than expected for the three-day, but it was still able to capture the weekend's top spot, holding off a record start for a video game adaptation from WB's Pokemon: Detective Pikachu. Meanwhile, UA Releasing's The Hustle lived up to expectations, but STX and eOne's Poms and Disney's release of the Fox Searchlight drama Tolkien both struggled in their debuts over this Mother's Day weekend.

    With an estimated $63 million, Avengers: Endgame topped the weekend box office for the third straight weekend in a row for a domestic cume that now stands at $723.5 million. Endgame is only the third film ever to top $700 million domestically as it topped Black Panther to become the third highest grossing domestic release of all-time.

    Internationally, Endgame added another $102.3 million for an international cume that now stands at $1.76 billion and a global tally reaching $2.485 billion. The film remains the second highest grossing international and worldwide release ever, trailing Avatar both categories, though by just $302 million worldwide and $265 million internationally in what could end up a very tight race.

    Finishing in second is WB's Detective Pikachu with an estimated $58 million. The adaptation of the 2016 video game of the same name, which itself was based on the popular Pokemon franchise, delivered what is now the largest opening weekend for a video game adaptation ever, topping 2001's Lara Croft Tomb Raider ($47.7m). Not only that, opening weekend audiences liked the film to the tune of an "A-" CinemaScore, which is only the sixth time a video game adaptation has scored anything higher than a "B". In fact, three of the previous "A-" CinemaScores went to WB's three previous Pokemon films and the other two "A-" scores went to Mortal Kombat and Rampage.

    Looking ahead, should Detective Pikachu follow in the footsteps of previous video game adaptations, we're probably looking at a domestic run anywhere from $145-165 million. Outside that range on the high end, films such as Hitman, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life and Prince of Persia delivered 3x multiples, which would mean a domestic run closer to $175 million, but a performance closer to the likes of Rampage and The Angry Birds Movie seems a little more reasonable at this point, which would suggest a domestic run topping $160 million. However you look at it, we're talking about a film that will soon become the highest grossing video game adaptation of all-time domestically as it has already entered the top ten after just three days in release.

    Internationally, Detective Pikachu delivered an estimated $103 million this weekend for a running overseas cume that now totals $112.4 million after opening in Japan last weekend where it has brought in nearly $13 million so far. The film's international performance is led by this weekend's opening in China where it has already brought in nearly $41 million. Additional openings include UK ($6.6m), Germany ($5.0m), Mexico ($4.97m), France ($4.8m), Australia ($3.5m), Korea ($3.2m), Italy ($2.8m), Spain ($2.2m), Indonesia ($2.14m) and Taiwan ($2.06m). The next major market release is Russia where the film will open on May 16.

    UA Releasing's The Hustle finished in third with an estimated $13.5 million, which is just ahead of expectations for the comedy remake starring Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson. Opening day audiences gave the film a "B" CinemaScore while 72% of the crowd was female and 66% were under 35 years old.

    Internationally, the film debuted in 36 locations with an estimated $13.7 million led by a $2.4 million opening in Russia. Additional openings include Germany ($1.8m), Australia ($1.8m) and the UK ($1.5m). Looking ahead, the film will open in Mexico on June 28 followed by July openings in France and Brazil.

    Sony's The Intruder held on better than expected for a fourth place finish after dipping just -39% in its second weekend for a $6.6 million three-day. The film's domestic total now tops $21 million after ten days in release.

    Rounding out the top five is Lionsgate's Long Shot, which also held on better than expected with an estimated $6.1 million three-day, dropping -37% in its second weekend. The romantic comedy has now grossed just shy of $20 million domestically.

    Falling outside the top five is eOne and STXfilms's Poms, which debuted in 2,750 locations and could only manage an estimated $5.1 million. This is the second disappointment in as many weeks for STX, which saw their animated feature UglyDolls disappoint last weekend. Poms received a "B+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences and saw females make up 75% of the opening weekend crowd while 85% of the weekend audience was aged 25 or older.

    Landing just inside the top ten is Disney's release of Tolkien, which was previously scheduled for a limited release this weekend rather than a wide, and, unfortunately it was unable to live up to its theater count. The film debuted in 1,495 locations and could only manage an estimated $2.15 million. This includes both $240k from Thursday's previews as well as grosses from Tuesday's Fathom event. Overall the film's per theater average is a disappointing $1,419.

    Next weekend sees the release of the hotly anticipated John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum in 3,600+ locations along with Universal's A Dog's Journey in 3,200 theaters and WB's The Sun is Also a Star in over 2,100 theaters.

    Not sure over the next two weeks it might make $100 million in total, which would still leave it over $60 million behind Avatar.

    Avengers: Endgame has vaulted over Avatar to become the second highest grossing film of all time at the North American box office on an estimated $770.8m

    The Marvel Cinematic Universe tentpole added an estimated $29.4m through Buena Vista in 4,220 theatres in its fourth weekend, overtaking 2009 release Avatar’s $760.5m final tally.

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens remains the all-time champion on $936.7m, a seemingly unassailable record, for the foreseeable future at least, established in 2016.

    Avengers: Endgame ranks as the second highest international release on $1.844bn behind Avatar on $2.027bn, and the second highest global release on $2.615bn behind Avatar on $2.787bn.

    John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum starring Keanu Reeves and Halle Berry opened top at the North American box office, grossing an estimated franchise-best $57m in 3,850 venues through Lionsgate-Summit.

    Disney's 'Aladdin' Soars Over Memorial Day Weekend at the Box Office

    Disney's Aladdin topped the weekend with an impressive debut, delivering over $85 million for the three-day and is expected to top $100 million for the four-day, Memorial Day holiday weekend. Meanwhile, fellow newcomers Brightburn and Booksmart finished more in line with studio expectations than Mojo's aggressive pre-weekend forecast and Avengers: Endgame will become only the second film ever to top $800 million at the domestic box office by the end of the long holiday weekend.

    With an estimated $86.1 million, Disney's Aladdin topped the Memorial Day three-day weekend box office, besting the three-day opening for the studio's Solo: A Star Wars Story last year. For Disney this is something of a big win considering the studio's live action properties, outside of the Marvel Universe, have struggled for some time now. Disney anticipates the reportedly $180+ million production will top $105 million for the four-day weekend, though others expect that total to go even higher, targeting a four-day debut over $110 million, which would be enough to make it one of the top five Memorial Day opening of all-time. Aladdin received an "A" CinemaScore from opening day audiences while playing to a crowd that was 54% female with 54% of the audience coming in aged 25 or older.

    Internationally, Aladdin debuted in every major market except for Japan, where the film will open on June 7, and delivered an estimated $121 million for a global debut topping $207 million for the three-day weekend. The film's top market this weekend was China where it opened with $18.7 million followed by Mexico ($9.2m), UK ($8.4m), Italy ($6.6m), Korea ($6.5m), Russia ($6.4m), Australia ($5.4m), Indonesia ($4.9m), Spain ($4.8m), Brazil ($4.6m), France ($3.8m), Germany ($3.6m) and Philippines ($3.4m).

    In second place is Lionsgate's release of John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum with an estimated $24.35 million for the three-day, pushing the film over $100 million after ten days in release. Wick 3 is expected to add another $6+ million on Monday, which would push the film's four-day weekend over $30 million for a domestic cume topping $107 million. With this weekend's performance, Wick 3 is already the highest grossing film in the franchise, which makes it no wonder Lionsgate has already dated John Wick: Chapter 4 for May 2021. In fact, if you check out our latest showdown, the third Wick film is keeping pace with the likes of Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation and Jason Bourne at the same point in each respective film's release, further exemplifying the character's box office might.

    Internationally, Wick added an estimated $24.8 million from 74 markets this weekend, pushing the international cume to $74.4 million for a worldwide cume topping $175 million. This weekend's new releases included Germany ($3.5m) and France ($2.2m) with Spain and Norway set to open next weekend as the final major markets where the film has yet to debut.

    Disney's success this weekend continues in third place where we find Avengers: Endgame, which added another $16.8 million over the three-day and is expected to deliver $22 million for the four-day holiday weekend. The performance will be enough to give the film over $800 million domestically, joining Star Wars: The Force Awakens as the only two domestic releases to ever top $800 million at the domestic box office.

    Internationally, Endgame added $15.3 million this weekend from 54 markets for an international total that now stands at $1.879 billion for a global cume totaling $2.677 billion. For those keeping watch, this puts Endgame approximately $111 million behind Avatar on the all-time worldwide grosses chart.

    Warner Bros. landed in fourth position for the weekend with Detective Pikachu bringing in an estimated $13.3 million for the three-day weekend, pushing the film's domestic gross over $116 million as it enters its third week in release. Expectation is for the picture to deliver around $17.5 million for the four-day weekend for a domestic gross topping $120 million. Internationally, the film added an estimated $24.3 million this weekend in 72 markets for an overseas cume totaling over $236 million for a worldwide gross just shy of $353 million.

    Rounding out the top five is the second of the weekend's three new wide releases in Sony's release of Screen Gems's Brightburn. The R-rated superhero feature delivered an estimated $7.5 million for the three-day weekend, which is just a touch below the studio's $8 million expectation. The pic, which was made on a reported $6 million budget, is expected to deliver $9 million for the four-day weekend. The film received a "C+" CinemaScore from opening weekend audiences while playing to a weekend crowd that was 58% male and 64% of the overall audience was aged 25 or older.

    Internationally, Brightburn brought in $4.5 million from 50 markets this weekend for an international cume totaling $7.8 million. Russia led all markets with $775k, followed by South Korea ($550k) and Spain ($505k). Upcoming major market releases include the UK (Jun 19), Germany (Jun 20) and France (Jun 26).

    Just outside the top five is UA Releasing's Booksmart, which delivered an estimated $6.5 million over the three-day, which is in line with the studio's expectations. Booksmart entered the weekend as the best reviewed film of the three new wide releases and received a "B+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences. As for that audience, 61% of the opening weekend crowd was female while 79% were under the age of 35.

    Next weekend will see Warner Bros. going big with Godzilla: King of the Monsters debuting in over 4,100 locations, Universal will fight for a similar audience with Ma opening in 2,750 locations while Paramount delivers some counter-programming in the form of Rocketman, which will launch in 3,500 theaters after debuting in the UK this past week with $6.4 million.

    'Godzilla' Sequel is Box Office King; 'Rocketman' and 'Ma' Top Expectations

    WB's Godzilla: King of the Monsters is the king of the weekend box office, though doing so at the lower end of studio expectations. Meanwhile, both Paramount's Rocketman and Universal and Blumhouse's Ma topped studio expectations, the latter of which doing so on a small, $5 million budget. Overall, the weekend saw the top twelve deliver nearly $170 million, helping push the summer box office over $1.137 billion (+9% compared to 2018) and the yearly box office is now just -8.5% behind last year as that gap continues to close.

    With an estimated $49 million, WB's Godzilla: King of the Monsters fell short of the studio's $50-55 million expectations as it showed day-to-day declines after delivering a $19.6 million opening day (including $6.3 million from Thursday night previews). The film's opening is well short of the $93.2 million opening for the 2014 reboot as well as the $61 million opening for Kong: Skull Island back in March 2017. Comparatively, Skull Island had a much smaller preview gross ($3.7 million) and still managed a larger opening day ($20.1 million) while holding on much better throughout the weekend. Godzilla received a "B+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences while playing to a crowd that was 67% male and 59% were aged 25 or older.

    Now we'll look to see how well King of the Monsters can hold on from week-to-week. After all, Godzilla could only muster a 2.15x multiplier while Skull Island finished with a 2.75x. Using those two performances we'd be talking about a total domestic gross performance anywhere from $105-135 million for the reportedly $170 million production, which means the studio will be putting a much larger emphasis on the film's international performance.

    That said, internationally, Godzilla debuted in 75 markets with an estimated $130 million for a worldwide opening totaling $179 million. Leading the way was a $70 million opening in China, which is relatively on par with the debut for Kong: Skull Island while playing well ahead of the likes of Rampage (+39%), The Meg (+40%) and 2014's Godzilla (+116%). Other openings include Japan ($8.4m), Mexico ($4.6m), UK's Wednesday opening with ($4.4m), Taiwan ($4.1m), Indonesia ($3.5m), France ($2.6m), Russia ($2.5m), India ($2.5m), Thailand ($2.3m), South Korea ($2.2m) and Malaysia ($2.2m). A few smaller markets remain with Spain serving as the last key market to release on June 21.

    Disney's Aladdin had a solid hold in its sophomore frame, dipping -53% after its holiday weekend debut for an estimated $42.3 million three-day performance, pushing the film's domestic gross to $185 million after ten days in release. Internationally, Aladdin addled another $78.3 million this weekend for an international cume totaling $261 million for a global cume just shy of $446 million.

    Paramount's Rocketman debuted in third place with an estimated $25 million. The performance is well ahead of the $18-20 million the studio was anticipating, though well short of Mojo's pre-weekend forecast, anticipating a debut over $30 million. The film was a hit with audiences, however, just as it was with critics, receiving an "A-" CinemaScore, playing to a crowd that was 51% female with 55% of the overall crowd coming in aged 30 years or older. Overall, the performance is the fourth largest opening for a music biopic, just behind the $26.4 million debut for All Eyez on Me, though Paramount will be hoping for a much better run than that movie had as it only managed $44.9 million domestically.

    Internationally, Rocketman is in its second weekend after debuting in the UK last week. The film added 39 new openings this weekend and grossed $19.2 million for an international cume that now stands at $31.2 million. Leading the way is the UK with a total of $15.3 million so far followed by Australia ($3.9m), France ($1.8m), Germany ($1.5m) and Brazil ($1.1m). Upcoming releases include Korea and Russia next weekend followed by Japan in late August.

    In fourth is Universal and Blumhouse's Ma, which launched with an estimated $18.2 million domestically on a $5 million budget. The film received a "B-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences while playing to a crowd that was 53% female and 53% were aged 25 or older with strong support from African Americans, which made up a majority of the audience at 36%.

    Ma also added $2.8 million internationally from 31 markets for a $21.1 million global bow. Leading the way was a $585k debut in the UK followed by Germany ($512k) and Mexico ($501k). Looking ahead, the film will open in France and Spain next week followed by openings in Russia (Jun 13), Korea (Aug 1), Italy (Aug 22), Australia (Aug 22) and Japan (Nov 8).

    Rounding out the top five is Lionsgate's John Wick: Chapter 3, which took in an estimated $11.1 million domestically for a cume that now tops $125 million. Additionally, the film grossed an estimated $12.7 million internationally from 77 markets, pushing the international cume to $95.9 million for a global tally topping $221 million.

    Next weekend sees the release of Fox's Dark Phoenix in 3,500 locations along with Universal's The Secret Life of Pets 2 in over 4,400 theaters.

    'Pets 2' and 'Dark Phoenix' Top Weekend Box Office, Though Both Underperform

    The weekend's top twelve combined to outperform the same weekend last year by more than 43%, which means the year-to-year gap continues to close, but the weekend's new releases both struggled mightily. Universal and Illumination's The Secret Life of Pets 2 was unable to even deliver half of the opening the first film delivered just a few years ago, while Fox's Dark Phoenix entered the weekend as the worst reviewed film in the X-Men franchise ever and, predictably, delivered the lowest opening weekend of the franchise.

    At the top of the box office is Universal and Illumination's The Secret Life of Pets 2 with an estimated $47.1 million from 4,561 locations (the second widest opening ever only to Avengers: Endgame). The performance is less than half of the original, 2016 film's $104.3 million, which remains a record opening for an original, animated feature. Heading into the weekend expectations weren't exactly meteoric, with the studio hoping for an opening over $50 million, but even that proved an impossible task.

    Looking ahead, Pets 2 received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, while playing to a crowd that was 57% female with 62% of the film's opening crowd being family moviegoers. As for the film's future, it compares to the $48.4 million opening for Hotel Transylvania 2 and the $47.6 million debut for Kung Fu Panda 2, both of which went on to gross over $165 million, albeit neither played in the middle of the summer movie season, which will make the future of this film interesting to watch.

    Internationally, Pets 2 began playing overseas two weeks ago and this weekend added 21 markets including the Netherlands ($1.7m), Vietnam ($1.3m), Italy ($1.1m) and Taiwan ($800k). Overall, the film brought in $16 million this weekend from a total of 30 markets for an international cume that currently stands at $49 million. The film's top market is Russia with just shy of $17 million with openings yet to come in Australia (Jun 20), Germany (Jun 27), Brazil (Jun 27), China (Jul 5), Japan (Jul 26), Korea (Jul 31), France (Jul 31), Spain (Aug 9) and Mexico (Aug 9).

    In second place things don't get any better as Disney's release of Fox's Dark Phoenix could only manage an estimated $33 million debut, making it the first film in the X-Men franchise to fail to deliver a $50+ million opening. In fact, like Pets 2 the film's opening is well off even the studio's modest, $40-50 million expectations and over $30 million shy of the disappointing, $65.7 million opening for X-Men: Apocalypse three years ago.

    The average multiplier for films in the X-Men franchise is 2.5x, which would suggest we're looking at an $82.5 million domestic run for Dark Phoenix, which would make it the first film in the franchise to finish below $100 million domestically. The film received a "B-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, which is a grade below the "A-" score for X-Men: Apocalypse, as audiences seemed to agree with the negative critical reception. The audience was 57% male with 61% of the opening weekend crowd coming in aged 25 years or older.

    Internationally, Dark Phoenix debuted in all but Japan this weekend, bringing in an estimated $107 million, led by a $45.6 million opening in China. Additional openings include South Korea ($5.7m), Mexico ($5.0m), UK ($4.9m), France ($3.8m), Russia ($3.4m), Brazil ($2.9m), Philippines ($2.4m), Taiwan ($2.3m) and India ($2.3m). The film will open in Japan on June 21.

    Disney's Aladdin took third with an estimated $24.5 million, signaling a solid, -43% drop as it enters its third week in release. The film's domestic cume is now over $232 million. Internationally, the film added another $67.6 million this weekend for an overseas cume totaling $372.5 million, pushing Aladdin's global tally just shy of $605 million.

    In fourth, Warner's Godzilla: King of the Monsters dropped hard, falling -67.5% for an estimated $15.5 million second weekend. The drop isn't exactly a surprise, though it is a fraction steeper than the large, -67% drop the 2014 original felt, which continues to put a question mark on the film's overall domestic run and whether or not it will be able to go much higher than $100 million. The film's domestic gross currently stands at $78.6 million.

    Internationally, Godzilla added $47.1 million this weekend for an overseas cume that stands at $213.7 million and a global tally topping $292 million. Spain remains the final key market for the film, where it will release on June 21.

    Rounding out the top five is Paramount's Rocketman, which dropped -46% in its second weekend for an estimated $14 million. The film's domestic cume now stands at just over $50 million after ten days in release. Internationally, the film added $13 million from 50 markets for an overseas cume that now totals just over $51 million and a worldwide gross over $101 million.

    In limited release, Amazon Studios began the platform release of their record, $13 million Sundance acquisition, Late Night, debuting the film in four locations this weekend with an estimated $249,654 and a chart-topping $62,414 per theater average. The film will go nationwide in over 1,500 locations next weekend.

    Additionally, A24's The Last Black Man In San Francisco opened in seven theaters in NY, LA and San Francisco and delivered an estimated $230,744 for a per screen average of $32,963. The film will expand into top markets next weekend.

    Next weekend will see Sony's release of Men in Black International debut in over 3,800 location; WB will release Shaft in over 2,900 theaters; Focus will debut Jim Jarmusch's The Dead Don't Die in approximately 550 theaters; and the aforementioned Amazon release Late Night will go into wide release.

    I’m enjoying seeing this X-Men movie flip, it looks awful and generic.

    'Men in Black' & 'Shaft' Become Latest Summer Sequels to Disappoint

    It was another disappointing weekend for a pair of new sequels as both Sony's Men in Black International and WB's Shaft were both unable to reach even the slimmest of studio expectations heading into the weekend. The weekend is down significantly compared to last year when Incredibles 2 bowed with a record-shattering $182.6 million opening and next weekend will turn to Pixar once again, looking to Toy Story 4 to turn the tide.

    Sony's release of Men in Black International debuted with a disappointing $28.5 million from 4,224 locations. By comparison, this is the lowest opening in the franchise by over $20 million as all three of the previous installments opened with over $51 million. The $110 million production joins a slew of recently released sequels to not only under-perform based on pre-weekend expectations, but severely under-performing based on previous films in the franchise. Entering the weekend the film received mostly negative reviews and opening day audiences gave the film a "B" CinemaScore, which is hardly a ringing endorsement. The film played to an opening weekend crowd that was 56% male with 53% of the overall audience coming in aged 25 or older.

    Internationally, Men in Black brought in $73.7 million from 36 markets, giving the film a global debut over $102 million. The studio notes the film is tracking on par with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and 19% behind MIB 3 at current exchange rates for the same group of markets. China led all markets with $26.3 million and a #1 opening followed by Russia ($5.1m), South Korea ($4.9m), Mexico ($3.9m), Japan ($3.5m), UK ($3.4m), Australia ($2.6m) and France ($2.5m). The film opened in approximately 92% of the marketplace with debuts in Belgium (Jun 19), Netherlands (Jun 20) and Italy (Jul 25) remaining.

    Finishing in second is Universal and Illumination's The Secret Life of Pets 2, which dipped -49% to begin its second weekend with an estimated $23.8 million three-day and a domestic gross that now totals just over $92 million after ten days in release. Internationally, the film added another $8.5 million this weekend for a global cume that now totals nearly $155 million.

    Disney's Aladdin held on well as it enters its fourth weekend in release. The latest Disney live-action reimagining dipped just -32% for an estimated $16.7 million three-day, pushing its domestic cume just shy of $264 million. Internationally the film added another $47.5 million this weekend for an overseas cume that now totals over $461 million and a global tally just shy of $725 million.

    Disney's release of Fox's Dark Phoenix cratered in its second weekend, dropping a massive -72.6% for an estimated $9 million three-day and a domestic gross that now tops $51 million. This is the second largest second weekend drop for a film playing in over 3,500 theaters in its second weekend behind only 2015's Fifty Shades of Grey (-73.9%). Additionally, Dark Phoenix earned an estimated $24.2 million in its second weekend of release internationally, raising the overall overseas cume to $152.5 million for a global haul that now tops $204 million.

    Rounding out the top five is Paramount's Rocketman, which dipped -36% as it entered its third week in release with an estimated $8.8 million for a domestic cume that now totals over $66 million. The film also added another $8.5 million internationally for a global cume that now tops $133 million.

    Finishing outside the top five we find WB's release of Shaft, which the studio was expecting to debut somewhere around $15 million, but it could only muster an estimated $8.3 million from 2,952 locations. That said, while critical response was mixed-to-negative, opening day audiences gave the film an "A" CinemaScore, though with an opening this low the film's fate is most likely sealed. Additionally, the film played to a crowd that was 54% female and 84% of the overall audience came in aged 25 years or older.

    Further down the list, in ninth place, is Amazon Studios's Late Night, which expanded into 2,220 locations (+2,216) and delivered an estimated $5.1 million. Amazon acquired the film, which stars Emma Thompson and Mindy Kailing, whom also wrote the screenplay, at this year's Sundance Film Festival for a record $13 million and while this is hardly a great opening, it should have a long life on Amazon's Prime Video platform. Friday's audience gave the film a "B+" CinemaScore.

    Outside the top ten we find Focus's release of Jim Jarmusch's star-studded zombie comedy The Dead Don't Die, which opened in 613 locations with an estimated $2.5 million. Exit polls show 58% of the opening weekend crowd was male and 64% were aged 35 or older.

    Next weekend should see the conclusion of the sequel slump as Disney and Pixar's Toy Story 4 makes way for 4,400+ locations alongside UA Releasing's Child's Play remake, Lionsgate's Anna and Neon's debut of Wild Rose.

    'Toy Story 4' Tops the Weekend Box Office With $118 Million

    Disney and Pixar's Toy Story 4 topped the weekend box office and did so with the franchise's largest opening weekend yet, but even it seems to have been bitten by the summer's sequel slump as it too delivered well below studio and industry expectations. On top of that, UA Releasing's Child's Play finished in second place while also missing forecasted pre-weekend expectations while Lionsgate and Summit's Anna fell just shy of a spot in the top ten.

    With an estimated $118 million, Disney and Pixar's Toy Story 4 topped the weekend box office, though fell well short of the studio's $140+ million expectations, not to mention Mojo's lofty weekend forecast. The performance is, however, the best of the franchise, topping Toy Story 3's $110.3 million opening back in 2010 and fourth largest animated opening ever, which are hardly milestones you can ignore. It's also worth mentioning this is the third largest opening weekend of the year, giving Disney the top four openings of 2019.

    Also in Toy Story 4's favor is some of the best reviews of the franchise to go along with an "A" CinemaScore from opening day audiences. On top of that, the film has a long runaway ahead of it as the next major family film isn't until July 19 and it is yet another Disney picture in The Lion King. It also isn't until the mid-August release of Sony's The Angry Birds Movie 2 that another animated feature hits theaters, giving Toy Story 4 plenty of room to breathe.

    To go along with strong reviews and an "A" CinemaScore, the film played to an opening weekend audience that was 52% female and 45% of the crowd was aged 25 or older. Looking at Pixar's last ten releases, the average multiplier is 3.44x, which would suggest a domestic run for Toy Story 4 over $400 million and looking at the animated studio's past June releases, that multiplier goes up to 3.56x, suggesting a possible domestic run over $420 million.

    Internationally, Toy Story 4 brought in $120 million form 37 markets, representing ~64% of the overall marketplace and a $238 million global launch. The top market was Mexico, where the film opened with an estimated $23.4 million, representing the third highest opening of all-time in the market behind just Avengers: Endgame and Avengers: Infinity War. From there, the UK was the second largest opening with $15 million followed by China ($13.4m), Brazil ($9.6m), Korea ($8.5m), Argentina ($6.9m) and Australia ($6.1m). The film will open in France and Italy next weekend followed by openings in Japan (Jul 12) and Germany (Aug 15).

    UA Releasing's Child's Play delivered a second place finish with an estimated $14 million. Heading into the weekend the film was tracking similarly to Universal and Blumhouse's Ma, which debuted with over $18 million just a few weeks ago, and even the film's Thursday night previews ($1.65 million) suggested it was well on its way to a similar opening. However, it was unable to sustain its momentum and came up shy of the $16-18 million pre-weekend expectations. The film carries a reported budget around $10 million and received a "C+" CinemaScore from opening day crowds.

    Exits show Child's Play played to an audience that was 52% male and 61% were over the age of 25. These demos are important when you consider Ma played to an audience that was 53% female and only 53% were aged 25 or older as we look ahead to next week, which sees Annabelle Comes Home arriving on Wednesday. That film should play to a crowd similar to Ma, leaning a bit younger and playing to a larger female audience, perhaps allowing both to pleasantly coexist for a couple of weekends.

    Landing in third position is Disney's Aladdin with an estimated $12.2 million, dipping just -29.5% as it enters its fifth week in release with a domestic cume just shy of $288 million. Internationally, the film added nearly $33 million this weekend for an overseas cume that now totals $522.6 million and a global tally topping $810 million.

    Sony's Men in Black International is already cratering after a disappointing debut last weekend, dropping -64% in its sophomore frame with an estimated $10.75 million and a domestic cume that now totals just over $52 million after ten days in release. Internationally, the film added just over $30 million for an international cume topping $129 million and a worldwide total just over $182 million.

    Rounding out the top five is Universal and Illumination's The Secret Life of Pets 2, which dipped -58% in the face of Toy Story 4's debut, with an estimated $10.3 million for the weekend. The film's domestic cume now stands at $117.5 million as it enters its third week in release. The film also added another $10.8 million internationally this weekend for an overseas cume that now totals over $77 million and a global tally just shy of $195 million.

    Outside not only the top five, but just missing the top ten, is Lionsgate's release of Summit's Anna. The action thriller from Luc Besson debuted with an estimated $3.5 million. The film received a "B+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, and of the overall audience, 61% were male and 88% were over the age of 25.

    Next weekend gets started on Wednesday with the release of the aforementioned Annabelle Comes Home, debuting in over 3,500 locations and then on Friday Universal will release Danny Boyle's Yesterday into ~2,600 theaters.

    Toy Story 4’ Bests ‘Annabelle Comes Home’ and ‘Yesterday’

    Woody, Buzz Lightyear and Forky are still ruling the box office. Despite solid debuts from newcomers “Annabelle Comes Home” and “Yesterday,” Disney and Pixar’s “Toy Story 4” easily dominated North America.

    The fourth chapter in the animated series collected another $58 million, boosting its domestic haul to a huge $237 million. After two weekends in theaters, “Toy Story 4” is already the fourth-highest grossing movie of the year. The first three spots – “Avengers: Endgame” ($841 million), “Captain Marvel” ($428 million), and “Aladdin” ($306 million) – all belong to Disney as well. Overseas, “Toy Story 4” picked up a solid $80 million for a global tally of $496 million.

    Warner Bros. and New Line’s “Annabelle Comes Home,” the seventh installment in the Conjuring Universe, had the best showing among new releases. The supernatural horror film debuted in second place, earning $20 million over the weekend and $31.2 million since launching on Wednesday. While those ticket sales represent a franchise-low debut for the Conjuring series, its low production budget still marks a win for the studio. Gary Dauberman wrote and directed “Annabelle Comes Home,” which stars Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga and Mckenna Grace. The spooky sequel kicked off at the international box office with $45 million, taking its worldwide start to $76 million.

    Females accounted for 57% of opening weekend audiences, with 53% of crowds under the age of 25. Overseas, “Annabelle Comes Home” brought in $45 million for a global start of $76.2 million.

    “The interesting part of this weekend is the counter-programming that’s out there,” said Jeff Goldstein, Warner Bros. domestic distribution chief. “The fact that ‘Yesterday’ did so strongly and [‘Annabelle Comes Home’] got to $31.2 million shows the health of our business. It can be tricky to find your audience, you just have to be more strategic.”

    In a close third, Universal and Working Title’s “Yesterday” launched with $17 million from 2,603 venues. The romantic comedy follows an aspiring songwriter (newcomer Himesh Patel) who, after a freak accident, discovers he’s the only person who remembers the Beatles. “Yesterday” was directed by Danny Boyle (“Slumdog Millionaire,” “Trainspotting”) and written by Richard Curtis (“Love Actually”). Rights to the catalog of John, Paul, George and Ringo’s greatest hits don’t come cheap, so Universal is hoping “Yesterday” has a long and winding road in theaters. The jukebox musical pulled in $7.7 million from foreign markets, bringing its weekend total to $24.7 million globally.”Yesterday” appealed to an older female audience. Women represented 56% of ticket buyers, while 75% of moviegoers were over the age of 25. It carries an A- CinemaScore.

    “We know our audience is older,” Jim Orr, Universal’s president of domestic distribution, pointed out. “That group doesn’t necessarily run out opening weekend. Our audience scores on PostTrak and Rotten Tomatoes are tremendous. That combined should lead us to a long, healthy run at the domestic box office.”

    A little farther down on domestic box office charts is “Avengers: Endgame,” which returned to the top 10 after Disney re-released the blockbuster with an unfinished deleted scene that didn’t make it into the initial film. The special screening, which also included a video introduction from director Anthony Russo and a sneak peek at “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” is in a bid to take down “Avatar” as the biggest movie of all time.

    “Avengers: Endgame” added another $5.5 million in its 10th weekend of release, almost a 200% jump in ticket sales. That brings its box office receipts to $841 million in North America and $2.76 billion worldwide. The new numbers put Marvel’s juggernaut roughly $26 million behind “Avatar,” which has remained the highest-grossing film of all time for nearly a decade with $2.78 billion in global ticket sales.

    In fourth place, Disney’s “Aladdin” generated $9.3 million in its sixth weekend in theaters, pushing it past the $300 million mark at the domestic box office. The live-action remake has now earned $306 million in North America and $568 million internationally.

    Rounding out the top five is Universal and Illumination’s “The Secret Life of Pets 2” with $7 million. The animated sequel has now earned $131 million in North America.

    In other box office milestones, Lionsgate’s “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum” crossed $300 million worldwide. The Keanu Reeves-led sequel picked up $3 million this weekend, taking its domestic tally to $161 million.

    As a whole, the domestic box office is down almost 10%, according to Comscore. Industry watchers are hopeful that “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” “The Lion King” and “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw” can help reverse the decline in ticket sales and push this summer to record heights.

    It's a nice movie, I watched it last night. I expected Ed Sheeran's presence to annoy me but it did not.

    'Spider-Man: Far from Home' Delivers Record $185 Million Opening

    It has been a while since we saw a sequel deliver on expectations, but, this weekend, Sony's Spider-Man: Far from Home delivered the largest six-day opening ever for a Tuesday release, leading the weekend box office and helping the top 12 outperform the same weekend last year for the first time in four weeks. Meanwhile, A24's Midsommar delivered the largest indie opening of the year while landing just outside the weekend top five.

    Sony's Spider-Man: Far from Home delivered a #1 finish at the weekend box office as Marvel still proves mighty. The pic debuted on Tuesday last week, entering the weekend with over $91 million already in its coffers, and over the three-day it topped that figure, bringing in an estimated $93.6 million for a six-day start totaling over $185 million. The performance is the largest six-day opening for a Tuesday opener and 22nd largest six-day performance of all-time. This is on top of the film already delivering the largest Tuesday opening day ever, not to mention the second widest opening ever as it debuted in a massive 4,634 locations.

    It's difficult to compare the film's debut to 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming given the Tuesday debut, but after six days Far from Home is already out-pacing its predecessor by over $30 million. The film is also a hit with audiences, just as it was with critics, earning an "A" CinemaScore from opening day crowds and currently sitting with an 8.1/10 rating from IMDb users. Opening weekend crowds were 60% male with 42% of the overall audience coming in aged 25 or older.

    Internationally, Far from Home debuted in three markets last weekend and this weekend expanded that reach to all but Italy, where the film will launch this coming Wednesday. After a strong start last weekend the webslinger delivered $244 million from 66 markets this weekend for an overseas cume that now totals $395 million and a global tally reaching $580 million. Top market debuts include Tuesday's launch in South Korea where the film has brought in $33.8 million. Additionally, the UK's six-day launch totals $17.8 million and Mexico delivered $13.9 million in four days. The film began playing on Monday in Australia where it has now delivered nearly $12 million and Russia added another $9.6 million. The film's top overseas market is China, where it opened last weekend, and this weekend the film's cume now climbs to over $167 million.

    Disney and Pixar's Toy Story 4 moves to second place in its third weekend, bringing in an estimated $34.4 million, pushing the film's domestic cume over $300 million to $306.6 million. Internationally, the animated feature delivered over $43 million this weekend for an overseas cume that now stands at $343.4 million and a global cume that now totals $650 million.

    Universal's Yesterday dipped just -37% in its second weekend, bringing in an estimated $10.75 million and pushing its domestic cume to $36.8 million after ten days in release. Yesterday also added seven new locations internationally this weekend including France ($1.3m) and Spain ($1m), and brought in nearly $8 million from 35 markets now in play. Overall the film's overseas cume now totals over $20 million for a $57 million global tally.

    WB's Annabelle Comes Home landed in fourth with an estimated $9.75 million, dipping -52% in its second weekend as the film's domestic cume now tops $50 million after 12 days in release. Internationally, the film added over $20 million from 9 markets this weekend for an overseas cume just shy of $85 million and a worldwide total creeping up on $135 million.

    Rounding out the top five is Disney's Aladdin, which added another $7.6 million this weekend as the film's domestic cume now totals over $320 million. Internationally, the film brought in another $16.2 million this weekend as the overseas cume climbs over $600 million for a worldwide total that now totals over $921 million.

    Finishing just outside the top five is A24's Midsommar, which opened on Wednesday last week and delivered an estimated $6.56 million for the three-day weekend while finishing with nearly $11 million for the five-day frame. The film received a "C+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, which is actually an improvement over writer/director Ari Aster's Hereditary, which enjoyed a 3.2x multiplier last June.

    Next weekend sees the release of Paramount's crocodile thriller Crawl and R-rated Fox comedy Stuber.

    'Spider-Man: Far from Home' Repeats at #1, Nearing $850 Million Worldwide

    It was a repeat weekend for last week's top two films as Sony's Spider-Man: Far from Home topped the weekend while nearing $850 million globally and Disney and Pixar's Toy Story 4 found itself in the runner-up position while becoming the fifth largest Pixar release domestically ever. As for the weekend's new wide releases, both played mostly to expectations with Paramount's Crawl finishing in third and Disney's release of Fox's Stuber landing in fourth.

    Sony's Spider-Man: Far from Home delivered a repeat performance atop the weekend box office, bringing in an estimated $45.3 million, signaling a -51% drop as its domestic cume now stands just shy of $275 million. Meanwhile, the film added $100 million overseas this weekend, pushing the global cume just shy of $850 million after 17 days of release. Far from Home's $572.5 million international haul now makes it the highest grossing Spider-Man movie internationally, topping Spider-Man 3's $555 million overseas total. China remains the film's top international market where it's estimated cume currently stands at $191.8 million along with South Korea ($49.7m), UK ($28.6m), Mexico ($24.1m), Brazil ($18m), Australia ($20.1m), France ($14.8m), Indonesia ($15.9m), Russia ($17m) and Germany ($11.1m).

    In the runner-up position for the second weekend in a row is Disney and Pixar's Toy Story 4, dipping -39% for an estimated $20.66 million. The film's domestic cume stands at $346 million as it enters its fourth weekend in release, now ranking as the fifth largest Pixar release domestically of all-time.

    Internationally, Toy Story 4 added $48.1 million for an overseas cume that now totals nearly $425 million and a global tally topping $771 million. Among the weekend's new markets, the film debuted in Japan with an estimated $15.3 million, setting the highest Disney Animation/Pixar opening of all-time in the market. The film also opened in Hong Kong with an estimated $4.6 million, which also served as a record for a Disney Animation/Pixar title. The final key market where the film has yet to release is Germany where it will open on August 15.

    In third we come to the first of the weekend's two new wide releases in Paramount's R-rated alligator thriller Crawl, which debuted just shy of Mojo's pre-weekend forecast with an estimated $12 million. The performance tops our pre-weekend comp 47 Meters Down, which opened with $11.2 million back in June 2017 before finishing with over $44 million domestically and has a sequel set to hit theaters next month.

    Crawl received a "B" CinemaScore from opening day audiences and played to a crowd that was 51% male. Additionally, 64% of the opening weekend audience was aged 25 or older.

    Internationally, Crawl debuted in 20 markets and brought in an estimated $4.8 million with Malaysia's $1 million opening leading the way. Upcoming key releases include a July 24 release in France followed by Mexico (Aug 9), Russia (Aug 22), Germany (Aug 22), the UK (Aug 23), Spain (Aug 23) and Brazil (Sep 26).

    Disney's release of Fox's R-rated comedy Stuber stumbled into fourth with an estimated $8 million. The film received a "B" CinemaScore from opening day audiences while playing to a crowd that was 56% male and 61% of the overall audience was aged 25 or older.

    Internationally, Stuber opened in nine markets with an estimated $3 million. The film's top market is Russia where it opened with $500k with key upcoming openings including Mexico (Jul 26), Germany (Aug 22), Italy (Aug 29), Spain (Sep 13), France (Oct 30) and Brazil (Nov 7).

    Rounding out the top five is Universal's Yesterday with an estimated $6.75 million, dropping just -33% as it enters its third week in release. The film's domestic cume now stands at $48.3 million. The film also added another $7.8 million internationally from 42 markets currently in play, pushing the overseas cume over $32 million for a global tally that now stands at $80.5 million.

    In limited release, A24's The Farewell debuted in four locations with an estimated $351,330, for the best opening weekend theater average of the year so far, coming in at $87,833 per theater. The film will expand into top markets next weekend, ahead of a nationwide expansion on August 2.

    Next weekend will belong to Disney's The Lion King, which will open in over 4,500 locations with high expectations for its opening weekend. On that note, The Lion King already began its international roll-out this weekend, opening in China with an estimated $54.7 million and will open in all other international markets next weekend with the U.S. with the exception of Hong Kong, Japan and Italy.
