    'Glass' Fills Up with $40.58M Debut While 'Dragon Ball' Delivers Top Five Opening



    Universal's Glass, from Blinding Edge Pictures and Blumhouse Productions, was unable to quite reach the lofty heights some had expected heading into the weekend, but the film still managed a solid #1 start, playing very similarly to its predecessor based on current estimates. Glass, however, might not be the biggest news of the weekend when you consider the monster debut of FUNimation's Dragon Ball Super: Broly, which is looking at a possible third place finish based on early estimates, but it's important to note current results are not from the film's domestic distributor, FUNimation. Elsewhere, STX's The Upside delivered on Mojo's pre-weekend expectations with a strong second weekend while WB's Aquaman topped $300 million domestically.

    With an estimated $40.58 million over the three-day weekend, Universal anticipates M. Night Shyamalan's Glass will reach $47 million for the four-day holiday weekend. The performance is a bit shy of the studio's $50 million expectations, but the three-day already more than doubles the film's reported $20 million budget. In terms of some of the records it was eying this weekend, the three-day performance makes it the fourth largest January opening of all-time while on track to deliver the third largest Martin Luther King weekend performance of all-time.

    Looking ahead, the film's debut is just ahead of 2017's Split, which opened with $40 million over the same weekend in 2017 and went on to gross over $138 million at the domestic box office. Glass received a "B" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, which is actually a grade higher than the "C" Unbreakable earned back in 2000, though behind Split's "B+" which would also seem to reflect the critical response which saw Split receive a 76% RottenTomatoes rating compared to the 35% for Glass. Audiences were 54% male with 65% of the audience coming in aged 25 or older. The difference in gender demographic is an interesting one considering Split played more like a well-reviewed horror film over its run, playing to an audience that was 52% female, not to mention a much younger crowd with 48% of Split's opening audience aged 25 or older. That said, Glass could be looking at a domestic performance ending around $85-95 million.

    Internationally, Glass is being distributed by Buena Vista International (excluding China) and grossed $48.5 million this weekend from 55 markets. Leading the way was Russia with an estimated $5.2 million followed by Mexico ($4.5m), UK ($4.3m), France ($3.4m), Korea ($2.8m), Germany ($2.8m), Australia ($2.4m), Italy ($2.1m), Spain ($2.0m), Brazil ($1.5m) and Indonesia ($1.5m). Based on current exchange rates in the same suite of markets, Glass is outpacing Split by approximately +13%.

    Finishing in second, following a strong debut last weekend, is STXfilms and Lantern Entainment's The Upside, dipping just -23% in its sophomore frame for an estimated $15.67 million. The studio anticipates the film will top $19.5 million over the 4-day Martin Luther King holiday weekend for a domestic cume just shy of $48 million after 11 days in release. The Upside has also brought in $4.1 million internationally thus far.

    Looking at a surprise third place position is FUNimation's Dragon Ball Super: Broly, though, as noted in our lede, the studio is not reporting domestic grosses this morning. That said, results from third party sources show the film neck-and-neck with WB's Aquaman for a domestic three-day topping $10 million and a five-day total following its Wednesday release topping $21 million. On the lower end of projections, one source puts the film's three-day at $9.3 million, which is still incredibly impressive and enough for a fourth place finish.

    Internationally, Dragon Ball is entering its seventh week in release and does so with an estimated $5.3 million from 18 markets for an international cume that now totals $65.8 million for a global tally just shy of $87 million. The film's top market is Japan with $33.3 million followed by Mexico where the film is in its second weekend and has brought in $9.5 million so far.

    As for Aquaman, the film added an estimated $10.3 million to its domestic total this weekend, which now stands at $304.3 million. The film is still in fourth place among previous releases in the DC Extended Universe. The film also added $14.3 million from 79 overseas markets this weekend, bringing the international cume to $759.1 million for a global tally of $1.06 billion, just a little over $21 million shy of The Dark Knight Rises as it will soon become the highest grossing worldwide release among DC Comics adaptations.

    Rounding out the top five is Sony's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which enjoyed the smallest drop in the top ten (-19.8%) with an estimated $7.25 million for the three-day. The film is expected to top $9 million over the four-day weekend, pushing the film's domestic cume over $160 million, which would put it ~$9 million shy of topping Hotel Transylvania 2 as Sony Animation's highest grossing domestic release of all-time. Internationally, the film added another $4.7 million this weekend, pushing its worldwide total over $322 million.

    Elsewhere, on its 78th day of release, Fox's Bohemian Rhapsody topped $200 million domestically this weekend as the film continues to play almost neck-and-neck with WB's A Star is Born, which topped $200 million on its 80th day of release. After an additional $639k this weekend, A Star is Born has now grossed just shy of $205 million domestically. Worldwide, however, it's no competition with Bohemian Rhapsody adding another $11.3 million this weekend for an international cume that has now reached $596 million for a global tally $2 million shy of $800 million.

    In limited release, Abramorama's Who Will Write Our History debuted with $12,719 in one theater; Distrib's The Heiresses opened in two locations with $11,288; and IFC's An Acceptable Loss opened in one theater with an estimated $5,103.

    Next weekend sees the release of Fox's The Kid Who Would be King in ~3,400 locations along with Aviron's Serenity in ~2,500 theaters. It will also be interesting to see how well this year's crop of awards contenders perform following Tuesday's Oscar nominations announcement.

    You can check out this weekend's three-day estimated results right here and we'll have four-day estimates tomorrow morning followed by full three and four-day weekend actuals on Tuesday afternoon.

    'Glass' Repeats Atop the Weekend Box Office While New Releases Struggle



    The weekend turned out a bit better than expected with Universal's Glass holding on to the top spot with an estimated $19 million on its way to a $100+ million domestic run, though the weekend's newcomers in Fox's The Kid Who Would be King and Serenity struggled. Meanwhile this year's crop of Oscar nominees saw Green Book re-enter the top ten following its five nominations while The Favourite, Bohemian Rhapsody and A Star is Born all improved compared to last weekend.

    Finishing with an estimated $19 million, Universal's Glass dipped -53% in its second weekend for a domestic cume that now stands at $73.5 million after just ten days in release. Internationally, the film added $23.6 million from 55 markets for an overseas cume totaling $89.1 million and a global tally reaching $162.7 million. The film is now open in all markets except for China where it still does not have an official release date.

    Second place went to The Upside, which continues its impressive run, dipping just -18.4% this weekend for an estimated $12.2 million and a domestic cume that now tops $63 million. The performance is a notch ahead of Mojo's lofty, pre-weekend projections, and other than the expansion of Green Book, it currently has the best hold among holdover films in the top ten. Internationally, the film brought in an estimated $1.1 million this weekend for an international cume totaling $6.1 million, from 38 markets released for a worldwide tally topping $69 million.

    For now, Warner Bros.'s Aquaman holds a narrow lead for third place, bringing in an estimated $7.35 million for a domestic cume that now tops $316 million. In even bigger news, the film has now topped $1.09 billion at the global box office making it the largest DC Comics adaptation of all-time globally, the third largest WB movie all-time worldwide and now ranks as the 25th largest worldwide release ever.

    In fourth, by just $100k, is Fox's The Kid Who Would be King with an estimated $7.25 million debut. Budgeted at a reported $59 million, the family feature had strong reviews heading into the weekend, but just wasn't able to capture audience attention. Opening day audiences gave the film a "B+" CinemaScore while the overall audience coming in was 53% female and 53% of the opening weekend crowd was aged 25 or older. Internationally, the film began playing last weekend and this weekend added $1.94 million for an overseas total that now stands at $3.2 million as it is now in just 20 markets.

    Rounding out the top five is Sony's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse with an estimated $6.15 million bringing the film's domestic cume to $169 million. The film is now less than $700k behind Hotel Transylvania 2, on its way to becoming the highest grossing domestic release ever for Sony Animation. Internationally the film added $2.8 million this weekend for an overseas cume of $169.1 million and a global tally topping $338 million.

    Just outside the top five is Universal's Oscar contender Green Book, which expanded into 2,430 locations (+1,518) this weekend following this week's Oscar nominations and saw a +150% increase with an estimated $5.4 million three-day. The film has now grossed nearly $50 million domestically as it enters its eleventh week in release. Internationally, the film's release is being handled by Lionsgate and Amblin, and it is playing in 33 markets where it grossed $5.7 million this weekend for an international cume topping $10 million and a worldwide gross that currently stands at $59.3 million.

    It isn't until eighth position that we find Aviron's release of Serenity which was unable to generate much attention, debuting with just $4.8 million from 2,561 locations ($1,874 PTA). Opening day audiences seemed to agree with critics, giving the film a "D+" CinemaScore. Overall, the opening weekend crowd was split 50/50 male vs. female while 73% of the audience coming in was aged 25 or older.

    Looking at a few of the other Oscar contenders that expanded this weekend, Fox Searchlight's The Favourite brought in an estimated $2.56 million (+214%) after adding over one thousand theaters as its domestic cume now tops $26 million. Fox's Bohemian Rhapsody is slowly creeping up on A Star is Born's domestic cume after bringing in nearly $2.5 million (+7.6%) from 1,423 locations for a domestic total that now stands at $205.8 million. Speaking of A Star is Born, it too added some theaters this weekend, playing in 1,192 locations (+777) from which it brought in an estimated $1.26 million for a domestic cume that now stands at $206.3 million.

    This weekend also saw Clint Eastwood's The Mule top $100 million on its 45th day of release.

    In limited release, Greenwich's The Invisibles opened with $27,000 from four theaters ($6,750 PTA); Sony Classics debuted the Foreign Language contender Never Look Away in one theater from which it brought in $26,270, enough for the largest per theater average for the weekend; Kino Lorber's release of Jean-Luc Godard's The Image Book brought in $15,200 from three locations ($5,067 PTA); and Cinema Libre's Jihadists debuted in one theater with $1,188.

    Next weekend sees the release of Sony's remake of Miss Bala opening in ~2,000 locations while Fox International will debut Ek Ladki Ko Dekah Toh Aisa Laga in ~175 theaters and Bleecker will release Arctic in four locations.

    'Glass' Threepeats at #1 Over Dismal Super Bowl Weekend



    It was an incredibly soft start to the February box office with the top 12 grossing just a combined $55.4 million. You'd have to go back to the first weekend in September 2017 to find a worse performance from the top twelve films. The top of the box office was a repeat from the last three weekends with Glass taking the top spot while Sony's Miss Bala debuted in third place. Overall, the weekend is expected to be the worst Super Bowl weekend at the box office since 2000 when Destination Films's Eye of the Beholder starring Ashley Judd and Ewan McGregor topped the box office.

    Universal's Glass topped the weekend box office for a third straight week, bringing in an estimated $9.5 million, pushing the film's domestic gross over $88 million. Internationally the film added $12.2 million this weekend from 54 markets, for an overseas cume that now totals over $110 million and a global tally just shy of $200 million.

    Placing second for a third straight weekend is STXFilms's The Upside, which continues a strong domestic run with a cume that has now topped $75.5 million. This weekend the film dipped just -26% for a $8.85 million fourth weekend.

    Sony's Miss Bala landed in third position over its debut, pulling in an estimated $6.6 million from 2,203 locations. The performance is on the soft side for the $15 million production, which entered the weekend with mixed-to-negative reviews — 41 on Metacritic and 27% on RottenTomatoes — and there's also a curious absence of the film's CinemaScore despite the polling service reporting on Twitter they would be polling the film this weekend. To go by audience ratings at RottenTomatoes, 61% said they liked it, while the rating on IMDb tells a different story with a rating of 4.9/10. Opening weekend crowds broke down 54% female and 66% were 25 years of age or older.

    WB's Aquaman landed in fourth place, dipping -34% for an estimated $4.78 million and a domestic cume that now totals $323.5 million. The film also brought in another $4.6 million internationally this weekend for a global cume that now totals $1.106 billion with the film set to open in Japan this coming Friday, February 8.

    Rounding out the top five was Sony's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse with an estimated $4.4 million for a domestic cume that now tops $175 million, now ranking as Sony Animation's highest grossing domestic release of all-time. The film also added another $1.6 million internationally this weekend for an overseas cume that now totals $172 million.

    Just outside the top five is Universal's Oscar contender Green Book, which dipped just -21% in its second weekend since its post-Oscar nomination expansion. The film grossed an estimated $4.3 million over the three-day for a domestic cume that now tops $55 million. Internationally the film also expanded its footprint, delivering an estimated $11.8 million from nearly 50 markets for an international total that now tops $25 million.

    Rounding out the top ten was WB's release of Peter Jackson's World War I documentary They Shall Not Grow Old, which scored a massive $8.3 million from just three event screenings prior to this weekend's traditional release in 735 locations. The film ended up delivering an estimated $2.4 million over the three-day for a domestic total that now stands at $10.7 million.

    In limited release, Fox International's Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga brought in $600k from 193 locations ($3,109 PTA); Bleecker's Arctic delivered an estimated $56,463 from four theaters ($14,116 PTA); Greenwich released Piercing in 35 locations where it brought in $8,500 ($340 PTA); and Cinema Guild's The Wild Pear Tree brought in $5,392 from one theater.

    Next weekend should see much better results with Warner Bros. debuting The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part in over 4,100 locations along with Paramount's release of the R-rated comedy What Men Want, Summit's Cold Pursuit and Orion Pictures's debut of The Prodigy.

    Re: Box Office - Updated Every Monday

    Glad to see Glass still doing well as well as Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. I looked above and saw Dragon Ball Super Broly doing well the week before. This Anime Animated film that I love has made overall 100 Million Dollars and will keep making more money as the Movie drops all over the world. It's one of the highest growing Animated films to come to the US since the Pokemon days it's top 3 right now.

    'LEGO Movie 2' Debuts with Weaker Than Expected, $34M Opening



    The weekend didn't turn out to be quite as big as expected, thanks mostly due to a severe underperformance from Warner Bros.'s The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, which debuted approximately $20 million below expectations as franchise fatigue seems to have settled in rather quickly. Otherwise, the rest of the weekend's new releases fell, for the most part, within expectations with What Men Want finishing in the runner-up position followed by Lionsgate's release of Summit's Cold Pursuit while Orion's The Prodigy fell just a bit outside industry expectations.

    At the top of the box office, Warner Bros.'s The LEGO Movie 2 brought in an estimated $34.4 million, falling well short of the anticipated $50-55 million the studio was anticipating heading into the weekend. The performance is also well below the $69 million the first film opened with back in February 2014 as well as below the $53 million opening for The LEGO Batman Movie in February 2017. That same year WB debuted a second LEGO feature in The LEGO Ninjago Movie, which opened with a franchise low, $20.4 million in September 2017. The dwindling returns for the films in this franchise suggests the studio jumped the gun with so many spin-offs before actually establishing the overall series.

    That said, critics have given three of the four films (Ninjago excluded) top marks, with those three declared "Certified Fresh" on RottenTomatoes and the same going for audience response on those same three films. Audiences gave LEGO 2 an "A-" CinemaScore, matching the same score for LEGO Batman, though the films have been trending increasingly male with LEGO 2 playing to an audience that was 57% male, the largest gender discrepancy among all four films so far. Overall, however, ancillaries should most likely remain high with LEGO 2 suggesting this is far from the end of the franchise, and WB may simply need to change tact looking ahead.

    Internationally, LEGO 2 brought in an estimated $18.1 million from 63 overseas markets. Comparatively, the first LEGO Movie brought in $18.4 million in its first weekend from ~30 fewer markets. As for the sequel's performance, the UK led the way with $5.3 million followed by Russia ($1.7m), Poland ($1.3m), Germany ($1.1m), Spain ($830k), Brazil ($707k), the Netherlands ($622k) and South Korea ($500k). The film will open in Mexico on February 14 followed by openings in France (Feb 20), Italy (Feb 21) and Australia (Mar 21).

    Paramount's What Women Want came in smack dab in the middle of studio expectations, debuting with an estimated $19 million from 2,912 locations. The film entered the weekend with relatively weak reviews — 47% on RottenTomatoes and 51 on Metacritic — and audiences seem to have agreed based on a 49% audience score at RottenTomatoes and a very weak, 3.6/10 on IMDb. That said, the film's CinemaScore was still an "A-", matching the likes of Night School, which pulled off a 2.83x multiplier, which would mean a $53 million run for What Men Want on a reported $20 million budget should it enjoy a similar run.

    Lionsgate's release of Summit's Cold Pursuit slightly exceeded expectations with an $10.8 million opening from 2,630 locations. The film played to an opening weekend crowd that was 58% male with 79% of the overall audience coming in aged 25 or older, playing to similar demographics to that of star Liam Neeson's The Commuter, which opened last January with $13.7 million and went on to gross over $36 million. A similar run for Cold Pursuit would have it ending its run just shy of $30 million domestic. The film received a "B-" CinemaScore.

    In fourth is STXFilms's The Upside, continuing its strong week-over-week performance, this time dipping just -17% compared to last weekend with an estimated $7.2 million and a domestic cume that now stands at $85.8 million, well on its way to a $100 million domestic run. The film has also brought in $8.9 million internationally so far, boosting its worldwide cume to $94.7 million.

    Rounding out the top five is Universal's Glass with an estimated $5.8 million for a domestic cume that now totals $98.4 million. The film also added $6.6 million internationally this weekend for an overseas cume that now totals $123 million, pushing its global cume over $221 million.

    Finishing outside the top five is Orion's release of the horror thriller The Prodigy, which debuted in 2,530 locations with an estimated $6 million. The performance is short of the $7-9 million the studio was anticipating heading into the weekend, but with a $6 million budget the film should break even easily enough, though weak reviews and a relatively poor audience response means it won't be sticking around too long. Overall, the film played to an audience that was 54% male with 61% of the crowd coming in aged 25 or older. The film received a "C+" CinemaScore.

    Elsewhere in the top ten, Universal's Green Book added $3.56 million domestically for a cume totaling $61.5 million while Lionsgate's and Amblin's release of the film overseas added an additional $11.4 million internationally this weekend for a worldwide cume topping $106 million for the Oscar contender.

    In limited release Focus Features's Everybody Knows, starring Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz, opened in four locations in New York and Los Angeles with an estimated $75,000 ($18,750 PTA). Additionally, Magnolia released the 2019 Oscar Nominated Short Films in 265 theaters, the widest release ever in the distributor's 14 years of releasing the shorts and the result was the largest debut, coming in at an estimated $912,000 ($3,442 PTA).

    Additional limited releases include Gunpowder & Sky's Lords of Chaos, which opened in four theaters with an estimated $28,086 ($7,021 PTA); Good Deed's To Dust opened with $8,400 in one theater; and STX released Peppa Celebrates Chinese New Year in 67 locations with an estimated $70,000 ($1,045 PTA) for a $127,195 cume since debuting on Wednesday.

    Next weekend sees the release of the Blumhouse sequel Happy Death Day 2U, which Universal will debut in ~3,000 locations and WB's release of New Line's Isn't It Romantic with Rebel Wilson, opening in 3,300+ theaters.

    Fox's 'Alita' Leads Worst President's Day Weekend in 15 Years



    The three-day President's Day weekend last year saw the top twelve gross over $270 million, the bulk of which was due to the over $202 million three-day opening for Black Panther, accounting for nearly 74% of the combined top twelve gross. This year didn't have such a monster release, and while expectations were muted, the top twelve's combined $109.1 million makes for the worst three-day President's Day weekend since 2004.

    Leading the charge was Fox's Alita: Battle Angel, delivering $27.8 million for the three-day. Elsewhere, while Universal's release of Blumhouse's Happy Death Day 2U fell short of expectations, it has already grossed more than its production budget and WB's release of New Line's Isn't It Romantic took advantage of Valentine's Day leading into the weekend and delivered a third place finish.

    Fox's Alita: Battle Angel topped the weekend box office with ease, outperforming expectations and delivering an estimated $27.8 million over the three-day weekend with expectations to hit over $33 million for the four-day weekend. The result would push the film's five-day cume over $41 million, well ahead of the $30 million expectations for the film heading into the weekend. Of course, despite the film's over-performance, it still carries a lofty $170 million price tag with sources suggesting it needs to gross $500-550 million globally to break even, which, at this point, looks nearly impossible.

    Internationally, Alita debuted in 11 markets last weekend and expanded to 86 total markets this weekend, delivering $56.1 million for an overseas cume that now stands at $94.3 million. Leading the way this weekend was the film's opening in Russia where it brought in $6.45 million followed by openings in France ($5.87m), Mexico ($4.18m), Australia ($2.97m), Germany ($2.96m), Thailand ($2.48m), Spain ($195m), UK ($1.8m), Vietnam ($1.5m) and Italy ($1.2m). The film's top market is South Korea where it added another $2.5 million this weekend for a cume that now totals $14.75 million. Alita will be releasing in China and Japan on February 22.

    WB's The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part dipped -37.8% over the three-day and delivered an estimated $21.2 million, pushing the film's domestic cume to $62.7 million. The film is expected to do well on President's Day, looking at a four-day total topping $27 million and a domestic cume just shy of $70 million by end of day Monday. Internationally it added over $12 million this weekend from 69 markets for a global cume that is now just shy of $98 million with releases in France and Italy this coming week followed by a March 21 release in Australia.

    Warner also landed in third place with the release of New Line's Isn't It Romantic starring Rebel Wilson. The film generated an estimated $14.2 million over the three-day and is expected to push toward $16.5 million for the four-day weekend. The result would give the film a $22-23 million six-day performance following its Wednesday debut. The film received a "B" CinemaScore and played to a crowd of which 80% were aged 25 and up.

    Paramount's What Men Want landed in fourth place, dipping -40% in its sophomore session, delivering an estimated $10.9 million for the three-day and is expected to top $12.5 million for the four-day weekend, resulting in a domestic cume just shy of $38 million come end of day Monday. The film also added $2.2 million from six overseas markets this weekend for an early international cume totaling $2.5 million.

    Rounding out the top five is Universal's release of Blumhouse Productions's Happy Death Day 2U, which brought in an estimated $9.8 million for the three-day weekend and is expected to deliver just over $11 million for the four-day weekend. After opening on Wednesday this would give the horror sequel a $15+ million six-day start, which is shy of the $20+ million expectations heading into its opening.

    It's difficult to suss out just why the film fell short of expectations, as our research led us to believe industry expectations were mostly spot on. IMDb page view performance heading into the film's opening was a bit further down than we might have liked heading into release, but we chalked that up to sequels typically pacing behind their predecessors. Though, with even that being said, six-day expectations for the sequel were still well below the over $26 million the first film opened with over just three days. Of course, it's important to remember that this film is carrying just a $9 million budget. 2U received a "B" CinemaScore, matching its predecessor, while playing to a crowd that was 51% female and 41% were aged 25 and older.

    Happy Death Day 2U also got its start internationally this weekend with $11.8 million in 41 markets, led by a $2.2 million performance in South Korea followed by France ($1m), Germany ($1m), UK & Ireland ($900k), Indonesia ($900k) and Spain ($500k). The film will open in Italy and Russia on February 28 followed by a July 12 release in Japan.

    A couple milestones to note include Universal's Glass, which recently topped $100 million domestically, and WB's Aquaman, with a domestic gross over $331 million, has now topped Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to become the second highest grossing domestic release among films in the DC Extended Universe behind only Wonder Woman ($412.56m)

    In limited release, MGM's Fighting with My Family debuted in four theaters this weekend ahead of its nationwide debut next weekend and brought in an estimated $131,625 for a strong, $32,906 per theater average.

    Additional limited releases include Janus Films's re-release of War and Peace into one theater where the seven hour feature from Sergey Bondarchuk brought in an estimated $22,000. Oscilloscope debuted CatVideoFest 2019 at Chicago's Music Box Theatre, where it grossed an estimated $11,000 after just two screenings; Sony Classics debuted Ruben Brandt, Collector in 2 locations where it brought in an estimated $6,394 ($3,197 PTA) and Cinema Guild's Hotel by the River opened in one theater with an estimated $5,870.

    Next weekend will see the wide release of Universal and DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World in over 4,000 locations. The film has been in release internationally for six weeks already, generating over $172 million from 49 markets and will arrive in theaters with expectations for a debut in line with its predecessors as Universal becomes the third different studio to release the film.

    'How to Train Your Dragon 3' Debuts with Franchise Best, $55.5 Million Debut



    The 2019 box office has finally received a jolt of energy with an impressive, $55.5 million debut for DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World. The performance led the weekend box office, closing out the final weekend within what has been a rough start to the first two months at the domestic box office this year. The weekend also saw MGM's expansion of Fighting with My Family, which debuted at the lower end of industry expectations, while Roadside's Run the Race found itself within the top ten from just 853 locations.

    With an estimated $55.5 million, Universal's release of the DreamWorks Animation title How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World delivered not only the #1 movie at this weekend's box office, but the largest debut of the year so far, surpassing Glass by more than $15 million. The opening is also the largest debut in the How to Train Your Dragon franchise, topping the $49.4 million opening for How to Train Your Dragon 2 back in 2014. The film's overall domestic performance so far totals over $58 million once you include the $2.5 million it brought in from an exclusive Fandango event earlier this month. The question now is to wonder how the film will perform from here.

    Following a $43.7 million opening, the first film went on to gross over $217.5 million in 2010, a nearly 5x multiplier. The second film, while still strong, mustered a 3.58x multiple and just over $177 million for its domestic run. Like its predecessors, Hidden World received an "A" CinemaScore and was well received by critics, earning a 91% score at RottenTomatoes. One interesting note is this is the first film in the franchise to play to an audience that skewed more male than female, albeit by a small margin, with males making up 51% of the opening weekend audience compared to 45% and 47% for the last two films. It also skewed slightly younger with 39% of the overall audience coming in aged 25 or older compared to 51% and 44% for its predecessors respectively.

    Looking ahead, Using the multipliers for the first two films gives us a range anywhere from $198 million to as much as $277+ million and the film does face genre competition in the relatively near future with Wonder Park opening in three weeks. That said, a $200+ million domestic performance feels like a sure bet at this point, which is great news for Universal with their first release since acquiring DreamWorks Animation back in 2016 for $3.8 billion not to mention Hidden World carries the lowest price tag among the three films in the franchise, coming in with a reported budget of $129 million vs. $165 million for the original and $145 million for the first sequel.

    And while the second film may not have lived up to its predecessor domestically, it more than made up for it overseas, outperforming the first film by more than $167 million internationally and The Hidden World appears to be following suit. After opening in just two markets six weeks ago, the film entered its seventh weekend in international release this weekend and is now playing in 53 territories including nine new markets this weekend. Leading the weekend charge was a #1 opening in Russia with $11.2 million followed by Spain where it also debuted atop the charts with an estimated $2.8 million. The film's top market is the UK where it has brought in over $20 million so far. Next weekend it continues its rollout with a March 1 debut in China followed by an August 23 release in Japan. The film has so far brought in $216.9 million overseas for a global tally that is currently just shy of $275 million.

    In second place is Fox's Alita: Battle Angel, which managed to outperform expectations last weekend, but this weekend suffered a setback. The film dipped a healthy -58% in its sophomore frame for a $12 million three-day, for a domestic total topping $60 million after 11 days in release. Internationally the film faired a bit better, debuting in China with an estimated $62.2 million for a #1 finish and contributing a significant portion of its overall $92.4 million overseas weekend. At this point Alita has brought in over $202 million internationally for a global cume totaling more than $263 million.

    Warner Bros. pulled into third position with The LEGO Movie 2, but it also found itself struggling in the face of the newest Dragon feature as it dipped -52% this weekend for an estimated $10 million three-day and a 17 day cume now totaling $83.6 million. Internationally, the film is also struggling, adding just $10.3 million from 73 markets this weekend for an international cume that now stands at $53 million. Overall the global tally stands at $136.6 million with Australia remaining the lone market yet to release, where the film will debut on March 21.

    In fourth position we come to MGM's expansion of the comedic drama Fighting with My Family. After opening in four theaters last weekend the film expanded into 2,711 locations this weekend and delivered a $8 million performance.

    WB's release of New Line's Isn't It Romantic rounded out the top five with an estimated $7.5 million, pushing its domestic cume approaching $34 million.

    Elsewhere in the top ten, STX's The Upside took in and estimated $3.2 million this weekend for a cume that is now just shy of $100 million, a milestone the film will most likely surpass on Monday. Internationally, the film has taken in $10.8 million from 52 markets released so far.

    Rounding out the top ten is Roadside's release of the Tim Tebow-produced Run the Race, which debuted in 853 theaters with an estimated $2.27 million. The film played to a crowd that was 53% female with 77% of the overall audience coming in aged 25 or older.

    In limited release, Fox's Total Dhamaal opened in 202 theaters with an estimated $950,000 ($4,703 PTA) and Santa Rita's The Iron Orchard debuted in eight theaters with $49,250 ($6,156 PTA).

    Next weekend sees the release of Focus's thriller Greta in ~2,000 theaters while Tyler Perry returns with his latest Madea feature in A Madea Family Funeral, debuting in ~2,350 theaters.

    You can check out all of this weekend's estimated results right here and we'll be updating our charts with weekend actuals on Monday afternoon.

    'How to Train Your Dragon 3' Holds off Madea's 'Family Funeral' at Box Office



    Universal and DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World was able to fend off Lionsgate's release of Tyler Perry's A Madea Family Funeral and retain the weekend's #1 spot at the box office even though Perry's final outing as Madea outperformed expectations with the fourth best opening in the now nine-film franchise. Focus's Greta settled outside the top five in its debut weekend, while Universal's Best Picture winner, Green Book, saw a strong bump following its Oscar night win.

    With an estimated $30 million, Universal's How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World dipped -45% in its second weekend, pushing the film's domestic cume to $97.6 million after ten days in release. The film dipped a little more than we expected heading into the weekend, but still managed to hold on better than the second film in the franchise over its sophomore frame as it is still outpacing its predecessors at the same point in the release cycle, though it's looking less and less likely it can maintain that momentum.

    Internationally, Hidden World added $52 million this weekend, the bulk of which came from its debut in China where it racked up an estimated $33.4 million. The film's international cume now stands at $277.7 million for a worldwide cume that now tops $375 million. The film still has eight markets left to release, the last of which being Japan on August 23.

    In second place is Tyler Perry's ninth film in the Madea film franchise and the multi-hyphenate is reportedly making this his final Madea feature. If that holds true and Lionsgate can't talk him into a tenth pic, the titular character is going out with a bang, delivering an estimated $27 million debut, the fourth largest in the franchise. The film also received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening weekend audiences and if past performances from Madea titles means anything, look for the film to finish right around $60 million if not a bit higher. The film's opening weekend audience was 67% female and 78% of the crowd was age 25 and over, lining up with previous releases.

    Fox's Alita: Battle Angel finished with an estimated $7 million in third place, pushing the film's domestic cume over $72 million as it begins its third week in release. The film also added another $40.4 million internationally this weekend from 81 markets for an overseas cume that now totals $278.2 million, giving the $170 million production a global tally that now tops $350 million.

    WB's The LEGO Movie 2 took fourth place with an estimated $6.6 million as its domestic cume now stands at $91.6 million. The film also added another $6.1 million internationally this weekend for an international cume that now over $61 million and a worldwide tally that stands at $152.8 million.

    Rounding out the top five is last weekend's winner of Oscar's Best Picture, Universal's Green Book, which saw a +121% jump and brought in an estimated $4.7 million, pushing the film's domestic cume over $75 million. Additionally, Lionsgate and Amblin's release of the film overseas delivered $31.9 million from 63 markets this weekend, for an international cume that now totals $112.1 million and a worldwide total over $188 million.

    Outside the top five, in something of a log jam from spots five thru eight, is where we find Focus Features's release of Greta, which debuted with an estimated $4.58 million. The performance is within Mojo's expectations, but with 2,411 locations in play that's only $1,902 per location. The film received a "C-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences and played to a crowd that was 55% female with 29% of the overall audience coming in aged 35 and older. The film also opened in Australia and New Zealand this weekend, bringing in an estimated $400,000.

    In limited release, Neon's documentary Apollo 11 led the way, debuting exclusively on 120 IMAX screens with an estimated $1.65 million for a per screen average of $13,750. The film will expand everywhere next weekend.

    Additional limited releases include Well Go's Furie, which brought in $145,400 from 14 locations ($10,386 PTA); A24's Climax brought in $121,655 from five screens for a chart-topping $24,331 per theater average; Music Box's Transit delivered $35,368 from two theaters; Vertical's Giant Little Ones opened in one location with an estimated $13,500; IFC's The Wedding Guest debuted in four theaters with $20,156 ($5,039 PTA); Ammo's Chokehold brought in $3,900 from three theaters ($1,300 PTA); Oscilloscope's re-release of The Hours and Times opened with an estimated $2,250 from one theaters; and Blue Fox's Saint Judy debuted with $41,234 from 55 theaters ($750 PTA).

    Lastly, Disney's Ralph Breaks the Internet finally topped $200 million domestically this weekend after having already outperformed the first film, which reached $189.4 million domestically back in 2012. Internationally, the Ralph sequel is now just shy of $320 million for a global cume totaling $520 million. The first film finished with over $471 million globally.

    All that being said, 2019 continues to dig itself a hole, currently pacing -26% behind 2018 and is actually pacing behind each of the last five years at the domestic box office. As a result, next weekend's release of Marvel's Captain Marvel will be watched closely as it is set to debut in 4,100+ locations with tracking as of last week targeting as much as $140 million for the three-day. Will it be the start of a major turnaround?

    'Captain Marvel' Delivers a Massive $153M Domestic Opening and $455M Worldwide



    Disney's release of Marvel Studios's Captain Marvel gave the domestic box office a much needed jolt after the first two months of the year struggled to compete with 2018. The twenty-first entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe delivered the franchise's seventh largest opening weekend of all time while grossing more over its first three days than the combined totals of any previous three-day weekend so far this year.

    With an estimated $153 million, Captain Marvel proved a massive success, bringing in the third highest March opening of all-time, and don't be surprised to see actuals push the film's total a bit higher come Monday afternoon. Historically, the performance ranks among openings that include The Dark Knight ($158.4m opening), The Hunger Games: Catching Fire ($158m opening), Rogue One ($155m opening) and The Hunger Games ($152.5m opening), the four of which representing a total domestic gross ranging from $408-530+ million.

    GET MORE: Take a look at Captain Marvel's opening compared to similar debuts!

    On average, the 20 previous releases in the MCU delivered a 2.76x multiplier, which would suggest Captain Marvel's run would finish around $422 million based on the film's domestic opening weekend. That said, should it manage to top Iron Man 3's $409 million domestic run it would rank as the fifth largest film in the MCU and, in terms of genre competition, it has a few weeks all to itself before WB's Shazam! opens on April 5.

    It is interesting to note exits, which show the film playing to an opening weekend crowd that was 55% male and 45% female, which, along with Black Panther and Ant-Man and the Wasp, is the smallest gender divide among films in the MCU, but nowhere near the 52% female crowd Wonder Woman played to back in June 2017. Additionally, 64% of the film's opening weekend crowd was aged 25 or older, which ranks as one of the older audiences for an MCU film, while it earned an "A" CinemaScore.

    Internationally, Captain Marvel delivered an estimated $302 million, making it the fifth highest international opening weekend of all-time and the sixth largest worldwide debut ever. Leading the way was the film's opening in China, which is estimated at $89.3 million, which ranks as the third largest MCU opening weekend ever in the market behind Avengers: Infinity War and Captain America: Civil War. Behind China is South Korea with a $24.1 million debut followed by the UK ($16.8m), Brazil ($13.4m), Mexico ($12.8m), Australia ($10.7m), Indonesia ($10.1m), Russia ($9.8m), France ($9.2m), Germany ($7.8m), India ($6.9m), Thailand ($6.6m), Taiwan ($6.4m), Philippines ($6.3m), Malaysia ($5.6m), Italy ($5.5m) and Hong Kong ($5.2m). Next weekend the film will open in Japan serving as the only market where the film has yet to be released.

    Universal's How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World finished in the runner-up position with an estimated $14.7 million for a domestic cume just shy of $120 million as it enters its third week in release. The film also added another $21.7 million internationally this weekend, for an overseas cume that now totals $315.5 million for a global tally topping $435 million.

    Tyler Perry's A Madea Family Funeral dipped -55% in its second weekend, delivering an estimated $12.05 million, pushing the film's domestic cume just shy of $46 million.

    WB's The LEGO Movie 2 entered its fifth week in release with an estimated $3.8 million as it continues to inch toward $100 million domestically. The film also added another $3.9 million internationally this weekend for an international cume that is now $67.3 million, and a worldwide gross totaling $164.4 million.

    Rounding out the top five is Fox's Alita: Battle Angel, which dipped -56% for an estimated $3.2 million three-day and a domestic cume that now totals just over $78 million. The film also added $11.6 million from 74 overseas markets, lifting the international cume over $300 million for a worldwide tally that now stands at $382.6 million.

    Elsewhere, Neon's Apollo 11, which expanded into 405 theaters after playing in 120 IMAX exclusive locations last weekend, rounded out the top ten with an estimated $1.3 million for a $3,212 per theater average.

    In limited release, Reliance's Badla brought in an estimated $614,328 from 94 locations ($6,535 PTA); Lionsgate's The Kid delivered an estimated $513,000 from 268 locations ($1,912 PTA); A24's Gloria Bell debuted with an estimated $154,775 on 5 screens in NY and LA, for a per screen average of $30,955; Kino Lorber's re-release of Babylon brought in an estimated $20,096 from one theater; and Greenwich's Ferrante Fever opened with an estimated $4,000 from one location.

    Overall, this is the first weekend in 2019 that saw the overall weekend gross manage to outperform the same weekend in 2018, doing so by a strong +48% based on estimates. The year, however, is still pacing -27% behind 2018's record pace, but with so many major releases still in the pipeline 2019 should start closing that gap sooner than later.

    Next weekend Paramount's animated feature Wonder Park will open in ~3,500 locations; Lionsgate's Five Feet Apart will debut in 2,600 theaters; and Focus will go nationwide with Captive State in ~2,200 theaters.

    You can check out all of this weekend's estimated results right here and we'll be updating our charts with weekend actuals on Monday afternoon.

    'Captain Marvel' Tops $760 Million Worldwide as Newcomers Overperform




    For a second weekend in a row Disney and Marvel's Captain Marvel topped the weekend box office as it has now posted over $760 million worldwide in just twelve days in global release. Overall, the weekend ended up topping the same weekend last year for a second straight week as both Wonder Park and Five Feet Apart outperformed expectations with their opening weekend performance. At the same time Lionsgate's release of Pantelion's No Manches Frida 2 delivered a top ten finish from just 472 theaters, topping Focus's disappointing release of Captive State, which struggled in its debut in over 2,500 locations.

    Disney's Captain Marvel topped the weekend box office for a second weekend in a row, delivering an estimated $69.3 million sophomore frame, dipping -54.8% and outperforming the -56% average second weekend dip for a film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This pushes the film's domestic cume over $266 million after just ten days in domestic release.

    Internationally, Captain Marvel opened in its final international market this weekend, finishing #1 with an estimated $5.6 million in Japan. China remains the top grossing international market with an estimated $132 million followed by South Korea ($36.5m), the UK ($30.9m), Brazil ($24.3m) and Mexico ($22.4m). Overall, the film brought in $119.7 million from 54 markets this weekend for an overseas cume that now totals $494 million for a global cume that is now over $760 million. That number already surpasses ten previous releases in the MCU globally and will soon top Guardians of the Galaxy ($773.3m globally) to become the tenth highest grossing worldwide release in the MCU.

    In the runner-up position, Paramount's Wonder Park managed to outperform the top end of expectations, delivering an estimated $16 million debut from 3,838 locations. Opening day audiences gave the film a "B+" CinemaScore while the opening crowd was 59% female and 62% families.

    Internationally, Wonder Park opened in 19 markets with an estimated $4.3 million. Leading the way was Brazil with a $1.7 million debut followed by Indonesia ($276K), Turkey ($266K) and the United Arab Emirates ($235K). The film opens in Russia next week followed by an April 3 debut in France with openings in Australia, Germany, Mexico, Spain and the UK set for the following week.

    In third place, Lionsgate's release of CBS Films's Five Feet Apart also managed to outperform expectations and topped opening weekend comps including Love, Simon and Everything, Everything, delivering an estimated $13.1 million opening weekend from 3,727 theaters and with it a solid "A" CinemaScore suggesting good things for the weeks to come. The film's opening weekend audience was 82% female with 65% of the opening weekend crowd coming in under the age of 25. 45% of that audience was under the age of 18 and gave the film an "A+" CinemaScore.

    Universal's release of DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World landed in fourth, dipping -36% as it entered its fourth week in release with an estimated $9.3 million three-day, pushing its domestic box office over $135 million. The film also added another $9.4 million internationally this weekend, pushing its overseas total to $330.9 million for a global tally that stands at $466.5 million.

    Rounding out the top five is Tyler Perry's A Madea Family Funeral, which dipped -36% as it enters its third week in release, delivering an estimated $8 million for a domestic cume that now stands at $59 million.

    Lionsgate's third film in the top ten lands just outside the top five with the release of Pantelion's No Manches Frida 2 debuting in 472 theaters and delivering an impressive $3.89 million. The performance is a notch ahead of the original film's $3.6 million three-day debut over Labor Day weekend back in 2016 and audiences appear to have liked what they saw, giving the sequel an "A" CinemaScore.

    Next we come to Focus's release of Captive State, which was unable to capture audience attention, delivering just $3.1 million from 2,548 locations for only a $1,242 per theater average. Audiences that saw the film weren't exactly taken with it either, giving it a "C-" CinemaScore. The film played to an opening weekend crowd that was 55% male with 66% of the crowd coming in under the age of 35.

    In limited release, Focus's The Mustang brought in an estimated $76,000 from four theaters ($18,950 PTA); ArtAffects's Faith, Hope & Love opened with $60,855 from 18 theaters ($3,381 PTA); Fox Searchlight's release of The Aftermath brought in an estimated $57,500 from five theaters ($11,500 PTA); Cohen Media Group debuted Ash is the Purest White in seven theaters with an estimated $45,150 for a $6,450 per theater average; The Orchard's The Hummingbird Project opened in four theaters with an estimated $36,027 ($9,007 PTA); and Oscilloscope's Combat Obscura brought in an estimated $15,500 from 10 locations ($1,550 PTA).

    Next weekend will see the release of Jordan Peele's Us opening in over 3,600 theaters. The thriller serves as the director's follow-up to the monster 2017 hit Get Out and it has already generated a slew of great reviews out of the SXSW Film Festival.

    Jordan Peele's 'Us' Delivers a Mind-Blowing $70 Million Debut



    Universal's release of Jordan Peele's Us dominated the domestic box office, not only out-performing the opening weekends for several recent horror hits, but delivering the second largest opening ever for a live-action, original picture, topping the weekend box office with over $70 million. As a result, the 2019 box office continues to improve over the month of March after struggling to begin the year. Overall, this weekend was the third straight to outperform the same weekend last year.

    At #1, with an estimated $70.25 million (~49.6% of all tickets sold among the top 12 films), Us topped the weekend box office with the third largest opening of all-time for an R-rated horror film, blowing away 2018's The Nun ($53.8m opening) and placing behind Universal's own Halloween, which opened with $76.2 million last October. The film also decimated the opening for Peele's previous film Get Out, which was a massive hit back in 2017 following a $33.3 million debut. Get Out would go on to gross over $176 million domestically, ranking as the third largest horror film of all-time domestically.

    One mind-blowing stat is to note that while animated features such as Inside Out ($90.4m), Zootopia ($75m), The Incredibles ($70.46m) and Finding Nemo ($70.25m) opened higher, the $70.25 million debut for Us is the largest opening for a live-action, original film since Avatar's $77 million debut back in 2009. On a list dominated by sequels it's not often original content is seen to climb quite so high.

    Additionally, Us delivered the largest opening for an original, R-rated film, topping Universal's Ted ($54.4m) not to mention the largest opening for an original horror film, topping A Quiet Place ($50.2m). The performance comes with a "B" CinemaScore, which is a notch below the "A-" for Get Out, but is still a solid audience grade for a horror film. The overall opening weekend audience was split 50/50 among males and females and 53% of the overall audience was aged 25 or older.

    Looking ahead at its domestic prospects, it's not easy to determine just how high Us will climb. While Get Out pushed over $176 million, Halloween finished its run with $159.3 million, though the latter was certainly a product of nostalgia and seasonal relevance. That said, one would expect Us to play closer to Get Out and push over $200 million, but how far over? On average, films that open anywhere from $65-75 million deliver a 3.36x multiplier, which would suggest a domestic performance around $236+ million, which seems like as good a bet as any right now.

    Internationally, Us debuted in 47 markets and brought in an estimated $16.7 million led by a $3.67 million opening in the UK to go along with a $1.98 million France debut, $1.36 million in Germany and $1.17 million launch in Spain. Next weekend's key markets include openings in Korea, Russia and Australia followed by openings in Italy (Apr 4), Mexico (May 3) and finally Japan on August 23.

    Disney's release of Marvel's Captain Marvel fell to second place as it begins its third weekend in release, dipping -48.5% and delivering an estimated $35 million for a domestic cume that now tops $321 million. The performance makes it the tenth largest domestic release in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and places it just outside the top twenty among all superhero films.

    Internationally, Captain Marvel delivered an estimated $52.1 million from 54 markets, pushing the film's international cume to $588.8 million for a global tally topping $910 million. The film now ranks as the seventh largest global release in the MCU and will soon become the seventh film in the franchise to top $1 billion worldwide.

    In third, is Paramount's Wonder Park, which dipped -43% in its sophomore frame, delivering an estimated $9 million for a domestic cume that is now just shy of $30 million. The film also added $5 million internationally this weekend for an overseas cume that now totals $10.2 million.

    Lionsgate's release of CBS Films's Five Feet Apart dropped -34% in its second weekend, pulling in an estimated $8.75 million for a domestic cume that stands at $26.5 million. The film also expanded its international footprint this weekend, now playing in 37 markets from which it brought in an estimated $6.2 million for an overall international cume that stands at $6.3 million. This weekend saw the film deliver a #1 finish in Italy with an estimated $1.7 million along with a $1.4 million opening in Brazil and $1.1 million debut in Mexico. Next weekend the film will open in Australia followed by debuts in South Korea (Apr 11) and Russia (May 1).

    Rounding out the top five is Universal and DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, dipping just -30% for a $6.5 million weekend and a domestic cume that now tops $145 million as it enters its fifth week in release. Internationally the film added another $6 million from 62 markets still in play, pushing its worldwide cume over $488 million. The film still ranks as the third largest release in the franchise worldwide, but will soon top the original's $494.9 million globally, though the first sequel's $621.5 million global tally appears well out of reach.

    Outside the top five, A24's Gloria Bell had a strong expansion this weekend, delivering an estimated $1.8 million from 654 theaters (+615) for a $2.5 million domestic cume as the Julianne Moore starrer enters its third weekend in release.

    In limited release this weekend Bleecker's Hotel Mumbai brought in an estimated $86,492 from four theaters ($21,623 PTA); IFC's Out of Blue opened in 35 locations with a disappointing $17,682 ($505 PTA); and Sony Classics releases Sunset in three theaters with an estimated $15,006 ($5,002 PTA).

    Outside of the overall weekend performances, WB's upcoming release of Shazam! held a special preview event in conjunction with Fandango.com, from which it delivered an estimated $3.3 million. The figure tops the recent performance from How to Train Your Dragon 3, which brought in $2.6 million from Fandango screenings in advance of release and even Aquaman's $2.9 million from Amazon Prime screenings. Shazam! hits theaters in two weeks and to go along with this weekend's screenings, the first reviews dropped this morning and it currently holds a promising 94% rating on RottenTomatoes.

    Next weekend will be quite interesting as Us will look to hold on similarly to Get Out, which dipped just -15% in its second weekend, but audiences will have a lot to choose from including the release of Disney's Dumbo, which is tracking well and looking to open in over 4,000 locations along with Neon's The Beach Bum in over 750 theaters and Pure Flix's Unplanned, which will launch in approximately 1,000 locations.

    You can check out all of this weekend's estimated results right here and we'll be updating our charts with weekend actuals on Monday afternoon.

    Disney's 'Dumbo' Flies to #1 While 'Captain Marvel' Nears $1 Billion Worldwide



    Disney's Dumbo was unable to reach studio or industry expectations, but still managed a #1 finish, making for the third different #1 film at the domestic weekend box office in as many weeks. Meanwhile holdovers such as Us and Captain Marvel continued their strong performances and Pure Flix's release of the anti-abortion drama Unplanned managed to out-perform expectations and find itself a spot in the top five.

    With an estimated $45 million, Disney's Dumbo topped the weekend box office though fell short of the studio's $50+ million expectations and well short of what some thought would be a $60+ million debut. While the performance is well ahead of select, recent Disney releases such as Christopher Robin ($24.6m opening), Alice Through the Looking Glass ($26.9m opening) and Pete's Dragon ($21.5m opening), it's well short of films such as Cinderella ($67.9 million opening), which online ticket retailer Fandango.com reported Dumbo was outpacing in advance ticket sales.

    Looking ahead, Dumbo did receive an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, which were 53% female and 54% were 25 years of age or older. That said, looking at Disney's other live action reimaginings, the average multiplier is 3.2x, which would suggest Dumbo is on its way to a domestic performance around $145 million. Given the reported $170 million budget, that puts a lot of heavy lifting on the international market.

    Internationally, Dumbo debuted day-and-date in all markets globally with an estimated $71 million, which includes #1 openings in not only the US, but also in France, Italy, Spain, Russia, UK, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico along with being the #1 western release in China and Japan. Leading the way was a $10.7 million opening in China followed by the UK ($7.4m), Mexico ($7.2m), Russia ($4.4m), Italy ($3.8m), France ($3.6m), Spain ($3.6m), Brazil ($2.5m), Japan ($2.4m) and Australia ($2.1m).

    Universal's Us dipped -53% in its second weekend, which is below Mojo's aggressive forecast, but pretty much right on par with what should be expected for a genre film of this sort. The film's $33.6 million three-day pushed the domestic gross over $128 million in just ten days. While the film continues to pace well ahead of select, comp titles, next weekend should prove interesting as it will face some serious genre competition with the release of Paramount's Pet Sematary.

    Internationally, Us added 14 additional markets and brought in an estimated $22.6 million from 60 total markets for an overseas cume that now totals $46.3 million for a worldwide tally just shy of $175 million. Among new territories, Korea led the way with a $6.9 million opening followed by Australia ($2.7m) and Russia ($1.4m). Next weekend Us will open in Italy followed by debuts in Mexico (May 3) and Japan (Aug 23).

    Disney's Captain Marvel lands in third, dipping -40% as it begins its fourth weekend in release with an estimated $20.5 million three-day. This pushes the film's domestic gross over $353 million as it currently ranks as the eighth largest domestic release in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

    Internationally, Captain Marvel added another $26.4 million from 54 markets, pushing the overseas total to $636.8 million and the global tally over $990 million. The film will soon top $1 billion at the global box office, becoming the seventh film in the MCU to reach that mark and the 38th film all-time.

    Pulling into fourth is Lionsgate's release of the CBS drama Five Feet Apart, which delivered an estimated $6.25 million, dipping just -27% as it kicks off its third week in release with a domestic gross that now tops $35 million. Internationally, the film added another $6.2 million from 39 markets for an international cume that now totals $14.8 million and a global cume topping $50 million.

    Rounding out the top five is Pure Flix's Unplanned. The anti-abortion drama debuted in 1,059 theaters and managed a $6.1 million ($5,745 PTA) opening weekend performance, aided by pre-release theater buyouts and previews totaling $1.5 million. The film received an "A+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, which were 58% female and 70% aged 25 years or older. The performance marks the second largest debut for Pure Flix behind the $7.6 million debut for God's Not Dead 2 and they did so tapping into online advertising as the likes of Lifetime, Hallmark, HGTV and others refused to show the ads for the film.

    Outside the top five, Bleecker's Hotel Mumbai had a solid expansion into 924 theaters (+920) bringing in an estimated $3.16 million for a $3,423 per theater average.

    Neon's The Beach Bum from director Harmony Korine rounded out the top ten as it was unable to deliver on even the lower end of expectations, bringing in just $1.8 million from 1,100 theaters.

    In limited release, IFC's Diane opened in three theaters with an estimated $27,043 ($9,014 PTA); Comedy Dynamics opened Slut in a Good Way in seven locations with an estimated $22,000 ($3,143 PTA); Magnolia's Steve Bannon documentary The Brink opened in four locations with an estimated $18,370 ($4,593 PTA); PBS's The Chaperone delivered $12,150 from two theaters ($6,075 PTA); and Greenwich's Screwball opened in 13 locations with an estimated $12,020 ($925 PTA).

    Next weekend features a couple of higher profile releases including WB's release of New Line's Shazam! in over 4,100 locations alongside the latest Stephen King adaptation, Paramount's release of Pet Sematary, which is expected to debut in over 3,400 theaters. Additionally, STX will open The Best of Enemies with Sam Rockwell and Taraji P. Henson in over 1,600 theaters.

    'Shazam!' #1 for Second Weekend as 'Little' Tops 'Hellboy' to Lead Newcomers



    After four straight weekends featuring a new #1 film at the weekend box office, Warner Bros.'s Shazam! took the crown for a second weekend in a row, topping a flurry of newcomers that delivered varying returns. Universal's Little secured the runner-up position, out-performing Lionsgate and Summit's Hellboy, which struggled amidst a flurry of negative reviews ahead of release not to mention reports of tension during production. Additionally, United Artists's release of Laika's Missing Link missed expectations and Aviron's After out-performed pre-weekend expectations.

    At the top of the box office is Shazam!, which delivered an estimated $25.1 million in its second weekend, a drop of -53%, for a domestic cume just shy of $95 million. The film also topped the global box office for a second weekend in a row as it added $35.9 million internationally for an overseas cume that now stands at $163.9 million and a global tally reaching $258.8 million.

    Universal's Little led all newcomers, delivering an estimated $15.5 million in its debut, for a second place finish. The $20 million production received a "B+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences and, over the weekend, played to a crowd that was 65% female and 56% were aged 25 or older. Additionally, the film played to a crowd that was 43% African American.

    Internationally, Little debuted in 11 markets with an estimated $1.9 million led by a $751k debut in the UK. Upcoming key market releases include a June 14 debut in Spain followed by France (Jun 19), Italy (Jul 4) and Russia (Aug 8).

    Lionsgate's release of Summit's Hellboy struggled in its debut, delivering a mere $12 million, well below the studio's anticipated $17-20 million opening. The film faced plenty of negativity heading into its weekend from mostly negative reviews to reports of tension during production. Opening weekend audiences were 56% male and 64% aged 25 or older and of that crowd, opening day moviegoers gave the pic a disappointing "C" CinemaScore.

    In fourth is Paramount's Pet Sematary, which dipped -59% in its sophomore frame, which was to be expected, finishing with an estimated $10 million three-day, pushing the film's domestic gross over $41 million after ten days in release. Internationally, the film added $12.6 million this weekend, pushing its overseas cume to $35.7 million for global tally that now stands at $76.8 million.

    Rounding out the top five is Disney's Dumbo, which dipped -49.6% as it entered its third week in release, finishing with an estimated $9.18 million and a domestic cume just shy of $90 million. The film also added another $22 million internationally this weekend for an overseas cume that now totals $177 million and a global tally that stands at $267 million.

    Elsewhere, Aviron's After topped pre-weekend expectations, delivering an estimated $6 million from 2,138 locations. The film received a "B" CinemaScore from opening day audiences while playing to a crowd that was 76% female and 73% of the overall opening weekend crowd was under the age of 25 as young females powered the film's debut.

    Finishing in ninth is United Artists's release of Laika's Missing Link, which was expected to deliver anywhere from $9-12 million this weekend, but could only muster $5.8 million from 3,413 locations, and a disappointing $1,712 per theater average. As noted in our pre-weekend forecast, the pic was pacing behind recent Laika releases as well as last March's Sherlock Gnomes, suggesting awareness and interest in the film was light heading into the weekend. In the end, Laika's brand wasn't enough to propel the film's opening alone, resulting in the worst wide opening for the animation house to date.

    In limited release, Ledafilms's Mia and the White Lion opened with a disappointing $238,903 from 312 locations ($766 PTA); IFC's Mary Magdalene opened in 62 theaters with an estimated $62,436 ($1,007 PTA); Bleecker's Teen Spirit brought in $44,361 from four theaters ($11,090 PTA); Gunpowder & Sky's Her Smell delivered an estimated $39,058 from three theaters for a chart-topping $13,019 per theater average; Greenwich's Wild Nights with Emily brought in an estimated $33,000 from three locations ($11,000 PTA); and Kino Lorber's release of Bi Gan's 3-D feature Long Day's Journey Into Night brought in $27,896 from three locations ($9,298 PTA).

    Next week sees a pair of films opening on Wednesday, including Fox's Breakthrough and Disney's latest Disneynature documentary, Penguins. Then, on Friday, Warner Bros. will release The Curse of La Llorona in over 3,400 locations as we inch closer to the release of Avengers: Endgame at the end of the month.

    You can check out all of this weekend's estimated results right here and we'll be updating our charts with weekend actuals on Monday afternoon.
    Hellboy didn't do so well, kind of saw that coming.

    'Avengers: Endgame' Decimates Record Books with $1.2 Billion Global Debut



    Heading into the weekend it was a foregone conclusion that Avengers: Endgame would deliver the largest opening weekend of all-time, both domestically and globally, but to deliver a three-day domestic gross totaling an estimated $350 million and a global weekend over $1 billion was almost inconceivable. Today that figure has become a reality as Endgame not only delivered an estimated $350 million over the course of its first three days in domestic release, but a massive $1.2 billion at the global box office in just its first five days in release.

    Endgame's estimated $350 million debut will almost surely improve once actuals are revealed on Monday afternoon, but for now the film's opening is nearly $93 million larger than the previous record set by Avengers: Infinity War ($257.69 million) just last year and a whopping 90% of the overall weekend market share. After critics were overwhelmingly in support of the film heading into the weekend, the film's opening weekend crowd gave it an "A+" CinemaScore, the third such grade in the Marvel Cinematic Universe alongside The Avengers and Black Panther. The audience was 57% male and 61% was 25 years of age or older.

    Looking ahead, forecasting just where exactly Endgame will end up is near impossible, but if we were to compare to Infinity War's domestic debut, that film went on to gross nearly $680 million at the domestic box office. Should Endgame deliver a similar multiplier we're talking about a domestic performance topping $920 million, which would put it just shy of the current record domestic gross of $936.6 million set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens back in 2015. Whether Endgame is able to reach that mark will be a story for another day, but it seems safe to assume it will, at the very least, become the second largest domestic release of all-time considering the lowest multiplier for a film in the MCU is Captain America: Civil War's 2.27x, which would give Endgame a nearly $800 million domestic run.

    Largest Thursday Previews: $60 million
    Previous Record: $57 million (Star Wars: The Force Awakens)
    Widest Opening: 4,662 theaters
    Previous Record: 4,529 theaters (Despicable Me 3)
    Largest Friday, Opening Day and Single Day: $156.7 million

    Largest Sunday: $84.3 million
    Previous Record: $69.2 million (Avengers: Infinity War)
    Domestic Opening Weekend: $350 million
    Previous Record: $257.69 million (Avengers: Infinity War)
    #1 Movie Market Share: 90%
    Previous Record: 84.5% (Avengers: Age of Ultron)

    Previous Record: $257.69 million (Avengers: Infinity War)
    Biggest Weekend Overall (Top 12 Gross): $389 million
    Previous Record: $305.55 million (Dec. 18–20, 2015)

    Previous Record: 6 Days (Star Wars: The Force Awakens)
    International Opening Weekend: $859 million
    Previous Record: $443.15 million (The Fate of the Furious)
    Worldwide Opening Weekend: $1.2 billion
    Previous Record: $640.5 million (Avengers: Infinity War)
    Global 4DX Format Opening Record: ~$15 million / 635 screens
    Previous Record: ~$7.5 million / 540 screens (Jurassic World)
    Global 3D Opening Record: ~$540 million
    Previous Record: ~$366 million (Avengers: Infinity War)
    Global IMAX Opening Record: $91.5 million
    Previous Record: $47.6 million (Star War: The Force Awakens)

    As already mentioned, it wasn't only domestic records that fell this weekend. Endgame's $859 million international opening is over $400 million more than the previous record set by The Fate of the Furious and the $1.2 billion in global ticket sales is nearly double the previous record of $640.5 million set by Avengers: Infinity War just last year. The film is the fastest film to ever top $1 billion globally, doing so after just five days, and it already ranks as the 18th largest worldwide release ever and the sixth largest worldwide release in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

    Speaking of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the franchise's 22 films have now grossed over $19.8 billion worldwide, of which nine have topped $1 billion at the global box office.

    Within that record setting global debut, Endgame delivered the #1 opening day ($107.8m) in China as well as the largest five-day opening weekend in the market ($330.5m) and already ranks as the #4 non-local film ever in the market. In addition to that, the film delivered the largest industry openings in 44 markets, including Australia ($30.8m), Korea ($47.4m), Brazil ($26m), Mexico ($33.1m), France ($24.2m, non-local), Italy ($19m, non-local), Spain ($13.3m) and the UK ($53.8m).

    Here's a look at the film's top 16 markets internationally:

    China ($330.5m)
    UK ($53.8m)
    Korea ($47.4m)
    Mexico ($33.1m)
    Australia ($30.8m)
    Germany ($26.9m)
    India ($26.7m)
    Brazil ($26.0m)
    France ($24.2m)
    Italy ($19.0m)
    Philippines ($17.9m)
    Thailand ($14.3m)
    Indonesia ($14.1m)
    Spain ($13.3m)
    Japan ($13.0m)
    Hong Kong ($12.5m)
    Taiwan ($12.3m)
    The film will release in Russia on Monday, April 29, serving as the final international market where the film has yet to be released.

    Amazingly enough, Disney and Marvel didn't stop with Endgame this weekend as Captain Marvel entered its eighth week in release and dipped just -10% for an estimated $8 million three-day and a runner-up finish at the weekend box office. The film has now grossed over $413 million at the domestic box office, topping Wonder Woman to become the ninth largest superhero release all-time domestically. Internationally, Captain Marvel added over $2 million for a global weekend topping $10 million and a global cume that now stands at $1.11 billion, making it the #24 overall global release of all-time.

    Warner Bros. and New Line's The Curse of La Llorona dipped -72% in its sophomore session for an estimated $7.5 million three-day and a domestic cume that now stands at $41.28 million after ten days in release. Internationally, the film brought in nearly $8 million this weekend for an overseas cume that now stands at $45.7 million for a global cume totaling $87 million.

    Disney's release of Fox's Breakthrough landed in third place, dipping -44% in its second weekend in release. The film delivered an estimated $6.3 million over the three-day for a domestic cume that now totals $26.1 million.

    Rounding out the top five is WB's Shazam! with an estimated $5.5 million (-66%) and a domestic cume that now totals over $131 million as it enters its fourth week in release. Internationally, the film added an estimated $5.4 million from 80 markets in release for an overseas total that now tops $215 million and a global tally that stands at $346.4 million.

    Next weekend will see four films go into wide release, hoping to find some room to exist alongside Endgame's sophomore frame. STX will debut their first original animated feature in Uglydolls, debuting in over 3,600 theaters; Lionsgate and Summit will release the comedy Long Shot into ~3,100 locations; Screen Gems will open the thriller The Intruder; and Briarcliff will go wide with El Chicano.

    You can check out all of this weekend's estimated results right here and we'll be updating our charts with weekend actuals on Monday afternoon.

    'Avengers: Endgame' Tops $2 Billion Globally, En Route to Dominant Second Weekend



    In just twelve days of global release Avengers: Endgame is already the second largest worldwide release of all-time, topping $2 billion globally and delivering over $619 million at the domestic box office. Lost in its wake, the weekend's three new wide releases were led by the Screen Gems thriller The Intruder while Lionsgate's Long Shot and STX's animated feature UglyDolls finished the weekend on the lower end of expectations.

    With an estimated $145.8 million, Avengers: Endgame came up just a bit shy of the record $149.2 million second weekend for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but this may be an example of Disney being just a bit cautious. Tomorrow may reveal the film was able to top the record mark set by Force Awakens once weekend actuals are released, but even without that record Endgame has now grossed nearly $620 million at the domestic box office, already ranking as the ninth largest domestic release of all-time after just ten days in theaters. Just how high it will climb remains difficult to nail down, but a domestic gross topping $900 million seems like an extreme possibility.

    Internationally, Endgame added over $282 million for an overseas cume that now stands at $1.569 billion and a global total reaching $2.188 billion, making it the second largest global release of all-time, trailing Avatar by $600 million. As for that total, Endgame topped $2 billion worldwide in its eleventh day of release, a total Avatar reached after 47 days.

    Endgame's top international market remains China where the film has now grossed over $575 million followed by the UK ($89.9m), Korea ($82.1m), Mexico ($61.6m), Brazil ($56.3m), India ($51.8m), Germany ($47.4m), Australia ($46.2m), France ($43.1m), Japan ($34.4m), Indonesia ($30.9m), Italy ($29.0m), Philippines ($28.7m), Spain ($24.9m), Hong Kong ($23.1m), Taiwan ($22.5m) and Thailand ($22.5m). Not included in those numbers is the film's $32.6 million seven day opening in Russia where it began playing on Monday and has already become the sixth largest release in the market of all-time.

    In the runner-up position we find Sony's release of the Screen Gems thriller The Intruder, which delivered an estimated $11 million from 2,222 locations. The film received a "B-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences while playing to a weekend crowd that was 53% female and 68% of the overall audience was aged 25 or older. The film outperformed the studio's $9 million expectations and came in a bit higher than Mojo's pre-release forecast.

    Lionsgate's release of Long Shot came in on the lower end of expectations, delivering an estimated $10 million debut and a third place finish. The film was the best reviewed title among new releases, but audiences wither weren't all that interested, or Endgame was too much of a juggernaut or perhaps there was just too much of a crossover among the weekend's new offerings, all of which skewed female with Long Shot playing to a crowd that was 56% female while 68% of the opening weekend audience was aged 35 or older. The film received a so-so "B" CinemaScore and will hope to receive some solid word of mouth as it heads into its second weekend, though the competition looking ahead doesn't get much easier.

    Internationally, Long Shot opened in 22 markets with an estimated $3.3 million with the UK leading the way with an estimated $1 million, ranking #2 in the market. Looking ahead, the film will open in France, Belgium and Spain in two weeks followed by releases in Finland (Jun 7), Netherlands (Jun 13), Brazil (Jun 20), Germany (Jun 20), Russia (Jun 27) and South Korea (Jul 17).

    Struggling in its debut, STX's UglyDolls took in an estimated $8.5 million from 3,652 theaters for a soft, $2,330 per theater average. The animated feature received a "B+" CinemaScore from the opening day crowd while the full weekend played to an audience that was 64% female. The film's performance is just behind the $8.9 million debut for My Little Pony back in October 2017 and that film went on to gross $21.8 million domestically and just over $60 million globally. The difference between the two films, however, is UglyDolls carries a production budget of a reported $45 million (though Deadline.com is reporting a budget closer to $53 million), which, while small, is considerable when compared to the just $6.5 million for My Little Pony.

    Heading into release, UglyDolls had over 100 promotional partners, including McDonald's, Walmart, Hasbro, Carl's Jr./Hardee's and Outright Games and STX has already struck a deal with Hulu to follow up the film's release with 26-episode franchise series launches on the streaming service next year. Perhaps that will be a better outlet for the brand rather than theaters.

    Rounding out the top five is Disney and Marvel's Captain Marvel with an estimated $4.2 million as the film has now pushed over $420 million domestically. The film also added another $1.2 million internationally as its global cume climbs to $1.12 billion.

    Just outside the top ten is Briarcliff's release of El Chicano, which debuted in 605 theaters with an estimated $700,432 and a sluggish, $1,158 per theater average.

    In limited release Well Go's Shadow opened in four theaters with an estimated $30,100 ($7,525 PTA); IFC's Non-Fiction debuted in two theaters with an estimated $29,056; and Sumbadhat's Mother of a Day opened in one theater with an estimated $2,672.

    Next weekend will see Endgame face its first test at the top of the box office as Warner Bros. releases Detective Pikachu into over 4,100 locations and it could wrestle away the weekend's top spot from the Marvel release. Also hitting theaters next week will be UAR's The Hustle into 2,750 locations; STX will launch Poms into over 2,700 theaters; and Disney will debut Fox Searchlight's Tolkien into 1,300 theaters on Friday, but prior to that Searchlight has partnered with Fathom for a special, one-night event on Tuesday, May 7.

    You can check out all of this weekend's estimated results right here and we'll be updating our charts with weekend actuals on Monday afternoon.

    '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.

    In limited release, Fox International's Student of the Year 2 brought in an estimated $438,000 from 190 locations ($2,305 PTA); Neon's Biggest Little Farm debuted with $101,012 from five theaters for a chart-topping $20,202 per theater average; Sony Classics opened All is True in four theaters with an estimated $46,809 ($11,702 PTA); IFC's Charlie Says brought in an estimated $39,114 from 39 locations ($1,003 PTA); and Cohen Media's My Son opened with $4,484 from three theaters ($1,495 PTA).

    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.

    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.

    In limited release, Greenwich's Echo in the Canyon debuted in two theaters with $103,716 for a chart-topping $51,858 per theater average; Fox International's India's Most Wanted delivered $100,000 from 110 locations ($909 PTA); Bleecker's The Tomorrow Man debuted with $19,327 from four theaters ($4,832 PTA); Oscilloscope's The Proposal delivered $12,100 from one location; Ciesla's The Spy Behind Home Plate opened in one theater with $10,250; and PBS's Woodstock: Three Days that Defined a Generation opened in two locations with $8,150.

    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.
    These numbers are 3 day totals.

    '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.
    Some pretty solid numbers. Godzilla was supposed to do more, but wasn't too far off.
