Weekend Box Office Top Ten - 5/12/19

Weekend Box Office Top Ten:

AVENGERS: ENDGAME is #1 again for the third weekend in a row with $63M (Million), a domestic total of $723.4M, and $2.485 Billion globally, soon to become both the #2 film of all-time worldwide (which it has already achieved) and domestically (as early as next weekend), with the only question now being whether it will top James Cameron's film as the #1 global box office champ of all-time.

POKEMON DETECTIVE PIKACHU opened at #2 with a strong $58M domestic debut, and a worldwide debut of $170.4M, an impressive start for this family title which should demonstrate good holds in the weeks ahead. Produced for around $150M plus marketing, this will be a nice hit for Legendary and WB.

THE HUSTLE opened at #3 with a decent $13.5M domestic and $27.2M worldwide, in-line with previous films starring Rebel Wilson.

THE INTRUDER held at #4 with $6.6M, and a total of $20.9M. Produced for only $8M plus marketing, this will be profitable for Screen Gems.

LONG SHOT is #5 with $6.1M, a domestic total of $19.7M and an early $22.9M worldwide with most of international yet to open. Produced for around $50M plus marketing, this will be a financial loss for all involved.

POMS opened at #6 with a poor $5.1M start, continuing STX's troubles at the box office.

UGLYDOLLS fell to #7 with $3.9M, and a total of only $14.2M for STX, as this $45M production looks to be a notable financial disappointment, especially in relation to the studio's franchise aspirations with the brand.

BREAKTHROUGH is #8 with $2.4M, a domestic total of $37M, and $45.8M worldwide. Produced for $14M plus marketing, this is nicely profitable for Fox.

TOLKIEN opened at #9 with only $2.1M, a terrible start for this Fox Searchlight biopic of the famed author.

CAPTAIN MARVEL is #10 with $1.8M, a domestic total of $423.7M, and $1.123 Billion worldwide, as another highly impressive franchise starter for Marvel.

Next weekend sees debuts for JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3, A DOG'S JOURNEY, and THE SUN IS ALSO A STAR, all looking to connect with their respective audiences as the busy month of May marches on.
