Weekend Box Office Top Ten - 6/24/18
Weekend Box Office Top Ten
by Lawrence Lasky
JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM opened at #1 with a big $150M (Million) on the high end of tracking, and a global total already at $711M. Overseas alone is expected to finish around the $800M range, and the film will easily pass the $1 Billion mark, a big victory for Universal and this rejuvenated dinosaur franchise, with the final installment of this trilogy already announced.
INCREDIBLES 2 held on at #2 with $80.9M, a huge domestic total of $350.3M and climbing, and an early $485M worldwide, with most major territories yet to debut. No doubt this film will also handily join the $1 Billion club at the global box office before its run is over, and claim the biggest Pixar total ever domestically.
OCEAN'S 8 slid to #3 with $11.6M, a domestic total now of $100.3M, and $170.9M worldwide, with a lot of play left internationally. At a budget of $70M plus marketing costs, this film is well on its way towards profitability for WB.
TAG is #4 with $8.2M, and a total of $30M so far, with international yet to roll out. Produced for $28M by WB, this should find its way to being profitable thanks to decent holds and what should be an okay overseas performance.
DEADPOOL 2 is #5 with $5.2M, a domestic haul now of $304.1M, and an impressive $707M worldwide, with more to come, as this film looks to finish not that far off from the first one. Produced for $110M plus marketing, this is a big hit for Fox and Marvel, with X-Force on the way.
SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY is #6 with $4M, a domestic total now of $202M, and only $353M worldwide. Produced for $200M plus marketing costs, this is the first Star Wars film which will lose money in the history of the franchise.
HEREDITARY held onto #7 with $3.8M, and a total now of $35M, as this sleeper horror hit continues to play in the crowded summer frame, and global now stands at $48.2M on this success from A24.
SUPERFLY slipped to #8 with $3.3M, and a total now of $15.2M. Produced for $16M plus modest marketing costs, the jury is still out on profitability, which will depend largely on how well the film does internationally where it has yet to debut.
AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR is #9 with $2.4M, a domestic haul of $669.4M, and worldwide now stands at $2.030 Billion. Disney and Marvel will do it all over again next summer with the conclusion of this storyline.
WON'T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR? is #10 with $1.8M, and a total of $4.1M.
Next weekend sees the releases of SICARIO: DAY OF THE SOLDADO, and UNCLE DREW, both hoping to connect with their audiences as this finishes as the biggest June on record, and July looks to be very busy at the box office, beginning with Marvel's ANT-MAN AND THE WASP.
