Weekend Box Office Top Ten - 9/29/19

Weekend Box Office Top Ten:

ABOMINABLE opened at #1 with a decent $20.8M (Million) domestic, and a very early $31M worldwide. Produced for $75M plus marketing, this Dreamworks Animation and Universal title should reach profitability, as the family film is expected to have a strong multiple and perform well overseas, in particular across China when it is released in that territory, though the Dreamworks brand is strong across the board internationally.

DOWNTON ABBEY is #2 with $14.5M, a domestic total now of $58.5M, and a worldwide total of $107.1M, an impressive result for this Focus Features/Universal release, and with all expectations being that this successful leap from the small screen to theatrical will see a sequel produced.

HUSTLERS held on at #3 with $11.4M, a domestic total of $80.6M, and an early worldwide total of $95.4M. Produced for $20M plus marketing, this STX title is already profitable for the studio, with the only question now being whether it can hold on enough to cross the $100M mark domestic, or fall just shy of that total. Either way, it has climbed up as the third biggest release from STX, and a needed win.

IT: CHAPTER 2 is #4 with $10.4M, a domestic total of $193.9M, and a global haul of $417.4M for WB. With a production cost said to be around $80M plus marketing, this has been a nicely profitable hit for the studio.

AD ASTRA is #5 $10.1M, a domestic total of $35.5M, and a worldwide total of $89M. Produced for $100M plus marketing, this is expected to be another financial loss for Fox, continuing their troubles at the box office since the acquisition of the studio by Disney.

RAMBO: LAST BLOOD is #6 with $8.5M, a domestic total of $33.1M, and a very early worldwide total of $46.7M. Produced for $50M plus marketing, it is unlikely that this Lionsgate release will even reach breakeven, and currently looks to be a financial loss for all involved.

JUDY opened at #7 with $3M playing in just 461 theaters, a solid result.

GOOD BOYS is #8 with $2M, a domestic total of $80.3M, and a worldwide total of $104M. Produced for $20M plus marketing, this has been a nicely profitable win for Universal and original comedies.

THE LION KING is #9 with $1.6M, a domestic total of $540M, and a stunning global haul of $1.638 Billion for Disney, as the film winds down its impressive run at the box office.

ANGEL HAS FALLEN is #10 with $1.5M, a domestic total of $67.1M, and a worldwide total of $123.9M so far, making this $40M release a profitable success for Lionsgate, and likely to see a fourth film in the popular franchise.

Next weekend sees the launch of WB's JOKER as the only new wide release from a studio, looking at a domestic debut which could become the top October opening of all-time.
