  1. 'Men in Black' & 'Shaft' Become Latest Summer Sequels to Disappoint
    It was another disappointing weekend for a pair of new sequels as both Sony's Men in Black International and WB's Shaft were both unable to reach even the slimmest of studio expectations heading into the weekend. The weekend is down significantly compared to last year when Incredibles 2 bowed with a record-shattering $182.6 million opening and next weekend will turn to Pixar once again, looking to Toy Story 4 to turn the tide. Sony's release of Men in Black International debuted with a...
  2. 'Men in Black' and 'Shaft' to Continue a Summer of Slumping Sequels
    SATURDAY AM UPDATE: Sony's Men in Black: International brought in an estimated $10.4 million on Friday and the studio is now projecting a soft, $26+ million opening for the $110 million production. The film received a "B" CinemaScore. Even worse news comes in for WB's Shaft, which brought in an estimated $2.7 million on Friday and is looking to settle outside the top five with a three-day gross around $7-8 million. The film received an "A" CinemaScore from opening da...
  3. 'Pets 2' and 'Dark Phoenix' Top Weekend Box Office, Though Both Underperform
    The weekend's top twelve combined to outperform the same weekend last year by more than 43%, which means the year-to-year gap continues to close, but the weekend's new releases both struggled mightily. Universal and Illumination's The Secret Life of Pets 2 was unable to even deliver half of the opening the first film delivered just a few years ago, while Fox's Dark Phoenix entered the weekend as the worst reviewed film in the X-Men franchise ever and, predictably, delivered the lowest openi...
  4. 'Secret Life of Pets 2' and 'Dark Phoenix' Both Struggle at the Box Office
    SATURDAY AM UPDATE: Universal and Illumination's The Secret Life of Pets 2 led the way on Friday with an estimated $16.5 million for a current domestic total of $17.4 million, which includes Thursday night's preview grosses as well as $925k from the May 25 Fandango event. At this time the film is looking at a weekend gross around $46.2 million, missing expectations. The film received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences. Disney's release of Fox's Dark Phoenix is also...
  5. '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 ...
  6. 'Godzilla' Looks to Become King of the Weekend Box Office
    SATURDAY AM UPDATE: WB's Godzilla: King of the Monsters brought in an estimated $19.6 million on Friday, which includes the $6.3 million from Thursday night previews. The question now is just how well it can hold on through the weekend. Kong: Skull Island brought in $20.1 million on Friday before a $61 million opening. However, it had a much smaller Thursday night preview performance, though it did match Godzilla's "B+" CinemaScore, which keeps the door open for a $50+ million per...
  7. 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 ...
  8. Disney's 'Aladdin' Set to Lead a Crop of Three New Releases Over Memorial Day Weekend
    SATURDAY AM UPDATE: Disney's Aladdin is off to a stellar start and looking at a $100+ million four-day debut after an estimated $31 million on Friday, including $7 million from Thursday night previews. The opening day performance is ~$4 million behind the opening day for Solo: A Star Wars Story last year, but the film is expected to play much better than Solo did over the four-day holiday and could deliver much more. After all, The Jungle Book brought in $32 million on its opening day back ...

    SATURDAY AM UPDATE: Lionsgate's John Wick 3 is exploding out of the gates, delivering an estimated $22.67 million on Friday and currently projected to deliver a $55-58 million debut. The film received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, the same as John Wick 2. Universal's A Dog's Journey brought in an estimated $2.5 million and is looking at a debut around $8.5 million for the weekend while WB's The Sun is Also a Star delivered an estimated $1 million on Friday an...
  10. '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 to...
