Toy Story 4 Dominates Box Office with $118 Million Debut

The Disney/Pixar flick, Toy Story 4, easily took the top spot at the box office this weekend, with $118 million. Although, it came in a bit under expectations, it is the highest debut of the franchise, besting Toy Story 3's $110.3 million debut in 2010 (wow, it has already been 9 years?). Overseas, it took in another $120 million and has a worldwide total of $238 million.

The other toy movie to debut this weekend, Child's Play, took in $14.1 million for a second place finish. Meanwhile, Men in Black International takes a 64% dip to 4th place with $10.8 million in its second weekend.  Like Dark Phoenix, this franchise film will have a hard time getting to the $100 million mark domestically.

Another Disney film, however, is still holding strong; Aladdin has so far made $810.1 million worldwide and has a good chance to surpass the $1 billion mark.

Men in Black International Tops Box Office with $28.5 Million Debut

In what's becoming a lackluster June for films, Men in Black International topped the box office with $28.5 million.  It is the lowest debut of the franchise.  Overseas, the brand stills holds some weight, as it made $73.7 million.  However, it's not looking good for the reboot/sequel.

The Secret Life of Pets 2, slipped to second with $23.8 million, bringing its total to $92 million. Which is less than half the amount the original film made at this point in time.

Aladdin is pacing along quite splendidly for Disney, as this weekend's third place finish ($16.7 million) has upped its domestic total to $236.5 million.  It has also made $461.4 million overseas for a worldwide total of $724.9 million.

Not so great for Disney... Dark Phoenix... ouch... It dropped over 70% ($9 million) for a fourth place finish.  It has so far made $51.8 million and it'll most likely be the first ever X-Men related film to not pass the $100 million mark.

Secret Life of Pets 2 Leads Weekend with $47.1 Million Debut

The top two newcomers to the box office easily underperformed this weekend: The Secret Life of Pets 2 ($47.1 million) and Dark Phoenix ($33 million). More on the second film later.

The Secret Life of Pets 2 $47.1 million take is substantially less than the $104.4 million opening the first film made a few years ago and will probably get no where near the $368.4 million domestic total of the original film.

Now onto the other clunker, Dark Phoenix. Oh X-Men, you reignited a new wave of the comic book era, but ended with a fizzle. Disney, must be thrilled to have this present from Fox.  At $33 million, it is the lowest opening for any X-Men related film... easily under achieving The Wolverine's $53.1 million from 6 years ago.  This doesn't bode well for the New Mutants film that's still in waiting to come out (?).  The plus side, is that Dark Phoenix opened to a strong $107 overseas for a worldwide total of $140 million.  That should help recoup some of its budget.

In other news, Avengers: Endgame inches up to $2.730 billion. Not sure if it'll surpass Avatar's $2.788 billion take, unless there is a magical last minute push.

Secret Life of Pets 2 vs Dark Phoenix vs Godzilla vs Aladdin

A couple new movies hit theaters this June weekend.

The Secret Life of Pets 2
Hit Factor: The first film made almost $900 million worldwide.
Flop Factor: It's for a very certain audience under a certain age.



Dark Phoenix
Hit Factor: X-Men
Flop Factor: With series burnout and now poor reviews (21% Tomatometer... Yes, that is currently below X-Men Origins: Wolverine) Disney probably should have shelved its theatrical release when they bought Fox. On track to be the lowest grossing X-Men film.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters is King of the Box Office with $49 million Debut

The monster pic, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, took the top spot this weekend ($49 million)... though, a little bit under analyst expectations. This is probably due to the downtrending critic reviews (currently 39% Tomatometer).  It also ranks third (out of three) in Warner Bros' supposed monster universe which includes Godzilla 2014 ($93 million) and Kong: Skull Island ($61 million). Despite its underwhelming domestic take, King of the Monsters made a hefty $130 million overseas for a total of $179 million worldwide.

Last weeks number one, Aladdin, settled for second place with $42.3 million, bringing its total to $185 million and its worldwide total to $445.9 million.

The Elton John biopic, Rocketman, came in 3rd with $25 million, and the thriller, Ma, came in 4th with $18.3 million.

In other news, Avengers: Endgame climbs a little bit ($7.8 million) to $815.5 million. And now has a grossed $2.713 billion worldwide.  It seems more and more likely that it'll stay in second place in both the domestic and worldwide box office totals for a while.

Aladdin Flies to First with $86.1 million Debut

Another wish came true for Disney, as Aladdin easily took the top spot this Memorial Day weekend ($86.1 million) and looks to make $110+ million over the entire Holiday weekend.  Aladdin took in another $121 million overseas for an early worldwide total of $207.1 million.

John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum, dropped to second with $24.4 million.  It has surpassed the $100 million mark domestically, which makes it the first of the franchise to do so.  It's worldwide total stands at $175.4 million.

As for Avengers: Endgame, it added another $16.8 million, will probably hit the $800 million domestic mark today or tomorrow, making it one of two movies (the other being Star Wars: The Force Awakens) to surpass that number. As for worldwide, not all the numbers are in for this weekend, with some outlets saying it has passed $2.7 billion, but the current take is $2.68 billion.  Whatever the case, it still has some ways to go to pass Avatar's $2.788 billion.

John Wick 3 Takes Out Avengers: Endgame with $57 million Box Office Debut

Well, it looks like 3 weekends at the top of the box office was enough for Avengers: Endgame ($29.4 million), as John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum easily took the top spot ($57 million).  This marks the highest opening of the John Wick series.

Now, back to Avengers: Endgame.  It's $29.4 million propelled it pass Avatar ($760.5 million) on the all time domestic list, and just sit's a long way from the numero uno spot claimed by Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($936.7 million).  Despite a miracle, it will have a hard time beating The Force Awakens.  Internationally, Endgame has made $1.844 billion and $2.615 billion worldwide. The king of the box office, Avatar, sits at $2.788 billion. Hrmm...  this is gonna be a close one as Endgame is gonna need one big final push to get pass Avatar.

Avengers: Endgame Dusts Titanic with $2.2 billion Total Worldwide

Avengers: Endgame easily dominated the box office in it's second weekend with $145.8 million... upping it's domestic total to $619.7 million.  However, despite a large second weekend, it is just short of the record $149.2 million from Star Wars: The Force Awakens' second weekend take (it opened during Christmas).  So, this will get interesting, as we'll see if it can surpass The Force Awakens' total domestic hall of $936.7 million.

Endgame took in $282.2 million overseas this weekend, which helped it's worldwide total rise to $2.189 billion.  Yes, that's over $2 billion in it's second weekend in release.  This surpasses Titanic's worldwide total of $2.188 billion to become the 2nd highest grossing film of all time.  Next up, king of the box office, Avatar, who stands at $2.788 billion.  This is going to be a close one... for both domestic and worldwide records, as the box office will start to get a little bit crowded with the likes of Pokémon: Detective Pikachu, John Wick: Parabellum, Aladdin, and Godzilla: King of the Monsters being released in the next few weeks.

In other words, Disney (since the purchase of 20th Century Fox) now owns the 5 biggest box office movies of all time: Avatar ($2.788 billion), Avengers: Endgame ($2.189 billion), Titanic (co-financed with Paramount)($2.188 billion), Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.053 billion), Avengers: Infinity War ($2.048 billion). They also have 8 out of the top 10.

Avengers: Endgame Obliterates Box Office Records with $350 Million Debut, $1.2 Billion Worldwide

So what I thought was a high guesstimate of $300 million, proved to be well below what Avengers: Endgame actually pulled off; a record breaking $350 million.  It is the biggest opening weekend of all time domestically.  Biggest Friday ($156.7 million), Saturday ($109 million) and most likely Sunday where final tally is yet to be determined.

It was record shattering news overseas, as well, where it grossed $859 million, with $330.5 million coming from China. It broke records in almost every market it debuted in. Currently standing at $1.2 billion, it is the fastest movie to surpass the $ billion mark... and all bets are on as to whether this will eclipse king of the box office, Avatar, who's worldwide stands $2.78 billion.

Hellboy vs Missing Link vs Little vs After vs Shazam!

A bunch of new movies hit theaters this April weekend.

Flop Factor: Shazam! just came out last weekend, Avengers: Endgame coming out soon.



Missing Link
Hit Factor: Positive early reviews (88% Tomatometer).
Flop Factor: Somewhat crowded box office.



Little
Hit Factor: From the producers of Girls Trip and Night School.
Flop Factor: Seems like the least marketed of those to movies mentioned above.


After
