Posted July 15, 2018 by Mitch Salem

  OPENINGS:  HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA 3: SUMMER VACATION (Sony Animation/Columbia/Sony) clocked in with a reliable $44.1M weekend, just about midway between the first Transylvania‘s $42.5M and the second’s $48.5M.  (Sticklers might note that this the first of the franchise to feature Thursday night screenings, giving it a slightly longer “weekend”.)  There are some other family movies […]

EARLY FRIDAY BOX OFFICE: “Hotel Transylvania 3″” Solid, “Skyscraper” Craters, “Ant-Man & The Wasp” Drops, “Sorry To Bother You” Widens, “Eighth Grade” Starts Big

Posted July 14, 2018 by Mitch Salem

  HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA 3: SUMMER VACATION (Sony Animation/Columbia/Sony) continues to be a solid mid-level franchise.  Preliminary numbers at Deadline have the opening day box office at $16.3M, the best of the trio, although it’s a bit misleading to compare that with the $11M Friday for the first Transylvania and the $13.3M for the second, since […]

Behind the US/Worldwide Weekend Box Office – 7.8.2018

Posted July 8, 2018 by Mitch Salem

  OPENINGS:  ANT-MAN & THE WASP (Marvel/Disney) turned out to be rather front-loaded, with a 30% Saturday drop (compared to 14% for the 2nd day of Ant-Man).  That pushed the studio weekend estimate down to $76M, which is still 33% better than Ant-Man‘s debut, but at the low end for Marvel, ahead of only the […]

EARLY FRIDAY BOX OFFICE: “Ant-Man & The Wasp” Large, “The First Purge” Soft, “Sicario 2″” Drops & More

Posted July 7, 2018 by Mitch Salem

  ANT-MAN & THE WASP (Marvel/Disney) will be Marvel’s lowest-grossing 2018 release, but it was designed to have relatively minor stakes, and while it’s not in a league with Black Panther or Avengers: Infinity War, on its own terms it’s performing impressively.  According to preliminary numbers at Deadline, opening day was $34M (including $11.5M from […]

Behind the US/Worldwide Weekend Box Office – 7.1.2018

Posted July 1, 2018 by Mitch Salem

  OPENINGS:  SICARIO: DAY OF THE SOLDADO (Black Label/Columbia/Sony) had a modest $19M start, which was better than the first Sicario‘s $12.1M (in October, after 2 weeks of limited release), but perhaps not by enough to justify the pricetag of opening in the crowded summer marketplace.  (Note that the risk here is Black Label’s, since […]
