Daily Box Office Report
Thursday, May 4, 2017




By Daniel Garris

Disney’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was off to an estimated $17.0 M start on Thursday night from preview screenings that began at 7 PM. The preview gross for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was the 18th largest ever for a Friday release (tied with 2014’s The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1). In comparison to previous Marvel Cinematic Universe films, the preview gross for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was 51.8 percent ahead of the $11.2 M preview gross for 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy and 32 percent behind the $25.0 M preview gross of last year’s Captain America: Civil War. As is normally the case, the Thursday night performance of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be counted towards the film’s opening day gross for Friday.

Meanwhile, Universal’s The Fate of the Furious grossed $962 K on Thursday. That represented a 17.7 percent decline from Wednesday and a 50.4 percent decline from last Thursday, as The Fate of the Furious (and most other films) took a clear hit on Thursday from the launch of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The Fate of the Furious was the week’s top film with a weekly take of $25.276 M. That represented a 47.8 percent decline from last week and brings the film’s three-week total to $198.608 M.

Lionsgate and Pantelion’s How to Be a Latin Lover rounded out its first week of release with $547 K. How to Be a Latin Lover fell 16.5 percent from Wednesday’s performance. How to Be a Latin Lover took second place for the week with a stronger than expected seven-day start of $15.403 M. The film is running 26.1 percent ahead of the $12.212 M seven-day take of 2013’s Instructions Not Included.

STX Entertainment and EuropaCorp’s The Circle finished up its first week with $475 K on Thursday. That represented a 13.1 percent slide from Wednesday. The Circle placed in fourth for the week with a softer than expected seven-day start of $11.695 M. The Circle is running a disappointing 41.0 percent behind the $19.808 M seven-day gross of last year’s Inferno.

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and Fox’s The Boss Baby claimed fourth and fifth place on Thursday with respective daily grosses of $468 K and $367 K. For the week, The Boss Baby was down 26.6 percent to take fifth with $11.145 M, while Beauty and the Beast was down 28.8 percent to claim sixth with $8.951 M. Respective total grosses stand at $482.652 M for Beauty and the Beast in seven weeks and at $150.561 M for The Boss Baby in five weeks.

Great India Films’ Baahubali 2: The Conclusion wrapped up its historic first week with a sixth place take of $310 K. Baahubali 2: The Conclusion was down a very sharp 41.5 percent from Wednesday, due in part to losing its IMAX screens to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Baahubali 2: The Conclusion placed in third for the week with a seven-day take of $13.083 M ($150 K of which is estimated from unreported private screenings).
