Daily Box Office Report
Thursday, July 6, 2017




By Daniel Garris

Sony’s Spider-Man: Homecoming was off to a spectacular start on Thursday with an estimated $15.40 M from preview shows that began at 7 PM. That represented the 25th largest preview gross ever for a Friday opener. The preview gross for Spider-Man: Homecoming was 77.0 percent stronger than the $8.70 M preview gross for 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, 40.0 percent ahead of the recent $11.00 M preview gross of this year’s Wonder Woman and just 9.4 percent behind the $17.00 M preview gross of this year’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Spider-Man: Homecoming already looks to be benefiting from strong critical reviews and strong early word of mouth. The film currently has a healthy score of 8.728 on our LoveHate Rate aggregate measurement of critical and online ratings, which is the sixth highest rating for any qualifying 2017 release thus far. As is normally the case, the preview gross for Spider-Man: Homecoming will be counted towards Friday’s opening day gross.

Universal’s Despicable Me 3 led the daily box office for one last day on Thursday with $8.180 M. Despicable Me 3 (and family films in general) held up well on Thursday, as the film increased 2.4 percent over Wednesday’s performance. Despicable Me 3 was easily the week’s top film with a seven-day start of $115.191 M. While Despicable Me 3 is performing below it lofty pre-release expectations, at the same time the film is having a very solid performance with its relativity modest production budget for a computer animated film in mind. After initial front-loading over the weekend, Despicable Me 3 has also shown signs of stabilizing as the week has gone on.

Sony’s Baby Driver grossed $2.404 M to remain in second place. Baby Driver slowed 11.8 percent from Wednesday, but was still just down 27.6 percent from last Thursday. That is a good sign for the film as it heads into its second weekend. Baby Driver placed in second for the week with a weekly haul of $35.104 M. The nine-day total for the modestly budgeted Baby Driver stands at a stronger than expected $44.133 M, which is nearly on par with the $44.792 M nine-day start of 2013's This Is the End.

Warner’s Wonder Woman took third place with $1.976 M. Wonder Woman continued to impress on Thursday, as the film declined only 4.6 percent from Wednesday and 26.3 percent from last Thursday, in the face of new direct competition from Spider-Man: Homecoming. Wonder Woman took third place for the week with $28.122 M. That was down a slim 24.7 percent from the previous frame and brings the film’s five-week total to a massive $358.651 M.

Transformers: The Last Knight placed in fourth with $1.541 M. Transformers: The Last Knight was clearly affected by the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming on Thursday night, as it was down 19.6 percent from Wednesday and down 48.7 percent from last Thursday. Transformers: The Last Knight landed in fourth for the week with $27.513 M. The film was down 55 percent from the previous week and has grossed an underwhelming $112.617 M in 16 days.

Disney’s Cars 3 rounded out the day’s unchanged top five with $1.420 M. Cars 3 increased 7.0 percent over Wednesday and decreased a respectable 43.7 percent from last Thursday. Cars 3 took fifth place this week with $16.907 M. That was a 53.7 percent decline from the previous frame and brings the film’s three-week total to $128.097 M.
