Daily Box Office Report
Monday, December 18, 2017




By Daniel Garris

Star Wars: The Last Jedi took in $21.556 M on Monday. That was the tenth largest Monday gross of all-time and represented a 58.0 percent decline from Sunday’s performance. In comparison, last year’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story slowed 53.3 percent on its first Monday to gross $17.596 M, while 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens decreased just 33.8 percent on its first Monday to take in $40.110 M.

It should be noted that part of Monday’s sharper percentage decline for The Last Jedi is due to less schools being out for the holidays yesterday (an estimated 31 percent on December 18) than on the first Mondays for Rogue One (an estimated 48 percent on December 19) and especially The Force Awakens (an estimated 77 percent on December 21). At the same time, Monday’s percentage hold is also likely an early indicator that word of mouth for The Last Jedi isn’t on the same level that it was on for The Force Awakens.

The four-day domestic start for Star Wars: The Last Jedi stands at a terrific $241.566 M. The film is running an impressive 39.9 percent ahead of the $172.678 M four-day start of Rouge One: A Star Wars Story and 16.1 percent behind the $288.076 M four-day launch of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Star Wars: The Last Jedi registered the second largest four-day domestic start of all-time (behind only Star Wars: The Force Awakens and ahead of the $234.151 M four-day haul of 2015’s Jurassic World).

Internationally, Star Wars: The Last Jedi grossed an estimated $21.6 M on Monday from 54 international markets. That brings the film’s international total to $253.0 M and the film’s current global haul to $494.6 M. Star Wars: The Last Jedi is obviously set to zoom past the $500 M global mark today. International grosses for Star Wars: The Last Jedi through Monday include $41.7 M in the U.K., $25.4 M in Germany, $20.1 M in France, $17.8 M in Australia, $16.6 M in Japan, $9.0 M in Spain, $8.9 M in Russia and $8.2 M in Brazil.

Fox’s Ferdinand took second place on Monday with $1.207 M. Ferdinand was down 71.1 percent from Sunday’s performance, which indicates how heavily the film is skewing towards family audiences. Ferdinand is running below expectations with a four-day start of $14.608 M. That places Ferdinand 13.6 percent ahead of the $12.854 M four-day gross of 2006’s Charlotte’s Web and 15.3 percent behind the $17.238 M four-day take of 2015’s Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip. Ferdinand is highly likely to hold up very well throughout the rest of the holiday season.

Disney’s Coco followed closely behind in third place with $1.175 M. Coco decreased 65.9 percent from Sunday and increased a healthy 5.8 percent over last Monday. Coco has grossed an impressive $151.910 M through 27 days of release. In comparison to previous Thanksgiving openers from Disney, Coco is running 16.9 percent ahead of the $129.907 M 27-day total of 2010’s Tangled and just 8.1 percent behind the $165.272 M 27-day haul of last year’s Moana.

Lionsgate’s Wonder and Warner’s Justice League claimed fourth and fifth place with respective daily grosses of $865 K and $521 K. Wonder was down only 43.9 percent from Sunday and up a strong 19.8 percent over last Monday, while Justice League was down 61.9 percent from Sunday and 29.9 percent from last Monday. Respective 32-day totals stand at a softer than expected $220.117 M for Justice League and at a stronger than expected $109.948 M for Wonder.

On the platform front, Fox Searchlight’s The Shape of Water grossed $247 K from 158 locations for a daily per-location average of $1,565 and Focus’ Darkest Hour grossed $116 K from 84 locations for a similar per-location average of $1,385. Respective platform totals stand at $3.841 M for The Shape of Water in 18 days and at $2.455 M for Darkest Hour in 27 days. Both films will be expanding into nationwide release this coming weekend.
