Daily Box Office Report
Tuesday, December 26, 2017




By Daniel Garris

Star Wars: The Last Jedi took in $27.72 M on Boxing Day to lead the daily box office for a twelfth straight day. In the process, Star Wars: The Last Jedi surpassed the $400 M domestic mark yesterday. Star Wars: The Last Jedi was the third fastest film ever to reach the $400 M domestic milestone, behind only 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens (8 days) and 2015’s Jurassic World (10 days). Star Wars: The Last Jedi increased 1.0 percent over Monday’s Christmas Day performance and a healthy 36.9 percent over last Tuesday. Yesterday’s gross was the fifth largest Tuesday gross of all-time.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi has grossed $423.36 M through twelve days, which already ranks the film as the 17th highest grossing film all-time domestically. Star Wars: The Last Jedi is running 24.3 percent ahead of the $340.63 M twelve-day haul of last year’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and 29.6 percent behind the massive $600.95 M twelve-day take of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In addition to passing the $400 M domestic mark on Tuesday, Star Wars: The Last Jedi also passed the $400 M international mark and the $800 M global mark on Tuesday. Star Wars: The Last Jedi grossed an estimated $24.2 M internationally on Tuesday, which brings the film’s international total to $420.2 M and global total to $843.6 M.

Sony’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle continued to impress on Tuesday with an estimated second place take of $17.10 M. That represented a 10.0 percent decline from Monday’s strong Christmas Day performance and the 18th largest Tuesday gross of all-time. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has grossed $89.10 M after seven days of release. That places Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle a healthy 12.7 percent ahead of the $79.06 M seven-day start of 2006’s Night at the Museum (which opened on a Friday) and only 4.3 percent behind the $93.06 M seven-day launch of last year’s Sing. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle looks set to hold up extremely well going forward, especially given the film’s initial back-loading over its first week of release.

Universal’s Pitch Perfect 3 held steady in third place with $7.45 M. Pitch Perfect 3 was up an encouraging 14.6 percent over Monday. The five-day start for Pitch Perfect 3 stands at $33.87 M, which is towards the lower end of the film’s scaled back expectations. Pitch Perfect 3 is running 88.7 percent ahead of the $17.95 M grossed by 2012’s Pitch Perfect in its first five days of wide release and a lackluster 57.5 percent behind the $79.71 M five-day start of 2015’s Pitch Perfect 2. However, Pitch Perfect 3 will continue to gain ground in both comparisons over the coming days thanks to the ongoing holiday season.

Fox’s The Greatest Showman grossed $5.14 M to remain in fourth place. On the heels of the film’s impressive Christmas Day increase, The Greatest Showman declined 8.3 percent on Tuesday. The Greatest Showman has grossed $24.15 M through seven days of release. That is towards the lower end of expectations and places the film 32.2 percent behind the $35.63 M seven-day launch of Passengers at this time last year. Given the film’s strong early holding power and word of mouth, it appears likely that The Greatest Showman is in store for a lengthy box office run.

Fox’s Ferdinand and Disney’s Coco claimed fifth and sixth place with respective daily grosses of $4.00 M and $2.75 M. Ferdinand was up a very strong 42.8 percent over Monday and up 121.8 percent over last Tuesday, while Coco was down a slim 2.1 percent from Monday and up 61.2 percent over last Tuesday. Respective total grosses stand at an impressive $167.05 M in 35 days for Coco and at a modest, but encouraging $33.60 M in twelve days for Ferdinand.

Daily grosses on Tuesday for some of the films that opened or expanded this week included $1.93 M for Paramount’s Downsizing, an estimated $1.76 M for Sony’s All the Money in the World, $1.52 M for Focus’ Darkest Hour, an estimated $1.45 M for Warner’s Father Figures and $1.14 M for Fox Searchlight’s The Shape of Water. Respective total grosses to date stand at $10.13 M for The Shape of Water, at $9.89 M for Darkest Hour, $9.60 M for Downsizing, $6.93 M for Father Figures and at $4.36 M for All the Money in the World (in just two days).

On the platform front, STXfilms’ Molly’s Game grossed $668 K from 271 locations for a daily per-location average of $2,466 and Focus’ Phantom Thread took in $67 K from 4 locations in New York and Los Angeles for a per-location average of $16,683. Both films were down sharply from their opening day performances on Christmas, as Molly’s Game declined 35.9 percent and Phantom Thread decreased 47.6 percent. Respective two-day totals stand at $1.71 M for Molly’s Game and at $194 K for Phantom Thread. Molly’s Game will expand into wide release on January 5, while Phantom Thread will expand into nationwide release on January 19.
