Daily Box Office Report
Wednesday, July 4, 2018




By Daniel Garris

Universal’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom led the daily box office on Independence Day with $11.501 million. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has now led the daily box office for thirteen consecutive days. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was down 3.3 percent from Tuesday and down a slim 6.3 percent from last Wednesday. Thanks to the Independence Day holiday, yesterday’s daily percentage holds in general were much stronger than usual for a Wednesday. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has grossed a strong $297.672 million in thirteen days and is set to zoom past the $300 million domestic mark today. BoxOfficeReport is predicting that Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will take in $27.5 million during its third weekend.

Disney’s Incredibles 2 held steady in second place with $9.646 million. That represented a 6.2 percent decrease from Tuesday and a slim 5.7 percent decline from last Wednesday. The 20-day total for Incredibles 2 stands at an incredible $468.190 million. That leaves Incredibles 2 just $18.106 million away from passing 2016’s Finding Dory to become both the highest grossing Pixar film of all-time and the highest grossing animated film of all-time. BoxOfficeReport is predicting a fourth weekend gross of $26.0 million for Incredibles 2.

Universal’s The First Purge was off to a very nice start on Wednesday with a third place take of $9.306 million. Wednesday’s opening day performance included an estimated $2.5 million from Tuesday night shows that began at 7PM. The opening day take of The First Purge was 35.9 percent below the $14.513 million opening day gross of 2016’s The Purge: Election Year, though it should be noted that The Purge: Election Year had an added advantage in the comparison thanks to opening on a Friday instead of a Wednesday. With yesterday’s performance in mind, The First Purge currently appears headed for a five-day start somewhere in the area of $30 million to $40 million.

Sony’s Sicario: Day of the Soldado and Lionsgate’s Uncle Drew claimed fourth and fifth place with respective daily grosses of $2.578 million and $2.178 million. Sicario: Day of the Soldado decreased an extremely slim 0.2 percent from Tuesday, while Uncle Drew declined just 12.7 percent. Respective six-day starts stand at a healthy $26.321 million for Sicario: Day of the Soldado and at a very solid $21.729 million for Uncle Drew. BoxOfficeReport is predicting second weekend grosses of $8.0 million for Sicario: Day of the Soldado and $7.7 million for Uncle Drew.

Warner’s Ocean’s 8 placed in sixth with $2.093 million. Ocean’s 8 experienced one of the day’s stronger daily holds, as the film was up 14.5 percent over Tuesday and up a terrific 36.5 percent over last Wednesday. Ocean’s 8 has grossed a very healthy $120.300 million in 27 days. BoxOfficeReport is predicting that Ocean’s 8 will gross $5.9 million in its fifth weekend.

Focus’ Won’t You Be My Neighbor? continued to shine in limited release on Wednesday with $769,090 from 654 locations. That gave Won’t You Be My Neighbor? a daily per-location average of $1,176 and ranked the film in eighth place among all films yesterday. Won’t You Be My Neighbor? was up a terrific 47.5 percent over Tuesday and has grossed an impressive $9.313 million in 27 days. This weekend Won’t You Be My Neighbor? will be adding another 237 locations for an overall location count of 891.
