Weekend Box Office Report
May 12 - May 14, 2017




By Daniel Garris

Weekend Actuals Update:

Disneyís Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 increased from yesterdayís estimate thanks to a stronger than expected performance on Motherís Day. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 took in $65.263 M this weekend, which brings the filmís 10-day total to a strong $248.421 M. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 registered the 14th largest unadjusted second weekend gross of all-time.

Foxís Snatched and Warnerís King Arthur: The Legend of the Sword also increased from their respective studio estimates. Snatched won the battle for second place this weekend with a debut of $19.542 M, while King Arthur: The Legend of the Sword had to settle for third with a disappointing $15.371 M start.

Other weekend actuals for the frame include: The Fate of the Furious ($5.401 M), Beauty and the Beast ($4.809 M), The Boss Baby
($4.497 M), How to Be a Latin Lover ($3.859 M) and Lowriders ($2.404 M).

Weekend Estimates Update:

Disneyís Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 easily remained in first place over Motherís Day weekend with an estimated second weekend take of $63.01 M. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 declined 57.0 percent from its opening weekend performance. In comparison, 2014ís Guardians of the Galaxy decreased 55.3 percent in its second weekend to gross $42.12 M, while 2013ís Iron Man 3 fell 58.4 percent in its second weekend to take in $72.53 M. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has grossed an impressive $246.16 M in ten days, which already makes the film the second highest grossing release of 2017 to date domestically (behind only fellow Disney release Beauty and the Beast). Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is running 39.5 percent ahead of the $176.52 M ten-day take of Guardians of the Galaxy and 13.6 percent behind the $284.95 M ten-day haul of Iron Man 3. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 registered the 16th largest unadjusted second weekend gross of all-time.

Internationally, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 grossed an estimated $52.2 M from 56 territories. That brings the filmís international total to $384.4 M and global haul to $630.6 M. Total grosses to date in key markets include $80.5 M in China, $42.5 M in the United Kingdom, $23.1 M in Russia, $23.0 M in Germany, $20.1 M in Australia and $20.1 M in France.

Foxís Snatched debuted with an estimated $17.50 M and in doing so won the battle for second place this weekend against Warnerís far more expensive King Arthur: Legend of the Sword by an estimated $2.80 M. Snatched performed in line with expectations, which had tended to range from $15 M to $21 M heading into the weekend. However, Snatched did start out 41.9 percent softer than the $30.10 M launch of Amy Schumerís last film, 2015ís Trainwreck. Snatched was able to debut 25.5 percent ahead of the $13.94 M Motherís Day weekend launch of 2015ís Hot Pursuit.

Snatched took in $5.00 M on Friday (which included an estimated $650 K from Thursday night shows that began at 7 PM), increased 29.0 percent on Saturday to claim $6.45 M and is estimated to decline a slim 6.2 percent on Motherís Day to gross $6.05 M. Snatched hasnít gone over well with critics and online movie fans, as the film currently has a LoveHate Rate of just 3.620 (though it should be noted that the filmís online ratings appear to have been artificially deflated by people who havenít actually seen the film). Snatched appears to be going over much better with audiences, as it received a respectable B rating on CinemaScore.

Warnerís King Arthur: The Legend of the Sword debuted disappointingly in third place with an estimated $14.70 M. King Arthur: The Legend of the Sword opened below already modest expectations that tended to range from $17 M to $25 M and performed very poorly with its $175 million production budget in mind. The film opened 59.2 percent below the $36.06 M start of 2010ís Robin Hood and instead performed much more along the lines of director Guy Ritchieís last film, 2015ís The Man from U.N.C.L.E., which started out with $13.42 M.

King Arthur: The Legend of the Sword started out with $5.30 M on Friday (which included an estimated $1.15 M from Thursday night shows that began at 7 PM), increased 4.1 percent on Saturday to take in $5.52 M and is estimated to fall 29.6 percent on Sunday to gross $3.89 M. Critical reviews and online reaction to King Arthur: Legend of the Sword has been lackluster, as the film has a current LoveHate Rate of 5.652. However, similar to Snatched, King Arthur: The Legend of the Sword appears to be going over better with audiences as well, as the film received a solid B+ rating on CinemaScore.

Universalís The Fate of the Furious placed in fourth with an estimated $5.30 M. The Fate of the Furious was down a solid 38.2 percent from last weekend. The film has grossed $215.04 M in 31 days, which ranks as the fourth highest domestic total to date among 2017 releases. The Fate of the Furious is running 5.9 percent behind the $228.62 M 31-day take of 2013ís Fast & Furious 6.

Foxís The Boss Baby claimed fifth this weekend with an estimated $4.60 M, while Disneyís Beauty and the Beast took sixth with an estimated $3.86 M. Both blockbusters were helped out by Motherís Day weekend, as The Boss Baby was down only 23.0 percent from last weekend, while Beauty and the Beast declined by just 24.1 percent. Respective total grosses stand at a strong $162.38 M for The Boss Baby in 45 days and at a massive $493.19 M in 59 days for Beauty and the Beast.

In other box office news, BH Tiltís Lowriders was off to a noteworthy eighth place start with an estimated $2.41 M. Lowriders launched in just 295 locations this weekend, which gave the film a very healthy per-location average of $8,180. Lowriders opened 41.8 percent ahead of the recent $1.70 M debut of BH Tiltís Sleight. Critical and online reaction to Lowriders has been stronger than that of both King Arthur and Snatched, as the film has a current LoveHate Rate of 6.558.
