Weekend Box Office Report
June 2 - June 4, 2017




By Daniel Garris

Weekend Actuals Update:

With actuals now in, Warner’s Wonder Woman exceeded yesterday’s studio estimate to open with a strong $103.251 M this weekend. Wonder Woman held up especially well on Sunday, as the film was down just 15.6 percent from Saturday’s performance.

Other weekend actuals for the frame include: Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie ($23.852 M), Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales ($22.087 M), Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($9.839 M), Baywatch ($8.741 M), Alien: Covenant ($4.123 M) and Everything, Everything ($3.301 M).

Weekend Estimates Update:

Warner’s Wonder Woman was off to a strong start this weekend with an estimated debut of $100.51M. Among the accomplishments of Wonder Woman this weekend was that the Patty Jenkins directed film registered the largest opening weekend gross ever for a female directed film (the previous record holder being 2015’s Fifty Shades of Grey with a debut of $85.17 M). Wonder Woman also set a new record for the largest debut ever over the weekend after Memorial Day; as it outpaced the $93.79 M start of previous record-holder Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban back in 2004. Wonder Woman registered the ninth largest unadjusted debut ever for Warner Bros., the sixth largest unadjusted debut ever for the month of June and the third largest debut of 2017 to date (behind only Beauty and the Beast and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2). The opening weekend performance of Wonder Woman was 5.8 percent stronger than the $95.02 M start of 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier and 13.8 percent below the $116.62 M debut of 2013’s Man of Steel.

Wonder Woman started out with $38.76 M on Friday (which included an estimated $11.0 M from Thursday evening screenings that began at 7 PM), decreased by just 7.6 percent on Saturday to take in $35.80 M and is estimated to decline 27.5 percent on Sunday to gross $25.95 M. Wonder Woman was aided this weekend by going over exceptionally well with critics. The film has a current 8.829 rating on our LoveHate Rate aggregate measurement, which represents the third highest score of 2017 to date among qualifying films (behind only Your Name. and Get Out). Wonder Woman also looks to be going over exceptionally well with audiences, as the film received an A rating on CinemaScore.

Wonder Woman displayed clear four-quadrant appeal this weekend, as the film’s audience skewed a bit towards female moviegoers (52 percent) and towards moviegoers under the age of 35 (53 percent). The film played especially strong with female moviegoers for a comic book adaptation. Wonder Woman is likely to hold up well throughout June, especially given its strong early word of mouth.

Fox and DreamWorks Animation’s Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie debuted in a distant second with an estimated $23.50 M this weekend. Captain Underpants opened in line with expectations, which had tended to range from $20 million to $30 million. While Captain Underpants didn’t reach the usual heights of a DreamWorks Animation film, it hadn’t been expected to, due in part to the film’s relatively modest cost for a computer animated film. Captain Underpants opened 10.3 percent ahead of the $21.31 M opening weekend take of 2013’s Turbo (which opened on a Wednesday) and 27.0 percent below the $32.21 M launch of 2014’s Mr. Peabody & Sherman. Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie represents the last DreamWorks Animation film to be distributed by Fox before Universal takes over distribution of future DreamWorks Animation films.

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie started out with $8.00 M on Friday (which included an estimated $650 K from Thursday evening screenings that began at 5 PM), increased 11.0 percent on Saturday to claim $8.80 M and is estimated to decrease 25.5 percent on Sunday to take in $6.62 M. Captain Underpants has gone over well with critics and online moviegoers and has a current LoveHate Rate of 7.695. The film received a solid B+ rating on CinemaScore. Captain Underpants will likely hold up well during the early stages of its run, before taking significant hits from both the release of Disney’s Cars 3 on June 16 and Universal’s Despicable Me 3 on June 30.

Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales was down two spots from last weekend to place in third with an estimated $21.61 M. Dead Men Tell No Tales fell a very sharp 65.7 percent from last weekend’s three-day frame, as the film’s lackluster critical reviews and the added presence of Wonder Woman in the marketplace both took a toll this weekend. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales has grossed $114.62 M in ten days, which is on the low end of expectations. The film is currently running a slim 2.0 percent behind the $117.00 M ten-day start of last year’s X-Men: Apocalypse and 25.3 percent behind the $153.42 M ten-day take of 2011’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

Fellow Disney release Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 followed in fourth place with an estimated $9.73 M. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was down a sizable 53.4 percent from last weekend, as it also took a noticeable hit from the debut of Wonder Woman this weekend. In the bigger picture, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues to impress with a 31-day take of $355.474 M. The film continues to pad its total over the $333.18 M final domestic gross of 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy and is running 29.1 percent ahead of the $275.38 M Guardians of the Galaxy grossed through 31 days of release.

Paramount’s Baywatch rounded out the weekend’s top five with an estimated $8.50 M. Baywatch declined 54.1 percent from last weekend, which represented a respectable second weekend hold given the film’s toxic critical reviews and the added competition from Wonder Woman this weekend. Baywatch has grossed a softer than expected $41.72 M in eleven days and is running a disappointing 52.9 percent below the $88.54 M eleven-day take of 2013’s The Hangover Part III.
