Weekend Box Office Report
June 30 - July 2, 2017




By Daniel Garris

Weekend Estimates Update:

Universalís Despicable Me 3 debuted in first place this weekend with an estimated $75.41 M. Despicable Me 3 opened below expectations, which had tended to range from $80 M - $100 M heading into the weekend. At the same time, Despicable Me 3 still delivered the sixth largest opening weekend of 2017 to date and the largest opening weekend of 2017 thus far for an animated film. Despicable Me 3 also delivered the fourth largest 3-day Independence Day weekend opening ever, the eleventh largest June opening of all-time and the tenth largest opening weekend ever for Universal. Despicable Me 3 opened 34.8 percent below the $115.72 M launch of 2015ís Minions and 40.5 percent ahead of the recent $53.69 M start of Cars 3.

Despicable Me 3 started out with $29.12 M on Friday (which included an estimated $4.10 M from preview shows that began at 6PM on Thursday), declined 16.3 percent on Saturday to take in $24.37 M and is estimated to decline 10.0 percent on Sunday to gross $21.92 M. The reception to Despicable Me 3 from critics and online users has been lukewarm, as the film currently has a score of 6.308 on our LoveHate Rate aggregate measurement of critical and online ratings. Despicable Me 3 appears to be going over better with audiences, as the film received a healthy A- rating on CinemaScore.

Internationally, Despicable Me 3 grossed an estimated $95.6 M this weekend from 52 territories. That brings the filmís international total to $116.9 M and global total to $192.3 M. Key international openings this weekend included $14.7 M in the United Kingdom, $13.5 M in Mexico, $9.2 M in Russia, $7.5 M in Brazil and $5.5 M in Spain.

Sonyís Baby Driver was off to an impressive second place start this weekend with an estimated $21.00 M. That brings the five-day total for Baby Driver to a stronger than expected $30.03 M. After a very solid start over Wednesday and Thursday, Baby Driver picked up the pace nicely over the weekend, thanks in part to exceptional critical reviews and strong early word of mouth. Baby Driver currently has a LoveHate Rate of 9.207, which is the highest of any 2017 release thus far and received an A- rating on CinemaScore. The filmís modest 5-day to 3-day ratio of 1.43 to 1 is a very good early sign for the film going forward. The five-day launch for Baby Driver was just 9.1 percent below the $33.03 M five-day start of 2013ís The Is the End and 14.5 percent ahead of the $26.22 M five-day take of 2014ís Letís Be Cops.

Paramountís Transformers: The Last Knight was down two spots from last weekend to place in third with an estimated $17.00 M. Transformers: The Last Knight fell a very sharp 62.0 percent from last weekendís opening (which was deflated by the film opening on a Wednesday). Transformers: The Last Knight did pass the $100 M mark this weekend and has grossed $102.10 M through twelve days of release. That places the film a disappointing 44.9 percent behind the $185.40 M twelve-day take of 2014ís Transformers: Age of Extinction and 48.3 percent ahead of the $68.85 M twelve-day gross of 2015ís Terminator Genisys. Transformers: The Last Knight is likely to experience another sharp decline next weekend, especially with Sonyís highly anticipated Spider-Man: Homecoming entering the marketplace on Friday.

Warnerís Wonder Woman claimed fourth place with an estimated $15.58 M. Wonder Woman declined a solid 37.5 percent from last weekend and registered the 15th highest unadjusted fifth weekend gross of all-time. The 31-day total for Wonder Woman stands at a massive $346.10 M. Wonder Woman currently ranks in 42nd place on the all-time unadjusted domestic list. The film is running 25.7 percent ahead of the $275.38 M 31-day gross of 2014ís Guardians of the Galaxy. The current total gross to opening weekend ratio for Wonder Woman is 3.35 to 1, which is exceptional for a comic book adaptation.

Disneyís Cars 3 rounded out the weekendís top five with an estimated $9.52 M. Cars 3 was down a sharp 60.4 percent from last weekend, as the film clearly took a significant hit from Despicable Me 3 entering the marketplace. The 17-day total for Cars 3 stands at $120.71 M. That places the film 18.9 percent behind the $148.83 M 17-day gross of 2011ís Cars 2. Cars 3 will hope to stabilize going forward with the launch of Despicable Me 3 now out of the way.

Meanwhile, Warnerís The House disappointed with an estimated sixth place start of $9.00 M. The House debuted below already scaled back expectations and performed quite poorly by Will Ferrellís lofty box office standards. In fact, you have to go all the way back to the 1998 $9.60 M start of A Night at the Roxbury and the 1999 $8.91 M start of Superstar to find wide releases starring Ferrell that delivered similar opening weekend grosses to The House. Audiences havenít been in the mood for R-rated comedies as of late and potential for The House was also limited by the break-out performance of Baby Driver this weekend. Also not helping matters is that The House has gone over very poorly with critics and online users, as the film has a poor LoveHate Rate of just 3.906. The filmís modest B- rating on CinemaScore isnít a great early sign either.

After successful platform launches last weekend, Focusí The Beguiled and Lionsgateís The Big Sick both expanded this weekend. The Beguiled took in an estimated $3.26 M from 674 locations, for a respectable per-location average of $4,836. The Big Sick was relatively more impressive with an estimated $1.67 M from just 71 locations, for a per-location average of $23,552. Respective ten-day grosses stand at $3.58 M for The Beguiled and at $2.23 M for The Big Sick. The very well received The Big Sick will expand into wide release on July 14.
