Weekend Box Office Report
July 28 - July 30, 2017




By Daniel Garris

Weekend Actuals Update:

With actuals now in, Warner’s Dunkirk was able to hold unto first place this weekend with $26.611 M. Dunkirk and most other wide releases declined a bit from Sunday’s studio estimates.

Sony’s The Emoji Movie debuted in second with $24.532 M, Universal’s Girls Trip claimed third with $19.646 M and Focus’ Atomic Blonde debuted in fourth with $18.286 M.

Other weekend actuals for the frame include: Spider-Man: Homecoming ($13.261 M), War for the Planet of the Apes ($10.472 M), Despicable Me 3 ($7.593 M), Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets ($6.360 M), Baby Driver ($3.971 M), Wonder Woman ($3.341 M), The Big Sick ($3.178 M), Detroit ($350 K) & An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power ($125 K).

Weekend Estimates Update:

Warner’s Dunkirk took in an estimated $28.13 M to remain in first place at the box office this weekend. Dunkirk is the first film to lead the box office for more than one weekend since fellow Warner Bros. release Wonder Woman did so back in early June. Dunkirk was down 44.3 percent from last weekend. That represented a healthy second weekend hold, especially since Dunkirk displayed initial front-loading last weekend. Dunkirk passed the $100 M domestic mark this weekend and has grossed $102.84 M in ten days. That places the film 6.1 percent ahead of the $96.93 M grossed by 2014’s Interstellar after ten days of wide release (Interstellar fell 40.4 percent in its second weekend to gross $28.31 M) and 28.0 percent behind the $142.88 M ten-day take of 2010’s Inception (which declined 32.0 percent in its second weekend to gross $42.73 M). Dunkirk is quite likely to hold up well throughout the month of August, especially with the film continuing to play on IMAX screens during that time.

Internationally, Dunkirk grossed an estimated $45.6M this weekend from 63 markets. That was down just 36 percent from last weekend's performance. Dunkirk has grossed $131.3 M thus far internationally and $234.1 M globally. Dunkirk held up especially well in the U.K. this weekend, as the film was down just 16 percent to gross $10.9 M. The film’s ten-day U.K. total stands at $35.4 M.

Sony’s The Emoji Movie debuted in second place this weekend with an estimated $25.65 M. The Emoji Movie opened in line with expectations, which had tended to range anywhere from $20 M to $30 M heading into the weekend. The film was also off to a solid start with its reported $50 M production budget in mind. The Emoji Movie debuted 6.8 percent ahead of the $24.01 M opening of 2015’s Pixels and 32.8 percent behind the $38.16 M launch of last year’s The Angry Birds Movie.

While The Emoji Movie proved to be critic proof this weekend, the film did display early front-loading. The Emoji Movie started out with $10.05 M on Friday (which included an estimated $900 K from Thursday night shows that began at 5PM), declined 13.8 percent on Saturday to take in $8.67 M and is estimated to decrease 20.0 percent on Sunday to gross $6.94 M. The critical response to The Emoji Movie has been extremely poor. The film has a current score of just 2.025 on our LoveHate Rate aggregate measurement of critical and online ratings. That currently represents the lowest score for any qualifying film released during the 2010s. However, The Emoji Movie appears to be going over significantly better with its target audience, as the film received a B rating on CinemaScore (and an A- rating from moviegoers under 18).

Universal’s Girls Trip held up exceptionally well in its second weekend with an estimated third place take of $20.09 M. Girls Trip declined just 35.6 percent from last weekend’s debut, as the film continues to cement its status as the comedy break-out hit of this summer. The ten-day total for Girls Trip stands at a stronger than expected $65.52 M. Girls Trip is running 28.9 percent ahead of the $50.85 M ten-day take of last year’s Bad Moms (which declined 41.2 percent in its second weekend to gross $14.00 M) and 8.4 percent ahead of the $60.47 M ten-day total of 2012’s Think Like a Man (which decreased 47.7 percent in its second weekend to gross $17.60 M). Given its strong word of mouth and strong early holding power, Girls Trip will have no problem zooming past the $100 M domestic mark.

Focus’ Atomic Blonde debuted in fourth place with an estimated $18.55 M. The Charlize Theron action vehicle performed towards the lower end of expectations and was off to a promising start with its modest $30 M production budget in mind. Atomic Blonde started out 28.6 percent stronger than the $14.42 M opening of 2014’s John Wick and 39.1 percent below the $30.44 M start of this year’s John Wick: Chapter Two (though Atomic Blonde hadn’t been expected to reach the opening weekend heights of John Wick: Chapter Two).

Atomic Blonde started with $7.11 M on Friday (which included an estimated $1.52 M from Thursday night shows that began at 7PM), slowed a modest 8.1 percent on Saturday to take in $6.54 M and is estimated to decrease 25.0 percent on Sunday to gross $4.90 M. The reception to Atomic Blonde among critics and online users has been solid, as the film has a current LoveHate Rate of 7.120. The film received a respectable B rating on CinemaScore.

Sony’s Spider-Man: Homecoming rounded out the weekend’s top five with an estimated $13.45 M. After initial front-loading, Spider-Man: Homecoming continues to stabilize nicely, as the film was down a solid 39.3 percent from last weekend. Spider-Man: Homecoming has grossed a healthy $278.36 M in 24 days. That is in line with the film’s lofty expectations and leaves the film just $21.64 M away from reaching the $300 M domestic milestone.

Fox’s War for the Planet of the Apes followed in sixth place with an estimated $10.38 M. War for the Planet of the Apes was down a sizable 50.3 percent from last weekend. The 17-day total for War for the Planet of the Apes stands at $118.69 M. That places the film an underwhelming 31.2 percent behind the $172.46 M 17-day gross of 2014’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

Universal’s Despicable Me 3 placed in seventh with an estimated $7.73 M. Despicable Me 3 declined 40.6 percent, which represented a solid hold, especially with The Emoji Movie entering the marketplace. Despicable Me 3 has grossed $230.43 M in 31 days. The film continues to perform far stronger internationally, where it grossed an estimated $36.1 M this weekend from 63 territories. That brings the international total for Despicable Me 3 to $588.8 M and global haul to a massive $819.2 M.

On the platform front, Annapurna Pictures’ Detroit launched with an estimated $365 K from 20 locations, while Paramount’s An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power started out with an estimated $130 K from 4 locations in New York and Los Angeles. That placed this weekend’s respective per-location averages at $18,273 for Detroit and at $32,500 for An Inconvenient Sequel. This coming Friday Detroit will expand into wide release and An Inconvenient Sequel will receive a major expansion.
