4-Day Weekend Box Office Report
December 29, 2017 - January 1, 2018




By Daniel Garris

Updated 4-Day Weekend Estimates:

Based on today’s revised 4-day weekend studio estimates, Disney’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi has moved slightly past Sony’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle to claim first place over the four-day frame. Respective four-day estimates stand at $68.39 M for Star Wars: The Last Jedi and at $66.50 M for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. Revised three-day estimates now stand at $52.66 M for Star Wars: The Last Jedi and at $50.35 M for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

With the updated estimate, Star Wars: The Last Jedi has now passed the $532.18 M final gross of 2016's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to move into 7th place on the all-time unadjusted domestic list.

Other revised four-day studio estimates today include $21.01 M for Universal’s Pitch Perfect 3, $20.75 M for Fox’s The Greatest Showman, $14.60 M for fellow Fox release Ferdinand, $9.69 M for Disney’s Coco, $7.59 M for Focus’ Darkest Hour and $7.53 M for Sony’s All the Money in the World.

4-Day weekend actuals for the New Year's holiday frame will be released on Tuesday.

Happy New Year!!

4-Day Weekend Estimates Update:

It ended up being a far closer than expected race at the box office this weekend between Disney’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Sony’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. Based on studio estimates, Star Wars: The Last Jedi currently has the slight edge over the three-day frame, while Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle surprisingly has the slight edge over the four-day frame. Given how close the two films are to one another this weekend, the order of finish between the two for the three-day and four-day frames are both currently up in the air.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle grossed an estimated $50.57 M for the three-day frame and an estimated $67.00 M for the four-day frame. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was up a terrific 38.9 percent over last weekend’s three-day frame and up 20.9 percent over the four-day frame. Strong word of mouth is clearly benefiting Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle in a big way and the film also appears to be benefiting from attracting potential moviegoers away from Star Wars: The Last Jedi as time goes on (likely even more so when it comes to potential repeat business for The Last Jedi). The estimated thirteen-day total for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle through Monday stands at a significantly stronger than expected $186.25 M. That already gives Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle an exceptional current total gross to opening weekend ratio of 5.12 to 1 and places the film an impressive 3.0 percent ahead of the $180.89 M thirteen-day start of last year’s Sing.

Internationally, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle took in an estimated $67.0 M from 50 international markets. The film’s international total stands at $153.0 M, while the film’s global total stands at $322.8 M. This weekend Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle debuted with $12.1 M in Australia. International totals to date for the film include $23.6 M in the U.K, $11.4 M in France, $11.3 M in Malaysia, $10.0 M in Mexico, $9.3 M in Germany and $8.7 M in Russia. In the coming days Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle will open in Italy (January 1), South Korea (January 3), Brazil (January 4) and China (January 12).

Star Wars: The Last Jedi grossed an estimated $52.45 M over the three-day weekend and an estimated $65.56 M over the four-day weekend. It should be noted that the current estimated Monday hold for Star Wars: The Last Jedi is soft in comparison to those for other films, but at the same time Star Wars: The Last Jedi has also been falling off much faster than other films in the marketplace. Star Wars: The Last Jedi declined 26.7 percent over the three-day frame and a relatively sharp 33.8 percent over the four-day frame. With that said, this weekend’s three-day gross for Star Wars: The Last Jedi still represented the fifth largest third weekend gross of all-time. Star Wars: The Last Jedi also zoomed past the $500 M domestic mark this weekend, as well as the $504.01 M final gross of this year’s Beauty and the Beast to become the highest grossing release of 2017 domestically and the eighth highest grossing unadjusted film of all-time domestically. With an 18-day total of $530.26 M through Monday, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is on the verge of passing the $532.18 M final gross of last year’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and is running 20.3 percent ahead of the $440.90 M 18-day haul of Rogue One.

With the addition of an estimated $68.0 M internationally this weekend from 54 international markets, Star Wars: The Last Jedi also passed the $1 billion global mark this weekend. Through Sunday, Star Wars: The Last Jedi has grossed $523.3 M internationally and $1.040 B globally. International totals to date for Star Wars: The Last Jedi include $91.5 M in the U.K., $62.0 M in Germany, $45.6 M in France, $40.4 M in Japan, $35.1 M in Australia, $19.9 M in Spain, $15.9 M in Brazil, $15.8 M in Italy and $13.4 M in Russia. Star Wars: The Last Jedi will open in China on January 5.

Universal’s Pitch Perfect 3 held steady in third place with respective estimated three-day and four-day grosses of $17.78 M and $22.74 M. Pitch Perfect 3 had a very respectable hold this weekend, as the film declined 10.8 percent over the three-day frame and 13.9 percent over the four-day frame. The eleven-day total for Pitch Perfect 3 through Monday stands at $69.23 M. That is in line with the film's scaled back expectations. Pitch Perfect 3 is running a sizable, but understandable 44.9 percent behind the $125.74 M eleven-day take of 2015’s Pitch Perfect 2. It should be noted that Pitch Perfect 3 is continuing to make up ground in the comparison thanks to having stronger holding power.

Pitch Perfect 3 grossed an estimated $13.1 M internationally this weekend from 34 international markets. That brings the film’s international total to $28.6 M and global total through Sunday to $97.8 M. Current international totals for Pitch Perfect 3 include $11.7 M in the U.K. and $5.2 M in Germany. Pitch Perfect 3 will open in Australia on January 1.

Fox’s The Greatest Showman held up extremely well this weekend with respective estimated three-day and four-day fourth place takes of $15.27 M and $20.30 M. The Greatest Showman was up a tremendous 73.4 percent from last weekend’s deflated three-day start up 40.9 percent over last weekend’s four-day frame. The estimated thirteen-day total through Monday for The Greatest Showman stands at $53.82 M, which is on the high end of expectations and already gives the film a current total gross to opening weekend ratio of 6.11 to 1. The Greatest Showman is running a respectable 18.7 percent behind the $66.18 M thirteen-day haul of last year’s Passengers.

Internationally, The Greatest Showman took in an estimated $28.5 M this weekend from 58 international markets. Through Sunday, The Greatest Showman has grossed $35.2 M internationally and $84.0 M globally. This weekend The Greatest Showman debuted with $6.1 M in the U.K., $5.3 M in Australia, $2.7 M in Mexico and $2.3 M in Italy, while the films has now grossed $5.8 M to date in South Korea.

Computer animated holdovers Ferdinand and Coco claimed fifth and sixth place respectively. For the three-day and four-day frames Ferdinand took in an estimated $11.65 M and $15.15 M, while Coco grossed an estimated $6.57 M and $8.76 M. Respective total grosses through Monday stand at an impressive $181.14 M for Coco in 41 days and at an encouraging $57.31 M for Ferdinand in 18 days.

Internationally, Ferdinand grossed an estimated $23.1 M this weekend, while Coco grossed an estimated $21.4 M. Through Sunday, Coco has grossed $359.0 M internationally and $537.9 M globally, while Ferdinand has grossed $71.9 M internationally and $125.7 M globally through Sunday.

In its first full weekend of release, Sony’s All the Money in the World placed in seventh with respective estimated three-day and four-day takes of $5.45 M and $7.21 M. Since opening on Christmas Day, All the Money in the World has grossed $14.40 M through eight days of release.

Also in its first full weekend of release was STXfilms’ Molly’s Game, which took in estimated three-day and four-day grosses of $2.33 M and $3.11 M from just 271 locations. Molly’s Game has grossed a promising $6.01 M through eight days of moderate release and will expand into wide release this coming Friday.
