Weekend Box Office Report
May 4 - May 6, 2018




By Daniel Garris

Weekend Actuals Update:

The weekend actual for Disney’s Avengers: Infinity War came in at $114,774,810. That was just over $2 million higher than yesterday’s studio estimate, thanks to a stronger than expected Sunday hold. Avengers: Infinity War registered the second largest second weekend gross of all-time.

The all-time second weekend box office chart can be found at: www.boxofficereport.com/2ndweekends.html

Other weekend actuals for the frame include: Overboard ($14.711 million), A Quiet Place ($7.763 million), I Feel Pretty ($5.051 million), Rampage ($4.637 million), Tully ($3.283 million), Black Panther ($3.255 million), Truth or Dare ($1.888 million) and Super Troopers 2 ($1.871 million).

Weekend Estimates Update:

Disney’s Avengers: Infinity War grossed an estimated $112.47 million in its second weekend of release. That represented the second largest second weekend gross of all-time, behind only the $149.20 million second weekend gross of 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens and was just ahead of the $111.66 million second weekend gross of Black Panther earlier this year. Avengers: Infinity War declined 56.4 percent from last weekend’s debut, which represented a respectable second weekend percentage hold for a superhero sequel with grosses of this magnitude.

The ten-day total for Avengers: Infinity War stands at $450.81 million. Avengers: Infinity War registered the second largest ten-day start of all-time; trailing only the $540.06 million ten-day haul of Star Wars: The Force Awakens (by 16.5 percent). In comparison to other Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) event films, Avengers: Infinity War is running 11.7 percent ahead of the $403.61 million ten-day gross of Black Panther and 20.8 percent ahead of the $373.07 million ten-day take of 2012’s Marvel’s The Avengers. Avengers: Infinity War has already moved into 15th place on the all-time unadjusted domestic list, just ahead of 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises and behind 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.

This weekend also saw Avengers: Infinity War zoom past the $1 billion global mark, which made the film the fastest ever to reach the $1 billion global milestone. Avengers: Infinity War took in an estimated $162.6 million internationally this weekend, which brings the film’s international total to $713.3 million and current global haul to a massive $1.164 billion. Current international totals by market for Avengers: Infinity War include $69.1 million in South Korea, $67.2 million in the U.K., $48.7 million in Mexico, $44.3 million in Brazil, $44.3 million in India, $35.7 million in Australia, $31.5 million in France, $28.8 million in Germany, $23.9 million in Japan, $20.6 million in Indonesia, $19.7 million in the Philippines, $18.9 million in Italy and $17.7 million in Spain. In Russia this weekend, Avengers: Infinity War debuted with a record-breaking $17.6 million over its first four days. Avengers: Infinity War will open in China next weekend.

Lionsgate, Pantelion and MGM’s Overboard was off to a very nice start this weekend with an estimated second place take of $14.75 million. Overboard debuted on the very high end of expectations, which had ranged from $10 million to $15 million heading into the weekend. Overboard set a new high-water mark for Pantelion, as the film outpaced the $12.25 million debut of last year’s Eugenio Derbez vehicle How to Be a Latin Lover by 20.4 percent. Overboard played in a relatively modest 1,623 locations this weekend, which gave the film a strong per-location average of $9,088 for the frame. The film skewed towards female moviegoers (61 percent) and heavily towards moviegoers 25 years and older (83 percent).

Overboard started out with $4.84 million on Friday (which included an estimated $675,000 from Thursday night shows that began at 7PM), increased 5.6 percent on Saturday to take in $5.10 million and is estimated to decrease only 5.7 percent on Sunday to gross $4.81 million (Derbez’s films typically have extremely strong Sunday holds). While Overboard has gone over poorly with crtics, the film looks to be critic-proof with audiences as it received a healthy A- rating on CinemaScore. Overboard should also receive a boost in the coming days from both El Dia de la Madre on Thursday and Mother’s Day this coming Sunday.

Paramount’s A Quiet Place placed in third with an estimated $7.60 million. A Quiet Place re-stabilized nicely, as the film was down just 30.9 percent from last weekend. A Quiet Place continues to pad its break-out status with a significantly stronger than expected 31-day take of $159.89 million. Internationally, A Quiet Place grossed an estimated $4.1 million this weekend. That brings the film’s international total to $95.4 million and current global haul to $255.3 million.

STXfilms’ I Feel Pretty claimed fourth place with an estimated $4.90 million. I Feel Pretty was down a solid 40.1 percent from last weekend, but also appears to have taken a bit of a hit from Overboard this weekend. The 17-day total for I Feel Pretty stands at $37.80 million. That is in line with expectations and places the film just 6.1 percent behind the $40.26 million 17-day take of last year’s Snatched.

Warner Bros. and New Line’s Rampage took fifth with an estimated $4.62 million. On the heels of last weekend’s very sharp decline, Rampage rebounded this weekend to decline a very solid 35.9 percent. Rampage continues to perform in line with expectations with a respectable 24-day take of $84.78 million. The film continued to perform significantly stronger internationally this weekend with an estimated $13.7 million. To date, Rampage has grossed $293.1 million internationally and $377.9 million globally.

Meanwhile, Focus’ Tully debuted in sixth place with an estimated $3.19 million. Despite strong critical reviews, there just wasn’t much interest for the Jason Reitman directed film starring Charlize Theron. Tully did perform towards the lower end of its low expectations, which had ranged from roughly $3 million to $4.5 million. The performance of Tully this weekend was similar to the $3.40 million take of 2011’s Young Adult during its first major weekend of release. Tully will hope to have a strong hold next weekend with the aid of the Mother’s Day holiday.

Disney’s Black Panther took seventh place with an estimated $3.15 million. Black Panther was down a very solid 33.6 percent from last weekend. Black Panther is the third highest grossing film of all-time domestically with a massive 80-day gross of $693.13 million and is now just $6.87 million away from reaching the $700 million domestic milestone.

On the platform front, Magnolia Pictures’ RBG impressed with an estimated $560,000 launch from 34 locations, for a per-location average of $16,471. And in its second weekend of platform release, Bleecker Street’s Disobedience grossed an estimated $310,272 from 31 locations. That gave Disobedience a per-location average of $10,009 and brings the film’s 10-day total to $638,645. Both RBG and Disobedience will expand to additional theatres next weekend.
