Weekend Box Office Report
May 11 - May 13, 2018




By Daniel Garris

Weekend Actuals Update:

With actuals now in, Disneyís Avengers: Infinity War came in just ahead of yesterdayís studio estimate with a third weekend take of $62.078 million. That represented the fourth largest third weekend gross of all-time.

The race for second place was ultimately very tight between Warnerís Life of the Party ($17.886 million) and Breaking In ($17.630 million) after Breaking In had a stronger than expected Motherís Day performance and Life of the Party had a softer than expected Motherís Day performance.

Other weekend actuals for the frame include: Overboard ($9.864 million), A Quiet Place ($6.455 million), I Feel Pretty ($3.805 million), Rampage ($3.462 million), Tully ($2.249 million), Black Panther ($2.077 million), RBG ($1.188 million), A Wrinkle in Time ($1.157 million), Blockers ($1.115 million) and Isle of Dogs ($1.073 million).

Weekend Estimates Update:

Disneyís Avengers: Infinity War took in an estimated $61.82 million this weekend to easily remain in first place at the domestic box office. Avengers: Infinity War was down 46.1 percent from last weekend, which represents a very respectable third weekend hold for a film of this size. Avengers: Infinity War registered the fourth largest third weekend gross of all-time, behind only 2015ís Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($90.24 million), 2009ís Avatar ($68.49 million) and this yearís Black Panther ($66.31 million) and ahead of 2012ís Marvelís The Avengers ($55.64 million). In addition to continuing to be helped by its very strong word of mouth, Avengers: Infinity War looks to have received a bit of an added boost this weekend from moviegoers who wanted to see the film (or see it again) before Foxís highly anticipated Deadpool 2 enters the marketplace this coming Friday.

Avengers: Infinity War has grossed $547.83 million through 17 days of release. That places the film 19.7 percent ahead of the $457.67 million 17-day take of Marvelís The Avengers, 9.2 percent ahead of the $501.71 million 17-day gross of Black Panther and 26.2 percent behind the $742.21 million 17-day haul of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This weekend Avengers: Infinity War passed 2016ís Finding Dory, last yearís Beauty and the Beast, 2016ís Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and 2008ís The Dark Knight to move into eighth place on the all-time unadjusted domestic list.

Internationally, Avengers: Infinity War grossed an estimated $281.3 million this weekend. The filmís international performance this weekend was driven by an exceptional $200.0 million launch in China. That already makes Avengers: Infinity War the ninth highest grossing western release of all-time in China. To date, Avegners: Infinity War has grossed $1.059 billion internationally and $1.607 billion globally. Avengers: Infinity War is now the fifth highest grossing film of all-time globally and the highest grossing superhero film of all-time globally (having surpassed the $1.519 billion global gross of previous record holder Marvelís The Avengers).

In addition to the filmís $200.0 million start in China, current international totals by market for Avengers: Infinity War include $84.6 million in South Korea, $82.1 million in the U.K., $55.6 million in Brazil, $54.8 million in Mexico, $41.0 million in India, $40.7 million in Australia, $39.8 million in France, $36.1 million in Germany, $28.6 million in Russia, $27.8 million in Japan, $24.4 million in Indonesia, $21.8 million in the Philippines, $21.3 million in Spain and $21.0 million in Italy. Avengers: Infinity War is already the highest grossing film of all-time in a handful of markets, including Brazil, Indonesia, the Philippines and Malaysia and is the highest grossing western release ever in India. The film is also the second highest grossing film of all-time in Mexico and Thailand and the second highest grossing western release ever in South Korea.

Warner Bros. and New Lineís Life of the Party debuted in second place this weekend with an estimated $18.50 million. Life of the Party performed in line with mass expectations, which had ranged from roughly $17 million to $22 million heading into the weekend. Life of the Party did open lower than recent Melissa McCarthy vehicles, including 2015ís Spy ($29.09 million) and 2016ís The Boss ($23.59 million), though that had been largely expected. In comparison to last yearís Motherís Day weekend release, Life of the Party debuted 5.3 percent below the $19.54 million start of Snatched. Potential for Life of the Party appears to have been limited a bit by the filmís mostly negative critical reviews.

Life of the Party started out with $4.94 million on Friday (which included an estimated $700,000 from Thursday night shows that began at 7PM), increased 22.6 percent on Saturday to take in $6.05 million and is estimated to increase 24.2 percent on Motherís Day to gross $7.52 million. Because of the Motherís Day holiday, there is more room for error than usual when it comes to Sundayís estimates in general this weekend. Life of the Party received a respectable B rating on CinemaScore, which suggests that the film is going over better with audiences than it has with critics. Internationally, Life of the Party grossed an estimated $2.9 million this weekend from 8 markets, including $1.5 million from Australia and $858,000 from the U.K.

Universalís Breaking In opened in third place with an estimated $16.50 million. The Gabrielle Union led thriller performed in line with mass expectations, which had tended to range from $14 million to $19 million for the weekend. Breaking In also performed nicely with its low production budget in mind. Breaking In opened lower than usual for a Will Packer produced film, but that had been expected. Breaking In did open 9.0 percent ahead of the $15.13 million start of 2016ís Almost Christmas (another Packer produced film that also featured Union).

Breaking In began its run with $4.59 million on Friday (which included an estimated $615,000 from Thursday night shows that began at 7PM), increased a promising 24.4 percent on Saturday to gross $5.70 million and is estimated to increase 8.9 percent on Motherís Day Sunday to register $6.21 million. Breaking In has received poor critical reviews, but like Life of the Party, also received a B rating on CinemaScore this weekend. That is solid for a thriller and suggests that Breaking In is going over much better with audiences than it has with critics. Internationally, Breaking In grossed an estimated $1.0 million this weekend from 5 markets, including $609,000 from the U.K.

Lionsgate, Pantelion and MGMís Overboard held up very well in its second weekend with an estimated fourth place take of $10.10 million. That represented a decline of just 31.3 percent from last weekendís start. Good word of mouth, the Motherís Day holiday and an expansion into an additional 383 locations all helped Overboard this weekend. Overboard has grossed $29.59 million in ten days. That places the film a healthy 44.0 percent ahead of the $20.55 million ten-day take of last yearís How to Be a Latin Lover, which declined a much sharper 58.0 percent in its second weekend to gross $5.14 million. In the coming days, Overboard will zoom past the $32.15 million final domestic gross of How to Be a Latin Lover. Overboard is also now a virtual lock to eventually surpass the $44.47 million final gross of 2013ís Instructions Not Included. Internationally, Overboard was off to an exceptional $10.5 million four-day start in Mexico.

Paramountís A Quiet Place rounded out the weekendís top five with an estimated $6.40 million. A Quiet Place had a terrific hold over Motherís Day weekend, as the film declined just 17.6 percent for the frame. A Quiet Place has grossed a much stronger than expected $169.55 million in 38 days, which places the film 8.2 percent ahead of the $156.73 million 38-day take of last yearís Get Out (which declined 36.1 percent in its sixth weekend to gross $5.66 million). A Quiet Place remains the third highest grossing release of 2018 to date domestically, behind only Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War.

STXfilmsí I Feel Pretty and Warnerís Rampage claimed sixth and seventh place with respective estimated grosses of $3.71 million and $3.38 million. Both films were aided by Motherís Day weekend, as I Feel Pretty was down 26.5 percent from last weekend, while Rampage declined a very similar 27.1 percent. Both films continue to perform in line with expectations, with respective current total grosses of $43.86 million for I Feel Pretty in 24 days and $89.74 million for Rampage in 31 days.

On the platform front, Magnolia Picturesí RBG continued to impress with an estimated $1.165 million from just 180 locations, for a very solid per-location average of $6,472. The critically acclaimed Ruth Bader Ginsburg documentary placed in tenth among all films this weekend. RBG has grossed $2.00 million in ten days of platform release. The film will expand to additional theatres this coming Friday.
