Weekend Box Office Report
June 8 - June 10, 2018




By Daniel Garris

Weekend Actuals Update:

With actuals now in, Warnerís Oceanís 8 came in just ahead of yesterdayís studio estimate with a first place debut of $41.607 million.

Most wide releases came in ahead of yesterdayís studio estimates, thanks to stronger than expected Sunday holds in general. Disneyís Solo: A Star Wars Story took second with $15.749 million, Foxís Deadpool 2 followed in third with $14.149 million and A24ís Hereditary opened in fourth with $13.575 million.

Other weekend actuals for the frame include: Avengers: Infinity War ($7.239 million), Adrift ($5.272 million), Book Club ($4.285 million), Hotel Artemis ($3.233 million), Upgrade ($2.384 million) and Life of the Party ($2.167 million).

On the platform front, Focusí Wonít You Be My Neighbor? began its run with $475,419 from 29 locations, for a per-location average of $16,394 for the frame.

Weekend Estimates Update:

Warnerís Oceanís 8 was off to a very healthy first place start this weekend with an estimated $41.50 million. That represented the largest debut ever for the Oceanís franchise, as Oceanís 8 topped the $39.15 million start of 2004ís Oceanís Twelve by 6.0 percent (though Oceanís 8 was obviously aided by 14 years of ticket price inflation in the comparison). Oceanís 8 opened towards the higher end of expectations, which had ranged anywhere from $33 million to $45 million heading into the weekend. The film also performed well with its reported $70 million production budget in mind. Oceanís 8 delivered the second highest live-action debut ever for Sandra Bullock, behind only the $55.79 million launch of 2013ís Gravity and ahead of the $39.12 million start of 2013ís The Heat. Oceanís 8 also delivered the seventh largest opening weekend of 2018 to date. The audience breakdown for Oceanís 8 skewed heavily towards both female moviegoers (69 percent) and moviegoers over the age of 25 (also 69 percent).

Oceanís 8 started out with an estimated $15.73 million on Friday (which included an estimated $4.0 million from Thursday shows that began at 4PM), decreased 4.3 percent on Saturday to gross $15.05 million (which represented a very solid hold given how early the filmís Thursday previews started) and is estimated to decline 28.7 percent on Sunday to take in $10.73 million. Critical reviews for Oceanís 8 have been solid, while the film also received a solid B+ rating on CinemaScore. While Oceanís 8 (and the rest of the marketplace in general) will soon be facing massive new competition from both Disneyís Incredibles 2 (beginning this coming Friday) and Universalís Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (beginning on June 22), going forward Oceanís 8 is likely to benefit from the trend over of the years of Bullockís films typically displaying very strong holding power.

Internationally, Oceanís 8 grossed an estimated $12.2 million from 16 international markets, which places the filmís global haul at $53.7 million. International starts for Oceanís 8 this weekend included $4.7 million in Australia, $2.6 million in Mexico and $1.7 million in Brazil. This Wednesday, Oceanís 8 will open in France and South Korea, while the following week the film will open in Germany, Russia and the United Kingdom.

After topping the box office for the past two weeks, Disneyís Solo: A Star Wars Story slid to second place this weekend with an estimated $15.15 million. Solo: A Star Wars Story did stabilize a bit this weekend, but the film was still down a sizable 48.5 percent from last weekend. The 17-day total for Solo: A Star Wars Story stands at a significantly softer than expected $176.11 million. That places the film 10.8 percent behind the $197.41 million 17-day take of last yearís Justice League (which fell 59.5 percent in its third weekend to take in $16.65 million).

Solo: A Star Wars Story continued to perform poorer internationally than domestically with an estimated international take of $11.3 million for the weekend. That brings the current international total for Solo: A Star Wars Story to just $136.1 million and current global total to $312.2 million. International totals for Solo: A Star Wars Story by market include $21.8 million in the United Kingdom, $16.3 million in China, $12.0 million in Germany, $11.0 million in Australia, $9.3 million in France, $6.0 million in Spain, $5.6 million in Russia, $4.7 million in Mexico, $4.5 million in Italy and $3.4 million in Brazil.

Foxís Deadpool 2 followed in third place with an estimated $13.65 million. That represented a solid 41.1 percent decline from last weekend, as the film continues to stabilize as it gets further away from its early front-loading. Deadpool 2 has grossed a strong $278.67 million in 24 days. That places the film a very respectable 10.5 percent behind the $311.48 million 24-day take of 2016ís Deadpool (which declined 46.2 percent in its fourth weekend to gross $16.73 million) and leaves Deadpool 2 $21.33 million away from reaching the $300 million domestic milestone.

Deadpool 2 continued to impress internationally this weekend with an estimated $18.51 million. That brings the filmís international total to $376.6 million and current global haul to an impressive $655.3 million. Current international totals for Deadpool 2 by market include $40.1 million in the United Kingdom, $31.6 million in South Korea, $24.8 million in Australia, $21.0 million in Mexico, $20.3 million in Germany, $19.9 million in France, $17.4 million in Brazil, $10.2 million in Japan and $10.1 million in Spain.

A24ís Hereditary debuted in fourth place with an estimated $13.04 million. The low-budget horror film was off to a very good start with its cost in mind and delivered the largest opening weekend performance ever in A24ís young history, as it topped the $8.80 million debut of the distributorís previous high-water mark, 2016ís The Witch, by an impressive 48.2 percent. Hereditary also outpaced pre-release expectations this weekend, which had ranged anywhere from $6 million to $12 million.

Hereditary began its run with $5.18 million on Friday (which included an estimated $1.31 million from Thursday night shows), declined a reasonable 9.8 percent on Saturday to take in $4.67 million and is estimated to decrease 32.0 percent on Sunday to gross $3.18 million. Hereditary appears to have been aided greatly this weekend by its very strong critical reviews. However, much like previous A24 horror films The Witch and last yearís It Comes At Night, Hereditary doesnít look to be going over as well with audiences as it has with critics, as the film received a troubling D+ rating on CinemaScore. Going forward, Hereditary will hope to follow in the footsteps of The Witch (which still registered a healthy total gross to opening weekend ratio of 2.86 to 1) as opposed to It Comes At Night (which managed a total gross to opening weekend ratio of just 2.34 to 1).

Disneyís Avengers: Infinity War rounded out the weekendís top five with an estimated $6.84 million. Avengers: Infinity War held up well this weekend, as the film declined 34.9 percent. This weekend, Avengers: Infinity War passed the $652.27 million total gross of 2015ís Jurassic World to move into fifth place on the all-time unadjusted domestic list. Avengers: Infinity War has grossed $654.73 million in 45 days, which leaves the film just $4.64 million away from passing the $659.36 million lifetime gross of 1997ís Titanic to move into fourth place all-time domestically. Avengers: Infinity War is also on the verge of reaching the $2 billion global milestone with a current global haul of $1.998 billion. Avengers: Infinity War took in an estimated $10.9 million internationally this weekend and has grossed $1.343 billion internationally to date. The film continued to excel in China where it grossed an estimated $6.2 million this weekend and has grossed $368.4 million so far.

STXfilmís Adrift and Paramountís Book Club claimed sixth and seventh place with respective estimates of $5.05 million and $4.20 million. Both films took clear hits from the added presence of Oceanís 8 in the marketplace, as Adrift was down 56.5 percent from last weekend, while Book Club declined 40.3 percent. To date, Adrift has grossed a respectable $21.74 million in ten days and Book Club has grossed an impressive $56.87 million in 24 days (which gives the film a current total gross to opening weekend ratio of 4.19 to 1).

Meanwhile, Global Roadís Hotel Artemis was off to a disappointing eighth place start with an estimated $3.15 million. Hotel Artemis opened below its already modest expectations and managed a per-location average of only $1,309 this weekend. Hotel Artemis came in 32.5 percent below last weekendís $4.67 million start of BH Tiltís Upgrade and 31.8 percent ahead of the last weekendís $2.39 million start of Paramountís Action Point. Critical reviews for Hotel Artemis have been mixed, while the film received a soft C- rating on CinemaScore.

On the platform front, Focusís Wonít You Be My Neighbor? was off to a good start with an estimated $470,000 from 29 locations. That gave the critically acclaimed documentary about Fred Rogers a healthy per-location average of $16,207 for the frame. This weekendís platform launch for Wonít You Be My Neighbor? was similar to the recent platform launch of Magnoliaís RBG, which started out with $578,470 from 34 locations (for a per-location average of $17,014) back in early May. Wonít You Be My Neighbor? is scheduled to receive significant expansions each of the next two weekends.

In other box office news, Universalís Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom began its international run with a strong estimated international launch of $151.1 million. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom delivered the largest opening weekend ever for the Jurassic Park franchise in a number of international markets, including South Korea, Spain, Taiwan, India, Thailand and Hong Kong. International debuts for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom included $27.2 million in South Korea, $20.0 million in the United Kingdom, $10.0 million in France, $9.5 million in Spain, $9.1 million in Germany, $8.4 million in Taiwan, $8.0 million in Russia, $7.9 million in India, $5.2 million in Indonesia, $4.7 million in Thailand, $4.5 million in Italy, $4.3 million in Hong Kong, $4.1 million in Malaysia and $4.1 million in the Philippines. Future international openings for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom include China on June 15, Australia and Brazil on June 21, Mexico on June 22 and Japan on July 13.
