Weekend Actuals Update:

With actuals now in, Universal’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom came in a bit ahead of yesterday’s estimate with a first place take of $60.912 million. Disney’s Incredibles 2 also finished ahead of its studio estimate with a second place gross of $46.418 million.

Sony’s Sicario: Day of the Soldado finished essentially on par with its studio estimate with a $19.008 million debut, while Lionsgate’s Uncle Drew came in a bit below its estimate with a $15.243 million start.

Other weekend actuals for the frame include: Ocean’s 8 ($8.333 million), Tag ($5.881 million), Deadpool 2 ($3.574 million), Sanju ($2.723 million from 356 locations), Solo: A Star Wars Story ($2.688 million), Won’t You Be My Neighbor? ($2.422 million from 654 locations), Hereditary ($2.287 million), Avengers: Infinity War ($1.543 million) & Superfly ($1.403 million).

Weekend Estimates Update:

Universal’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom took in an estimated $60.00 million this weekend to remain in first place at the box office. The film registered the 26th largest second weekend gross of all-time. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom fell a sharp 59.5 percent from last weekend’s debut. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom fell quite a bit harder in its second weekend than 2015’s Jurassic World did (which slowed 49.0 percent to gross $106.59 million), but that had been widely expected given Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom being a sequel and that the second weekend performance of Jurassic World benefited from the Father’s Day holiday. The ten-day total for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom stands at an excellent $264.79 million. That places the film 6.6 percent ahead of the $248.42 million ten-day haul of last year’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (which declined 55.5 percent in its second weekend to register $65.26 million) and 34.3 percent behind the $402.80 million ten-day take of Jurassic World. The ten-day start for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is the 19th largest of all-time without taking into account ticket price inflation.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom remained strong internationally this weekend with an estimated $56.1 million. To date, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has grossed $667.6 million internationally and $932.4 million globally. Current international totals by market for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom include $237.1 million in China, $45.8 million in the United Kingdom $45.6 million in South Korea, $23.8 million in Mexico, $23.1 million in France, $22.1 million in Germany, $21.1 million in Spain, $14.7 million in Australia and $12.7 million in Brazil.

Disney’s Incredibles 2 held steady in second place with an estimated $45.55 million. That represented the ninth largest third weekend gross of all-time. After last weekend’s sharper than anticipated second weekend decline, Incredibles 2 stabilized nicely this weekend as the film declined a solid 43.3 percent. Incredibles 2 zoomed past the $400 million domestic mark this weekend and has grossed an incredible $439.73 million in 17 days. Incredibles 2 is running 18.2 percent ahead of the $372.17 million 17-day gross of 2016’s Finding Dory (which decreased a similar 42.7 percent to gross $41.82 million in its third weekend). Incredibles 2 is now just $46.57 million away from passing the $486.30 million final domestic gross of Finding Dory to become both the highest grossing Pixar film and the highest grossing animated film of all-time domestically.

Internationally, Incredibles 2 took in an estimated $44.3 million this weekend. The film has grossed $207.1 million to date internationally and $646.8 million globally. Debuts for Incredibles 2 this weekend included $6.5 million in Brazil, $3.2 million in Taiwan and $1.4 million in New Zealand. Current international totals by market for Incredibles 2 include $40.8 million in China, $30.1 million in Mexico, $19.2 million in Australia, $13.1 million in Russia, $8.6 million in Argentina, $7.8 million in Colombia and $7.4 million in Indonesia.

Sony and Black Label Media’s Sicario: Day of the Soldado debuted in third place with an estimated $19.02 million. Sicario: Day of the Soldado exceeded expectations, which had ranged anywhere from $10 million to $18 million heading into the weekend. While critical reviews for the film have been surprisingly mixed, Sicario: Day of the Soldado looks to have benefited this weekend from the strong reception to 2015’s Sicario. Sicario: Day of the Soldado may have also received an added boost from co-star Josh Brolin coming off the recent blockbuster success of both Disney’s Avengers: Infinity War and Fox’s Deadpool 2. This weekend’s performance for Sicario: Day of the Soldado was 56.5 percent stronger than the $12.15 million grossed by Sicario in its first weekend of wide release, though Sicario had also grossed an additional $3.00 million from two weeks of platform release.

Sicario: Day of the Soldado started out with $7.47 million on Friday (which included an estimated $2.0 million from Thursday night shows that began at 7PM), decreased a sizable 17.0 percent on Saturday to take in $6.20 million and is estimated to decline 13.6 percent on Sunday to gross $5.36 million. Sicario: Day of the Soldado displayed significant initial front-loading this weekend, so it is highly likely that the film will be much more front-loaded going forward than Sicario was. Sicario: Day of the Soldado received a respectable B rating on CinemaScore, though that was lower than the A- rating received by Sicario.

Lionsgate and Summit’s Uncle Drew debuted in fourth place with an estimated $15.50 million. The Kyrie Irving led Uncle Drew opened in line with expectations, which like those for Sicario: Day of the Soldado, had ranged anywhere from $10 million to $18 million heading into the weekend. Uncle Drew was off to a very solid start this weekend with the film’s modest production budget in mind. Compared to other basketball comedies, Uncle Drew opened 87.1 percent stronger than the $8.28 million start of 2010’s Just Wright and 2.8 percent ahead of the $15.08 million launch of 2008’s Semi-Pro. Uncle Drew may have received a bit of a last-minute boost this weekend from solid late-breaking critical reviews.

Uncle Drew took in an estimated $6.13 million on Friday (with just an estimated $1.1 million of that gross coming from Thursday night shows that began at 7PM), decreased 15.5 percent on Saturday to take in $5.18 million and is estimated to decline 19.1 percent on Sunday to take in $4.19 million. While Saturday’s hold is a bit concerning for Uncle Drew going forward, on the other hand the film received a strong A rating on CinemaScore, which suggests that Uncle Drew is going over very well with audiences. Uncle Drew will have a very good chance of holding up well going forward, especially given the lack of live-action comedies on July’s release schedule.

Warner Bros. releases Ocean’s 8 and Tag claimed fifth and sixth place this weekend with respective weekend grosses of $8.04 million and $5.64 million. Ocean’s 8 was down only 30.4 percent from last weekend, while Tag declined just 31.7 percent. This weekend’s holds for both films were made even more impressive given the added presence of both Sicario: Day of the Soldado and Uncle Drew in the marketplace this weekend. Respective total grosses stand at a very healthy $114.71 million for Ocean’s 8 in 24 days and at a solid $40.89 million for the modestly-budgeted Tag in 17 days. Internationally, Ocean’s 8 grossed an estimated $13.8 million this weekend and Tag took in an estimated $3.7 million. To date, Ocean’s 8 has grossed $95.0 million internationally and $209.7 million globally, while Tag has grossed $7.4 million internationally and $48.3 million globally.

Meanwhile, FIP’s Sanju was off to a strong start with an estimated $2.55 million from 356 locations. That gave the Hindi-language film a per-location average of $7,163 for the frame and ranked Sanju in eighth place among all films this weekend. Sanju set a new opening weekend record for distributor FIP, as the film opened 5.1 percent ahead of the $2.43 million debut of previous FIP record-holder 2015’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. Internationally, Sanju took in an estimated $21.61 million in India (which represented the second largest opening ever in India for a Fox Star film) and an estimated $548,495 in the United Kingdom.
