Weekend Box Office Report
July 13 - July 15, 2018




By Daniel Garris

Weekend Actuals Update:

With actuals now in, Sony’s Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation finished right in line with yesterday’s studio estimate with a first place debut of $44.076 million.

Disney’s Ant-Man and The Wasp came in just ahead of its weekend estimate with a second place take of $29.098 million, while Universal’s Skyscraper finished a bit below its estimate with a third place start of $24.905 million.

Other weekend actuals for the frame include: Incredibles 2 ($16.263 million), Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom ($16.199 million), The First Purge ($9.313 million), Sorry to Bother You ($4.209 million from 805 locations), Sicario: Day of the Soldado ($3.881 million), Uncle Drew ($3.187 million), Ocean’s 8 ($2.907 million) & Won’t You Be My Neighbor? ($1.948 million from 868 locations).

On the platform front, NEON’s Three Identical Strangers grossed $1.203 million from 167 locations, Bleecker Street’s Leave No Trace took in $1.173 million from 311 locations and A24’s Eighth Grade started out strong with $263,797 from 4 locations in New York and Los Angeles.

Weekend Estimates Update:

Sony’s Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation was off to a healthy first place start this weekend with an estimated $44.10 million. The third installment of the computer animated franchise featuring the voice of Adam Sandler debuted towards the higher end of expectations. Hotel Transylvania 3 opened in between the opening weekend takes of 2012’s Hotel Transylvania and 2015’s Hotel Transylvania 2, as the film started out 3.7 percent ahead of the $42.52 million launch of Hotel Transylvania and 9.0 percent behind the $48.46 million start of Hotel Transylvania 2. Hotel Transylvania 3 registered the second largest debut ever for a Sony Pictures Animation film (behind only Hotel Transylvania 2). With the addition of $1.28 million from early preview shows for Amazon Prime members back on June 30, the total gross for Hotel Transylvania 3 stands at $45.38 million.

Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation started out with $16.88 million on Friday (which included an estimated $2.6 million from Thursday night shows that began at 5PM), decreased 10.7 percent on Saturday to take in $15.07 million and is estimated to decline 19.3 percent on Sunday to gross $12.16 million. Critical reviews for Hotel Transylvania 3 have been lukewarm, but the film looks to be going over significantly better with audiences, as Hotel Transylvania 3 received a healthy A- rating on CinemaScore (which matched the A- ratings for both Hotel Transylvania and Hotel Transylvania 2). Holding power for each of the previous Hotel Transylvania films was aided by the pre-Halloween season. While Hotel Transylvania 3 doesn’t have the benefit of the pre-Halloween season; having the benefit of stronger summer midweek business should make up for that going forward for Hotel Transylvania 3.

Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation grossed an estimated $46.4 million internationally this weekend from roughly half of the overall international marketplace. The current international total for Hotel Transylvania 3 stands at $54.8 million, which places the film’s global total at $100.2 million. International debuts for Hotel Transylvania 3 this weekend included $8.6 million in Mexico, $5.8 million in Russia, $3.8 million in Brazil, $2.7 million in Spain and $2.1 million in Argentina. Hotel Transylvania 3 has also grossed $10.2 million thus far in Australia, where the film is in its third week of release. Hotel Transylvania 3 will open in Germany on Tuesday and in France and the United Kingdom later this month.

Disney’s Ant-Man and The Wasp placed in second with an estimated $28.84 million. That represented a sharp 62.0 percent decline from the film’s opening weekend performance. In comparison, 2015’s Ant-Man declined 56.5 percent in its second weekend to gross $24.91 million. Ant-Man and The Wasp flew past the $100 million domestic mark this weekend and has grossed $132.83 million through ten days of release. That places the film 25.0 percent ahead of the $106.220 million ten-day take of Ant-Man.

Internationally, Ant-Man and The Wasp grossed an estimated $35.3 million this weekend, as the film continued to play in roughly half of the overall international marketplace. This weekend saw Ant-Man and The Wasp debut with an estimated $3.8 million in India. To date, Ant-Man and The Wasp has grossed a strong $150.9 million internationally and $283.7 million globally. Current international totals for Ant-Man and The Wasp include $34.5 million in South Korea, $11.5 million in Mexico, $9.7 million in Australia, $9.4 million in Russia, $9.0 million in Indonesia, $7.8 million in Brazil, $7.6 million in Taiwan, $6.1 million in Hong Kong, $4.8 million in the Philippines, $4.6 million in Malaysia, $4.3 million in Thailand and $4.3 million in Spain. Next weekend Ant-Man and The Wasp will open in additional international markets, including France and the Netherlands.

Universal and Legendary’s Skyscraper arrived with an estimated third place haul of $25.49 million. The Dwayne Johnson led action film opened below expectations, which had tended to range from $30 million to $35 million heading into the weekend. Skyscraper also opened a significant 28.7 percent below the $35.75 million start of the Dwayne Johnson led Rampage back in April. Potential for Skyscraper was likely limited somewhat by opening so soon after Rampage and from the overall competition in the current marketplace (especially from films such as Ant-Man and The Wasp, Incredibles 2 and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom). Mixed critical reviews didn’t help matters for Skyscraper this weekend either.

One early positive note for Skyscraper is that the film held up relatively well on Saturday. Skyscraper began its run with $9.28 million on Friday (which included an estimated $1.95 million from Thursday night shows that began at 7PM), declined a slim 3.0 percent on Saturday to gross $9.00 million and is estimated to decrease 20.0 percent on Sunday to take in $7.20 million. Skyscraper looks to be going over better with audiences than it has with critics, as the film received a solid B+ rating on CinemaScore. Good word of mouth could help Skyscraper going forward, but at the same time, the film will soon be facing ever more direct competition as Sony’s The Equalizer 2 enters the marketplace this coming weekend, while Paramount’s Mission: Impossible – Fallout and Warner’s Teen Titans GO! To The Movies both arrive the following week on July 27.

Internationally, Skyscraper debuted with an estimated $40.4 million. That places the film’s global launch at $65.9 million. International debuts for Skyscraper this weekend included $4.7 million in South Korea, $3.7 million in Mexico, $2.6 million in Russia, $2.4 million in Australia, $2.4 million in the United Kingdom, $2.1 million in Indonesia and $2.1 million in Taiwan. Next weekend Skyscraper will open in additional markets, including China and Italy.

Disney’s Incredibles 2 counted to impress this weekend with an estimated fourth place fifth weekend take of $16.22 million. Incredibles 2 declined 42.9 percent from last weekend, which represented a solid hold; especially with the added competition the film faced from both Hotel Transylvania 3 and Skyscraper. This weekend, Incredibles 2 passed both 2016’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and 2008’s The Dark Knight to move into ninth place on the all-time unadjusted domestic list. The 31-day total for Incredibles 2 stands at an incredible $535.82 million.

This weekend, Incredibles 2 took in an estimated $33.3 million internationally. The film’s international performance this weekend was driven by a $12.1 million launch in the United Kingdom. To date, Incredibles 2 has grossed $321.1 million internationally and $856.9 million globally. Current international totals for Incredibles 2 include $51.5 million in China, $36.0 million in Mexico, $29.5 million in Australia, $23.1 million in Brazil, $17.7 million in France, $15.1 million in Russia, $11.9 million in Argentina and $10.2 million in Colombia. Next weekend Incredibles 2 will open in South Korea and Hong Kong.

Universal’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom rounded out the weekend’s top 5 with an estimated $15.52 million. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom stabilized nicely this weekend, as the film was down a very respectable 45.8 percent. The 24-day total for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom stands at $363.30 million. That places the film 8.7 percent ahead of the $334.22 million 24-day haul of last year’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Internationally, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom grossed an estimated $26.7 million this weekend, including a strong $12.7 million debut in Japan. To date, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has grossed $771.4 million internationally and a mighty $1.135 billion globally.

Fellow Universal release The First Purge followed in sixth with an estimated $9.13 million. The First Purge was down a respectable 47.5 percent from last weekend, as the film had a much better than usual second weekend hold for The Purge franchise thanks in part to last weekend being deflated by the film’s Wednesday opening and to receiving an added boost this weekend from Friday the 13th. The First Purge is on the brink of the $50 million domestic mark with a twelve-day gross of $49.51 million. Internationally, The First Purge grossed an estimated $6.2 million this weekend. Respective current international and global totals for The First Purge stand at $23.1 million and $72.6 million.

On the heels of a strong platform launch last weekend, Annapurna’s Sorry to Bother You had a solid expansion into semi-wide release with an estimated seventh place take of $4.26 million. The critically acclaimed film directed by Boots Riley registered a per-location average of $5,289 from 805 locations this weekend. Sorry to Bother You grossed $1.49 million on Friday, was unchanged on Saturday with $1.49 million and is estimated to decline 15.0 percent on Sunday to take in $1.27 million. The ten-day total for Sorry to Brother You stands at $5.32 million.

On the platform front, NEON’s Three Identical Strangers took in an estimated $1.18 million from 167 locations (for a strong per-location average of $7,072), while Bleecker Street’s Leave No Trace grossed an estimated $1.16 million from 311 locations (for a per-location average of $3,726). Respective 17-day totals for the critically acclaimed films stand at $2.52 million for Three Identical Strangers and at $2.12 million for Leave No Trace.

In other platform news this weekend, A24’s critically acclaimed Eighth Grade was off to a very promising platform launch with an estimated $252 K from 4 locations in New York and Los Angeles. That gave Eighth Grade a terrific per-location average of $63,071 for the frame. Eighth Grade will expand to additional cities this coming Friday, including Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Phoenix, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington D.C.
