Family Movies Thrive Against Spooky ‘Weird’ Sequel
In weekend box office news that isn’t about Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, DreamWorks Animation The villains earned an additional $9.77 million (-40%) in its third weekend. That will earn Universal’s $80 million animated comedy $57.5 million domestically and $148 million worldwide. It will be on PVO
With Downton Abbey: A New Era and Top Gun: Maverick playing grown-ups (Tom Cruise’s sequel is pretty kid-friendly, but I don’t know if kids today care about a sequel to a movie their parents loved in the summer of 1986), he not much for young children here (at best) Jurassic World: Dominion June 10 and Pixar Light year June 17. Sonic 2 earned $348 million worldwide while Sony Unexplored jumps to $400 million. Although it’s a more kid-friendly movie than The Crimes of Grindelwald, Warner Bros.’ Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets earned $3.9 million (-52%) over the weekend. This represents a total of $86 million domestically and $364 million worldwide. It’s not good for JK Rowling who was indiscriminately given $200 million from the prequel threequel. Having a rival PG-13 Wizarding Fantasy on the market didn’t help, but it’s a lifetime.
Although it lost 1/3 of its screens and faced another multiverse movie, Everything, everywhere, all at once didn’t quite collapse. The A24 release grossed $3.3 million (-40%) over the weekend from 1,542 theaters for a cumulative $41.5 million. it will pass Hereditary ($44 million) next weekend to become A24’s third-highest national earner. Let it pass lady bird ($49 million) and Uncut Gems ($50 million) depends on it holding up over the next month. The pickings are thin before Top Gun: Maverick and Bob’s Burgers: The Movie Memorial Day weekend. Even though Downton Abbey: A New Era play like Addams Family 2 (an $18 million debut after a $33 million predecessor), I wouldn’t be shocked to see it stabilize again after this MCU-driven fall. Although, under normal circumstances, -40% is a decent catch anyway.
$70 million by Robert Eggers The man from the north will earn $2.77 million (-56%) weekend three for a combined $28 million domestic and $52 million worldwide. The lost city will earn $2.5 million (-35%) despite losing 698 theaters for an overall cume of $94.4 million and $163 million. The Sandra Bullock/Channing Tatum rom-com adventure is still expected to hit $100 million upon completion. Nicholas Cage The unbearable weight of massive talent will earn $1.525 million (-61%) for a measly $16.1 million over 17 days. by Liam Neeson Memory dropped 61% on weekend two to gross $1.22 million and a miserable ten-day gross of $5.3 million. The Batman lost 930 theaters over weekend ten, so it grossed $105,000 (-86%) at 202 theaters for a cumulative $369.2 million. I guess putting it on HBO Max after 45 days had almost no theatrical consequences.
