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

D next week, but the absolute lack of children’s films over the next month, as well as Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange 2 being more drag me to hell that Oz the Great and Mighty, means the toon targeting kids is expected to stick around for the next month. Same sonic the hedgehog 2, which grossed $7.1 million (-38%) for a new domestic cume of $169 million. It has now exceeded the gross of Sing 2, No Time to Die and Eternals and will soon move Black Widow ($183 million) and F9 ($173 million) on Covid-era charts.

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.
