Box Office Report For May 3-5


Welcome back to the weekly box office report! Each and every Sunday, expect a look at what made the most money in theaters, as well as just how all of the new releases fared. This week, it was once again all about Avengers: Endgame. It’s no secret that it was going to be massive second weekend, but did it set any more records? Last week, it went and set basically all of the records. How did it do and how much did it make this time around? Let us take a look right now at just that…

The most obvious repeat champion in box office history, Avengers: Endgame was number one again. Just barely missing the record for the biggest second week ever, it still took in a gargantuan $145 million. The domestic cume stands at $619 million, good for ninth all time, with eighth coming by the time you read this. Worldwide, it passed Titanic to become the second biggest film ever, now standing at almost $2.2 billion. Before long, Avatar will fall and it will be all alone in first place. Time will tell if it beats Star Wars: The Force Awakens domestically, but this Marvel Cinematic Universe offering is easily one of the biggest releases ever, without question.

Coming in at number two was The Intruder, which capitalized on its low budget to see an $11 million take as a win. These sorts of quick thrillers never cost too much, so this was actually a solid weekend to put it out into the marketplace.

Number three, however, was kind of screwed by its release date. Long Shot, despite strong reviews (mine comes tomorrow, but it’s a great movie), only could muster up a little over $10 million. Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron fell before Thanos, sadly…

Fourth place went to Uglydolls, which made just $8.5 million, failing as kids counter programming to Avengers: Endgame. Seems like parents simply took their kids to the MCU offering instead, doesn’t it?

Among indie/smaller debuts, the latin superhero offering El Chicano opened outside the top ten, taking in 700K from over 600 screens, while Non-Fiction made 29K playing on only a pair of screens…
