Box Office Report For May 10-12


Happy Mother’s Day to all of you, and welcome back to the weekly box office report! Each and every Sunday, you can 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 a history making haul for Avengers: Endgame, though there was a challenge to first place by a popular newcomer. How did the challenger do and how much did they both end up making? Let us take a look right now at just that…

Managing to hold on to the crown for another week, Avengers: Endgame was number one again. Taking in a very strong $63 million, it soared past the $700 million mark. The domestic cume stands now at $723 million, good for third all time, having shot past another Marvel Cinematic Universe offering in Black Panther. In the next few days, it will become number two, domestically. Worldwide, it now stands at nearly $2.5 billion. We’ll update as more records fall, but this gargantuan MCU flick is doing all of the expected business, and more.

Coming in at number two was Pokemon Detective Pikachu, which very nearly pulled an upset. Still, settling for runner up and grabbing $58 million is nothing to sneeze at. As long as it has a decent hold next week, this is going to be a very profitable movie for Warner Bros, along with one of the better received video game adaptations to date.

At number three, however, was the largely ignored The Hustle, which could only make $13.5 million in a counter programming attempt. Reviews also were not especially kind, which did not do much to help the film either…

Sixth place went to Poms, which made just $5.1 million, not leaving much of a mark, while in ninth place with the biopic Tolkien, taking in a mere $2.1 million when all was said and done.

Among indie/smaller debuts, Biggest Little Farm played on five screens and made slightly over 100K, All Is True took in 46K from four screens, while Charlie Says made only 39K, even though it was playing on 39 screens in total…
