Box Office Report For June 7-9

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, a pair of new releases entered the marketplace, led by a pair of sequels. One was an animated sequel in The Secret Life of Pets 2, while the other was a franchise capper in X-Men: Dark Phoenix. How did they all do? Let us take a look right now at just that…

Taking the top spot was The Secret Life of Pets 2, though much like last week, this sequel took in only a fraction of what the last installment did. With $47.1 million, it’s a huge come down from the $104 million or so that the prior engagement began with. While there still could be a third one in this series, it’s no longer the foregone conclusion that it once was.

At number two was X-Men: Dark Phoenix, opening with a massively disappointing $33 million. Consider this, the Dark Phoenix opening millions lower than the first weekend of any X-Men related outing so far, even the porously received X-Men: Origins – Wolverine. It was a disaster, any way that you slice it. The franchise is ending not with a bang, but with a very small whimper.

Hitting on just four screens but taking in nearly 250K was the crowd pleaser Late Night, while seven screens got The Last Black Man in San Francisco a start of 230K. Both look to expand in the weeks to come as Amazon Studios and A24 respectively plan their summer counter programming attack.

Among other limited release titles, Pavarotti made 142K from nineteen screens, This One’s For The Ladies made 16K on one single screen, while Framing John DeLorean only took in about 9K playing on just one screen as well…

Here now is what the top ten looked like at the box office for this weekend:
