Box Office Report For June 21-23


Welcome back everyone 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 remake and a hotly anticipated sequel entered the marketplace, alongside the latest effort from action filmmaker Luc Besson. The sequel in question was Toy Story 4, the remake was Child’s Play, and Besson’s flick was Anna. How did they all do? Let us take a look right now at just that…

Taking the top spot, unsurprisingly, was Toy Story 4, though perhaps shockingly Pixar’s latest also fell victim to the summer drought and potential non superhero franchise exhaustion that’s been plaguing the box office. To be fair, an estimated $118 million is still great, but the studio had been projecting quite a bit more. This won’t hurt its potential Oscar run later on in the year, but anyone expecting it to set box office records needs to readjust their expectations now. We shall see if it has some solid animated legs in the weeks to come.

At number two was the Child’s Play remake, taking in about $14 million to also open below expectations. This wasn’t much lower than estimates, and with a low budget, no one is really crying, but it continues the evidence that audiences may actually be hungering for something new. These retreads just aren’t cutting it anymore…

Opening just outside the top ten was Anna, which was only able to make the eleventh spot this weekend. With $3.5 million in funds, audiences more or less ignored Luc Besson’s newest action endeavor.

Among limited releases, Wild Rose wasn’t fully able to take advantage of solid buzz and reviews, only making about 56K from four screens, while also on a quartet of screens was the documentary Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am, which made 44K…
