Box Office Report For June 28-30


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 high concept romantic comedy and a horror sequel faced off with last week’s champion, Toy Story 4. Plus, Avengers: Endgame upped its theater count again in a bid to become the highest grossing film of all time. How did they all do? Let us take a look right now at just that…

Taking the top spot once again was Toy Story 4, dropping about 52%. That made for a haul this weekend of just shy of $58 million, still almost triple what anything else made. Disney and Pixar are perhaps not over the moon with how this hasn’t been a record setter, but the movie still is performing more than well enough. We’ll be seeing plenty more of it during the forthcoming awards season.

At number two was this week’s horror sequel, Annabelle Comes Home. $20.3 million makes for the smallest debut of a film within the world of The Conjuring, but it’s no sign that the franchise is fading. It does, however, fall in line with how sequels that aren’t comic book properties have been performing this summer…

Third place went to Yesterday, the musical team up of filmmakers Danny Boyle and Richard Curtis. Reviews were muted yet overall positive, so a cume of $17 million counts as slightly over performing for the flick. It likely won’t have legs, but with a budget of only $26 million, making a profit won’t be too difficult.

Returning to the top ten was Avengers: Endgame, all in an effort to dethrone Avatar as the international all time box office champion. Doubling its theater count brought the Marvel film another $5.5 million, giving it $841.3 million domestically, while the global total is up to $2.76 billion. This puts it a mere $26 million behind James Cameron’s flick. Can the movie creep across the finish line? We shall see in the coming weeks…
