Box Office Report For July 5-7

Welcome back everyone to the weekly box office report! Hope all of you had a fun and safe Fourth of July holiday! As you all know with this column, 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, the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe offering in Spider-Man: Far From Home, as well as the horror outing Midsommar, faced off with last week’s champion, Toy Story 4. How did they all do? Let us take a look right now at just that…

Taking the top spot this week, surprising literally no one on the planet, was Spider-Man: Far From Home, the newest Marvel smash. The superhero film took in $93.6 million just these past three days, though if you include Tuesday on (it opened up in advance of Independence Day, for obvious reasons), the haul increases substantially, all the way up to $185 million. Globally, it’s already nearing $600 million. Yup, it’s safe to say that the MCU has another big time winner on its hands.

Falling to number two was last week’s champ, the Pixar hit Toy Story 4. Another $34.3 million gives the animated flick more than $300 million, domestically. Specifically, it’s up to $306.5 million, with plenty more still to come for the movie. Disney/Pixar will continue to smile and count its money…

Holding at third place was Yesterday, the crowd pleasing musical team up of filmmakers Danny Boyle and Richard Curtis. As a reminder, reviews were somewhat muted yet overall positive, so a third week cume of $10.7 million is quite good, only making for a 36% drop. It’s showing decent legs, so with a budget of only $26 million, making a profit hasn’t be too difficult, as it stands at $36.8 million and counting.

Hitting at the sixth spot was Ari Aster’s Midsommar, which critics (including myself) absolutely loved, while audiences were slightly puzzled by. $6.5 million for the weekend gives it a total of $10.9 million so far, as it opened on Wednesday before the July 4th holiday. The weeks to come likely won’t be especially kind to it, but for A24, this is probably already a small scale success story. Now, to see if it can get any of the awards buzz that Hereditary received last year…

*Nothing of note opened in limited release once again this week, in terms of the box office, at least. Maybe next weekend?*
