Box Office Report For July 12-14


Welcome back everyone to the weekly box office report! As always, 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 looks to continue its financial dominance, while it’s joined by a creature feature in Crawl, as well as a throwback action comedy in Stuber, among wide releases. How did they all do? Let us take a look right now at just that…

Taking the top spot this again week, with no surprise, was Spider-Man: Far From Home. Catching $45.3 million more in its web, the superhero tale is now up to about $275 million domestically and almost $850 million globally. Suffice to say, Marvel is going to have another of their comic book flicks crack the $1 billion mark.

Staying right a number two is Pixar’s Toy Story 4. Another $20.6 million continues to show how well liked the animated franchise is. With consistently good holds like this, there’s a good chance the film will end up coming close to the gross of Toy Story 3. Either way, it’s a certifiable hit, no doubt about that.

Debuting in third place, we have Crawl, which managed an estimated $12 million despite not screening for critics. What’s more, once my colleagues saw it, they by and large enjoyed it, potentially meaning that Paramount left money on the table by not having more confidence in the killer alligator movie…

At number four is Stuber, only making a shade over $8 million. This has to be a bit disappointing for Fox, especially after such a positive reception earlier this year when they did a work in progress screening of the action comedy at SXSW. For now, it seems like Dave Bautista isn’t quite the action draw the studios hope he’ll become.

Only hitting at 17, but with an incredible haul, was The Farewell. Taking in over $351K on just a quartet of screens, that was good for a per theater average of $87,833. That number is the best of 2019 so far, for a limited release. A24 should see some solid business in the weeks to come as their family drama expands wider.

Among other indie/limited release titles, The Art of Self-Defense (which I moderated a Q&A for yesterday afternoon in Brooklyn) took in more than $121K on seven screens, while Sword of Trust made a little over $22K on a pair of screens. The latter likely won’t make a whole hell of a lot more for IFC, but Bleeker Street should catch some more business for the former when it opens wider next weekend…
